Wow - sounds too good to be true!

I've been trying to figure the whole wedding cake thing out. I just want something simple with a white icing and my lovely mother is going to decorate (if required).

Can you please pass her details on to me???

Thanks!! smile.gif

Argh I totally agree cake are over priced like I suppose everything even loosely associated with 'weddings' are 50X more than normal, I mean why does photography cost $1000 even without studio editing or actual prints, if you just want someone to turn up on the day for 5 hours work and put the digital images on a CD?
Why does a simple bouquet of roses cost $200 when you can buy 30 roses from the flower markets for $25 and wind them up with florist tape and ribbon in 15 minutes.
Why does it cost $35 for a gorgeous gourmet cake from my favorite bakery in newtown that would feed 35, why not an extra $30 to put a smaller version on top and make it 2 tiered????

I'm a bake-a-holic and love cooking, I was going to do my own cake and did a few trial runs and seriously, the ingredients can cost a bit, as I was making chocolate mud w or genoise with 70% dark lindt chocolate.. but not that much.

It does take a bit of practice to get the fondant smooth and to drape it perfectly, but once you've 'got it' it seeing as most designs I see in their galleries are simple and classic - they wouldn't exactly take quite as long as they would have you believe. Maybe I can make fondant flowers and sugar clay figurines quickly.

Besides the fact that a cake for less than 50, i've been quoted 400 - 800 dollars and to have a simple 2 tiered 12 and 8 inch mud with white chocolate shards/cigarettes around the outside on top of a white ganache filling and icing with a few roses on top is outrageous.

And all of those places that charge $7.50 for EACH cupcake.. well gah they better be the best damn cupcakes you've ever had. Seriously it costs maybe $12 in ingredients to make 2 dozen cupcakes even with 00 cake flour, french butter and free range eggs and lindt chocolate or dutch cocoa or vanilla beans.

I am so close to starting my own cake business.. I think there is a massive space for someone that will make cakes that taste GOOD and can offer cheaper simple alternatives as well as the more detailed intricate creations.]I think someone needs to give those places a run for their money. No one should have to go without something else because their only option is an overpriced cake.

Besides none of them even offer the delicious chocolate or caramel mousseline (swiss meringue) buttercream filling I make myself, but everything is just ganache or fondant.

oops sorry I hijacked the thread with my crazy rant. I'm not cheap or stingy but I think it's crazy so many pay these prices because they think it's the only option!!

Your cake looks yum! And I like cakes that look like they will actually taste good as well as being pretty. Too many cakes look gorge but taste meh.

We bought a cake from publix and i was happy with it. guest still talking about it and cant wait til our first yr ann. to eat it again.Wedding cake design is constantly evolving and there are a number of trends to look at before making your final decision. you could consider serving your cake as the dessert at your reception. You could also order a very simple wedding cake and decorate it yourself with your wedding flowers or costume jewellery to match your outfit.
