Cut Costs for Your Brisbane Wedding Cake

You can expect that your cost for a wedding cake in Brisbane will start around $3.00 per slice on traditional cakes. Depending on how many guests you are expecting (the average wedding is usually 200 guests), cost for the wedding cake will be about $600 to $1,000.


There are ways that you can cut your Brisbane wedding cake costs. While many Brisbane wedding cakes are works of art in their own right, the cake itself is part of the ritual feeding that the bride and groom do during the wedding reception. The cake is then cut and served to the guests as a ritual sharing of the couple’s future bounty. But to save costs on wedding cakes can provide couples with more options in their wedding planning especially if they are not in love with the idea of the awe inspiring work of art. Here are some suggestions:

  • Order a smaller cake for the art and have a similar cake made sheet style for serving to the guests
  • Create mini wedding cakes cupcake style, you can even create a unique tower of wedding cupcakes that can be quite exquisite
  • Order a smaller cake for the wedding party and offer a dessert bar with pastries and more so guests have other options than the wedding cake

Do-It-Yourself Brisbane Wedding Cakes

If you or someone you know is considering making your wedding cake, there are a few things you need to know about making wedding cakes. Here is a guide to help you plan making your own wedding cake:

  • Use a recipe specifically for wedding cake in order to make the cake sturdy enough
  • Be sure you have the tools you need including the decorating bag for frosting and cake stands
  • Have an image in mind of what you are trying to create
  • Pick up parchment paper to line the cake pans
  • Pick up different sized cake pans to handle the cake tiers
  • Fresh flowers for decorating and frosting

You will need plenty of space in your kitchen to set up the wedding cake as you put it together; you also need a tall and wide space in your fridge to store it. If you’ve never ever made a large elaborate cake before, spend some time experimenting and practicing before hand. Your friends and family will enjoy eating the wedding cake experiments.


The Tradition of Cutting the Wedding Cake


The traditional cutting of the wedding cake is a beautiful moment in every wedding reception. This tradition can date back as far as The Roman Empire although it was a much different tradition than we know today. It is through the years that the traditional cutting of the wedding cake in Brisbane has changed and evolved into what we know today.

During medieval times, every guest brought a small cake to the wedding. The cakes were then stacked upon each other. If the bride and groom could kiss over the top of the stack of cakes, it was considered good luck. This was the very first recognized version of the wedding cake.

In earlier times, it was the sole responsibility of the bride to cut the wedding cake. She would serve the groom’s family and then the rest of her guests. This was meant to delineate the role change from serving her own family to serving that of her husband. Eventually, this tradition changed into what we know today as the traditional cutting of the wedding cake.

The wedding cake is a symbol in itself. In previous times, the wedding cake was frosted with white icing as a symbol of purity. Just as the bride wears a white wedding gown to symbolize her own purity, the white wedding cake acts in the same manner. It was once known as the “bride’s cake” and the groom had a separate cake. Some couples still opt to have a groom’s cake.

The traditional cutting of the wedding cake as we know it today has originated from all of these older traditions. The modern couple cuts the cake together. Technically, the bride cuts the cake with the help of the groom. Then, they feed the first piece to one another. This symbolizes their willingness to provide for each other throughout their marriage. Couples are also taking great liberty with their wedding cake colours and designs. There is no reason to stick solely to a white wedding cake.

Everyone looks forward to the traditional cutting of the wedding cake. It is a beautiful tradition that guests share with the happy couple. In addition, wedding cakes are often quite delicious and who doesn’t love a good cake!
