Wedding Cake FAQs
Cutting your wedding cake is such a memorable moment at your reception and a gorgeous photo opportunity. To make the most of it, you’ll want to choose a wedding cake that matches your theme and tastes absolutely delicious.
Our expert wedding cake suppliers will not only be able to combine amazing flavours for the different tiers of your wedding cake, but they’ll also create a design that is unique to you as a couple.
Whether you’d like to incorporate your pets or personal hobbies into your wedding cake design, opt for a traditional fruit cake or create a completely unique and modern design, the expert wedding cake designers featured in this section should be able to cater for your every need.
How Much Does an Average Wedding Cake Cost?
Wedding cake prices vary drastically, so be sure to set aside a portion of your budget for your wedding cake from the beginning. The average couple spends £300 on their wedding cake, but it’s common for couples to spend much more on a wow-factor cake. For a custom-designed wedding cake with several tiers and intricate details like fondant flowers and hand piping, you can expect to pay over £1,000.
What Factors Affect the Cost of a Wedding Cake?
The size, intricacy of the design and type of ingredients are the biggest factors in your wedding cake cost. Naked wedding cakes require much less work than fondant iced cakes, and a sponge with Champagne and fresh raspberries will be more expensive than a simple vanilla sponge. Additionally, you may need to pay extra for your cake supplier to deliver the cake to the venue.
What Size Wedding Cake Do We Need?
A simple, three tier, buttercream wedding cake will serve around 100 guests and cost about £400. If you’re having a smaller wedding of up to 30 guests, you probably only need a single tier wedding cake, while you need five to six layers to feed a wedding with more than 150 guests.
Your wedding cake maker may be able to save you money by creating a smaller cake as your wedding centrepiece and a few sheet cakes that are cut in the kitchen to make sure everyone has a slice.
What Can We Have Instead of a Wedding Cake?
Wedding planning couples don’t necessarily want a traditional tiered wedding cake, but luckily the choice is endless when it comes to alternatives. Choose from a selection of wedding cupcakes to wedding cake pops to a macaron tower and so much more.
Arrange to meet your wedding cake supplier to discuss your exact requirements and don’t be afraid to choose a wedding cake that is out of the ordinary!
