The Real Thing

Mar 01, 2018

There is nothing like having the real thing, and we are talking about wedding cakes here. Although most hotels and restaurants offer a tiered wedding cake as part of their banquet packages, they are ‘dummy’ cakes, impersonal and having been used time and again. How often does one see a particular cake appearing in wedding photos over and over. That is the reality when one decides to forgo having a custom-made wedding cake.

Many perceive that ordering a wedding cake is expensive. Yes, it can be. But it can also be achieved without burning a hole in your pocket. The cost of a customised creation will depend on :

  • Size.
  • Flavours and toppings.
  • Intricacy of design and embellishments.

  • Style.
  • Pricing structure.
  • Personality.
