Weddings are never cheap, so we don’t blame you for wanting to save some money where you can. Labour contributes significantly to the cost of a wedding cake, particularly when there are tricky elements which take a lot of time. With these hot tips, you can save money on your wedding cake and still get an impressive result.

Dummy Tiers
Looking to add a bit of height and wow factor to your wedding cake, but worried about the cost? We’re letting you in on a secret – not every layer of your cake needs to be edible! Dummy tiers are made from styrofoam, and can be iced the same as the cake layers. You’ve probably seen these in the display windows of local bakeries and wondered how on earth the cakes can last so long. The great thing about dummy tiers is that they are cheap, effective and enable you to create a grand looking wedding cake on a budget. Your guests will be none the wiser – so consider dummy tiers as an option to save money on your wedding cake.

Small cutting cake with a slab cake in the kitchen
This is an excellent and very popular way to save money on your wedding cake. Rather than spend big money on a large multi-tiered wedding cake, you can have a small cutting cake on display and a simple slab cake in the kitchen. A few guests will be served by the cutting cake, whilst the caterers will prepare the slab cake for remaining guests. Both cakes will be the same flavour and quality – so no one misses out, it simply means extra cash for the honeymoon!

Get creative & decorate it yourself
Elaborate decoration can take a lot of time and the bill can add up fast. If you want to save some money on your wedding cake, you could consider ordering a plain iced cake and decorating it yourself. YouTube and Pinterest are full of inspiration for DIY cake decoration, but you can also use your own creative flair.
You could also have your florist decorate the cake with simple fresh or silk flowers. These are much cheaper than iced or sugar flowers and give your cake a refined natural charm.

Cake Toppers
Cake toppers are cheap, readily available, and are the perfect finishing touch. There is a cake topper to suit everyone, and eBay has thousands of options starting from just $1 each. You could go for the classic bride and groom cake topper, or opt for something like the “Just Married” cake topper. Why not order a bunch and see which ones you like best?
If you’re a little bit crafty, you could even make your own. There are many tutorials available online, and your guests are sure to be impressed.

The cake will mark the end of the occasion and leave a lasting impression, so choose one to remember.  Casa Del can prepare a dazzling two tier wedding cake that will knock your socks off. Sit back, relax and let us do the work.

The two tier wedding cake is a popular choice for many couples. These cakes are elegant and refined, and are best suited to intimate gatherings. Some of the main benefits of a two tier wedding cake is that you can have two different flavoured cakes; or incorporate some very interesting ingredients and creative elements. This allows you to cater to the taste preferences of your guests and express your personality within the cake. A simple two tier wedding cake also tends to look more aesthetically balanced, are easier to cut and serve, and can be dressed with beautiful floral arrangements to provide some natural charm.

Choose Casa Del for the best wedding cakes Sydney has to offer! Your wedding day is a significant milestone that will become a treasured memory. The cake is often considered to be the pièce de résistance of any wedding, but choosing one is not alw ays an easy task. You want it to be something unique, beautifully designed and great tasting.  To make your decision a little easier, we have identified a few of the top wedding cake trends for 2017.

Vintage Wedding Cakes Sydney

Casa Del offers a wide range of wedding cakes from traditional through to contemporary. In 2017, we are noticing strong trend towards vintage wedding cakes and rustic styles that hark back to the golden age. Traditional cakes often feature elaborate piping and lace work resulting in a cake that looks almost too good to eat!

If you want something a little more contemporary, yet still retaining some old-world charm, then consider opting for naked wedding cakes. These cakes have an unrefined finish to them that your guests are sure to appreciate. They are normally made with buttercream frosting rather than fondant, meaning that in addition to their beautiful rustic appearance, they also taste a little less sweet. We can dress your cake with beautiful silk or iced flowers, or ask your florist to top it with fresh flowers at the venue to truly make it your own.

Cupcake wedding cake towers are proving to be another popular choice in 2017. They make for a dazzling sight when presented on a tiered display. With various cupcake flavours, icing and toppings available, you can customise to your own personal preferences. Cupcakes also provide an easy option when you have many guests, as they do not require cutting or cutlery.
