Commenting on how couples can have their own showstopper without the hefty price tag, bespoke cake consultant for Jack and Beyond, Sophie Zimmer, offers the following tips:

  • The taller the cake, the higher the price. Having double tiers or many layers will bring up the cost.
  • If you are worried that a smaller cake might not feed all your guests, you can get around this by ordering some additional cutting cakes of the same flavour. You can even go for individual cakes only and get a beautiful cake stand to display them. 
  • Frosted or half naked tiers are often more moderately priced than the equivalent covered in sugar paste or marzipan. Frosting can also easily be textured to play with the effect. 
  • Keep it simple; the more handmade, decorative elements you add to the cake, the more it will cost. 
  • You can create very elegant looking cakes with relatively simple elements. Fresh flowers for example, even just a few, always look great and can be matched to your table decorations or theme for the wedding. 
  • Look for a cake maker or bakery that offers a wedding cake consultation service. A good cake maker will be able to design a cake with you that matches your budget, looks great and is unique to you and your wedding. Feel free to bring in colour samples or ideas for inspiration, but be realistic, not everything you can find on the internet actually works on a real cake.
