    I've been getting quotes, (Nashville, TN), and for a three tier cake that serves 100 I'm being told around 600-640! Wish it wasn't so much.

    My cake will feed 110 people and will cost $700 with delivery. We chose a pretty intricate design so we knew we’d be paying a lot for it.

    $600 sounds like an amazing price to me for four layers of that size with that decor! For just 3 layers: 10”,8”,6” we’re looking at $600 with decor, stand and delivery.

    We skipped a cake because the quotes were $10-$15 a slice. I didn’t want to spend 2 grand on something I didn’t care about so we did different desserts instead. $600 for that cake seems cheap to me but it might depend on where you live.

    We're paying $700 for a two tier cake that feeds 75, as well as a specialty groom's cake. The original poster's cake would be more than $600 at my bakery in Memphis. My cake isn't super complicated. This is the inspiration, but with buttercream.

    We're paying $600 for a 3 tier cake that was meant for 120 (we only have 98 attending now though, so extra cake for us! lol). Ours was also on the expensive side I think because it's gluten and dairy free since I have allergies. From what I've heard, about $500 is average for a 3 tier cake. So $600 for a regular 4 tier cake seems normal!

    We're doing a small cake 2 tier for cutting and then a sheet cake for the guests. After we saw the cost of cakes, it just didn't make sense to pay that much. It's crazy how much everything for a wedding is.

    While $600 doesn't seem like a high price, it's all do to the multiple tiers of the cake. Would you be willing to take a tier or 2 off and have a smaller cake on display and perhaps a sheet cake or something in the back to be served from? If you're set on a 4 tier cake, that price really isn't bad at all.

    Oh my gosh, we haven't started pricing cakes yet, but reading these quotes are making me really think just making a cute lil cutting cake with my sister isn't such a bad idea! Smiley surprise

    We’re paying $390 for 4 dozen custom whoopie pies, our 2 tier wedding cake and grooms cake plus delivery and set up. I was lucky to find a local amazing baker who has great prices.

    Our baker in Annapolis, MD will be creating our cake based off of this one. We're passing on flowers, topper, and stand rentals as we're DIY-ing that ourselves. For 100 servings, with 2 flavors, of a two tier cake and supplemental sheet cake is $500.
