Designer Wedding Cakes
Your chance to be totally unique!
Designer wedding cakes are definitely NOT a cheap option but they CAN be great value for money, especially
if you are having a small wedding.
My cake was one area I DID spend quite a bit of money on.
I wanted a unique wedding cake, I didn't have
a clue how to make one myself and I had less than 50 guests to feed so I knew it wasn't going to cost an
Why consider unique wedding cakes?
Quality and taste.
An original hand made cake will be far superior in taste to any factory produced one.
Remember that your scrumptious wedding cake can substitute for a dessert so you want it to taste good, right!
Why not make your cake the focus of your reception party?
Who needs expensive accessories and flowers on tables when all eyes will be on the "dessert"
of your dreams?
You may have an original theme where only a cake made to order will do.
I wanted a mountain cake to celebrate our engagement at the top of Kilimanjaro. It took pride of place
at our celebration party!
It's a great one off way to indulge your sweet tooth!
Unique Wedding Cakes - Get the Best Value
Always visit the patisserie store before ordering for a tasting.
Fillings vary from expensive and heavy fruit to light sponges, chocolate, lemon or toffee, all laden
with alcohol if required of course...just to add more to the bottom line!
Don't forget you can vary the fillings if you are having a tiered cake. A good way to lower the cost a little.
Fancy fondant decorations will add to the cost so don't get carried away and don't be afraid to ask
your cake supplier to simplify the design to lower the price. Any time saved on cake decorating will cut down
on labor costs!
Check the delivery costs. Most specialist wedding cake suppliers will only deliver within a small radius
as shipping a hand made wedding cake is simply not practical. You can save money by "carefully" collecting it yourself.
Love this beautiful designer cake!
