It seems many couples planning their wedding are on a tight budget. I am always keeping my eyes open….looking for ways they can save money.
A cake can be very costly. But there are several ideas I have seen, not only from my customers, but searching around on Pinterest. You will see the top photo….the tower was made by the father of one of my brides. I thought this was a unique idea and have seen many variations of this idea on Pinterest!
You can have a small cake for the top so you can cut the top and take photos. The bottom can be filled not only with cupcakes, but you can use a variety of items such as brownies, petite fours, cookies, etc. that will go with your color scheme. You can choose individual desserts and put them in cupcake paper or small plastic cups, using your color scheme and place them on the tower. Extras can be kept on hand to replace as the guests eat the delicious items on your tower.
Are you a baker? Are there family members who make special candies or items they would be willing to bake for you? You would be surprised how many would love to make these items for you….a cost saver and they get to brag! Be sure to send them a thank you note for their help!
Your guests will love this idea because of the variety and easy access!
Keep in mind, some of my clients just don’t like cake at all! So leave the cake out at the top and instead put the bride and grooms special sweet item…these can be shared for the photo taking! Remember….it’s your special day…do what makes you happy.
