So I've been talking to a few bakeries about my wedding cake. I've gotten price quotes ranging from $600-$1200-1300. I really don't want to spend too much money on cake when nobody really eats the stuff. From all the weddings I've attended it seems as if no one touches it (or is left mostly half eaten) and is mostly a prop for pictures. What is a fair price for a cake? The design I want is fairly simple, and I'm tempted to have a baker make one small tier for my FI and me to cut into and have the rest of the cake be made of foam covered in fondant. I could just serve sheet cake to the guests, and no one would be the wiser (or so I hope). Does that seem horrible and tacky? Suggestions would be much appreciated.
