Yellow and Blue Wedding Cake: Money Saving Tips

It is so easy to buy into the latest and greatest cake trends in choosing the design for our wedding cake.  It becomes too overwhelming.  Well the cake does not  have to be too ornate.  I always say, "less is more".  The simpler the better!  Here are some valuable money saving tips when ordering your wedding cake.


Themes are an excellent way to keep focus on your vision and as well as your budget.  In this cake the couple wanted the Filipino and the Canadian flag on the cake as well as their personal quote (" I found you).. They made it their own by adding these little touches while staying with their " lemon yellow and midnight blue theme.


An average wedding cake ranges from $300 to $450.  Bakers typically charge per serving from $4 per serving to $8 per serving.  Costs per slice depends on design complexity, color, flavor, and icing types.

American buttercream cakes are generally cheaper than their fondant counter part.  Buttercream cakes are  $4 and up per serving while fondant cakes are $6 and up per serving.. 

Order additional cupcakes for the rest of the guest to enjoy.  Rent a cake stand similar to the one below to display both the cake and the cupcakes.  Some bakers have cake stands available for rent.


Provide you own cake topper.  If your cake decorator did not have to spend time looking for a cake topper or creating a cake topper for you they will charge you less.  
Also fresh flowers are more cost effective than handmade fondant flowers.  Have your florists to make you a small arrangement for your cake.  Ask your florist if you can workout a flower package that includes your cake flowers.

All I am saying is you do not have to splurge in order to have an awesome cake.  For me, my priority is to have the most delicious cake at my wedding.  So when I got married I went to my favourite bakery and I got them to make me an all white 4 tier buttercream mocha chiffon cake, decorated with swags and roses.  Nothing fancy but it was soo delicious!

Minion Cupcake Cake

This is how I made my Ube (purple yam) Minion cupcake..  Enjoy! Come see how I made it in this youtube video.  Don't forget to subscribe for more updates! Used Wilton tip 1M to create the rose pattern on the cupcake.  Start pipping from middle cupcake and out. To create the eyes...  You will need 3 different sizes of round cookie cutter (3", 2.5, 1 inches, white fondant, grey fondant (goggle frame), light brown fondant (iris), and black fondant, large ball tool, and piping gel.  Cut out a 3" circle out of grey and white fondant.  Set aside in large ziplock bag.  Cut out a 2.5" circle in the middle of the grey circle.  This will be the frames for the minions goggles. With a small brush apply a small amount of water along the perimeter of the white circle.  Lay down the grey frames on top of the white circle.  Using a ball tool (See pic bellow) make an indent on the bottom centre of the white circle.  Place the brown 1" circle in the di

Easy Soccer Ball cake

This soccer ball cake is easy to make.  To create the soccer ball shape I used a approximately 8" Stainless steel bowl, and an 8" round cake pan. You may use glass bowl but you have to reduce cooking time.    This is how I assembled my soccer cake. The naked cake... As you can see there are 3 layers to this cake.  The bottom layer is 8" round cake.  The top layers are just one bowl shaped cake that I split into two sections.   I stack the layers first to see how they fit together.  I noticed that the middle layer overhangs a bit on the 8" round cake.  I trimmed off the excess cake using a sharp carving knife.   Each layer is filled with chocolate buttercream. Chocolate crumb coat...  This part can be omitted since we are applying the buttercream with an icing tip.  I crumb coated chocolate for added flavor because having just the white vanilla icing is too boring.   Do not worr
