Saving Money on your Wedding Cake

Many couples are working with limited budgets, but want the “wow” factor without the price tag.  When selecting your cake, there are several things to keep in mind; first, the cake can be used as a focal point and part of your decor and does double duty.  Second, if you want to have an over the top look, you can ask your baker to make a “dummy cake.”  That is, a cake that is a bottom layer of cake and fondant over styrofoam.  You get the look of a dramatic cake, but only have one layer.  What about your guests?  After you cut the cake, the servers take the cake away, and use sheet cakes (much less expensive!) and serve your guests.  You have the look without the expense!  Good Luck!
