Get Cheap Wedding Cakes Without Hassle

The wedding reception eats up about 50% of the ENTIRE budget. But, just like with other aspects of the reception, there is no reason you can't save a little cash on the wedding cake. With the right mentality and a bit of clever planning, you can easily find a plethora of cheap wedding cakes to choose from.

Clever Ways to Acquire Cheap Wedding Cakes

1.) One of the first places to look for a cheap wedding cake should be bakeries and specialty wedding shops. Sometimes these places have excellent discounts, so you should definitely check a few of them out.

While there, if you find the perfect cake well within your budget (doubtful), then get it and save yourself any more hassle. On the other hand, if the cake is a little pricier than you would like, then move onto the less expensive avenues.

2.) Check out the bakery department of grocery stores if you're looking for cheap wedding cakes. It may seem highly unlikely, but some department store bakeries produce incredibly delicious, beautifully decorated cakes. The best part about these cakes is that they are dirt cheap, thereby saving you loads of money for the budget!

3.) Do some digging and try to find at-home specialty cake makers. Such individuals often charge far less than professionals and they really put their whole heart into making the cake; usually resulting in a much better tasting cake. Believe it or not, this is probably the easiest way of finding cheap wedding cakes you can afford.

4.) An extremely cheap, nearly free, method is to get a friend or family member, one whom is a great baker, to bake the wedding cake for you. Tell them you'd be "honored" if they would bake your wedding cake as a gift to you and your husband (or wife). Plus, with a little help from an online wedding cake guide, you could even decorate the cake yourself -- Talk about huge savings!

5.) Another inexpensive solution to your wedding cake problem would be to make the cake yourself. Rather than paying DOLLARS per slice as you would with a professional bakery, you'd wind up only spending PENNIES! If that's not a great way to get cheap wedding cakes, what is?

There are plenty of online step-by-step guides for creating wedding cakes, so you know you wouldn't be left in the dark. Simply use one of the online guides and you could start creating a cheap wedding cake as early as tomorrow! Even if it took you 3 or 4 tries to get the cake just perfect, that still would be FAR less expensive than buying it from a private bakery.

As you can clearly see, it's not all that difficult to locate cheap wedding cakes. As long as you put in a little effort, you can easily find a cheap wedding cake that has both flair and style!
