How much does a wedding cake cost?

Having a wedding cake at your reception is one of the biggest (and sweetest!) traditions. But what does a wedding cake cost? While wedding cake prices do vary depending on the size and style of your cake, the average cost of a wedding cake in the U.S. is around $500 with most couples spending between $300 to $700. While this may sound like a lot for a dessert, you’d be surprised as to how much work goes into creating a gorgeous wedding cake.

Which factors impact wedding cake prices?

Not surprisingly, the bigger and more elaborate a wedding cake is, the higher the cost of a wedding cake will be. A wedding cake featuring lots of design elements, including sugar flowers, fondant details, many tiers, and unique shapes, will cost more than a simpler cake with classic buttercream icing, a few fresh flowers, and fewer tiers. While your flavor choice likely won’t have an impact on your wedding cake’s price, requesting certain custom flavors may raise your wedding cake cost a bit.

What is the starting price of a wedding cake?

The starting price of a wedding cake can vary depending on the type of frosting you prefer. Cakes covered in fondant, a sugary paste-like icing, tend to cost more than cakes covered in buttercream (frosting made from butter and sugar). Fondant is more durable than buttercream (and it won’t melt in the summertime!), but it’s generally thought of as less tasty. The starting price of a fondant wedding cake is usually about $5 per slice, while the starting price of a buttercream wedding cake is about $4 per slice. Again, these wedding cake prices will vary even more based on decorations, size, etc.

What’s included in the cost of a wedding cake?

This varies from cake baker to cake baker. Usually, the cost of your wedding cake will include the cake itself, a design consultation where your baker will create a custom design just for your wedding, caketasting, delivery and set up. Some cake bakers will also include supplies like cake stands, cake toppers, and cutting utensils, though you may have to provide these on your own. And some wedding cake prices include an extra top tier of your wedding cake or anniversary cake for you and your spouse to enjoy on your first anniversary.

What types of desserts do wedding cake bakers offer?

About 54 percent of couples choose to serve an additional wedding dessert, aside from or in addition to wedding cake, at their receptions. Cake bakers may offer a variety of these alternative wedding desserts, including cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, pies, pastries, doughnuts, and more—the starting price for cupcakes is about $3 per cupcake. There are also groom’s cakes, which are a tradition particularly in the South. We’ve seen these groom’s cakes shaped like everything from sports paraphernalia to burritos!

When should I hire a wedding cake baker?

We recommend hiring a wedding cake baker at least six months before your wedding day—these vendors do tend to book up quickly! Start by reading online reviews of wedding cake bakers near you, and selecting a few to interview (in person whenever possible). You’ll typically have a wedding cake tasting after you’ve booked your baker, where you’ll select your cake’s flavors.

Beautiful Confections: Finding Perfect Wedding Cakes in NYC

There are so many brilliant bakers in New York City, so the sky's the limit when it comes to NYC wedding cakes. From magnificent multi-tiered layer cakes to lifelike edible art to trendy cake alternatives like perfect pies or alcohol-infused puddings or dazzling doughnut cakes, New York City cake bakers can do it all. And here’s some good news: While it’s absolutely true that the cost of NYC wedding florists, venues, and photographers tends to be higher than the national average, chances are that you won’t spend much more on wedding cakes in NYC than you would anywhere else in the country.

Who’s Baking Wedding Cakes in NYC?

The quick answer is that there are a lot of bakers — both celebrity chefs and DIYers alike — creating wedding cakes in NYC. A lot of bakers in New York City stick to simple or traditional wedding cake designs and focus heavily on the flavors, but there are also bakers who have turned cake making into a true art form. These cake designers draw inspiration from nature, architecture, and textiles, molding hyper-realistic flowers from modeling chocolate, building towering skyscrapers out of cake, and wrapping frosting in edible lace and pearls that look almost too real to eat. Want your wedding cake to match your wedding jewelry or your wedding dress exactly? There’s a baker creating NYC wedding cakes who can make it happen.

When to Begin Looking at NYC Wedding Cakes

Narrowing down your options will be a matter of clarifying your vision and consulting your wedding budget. Ideally, you’ll start researching cake designs and bakers as soon as you get engaged, but you probably won’t choose your baker until you have picked your wedding colors and the overall vibe of the day. Keep in mind, too, that you won’t be able to finalize your wedding cake order until you have at least a rough idea of how large your wedding guest list will be.

Most bakers in New York City are booked at least six months in advance — or more during peak wedding season. That means that booking early is always going to be your best bet if you have your heart set on a specific baker.

Questions to Ask Your Baker

When you’re looking for wedding cakes in NYC, your adventure will begin with a call or an email to ask if the baker, bakery, or cake designer you’re interested in booking is available when you’re getting married. When the answer is yes, schedule a face-to-face meeting. As tempted as you might be to handle booking a baker via email, you’re much more likely to get the wedding cake you really want if you spend some time with your baker, asking questions and looking at (and tasting) samples.

Be sure to ask about designs, filling choices and cake flavors, pricing, decorations, and delivery. Will they provide cake stands? Do they have vegan, gluten-free, or dairy-free options, if you need them? Can they work with your NYC wedding florist if you want fresh flowers on your cake? Ask as many questions as it takes to find the right baker.

Remember, your wedding cake will be one of the focal points of your reception and it’s something wedding guests look forward to. Whether you opt for a ready-made design or a wildly creative custom cake, choose your flavors wisely because wedding guests would much rather dig into a delicious cake than a bland but beautiful couture confection.
