Cheap Wedding Cakes Don’t Have To Taste Bad

There is no way of getting past buying your wedding cake. There are a lot of things that can be subtracted from your wedding festivities, or be done much more cheaply. Most people scoff at the idea of cheap wedding cakes, but truly there is nothing wrong with saving a few dollars. Why someone sees the need to spend extra money on a wedding cake is the same sort of justification used for buying designer clothing–it’s all about the brands. There are a lot of ways you can take advantage of to find cheap wedding cakes for your big day. Lets take a look at a few of them today.

5 Tips to Find Inexpensive Wedding Cakes

1. Check your local area bakeries to see if they have any current offerings for specials or discounts for cheap wedding cakes. If they do, see what sort of options they have available and if you think they can give you a good deal or not. Don’t buy into the first deal that’s offered to you. Shop around, and see what other bakeries have to say; you might just get a surprise of a lifetime.

2. As an alternative to dealing with the store-front bakeries or cake stores in town, instead look around for people who specialize in baking wedding cakes, who work out of their home. These people can easily make you an equally impressive cake, often at half the price of the store bakers. Keep in mind also, that many home bakers are, or were professionals and work from home to supplement their income. Therefore, they know how to make cheap wedding cakes, and price them to attract your patronage.

3. Use the K.I.S.S. (keep it simple silly) principal in your cheap wedding cakes design. It need not be expensive to look fancy. Nor does a cheap cake have to look like something you just pulled out of the freezer. So many people attach dollar signs to value, when in actually, it all comes down to the details. Get rid of any fancy decorations that may cost an “arm and a leg” more, but not really add much to the look of the cake in the end result.

4. Next lets talk about the icing you’re going to use on the cake: Some people opt for fancy fondant and marzipan icings. I don’t know about you, but I rather like the taste and texture of a delicious butter cream. Why people obsess over something that really tastes much worse is beyond me. Some how these fancy icings became popular, and more traditional tasty icings found their way to the curb with many people. Instead of marzipan or fondant icing, go with the cheaper, yet still very tasty, butter cream icing. Cheap wedding cakes often taste way better.

5. Lastly, turn to a friend, or relative who has a talent for baking to get yourself cheap wedding cakes. Believe it or not, some people will not offer their skills unless you ask (ever met anyone like that?). You merely have to ask around, and you may find a friend, or a friend of a friend, etc. That is perfectly willing to make your life easier, and your wedding cheaper.
