Hi Ladies and happy Friday!

I'm curious to know how much everyone has paid/budgeted for their wedding cake? As I've mentioned on here before, I have a slight cake obsession (literally, it was one of my first words) so I do want a beautiful wedding cake. However, I've gotten the quote back & she is asking for $700.00 (4 tiers). This includes delivery, but is this normal? Things are adding up & I'd love to hear some feedback before I sign her quote! ? Smiley smile

    3 Tiers-all different flavor, set up delivery, etc included. Mine was $256.52

    Enough to feed 75 people. We only invited 50 and there were only crumbs left at the end of the night. It was really good cake! Smiley laugh

    Ours was about $500 including delivery, and that was enough to feed ~125 people, plus 6 dozen sugar cookies (they were "groom's cookies" for H)

    $525 or $535 delivery included. The cake fed 165 people. We had the dummy cake for display and we kept the flavors pretty basic to avoid extra charges. It was so yummy!!

    Mine was $516 (random) for three tiers and 100 people, different flavors each tier and a fairly basic design and decoration. Includes delivery and a free anniversary cake.

    Our cake is included in our venue but we added some upgrades like fresh fruit filling and a fancy design for about $150 for 100 people and 3 tiers with delivery.
