Would you pay this much for a cake?

Okay, many of you I'm sure has seen Ace of Cakes on Food Network and those are a group of really talented people. Now, call me crazy, but I had this crazy idea that for my DD's 16th b-day (this May), I would check in to having Duff make her a cake (Duff is her utmost favorite F N celeb). Her dream car is a yellow Saturn Sky convertible, so I thought maybe Duff & his buds could do one up. Well, I went on his website and the MINIMUM price for a cake is $1,000! They go up depending on the complexity, etc. Plus, $175 per hour for their delivery of the cake. I mean, those cakes are awesome, but I don't think I'll be getting a cake from Duff for DD's 16th! Besides, I'd be afraid to cut and eat it!

Would you put out that kind of money?

  • The cakes they do are very creative and labor intensive. I didn't know what his charge was but it didn't shock me. Would I do it for a 16 yr I say to my kids "Is stupid tatooed on my forehead?

  • Throw a Saturn on a home cake! No way would I ever spend more than $20 on a cake...don't care who made it. I'm so cheap! lol I hope my kids never find out other parents do crazy stuff like that!

  • Yes I would. The older I get the more I find I like really nice things. If you can do it I see no problem with it, but is is not everyone's thing.
