I know costs can vary by area and design, but can anyone share pics of their cake and costs?

Our venue said a cake was "included" and low and behold only a vanilla cake with buttercream was included. We asked how much to do alternating "naked" chocolate and vanilla tiers and were told it's a $2 upgrade per person. Curious on thoughts on this. Here's a picture:

    This is our cake inspiration picture (minus the candies and with different flowers)!

    We're having a large four-tiered cake with buttercream icing, a silver drip, and silver borders. We'll have two flavor/filling combinations - the top and bottom will be one, and the two middle will be the other.

    Ours is also included with our venue's package and the only upcharge we have is the cost of the silver since our baker doesn't regularly stock edible metallics - we were quoted $50 total for this on a cake which will serve approximately 200 guests.

    In addition to the two-tier cake, we also had 4 sheet cakes of different flavors. We had enough to fed 160 people (we had 118 guests) and it was $230. Flowers were not included in the cost, they were $35 from our florist.

    That's the cake we are getting made for us. The inside will be white cake dyed rainbow. The outside, will go from light blue to light purple and up to white. Itll be heart shaped as well. We are getting family to make it so it's only going to cost about $35

    We’re getting a 4 tier cake with alternating flavors on each tier and a whipped icing. We want to save the top for our first anniversary. We’re ordering from the best bakery in town. This is our inspiration pic, we have to get the flowers from our florist. We were quoted at $440. Honestly we could probably get it done for less but we are just obsessed with the flavor combos and the quality of this bakery so we aren’t even going to bother continuing to look!

    We’re having a 2 tiered cake just for personal family and buying Costco sheet cakes for our guests. These are the inspiration pictures for our cake. Rainbow layers on the inside that are vanilla flavored cake, with simple rasberry filling. Then the waves in the buttercream frosting as details with the cascading succulents and flowers. She said she would makes all the decor out of sugar flowers too. We were quoted $155 for this cake and free delivery.
