Tight, tight budget here. The cheapest person I found to do a cake was $500, not bad at all, but for my budget, I can do better. I have some friends who make cakes for fun and they are beautiful! But none of them want the responsibility of baking a wedding cake. (I don't see the big deal, all I want is a cake that looks like a birch tree.. just white buttercream with black scuffs) So I recently thought "well hey, it doesn't seem that difficult... I can do that" I bake cakes for fun myself, and I'm sure I'm capable... its just the timeline I'm scared of. If I'm getting married on August 15th, my plan was to bake cakes on the 13th, freeze them, decorate it on the 14th, and then wedding on the 15th... Is this even doable? I've never been to a wedding in my life, and everyone around me has had very informal weddings so I don't know what the days leading up to a wedding entails... Has anyone else ever baked their own cake or is planning on it?
