Cost Breakdown

Posted : in

Many different factors affect the price of your cake.
Here is what to know:


Cake and confection prices are generally broken down into per serving costs, with a greater number of servings leading to an increase in the price.


Cakes come in a variety of shapes that may impact the cost: hearts, scalloped ovals, squares, hexagons, diamonds, and more!


More traditional flavors like chocolate, white, yellow, vanilla, and almond poppyseed often cost less than the specialty liquor flavors.


Most fillings are included in the price of the cake, however specialty fillings such as cream cheese or ganache may cost extra, and the price of fresh fruit fillings may fluctuate seasonally.


Depending on the baker’s specialty, they may charge more for some frostings than others. Choices usually include buttercream, chocolate buttercream, cream cheese, whipped frosting, fondant, flavored fondant, and rolled chocolate.

Specialty Decorating

Bows, draping, blown sugar, pulled sugar, gumpaste flowers, and paintings are a beautiful way to add personalized designs to your cake and are typically priced per design.


Flowers, cake jewelry, figurines and fondant creations can coordinate with your theme and offer the ultimate in personalization.

Delivery & Setup

This is usually included if within a certain distance. Arranging flowers on the cake may or may not be a part of setup.


Additional rentals affect the price and typically require a security deposit.

Anniversary Tier

This may be included in the price. Sometimes bakers offer a fresh tier on your anniversary instead.
