  • We planned for 150 I think (it's been a few years and my mom dealt with the majority of it), a friend made our small 2-tier cake that we displayed on the head table & cut. We ordered sheet cakes from the bakery for our guests - a sheet cake costs around $35 and feeds I know for sure we paid under $200 - and it was really good cake!

  • Our cake was 2 tier and we got it at the local bakery and it was $100. We brought our own topper that we purchased at Michael's craft store.

  • Nothing! My Aunt made it. It was her present to us. It was beautiful.

  • For 226 guests I paid about 300.00 ( 2 tier and four surrounding cakes) I had two cakes left and ate on at 6 months - still good and the other at a year. Not so good.

  • Less than $50 for a cake that served 125. I only had to pay for the cake mixes & other ingredients. I made it myself since I have taken cake decorating classes and have years of experience.
