Cut Down The Tiers
The more tiers, the more cake you need to make. Thankfully, opting for one or two layers can still provide you and your guests with all the cake you need without having to go over the top with all that extra cake. After all, who would want to see any of that delicious cake go to waste?
Use Your Flowers
Many love flowers to decorate their wedding cakes. You’ve probably organized bouquets for the bridesmaids and the bride, but what do you do with them once the ceremony is over? Use them as a cake decoration, of course! It can be the ultimate two in one way to save on the budget.
Sure, white wedding cakes were once all the rage, but there’s a new trend sweeping the world: naked wedding cakes. They can be perfect for rustic weddings as they add a more homemade touch to the ceremony. Plus, you’ll save a ton of money not paying for that frosting.
If you still want to have the grand tiered cake without the extra cost, then it could be time to invest in some foam instead. Adding in layers made from foam can be an ideal way to add the illusion of extra layers without having to pay for the excess cake. Just be sure you don’t accidentally serve it up to your guests.
Many of us love putting our own spin on weddings. Rather than having one great big cake, what about smaller cupcakes instead? Yes, they can still be just as glamorous, baked in advance, and all made at home without the worry of transporting a grand tower to the venue. The best bit? You’ll typically get a lot more for your money.
Weddings don’t have to cost a fortune – especially not when you learn how to make your own wedding cake on a tiny budget. A few alternatives here and there could soon save hundreds of dollars in the long run!
