So I am really curious about everyone's costs of their cake. I plan on doing about 150 cupcakes with 6 different flavors. Along with that I plan to have a little 6 inch cake to cut. Waiting to hear back for some bids... so what is your cake costs?
I am doing something similar - 200 cupcakes (five different flavors and icing) with a 6" topper for $1.75/cupcake. Under $500 with all that, a 9" grooms cake with fondant, and delivery and set-up (on a six tier stand, rental from baker) day-of. I lucked out when I found this start-up. Most of the established bakeries in the area (DC) charge $3/cupcake.
Definitely depends on the area and your choice of Bakery. I'm getting mine from Sam's club and the tiered cake for 66 people is $65 and I'm paying $15ish per 30 cupcakes for the rest of my guests.
