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'm starting to think I found a great deal with our baker... We're paying less than $2 per serving for out semi naked cake.

    Mine is about the exact same as yours but four flavors with a small gluten free batch. $420 with delivery, cake stands/decor, and tear down at the end of the night!

    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.

    My sister did the same with cupcakes and it was a hit!! Barely had any leftover and everyone loved the flavor options. Don't do cake, stick with cupcakes

    312 mini cupcakes (because 312 is cheaper then 300 where we are using) and a top tier will be just around $300 plus whatever tax and delivery charges there will be.

    We are paying $2.50/cupcake. But I've been concerned about how many to order! What do you guys suggest serving wise for cupcakes? (We are having 95 ppl)

    I think my baker said 1.5 servings pp? Your baker should have a good idea @kaeli.

    The bakery I'm using is $3.75 a slice for tier cakes. Or $.90 per cupcake. Free delivery and set up within 25 miles, after that it is $.50 per mile! Smiley smile

    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.
