When you think about how the cost of a wedding cake is calculated, it’s easy to see why a semi naked cake will cost less than a fondant wedding cake. It uses less ingredients and takes less time.
When it comes to choosing your decorations, here are some of the options you might pick, from lowest to highest price: fresh fruit, naturally grown flowers, organically grown flowers, dried flowers, sugar flowers, homemade confectionery (like marshmallows, macarons, praline, nougat). As I’ve said a few times, the more options you choose, the higher the price will be.
To make it as helpful as possible, my starting prices for a few different sizes of cake are below. I’ve assumed that it will be delivered approximately 12 miles away from the Camberley area, with simple decoration (1 or 2 cheaper options). If that’s close to what you’re looking for, then the prices below will be pretty accurate. The more decoration you add on or the further away you would like me to deliver, the more the price will increase:
- 1 tier for up to 35 people starts from £200
- 2 tier for up to 70 people starts from £325
- 3 tier for up to 135 people starts from £450
- 4 tier for up to 200 people starts from £625
Looking at the semi naked cake sketches here, you can see a very simple design with just one element vs. a much more complicated design with 5-6 elements. For a 3 tier cake to serve 110 people (my most common size), delivered approx. 12 miles from Camberley (covering venues like Aviator, Pennyhill Park, Rivervale Barn, The Elvetham, Northbrook Park, Highfield Park and Millbridge Court), the more simple design would cost around £465 and the more complicated design would cost around £525.
There are of course times when a cake may be priced below those starting/indicative figures, and other times when the price may be higher than this. If you’d like to discuss a budget for your wedding cake, it’s always better to ask. I’ll be honest about what I can achieve for you.
