I'm on a tight budget, and our wedding will be tiny with only 40 guests. There will also be a lot of travel involved. These are my cake options:
1. Pony up about $200 for a catered, professional cake....more than we should spend....do you think this is too much for feeding 40?
2.. Have one couple's cake made by me and a cupcake tree, also made by me, and haul it the four-hour drive to the wedding location;
3. Bake a two-tiered little wedding cake myself, decorate it with silk flowers, and haul it on the long drive
It's so much easier to pay someone else to do it without the worry, but $5 pp just for cake seems awfully steep compared to our budget.
