Sweet Confections Cakes wants to be at your wedding reception!
Our wedding cakes are priced based on number of servings required, design complexity and the time invested in its creation. The more detailed and elaborate your wedding cake, the more time it takes to create, the more it will cost. The final price is determined by multiplying the price per serving by the number of servings you require. Don't be fooled by those who charge a lower starting price, as you will find most bakeries pricing is fairly close. If there is a huge difference in starting price, you are most likely paying an upcharge for things as simple as tinting the icing a color, changing the cake flavor on a tier or decorations in which we include in the cost of the cake OR for work that is not the quality you would expect to receive. So it is best to narrow down which bakeries you like and meet with no more than 2.
Current Wedding Cake Pricing:
Simple yet Elegant Wedding Cakes start at $4.50 per serving. To figure cost, multiple the required number of servings by the cost per serving. Of course Fondant covered cakes are extra. If you are a bride on a tight budget you'll want to plan early, keep you event within a reasonable amount of attendees and be sure to keep things on the simple side. Remember the more details you incorporate, the more work it becomes and the cost will certainly reflect the time and energy but into creating your design.
Buttercream decorated cake for 100 guest
100 servings x $4.50 cost per serving = $450.00
Fondant Covered wedding cakes are $2.00 additional per serving (starting price would be $6.50) . When your wedding cake is covered in fondant, it will still have it's normal helping of buttercream under the fondant. This is so that if you have guests that does not like fondant, they can gently peel the fondant back and enjoy our delicious buttercream.
From Wilton... Wedding Cake Cutting Guide
This guide shows how to cut round wedding tiers into pieces approximately 1 in. x 2 in. by two layers high (about 4 in.). Even if a larger serving size is desired, the order of cutting is still the same. The first step in cutting is to remove the top tier, and then begin the cutting with the 2nd tier followed by the 3rd, 4th and so on. The top tier is usually saved for the first anniversary, so it is not calculated into the serving amount.
Move in two inches from the tiers outer edge; cut a circle and then slice 1 in. pieces within the circle. Now move in another 2 in., cut another circle, slice 1 in. pieces and so on until the tier is completely cut. The center core of each tier and the small top tier can be cut into 3rds, 4ths, and 6ths, depending on size.
Dessert Bars start at $7.95 per guest. The dessert bar allows for 3 servings per guest. NOT three (3) of each item, but three items total. On the dessert bar/table you can offer your guests an array of sweet treats and dessert items that will appeal to everyone in attendance.
If Sweet Confections Cakes is supplying display stands, trays, or table decorations/scaping additional fees will incur. In addition, there is a set-up fee and delivery fee. Dessert bars can be absolutely beautiful, but very time consuming to make it look beautiful and stunning.
