Because wedding cake prices are largely based upon the labor involved in cake decorating when you buy a wedding cake, you can save money by having the baker or designer create a truly beautiful single-tier cake that you can put on display at the reception, then cut and serve a standard slab cake which is much more affordable.

The slab cake can be in any flavor you like, complete with yummy frosting and even a filling if you desire. In other words, still a lovely cake!  But because you won’t be paying for the labor to intricately decorate a cake sized to feed all your guests, you’ll stretch your budget without sacrificing style!

There is no rule that says a wedding cake must be multiple layers or tiers, nor that it must stand tall or be large in size.
