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). The Flattery’s did just enough cake for the two of them, and had cupcakes for the other guests.
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.
