{Daily Wedding Tips} What's the Price of your Custom Louisville Wedding Cake?

Source



Sometimes a bakery will have a really low “base price” for a wedding cake but if you add any custom embellishments, the price goes up significantly. There are many factors concerning and affecting the price of a wedding cake. 

Below are the things that affect price:
  • Number of servings
  • Type of cake covering: buttercream, fondant, ganache, etc.
  • Type of cake design: piping, moldings, quilting, embossing, etc.
  • Sugarpaste or gumpaste cake embellishments: handmade flowers, ribbons, sashes, bows, draping pearls, shoes, butterflies, dragonflies, custom panel work, etc.
  • Color and finish: colored fondant, colored gumpaste, paint work on the cake or embellishments, metallics, edible glitter, etc.

When choosing your baker, do your research to find out what is realistic. Find out what cake artists in the area are capable of making that type of cake you want. Check independent reviews and pictures to be sure that the cake designer is up to the task.

After you have done your research, here's an example question you might ask a cake designer in approaching how to spend your cake budget: 

"My budget for my wedding cake is $ (your price) for a 100 person cake. I really want a fondant cake with sugar roses and calla lilies. Can you work with my budget? What type of cake can I expect to be able to afford?"
