Hi

I'm trying to organise a wedding in Toowoomba from SA (I love the internet!) but i'm having trouble finding out about cake-makers in Toowoomba - can anyone tell me where I can go? Also, i have no idea how much to budget for a wedding cake. We're thinking we might just have a small cake for the cutting, and then have larger slabs to cut and serve (having the wedding cake as dessert). Does this work out cheaper? How much have others spent on a reasonably simply decorated mud cake for around 100 people?

Thanks!

Hi Miss B,
I got married in Toowoomba one month ago, and when pricing wedding cakes for what I wanted (2 tier mudcake, no flowers or ribbon etc, small slices for approx. 70 people, very simple), was quoted between $500 -$600+ dollars. For something so simple we couldn't really justify the price so ended up having lamingtons :0) We ordered 60 lamingtons for $80 from a local bakery, piked them up the day before, used 30 of them to make a pyramid shape, put ribbon on, a cake topper, and flower scatters; and then had the other 30 out the back in the reception place's kitchen, which were cut up on the night. So all up it cost us just over $100 and everyone thought it was a fantastic idea. They ended up cutting each lamington into 3 pieces, so at the recovery brunch the next day we gave away half a down lamingtons to each family that attended.
Hope that makes sense. PM me if you would like a pic, will be happy to show you. Actually I'm rather chuffed that ours ended up so well, as it could have turned out cheap and tacky, but we thought it looked brilliant!

Best of luck with your wedding smile.gif

PS - There's a thread on here with some other ladies lamington cakes, which is where I got our insipration from

Hi I'm getting married in Toowoomba and have started looking into cake places - yes I agree, very hard to find!! There are a few places that I've gotten quotes for and have been pretty reasonable in my opinion. For a three tiered cake (that will cater for 80-120 people) prices I've been told have been from the $300 to $500 range. We're meeting up with one place next weekend who have quoted under $400 and we're pretty sure we'll go with them. Great service so far over-the-phone and they use a reputable company to make the cakes and they decorate them - so we know it will taste good. Feel free to PM me if you would like more details. I'll probably have a bit more information too after we actually meet these people next weekend!

Hi Wookie

I'm currently organising a wedding in Toowoomba. Although prices have probably gone up since you organised your cakes, can you please let me know where you ended up getting that cheapest quote? Cakes are definately looking expensive, so want the most cost efficient option.

Thanks!

Miss Fee, I've sent you a PM with the details, but here is a photo of the finished product. We paid $480. The bottom tier was chocolate mud cake and the top two caramel mud.

Hey there Miss B - i have PMed you with the details of my cake maker. She's incredible and i believe she travels as far out as toowomba (i'm a brissie girl)
i am have a 3 tiered mad hatters/topsy turvy cake which she has quoted me at $650... pricey i know, however i have offset this by serving the cake as our dessert course which has lowered our per head price at the reception from $115 to $105 per person - easily covering the cost of the cake.

Good Luck!

I got married in Toowoomba in 2009 and we had a three tier mud cake (2 white choc and 1 dark choc) Everyone LOVED the cake, and we too had it as our dessert.

If you are still after some recommendations feel free to PM me and I can give you the details.

One of the most central parts of the wedding is the wedding cake. It is the center of attention in the corridor, and everyone loves to "ooh and ahh" at it.
