Wedding Cakes

Does anyone have recommendations of a reasonably priced bakery for your wedding cake?  We may use Publix, but I thought I'd look into other options, since they won't even place flowers on cakes that are designed to have flowers.

Thanks!

    I was going to try Eileen Carter, but she was booked for my date.

    We'll probably go with Publix.  I am pretty sure my florist wants to place the flowers himself, so maybe if you choose Publix, it won't be an issue?

    I forgot to mention, my first wedding, I used Special Cakes by Sara, and she delivered all the way to Conyers from Rome for a really low price.  She made the wedding cake in Sweet Home Alabama.  It was delicious, and I definitely recommend her.  She did place the flowers herself.  Her website is www.specialcakesbysara.com

    Good luck!

    Eileen Carter= FAIL in my book. I know 2 brides who did not get what they wanted/ selected (the design was wrong). And apparently her attitude about the situation was like, oh-well-to-late-now-cant-be-fixed. No refund, no discount, nothing. I don't have any other recs, wanted to pass that along.

    I wonder if Prince William and Kate are registered at Target?

    I am using Eileen Carter for my cake.  She has been great so far. We were at her house planing and tasting cake for over 2 hours.  She is doing a dots and damask cake for me.  Her pricing is $3.50 per serving and grooms cake start out at $125.  I would give her a shot and see what you think of her.  I have seen no negative reviews on wedding wire or any other review site on her.

    If you are near Rome check out My Tiers of Joy. The owner is Collette Moseley and she is amazing. her cakes are delicious and she offers free delivery and set up. I am getting both the wedding cake and grooms cake to feed 150 for under $450. I would definately look her up if you dont mind the drive to meet with her.

    I used Lisa Humphreys of Couture Cakes. Our cake turned out just as I had imagined it and it tasted great! She will also make you a fresh tier for your one year anniversary. Great price too!

    We're using Sugar Plum Visions in Marietta, they've been featured in the knot magazine and they were awesome to work with! We we're going to use Special Cakes by Sara, but that was a freaking disaster and I would not reccomend her at all. She was going to make us a mock tier and that was over 6 months ago and its never happened, and she also made the cakes for a friends wedding and they didnt look or taste good at all.

    I agree with my_matt, Eileen sucks and it is now my mission to tell everyone. She attempted to create a look that she saw on the cover of theknot and it was crooked and ugly. She was rude-my FI called it "forward" but it was just outright rude.
