Jul 01, 2018

The cost of a wedding cake will depend on a number of factors but allocating a portion of your wedding budget for a real cake is definitely a worthwhile investment. Whether a custom creation specially designed for you or a selection from a collection of pre-determined designs, cutting into a cake and sharing it with your guests is an experience to remember.

A few tips :

  • Showcase your cake as a centrepiece at your wedding reception.
  • Serve it as a dessert; you may order additional sheet cakes that are less costly which can be cut and served if you have a large guest list.
