A Small Wedding Cake to Save Money

Weekly Wedding Tip
brought to you by
"Have your cake. and save money too, by ordering a smaller cake for display and for you to cut the first slice. Then supplement that with less ornately decorated sheet cakes of the same flavor and icing, to be cut and served from the kitchen."

I've noticed that having smaller wedding cakes at receptions has become a growing trend for brides who want to cut down on some of their expenses. An added benefit of having the sheet cake is that the slices can be pre-cut and ready to serve as soon as the cutting cake is removed from display. No need for your guests to wait while the display cake is cut.

Another cost saving option is to serve a dessert bar to your guests and offer coffee and tea along with several small wedding cakes and maybe some cupcakes instead of a larger cake or purchasing a sheet cake.

Do you plan to have a smaller wedding cake and then serve your guests slices from a sheet cake?
