How much for a simple cake?
Wedding and Celebrations Cakes are priced according to the amount of labour required to design, bake, order special items and finally ice and decorate them, so it is best to browse our site for ideas and pricing. In most cases there is a minimum serving size for the purpose of making the cake more affordable. Generally if a cake is made smaller than the minimum it can sometimes double in price due to the extra labour required to work on a smaller canvas.
