Ask Amanda – Cakes

Question: Do you think paying so much money for a wedding cake is worth it? – Kim

Answer: Wedding cakes are expensive for one reason, they take a long time to make and decorate. So if you don’t want to spend a lot of time making the cake yourself, then yes they are worth it. But if you are willing to be a little bit creative and invest the time…you can make your own cake, it’s a wonderful way to save money!

Learn how to make this beautiful cake on Project Wedding.

Or if you want a more traditional cake, you can always buy the basic cake and then add the decorations yourself like these cute cake toppers.

Love the advice Amanda! And as you know, big advocate for homemade right here 🙂

Don’t want to badmouth anyone but that Etsy site is where I bought my toppers from that didn’t arrive for the wedding. And I still haven’t got my money back after sending the birds back – just sayin…
