The Q: I am on a pretty tight budget and I just can’t see myself spending all this money on a fondant cake…. I don’t even like fondant. That said, I love a lot of the detail on fondant cakes….. Any ideas on how I can have a pretty cake, without breaking the bank?
The A: While rolled fondant wedding cakes can get to prices between $10 and $20 per slice, there are some awesome ways that you can upgrade your cake with just a little TLC and a small investment. One of the cutest and cheapest ways to upgrade your cake is with a cake stand. Spend some time on Ebay or Feather Your Nest, and pick out an awesome cake stand that reflects your decor. These are via Chow.com and I pulled out two of my favorites.
Another great way to personalize any plain buttercream cake is with a ribbon adornment. It’s a simple thing to do that will add color and pattern to a very simple cake is with a ribbon trim! This cake is sweet and simple with a little bow.
Do any of you have some cute, but simple ideas to spruce up a great cake?
