Once you get this price, you can go up from there.
Fillings will add a small fee for each slice as will curly-cue flowers and fancy handcrafted fruits, ribbons or bows.
If you go a step further and add pillars with a waterfall, there will also be rental charges tacked on to the wedding cake costs.
Ask about the delivery charge for your cake, but try to negotiate it into the existing price.
Be sure to ask the baker what happens if there is a cake tragedy on the day of your wedding.
Unforeseen problems can occur so ensure they have a backup plan.
When you meet with the baker who will create your wedding cake, determine the size of the cake first and narrow down your list of flavors, fillings and icing.
If you want different flavors on each layer, find out if the baker is willing to do this.
