The Frosting on the Cake
Simple isn’t always cheaper, but in the case of the wedding cake it is.
Maybe you already have your heart set on an intricate design on your cake. If so, you will skip this tip, but if you want to save money, opt for a simple design, or put ribbon or flowers on your cake. Intricate designs are labor intensive, that is why they cost more.
Fancy fillings and frostings will elevate the price of the cake, but there’s no reason you have to have it on all the tiers. Save those for your topper and use a less expensive, but still tasty, butter cream for the other tiers.
