Every cake is unique therefore a lot of factors come into play when it comes to quoting your design.
The price depends largely on the amount of detail and time that goes into creating your special design. Factors that come into consideration when quoting your cake are as follows:

- The number of cake portions required
- The detail of design in the cake
- Colour matching
- Ingredients and packaging
- Researching and purchasing of tools or stencils if required
- Number of tiers the cake has
For a rough indication:
- Basic buttercream finished cake price per head $5.50-$6
- Basic smooth fondant finished cake per head $7.50- $8
*Please note: this is a starting price indication, fresh floral, sugar flowers and intricate details are not included in the basic pricing.

The top tier is real, so you have the tradition of taking the top tier home while the remaining tiers are artificial for a flawless visual impact.
The exception is a naked cake, which relies on all the tiers being real to achieve the exposed sponge look.
A separate sheet cake is then cut to guarantee even wedding cake portions in size and shape for all the guests, which is hard to achieve when the wedding cake is traditionally tiered.
This process ensures there is no fuss for the caterer/venue and you. You can also keep your cake on display longer as it doesn’t need to be taken to the kitchen for cutting.
Can’t wait to do this! Let’s get Caked.
