Ways To Make Your Wedding Cake Cheaper

Nov 28, 2007
The wedding cake is the focus of your wedding reception. However, you may realize that your wedding cake can be something very expensive. It seems to many couples that there is no way to make a cheaper wedding. In fact, this may not be the truth and there are some ways to achieve this goal. Below are some tips for you to make the cask less expensive.

You will certainly need to hire a baker to make the wedding cake for you. You will be unable to make the cake without the baker. As we all know, items will become more expensive when it goes with the word wedding. This is also true for your cake and baker. As a result, you can try not to hire a baker who claims to be specialized in wedding cake design.

A baker who does not claim himself / herself as a wedding cake baker can in fact perform as excellently. In order to make the price lower, you can try to approach a normal baker. We have to admit that there should be not much different between a cake and a wedding cake. The difference may be on the decorations but you may do it yourself if you like so that the price can be even lower.

If you have enough courage to do so, you may try to make the wedding cake yourself. Of course you cannot do it without any knowledge. You can attend to courses in cake make and bakery so that you can have the knowledge to make the cake. In fact your guests will really be amazed when they know that you are the baker who makes the wedding cake. You will also find the moment of cutting cake more memorable if it is a cake made by you.

You will also need to take some time and spend some money to decorate your wedding cake. If you are determined to save money on your wedding cake, you can use minimal decorations for your cake. In fact, minimalism can be something very interesting when it comes to wedding cake decoration. You can read books and magazines on cake decorations so that you can get more ideas on that. You may even ask your close friends and relatives to decorate the cake with you. This can also enhance the relationship among your friends, relatives and you.

When you are decorating the cake, you have to bear in mind that hygiene is always the first priority. Besides, you have to make sure what are the materials that can be eaten and what are not.

There will be pillars on most of the cake. However, it will be unwise to buy new pillars for yours. There is no doubt that the pillars will only be used once for your cake. As a result you will not be an environmental friendly action if you buy new pillars and throw them away after your reception. You may rent or borrow pillars from some wedding planning company. You may even ask if you can rent some from your local bakers.
