    I had a pretty inexpensively cake and mine was still $3.25 a slice, and I think even The Cake Guys are above $3.00. Maybe one of the other ladies has a better suggestion...good luck...

    I think that Tabitha Ballard was $2/slice in 2009... I'm not sure if the prices went up or not

    I used a culinary student for my wedding cake and was pleased. She charges based on the number of tiers. I think I paid around $350 for a cake for 150 people for a 4 tier...check out her website!

    If I'm remembering correctly, she was $2.75-3.50/slice when we met with her about a year ago depending on how fancypants you wanted to get with your cakes.

    Tabitha Ballard is $2/slice for buttercream and $3 per slice for fondant when I emailed her a couple months ago.

    I think Panini was more than $3 when I checked with them. I used Ruth Robbins and loved her cake, but she was 3.50 a slice.

    You might be able to talk somebody into doing it for $3 if you just have a simple buttercream with no design on it and a simple filling, then your florist or you could add flowers to it.

    Also, check local bakeries. Maybe AJs, I've had their birthday cakes which are delicious, but have never had a fancy cake from them. http://www.ajbakery.info/?pid=4

    I ended up going with the lady at my venue, but I had called Central Market... $3.25-$4.25 per slice ($1.99 for cupcakes, if you'd consider that route) plus $45 delivery fee. Mabye check into some other larger grocery store chains?

    Have you tried Artsy Cakes in Fort Worth?

    Texas Star Bakery in Hurst makes great cakes and they are VERY affordable. They have done two of my friends weddings and I'm using them next month!

    I just found a great cake lady and she fits my budget! Her cake genuinely tasted the best out of the ones I tried and she's only charging $300 to do a Wedding cake, Groom's cake, and the cute lil tux strawberries for 75 people....
