I've been on the hunt for an affordable, yummy cake in Lancaster for the last three months. I have my heart set on a four tier cake (white and strawberry on alternating tiers) with buttercream icing and simple decorations (sugar crystals and ribbon on two tiers). I have received shocking quotes for this cake - upwards of $1,100 for what I thought would be a simple cake that I could get for around $500. When I did find a cake in my budget, the cake samples were not very good - even my FI's 10 year old who will eat anything didn't like a lot of the cake we tried. Finally, on Friday, I met with Krista at Kakes by Krista, and not only were her cakes and icings delicious, but her prices were unbeatable. She is located in Lititz.
Just wanted to share another option with brides around the area who may be having the same difficulty I was. She doesn't do many, if any, bridal shows, but does have an ad in the local bridal magazine that's free at convenience stores.
