7 tips that will help you create an affordable delicious wedding cake and dessert table

As I was searching for budget friendly tips for your wedding I found some creative ways to save money on your wedding cake and dessert without compromising on quality of your wedding cake and dessert.

So here are 7 money-saving tips that will help you create a beautiful and delicious wedding cake and dessert spread, without breaking the bank...

1. DIY Wedding Cake:

One of the best ways to save money on your wedding cake is by considering a DIY approach. If you or someone you know is a skilled baker, why not take on the
challenge of making your own wedding cake? Not only will it save you money, but it will also add a personal touch to your special day. You can find plenty of easy-to-follow recipes and tutorials online to guide you through the process.
Remember, practice makes perfect, so start experimenting well in advance!


2. Opt for a Small Cake:

Who says a wedding cake needs to be towering and extravagant? If you're having a smaller wedding, consider opting for a smaller cake. A two-tier or even a single-tier cake can still make a stunning centerpiece, while saving you money on ingredients and labor costs. Plus, it's a great way to have a more intimate and cozy feel to your celebration.

3. Choose Buttercream over

While fondant may create a smooth and polished look, it can also be quite expensive. Opting for buttercream frosting instead can save you a significant amount of money. Buttercream is not only budget-friendly but also deliciously creamy and versatile. With the right decorations and piping techniques, you can achieve a beautiful and elegant cake that will impress your guests.


4. Incorporate Fresh Flowers:

Fresh flowers can instantly elevate the look of any cake or dessert table. Instead of splurging on intricate sugar flowers or decorations, consider using fresh flowers as a cost-effective alternative. Coordinate with your florist to select flowers that match your wedding theme or colors. Just ensure that the flowers are non-toxic and pesticide-free before using them as cake decorations.

5. Dessert Alternatives:

Who says a wedding cake is the only option? Offering a variety of desserts can be a more budget-friendly and crowd-pleasing alternative. Consider setting up a dessert buffet with an assortment of mini cupcakes, cookies, brownies, or even a donut wall. These options are often more cost-effective than a traditional wedding cake and allow your guests to sample a variety of sweet treats.

6. Shop Around for Bakers:

It's essential to do your research and shop around for the right baker. Don't settle for the first option you come across. Reach out to multiple bakers, compare prices, and ask for samples. Many professional bakers offer tasting sessions, which can help you determine the quality of their work and find the best value for your money.

7. Rent a Display Cake:

If you have your heart set on a grand and elaborate cake but want to save some money, consider renting a display cake. These are dummy cakes made of foam or other non-edible materials, decorated to look like real cakes. You can have a small portion of the display cake made with real cake for the ceremonial cutting, while the rest can be served from a sheet cake hidden in the kitchen. This way, you can have the best of both worlds - a stunning cake display without the hefty price tag.


Planning a wedding on a budget doesn't mean you have to compromise on the taste or appearance of your wedding cake and desserts. By implementing these money-saving tips, you can create a beautiful and delicious spread that will leave your guests impressed and your wallet happy. Remember, it's your special day, and with a little creativity and smart planning, you can have the wedding cake and dessert you love.
