Keep it Simple
Keep the cost down with a one-tiered wedding cake, but prop the sweet masterpiece on a classy cake stand. Check out the Christensen’s custom wooden cake stand below for a DIY option (or try searching through Etsy for various cake stands).
Three or Four-Tiered Wedding Cakes
Tiered cakes make a statement, plus feed your whole crew! But if you’re looking for a budget-friendly dessert option, some caterers let you rent a tiered cake that they will add frosting and decor to, so it looks like the real thing, and you get the wow-factor you want. They will then cut up sheet cake for guests to actually eat. This way you can offer different flavors or just achieve the look of a beautiful cake table without the cost!
If at least your top tier is real cake, one tradition is to save and freeze the top tier to enjoy again at your 1-year wedding anniversary. This sounds wonderful but to achieve it, you want to make sure you have the freezer space for this and you have a frost-free freezer.
Cake Decor Details to Know
- For a money-saving option, opt for buttercream icing instead of fondant. And commission a simple cake, as intricate designs will set you back financially.
- No matter the icing you choose, the white color almost never varies, so don’t try to match the shade to your off-white gown. A no-fail pick is pearlized white which emits a slight luster.
