A suggestion for a truly unique and inexpensive wedding cake:
Order a good  plain cake from a reputable bakery, order some unsprayed  edible flowers  from your wedding bouquet florists, get your sister team to place the flowers on cake. You will save at least 50% and A very personalized cake. The cake may cost $200 and $30-45 for fresh flowers( EXOTIC ORCHIDS COSTS MORE)
Wedding cake is all about labour cost, I used to do cakes that I charge $1000 and up for labour

I got mine from Saint Germain, but I'm not totally satisified as they change the type and color of flowers from the picture shown to me. Many ppl found the cake very nice looking but not as I expected.

because the lady said... we can choose which colour roses we want.
did your cake hv more than one type of flower?

My wedding is in Aug this yr...and I still haven't buy the cake yet lol~
I heard that if you buy the bakery cards together & you can get some disounts on the cake. no quite sure... my bf said will go to Kam Mo fong this weekend and ask for prices..
We went to St. Germain last week..and their price is expensive...><

Oh does Saint Germain jack up the price so much? Or you have large number of guests...
My wedding cake was $400 (or bit below) enough for 26 tables...I think price is ok...
And I love my cake..

Have you tried Anna's cake house?

小叻 : for saint germain.. the lady that we know said she can only get discount on the bakery cards and not the cake. but i'm not sure about the other bakeries...

fibbi: i think the price depends on the style that you want... i did see some $399-450ish cakes too

Has anyone tried to DIY the wedding cake? I know it sounds crazy, but after looking at this blog, I really wanna try it!!  I'm surprised that the ingredients of a wedding cake are pretty cheap, so you're just paying most of your money on the skill and labor.  
I know it's not easy to make a perfect cake, but pratice makes perfect!
And you'll SAVE A LOT!
It looks fun to make the cake too!
