Wedding cakes, an inspiration from Western culture, are now widely seen in our desi weddings. When you plan for a wedding cake there are countless options to choose from. But before you select your favorite wedding cake, make sure it fits in your budget as well. In our today’s article, we are going to help you with how can you pick your dream wedding cake within your budget.
Multi-tiered wedding cakes look fabulous, but they definitely cost you high. So, if you want to save money, keep few single tiered cakes on the dessert bar, or you can also ask your baker to make a sheet cake.
A simple and clean design is way better than those crazy shapes and edgy designs. Talk to your baker and let him or her know your budget and vision. The clearer you are about your budget and style the better it is, instead of ending up overspending on the wedding cake.
Sugar flowers are costly and it takes time to prepare them. You can either choose to pick the type of sugar flowers that neither take much time nor need details; another less costly option is to go for fresh flowers. They look equally elegant and beautiful.
Many couples buy elaborated cake stands; they look stylish and pretty but also cost more money. A trick to save your money on cake display is to decorate the surrounding of the cake with candles or cupcakes, flowers or centerpieces. Moreover, a bright colored textured linen also makes a great difference.
Another way to reduce the cost of your wedding cake is not to add icing to your cake. These are called ‘naked cakes’. Cake cream and garnishing are expensive; this is one of the practical ways to nail your dream wedding cake while remaining within the budget.
For those couples who still like to have icing on their wedding cakes, go for buttercream instead of fondant cakes. Buttercream is less expensive than fondant because fondant needs extra material and more steps to prepare than the buttercream cake.
Making a wedding cake is easy. It is just like a regular cake of different shape, size, and flavor with tiers. There are cake stands easily available in the market, if you don’t want to stack the cake.
