I'm starting a new regular post for Kiss My Tulle called 5 for 5. On the 5th day of every month (-ish, depending on when it falls), I'll be sharing a downloadable infographic with my Top Five Budget Tips for a specific facet of wedding planning. Today, I'm tackling the wedding cake:
Top 5 Budget Tips: Wedding Cake
- Instead of one large, tiered cake, use one small cake (to cut) and serve cupcakes, pie, cake pops, or doughnuts.
- Dress up a plain tiered cake from the local supermarket or bakery with fresh flowers, ribbon, rhinestones, sprinkles, powered suger, or a killer cake topper for a chic look at a fraction of the traditional cost.
- Opt for buttercream over a fondant. It’s cheaper (less labor-intensive) and tastes WAY better.
- If you are serving a simple, non-teired cake then skip paying for delivery and set-up. Have a friend to do it instead. Most bakeries are cool with this.
- Bake a cake from a box and used canned frosting. Some even prefer the taste and they are simple to bake, layer, and frost.
Hope this helps y'all plan your perfect, butget-friendly wedding cake!
