How much does a wedding cake cost?

Having a wedding cake at your reception is one of the biggest (and sweetest!) traditions. But what does a wedding cake cost? While wedding cake prices do vary depending on the size and style of your cake, the average cost of a wedding cake in the U.S. is around $500 with most couples spending between $300 to $700. While this may sound like a lot for a dessert, you’d be surprised as to how much work goes into creating a gorgeous wedding cake.

  • $ 105 or less Lower range
  • $ 500 Average cost
  • $ 300 - $ 700 Most couples spend between
  • $ 1,000 or more Upper range

Costs displayed are based on spend from thousands of couples who recently reported pricing for this service within their WeddingWire review. Pricing varies based on factors including, but not limited to, vendor’s experience, level of expertise, event guest count, date, and geographic region.

Which factors impact wedding cake prices?

Not surprisingly, the bigger and more elaborate a wedding cake is, the higher the cost of a wedding cake will be. A wedding cake featuring lots of design elements, including sugar flowers, fondant details, many tiers, and unique shapes, will cost more than a simpler cake with classic buttercream icing, a few fresh flowers, and fewer tiers. While your flavor choice likely won’t have an impact on your wedding cake’s price, requesting certain custom flavors may raise your wedding cake cost a bit.

What is the starting price of a wedding cake?

The starting price of a wedding cake can vary depending on the type of frosting you prefer. Cakes covered in fondant, a sugary paste-like icing, tend to cost more than cakes covered in buttercream (frosting made from butter and sugar). Fondant is more durable than buttercream (and it won’t melt in the summertime!), but it’s generally thought of as less tasty. The starting price of a fondant wedding cake is usually about $5 per slice, while the starting price of a buttercream wedding cake is about $4 per slice. Again, these wedding cake prices will vary even more based on decorations, size, etc.

What’s included in the cost of a wedding cake?

This varies from cake baker to cake baker. Usually, the cost of your wedding cake will include the cake itself, a design consultation where your baker will create a custom design just for your wedding, caketasting, delivery and set up. Some cake bakers will also include supplies like cake stands, cake toppers, and cutting utensils, though you may have to provide these on your own. And some wedding cake prices include an extra top tier of your wedding cake or anniversary cake for you and your spouse to enjoy on your first anniversary.

What types of desserts do wedding cake bakers offer?

About 54 percent of couples choose to serve an additional wedding dessert, aside from or in addition to wedding cake, at their receptions. Cake bakers may offer a variety of these alternative wedding desserts, including cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, pies, pastries, doughnuts, and more—the starting price for cupcakes is about $3 per cupcake. There are also groom’s cakes, which are a tradition particularly in the South. We’ve seen these groom’s cakes shaped like everything from sports paraphernalia to burritos!

When should I hire a wedding cake baker?

We recommend hiring a wedding cake baker at least six months before your wedding day—these vendors do tend to book up quickly! Start by reading online reviews of wedding cake bakers near you, and selecting a few to interview (in person whenever possible). You’ll typically have a wedding cake tasting after you’ve booked your baker, where you’ll select your cake’s flavors.

What Type of Wedding Cake Is Right For You?

We all know that a celebration simply isn't complete without cake. Of all of the time-honored wedding traditions, eating wedding cake is one of our favorites. Whether this is because of the endless variety of breathtaking decorations, the symbolic gesture of a new couple sharing this treasured sweetness with their loved ones, or because 90 percent of all couples swear they are not going to smear it all over their new spouse (and yet 75 percent of them still do!), or some combination of all these things – wedding cakes are one of the finest, most dazzling, yummiest type of dessert ever!

Now, we know what you're thinking – when can we sample some wedding cake? Keep in mind you should start looking for inspiration around six months before your wedding and plan cake tasting appointments at least three months before the Big Day. It's important to take into account your wedding theme and color palette when choosing the shape, style and size of your wedding cake.

Wedding Cake Info You Need to Know

If you're not familiar with the difference between buttercream and fondant, check out our Ultimate Wedding Cake Glossary. You can also get inspiration from our Cakes & Desserts articles. When you've finished some basic research, join the conversation on our wedding forums with other engaged couples and newlyweds to get more ideas or hear first-hand what did and did not work on their wedding days.

When you've narrowed your options down to two or three professional wedding cake bakeries, it's time to set tasting appointments. When you schedule, don’t forget to ask whether there is a tasting session fee, so this doesn’t catch you off-guard during your appointment.

Questions to Ask Your Wedding Baker

When the day of the tasting(s) arrives, here are a few suggestions for what to discuss with your baker to make sure they’re able to create your dream wedding cake. First of all, ask to see photos of past creations. This should give you a good idea of their creative talents. Then, try tasting a variety of different flavors. Often, you can arrange to have each layer be a different type of cake. You can even inquire as to whether they offer vegan, gluten-free or dairy-free flavors. This is important for guests with food restrictions or allergies. You’ll also want to find out if they coordinate with wedding venues and wedding florists for cake delivery and set-up – this will save you some trouble if they can connect directly with each other.

If you and your fiancé(e) aren't fans of wedding cake, that's fine, too. You can always opt to go with a smaller cake and/or offer alternative dessert options. Don’t forget to ask your baker about suggestions for other sugary possibilities. If you’re not sure what to do, take a quiz to find what other wedding desserts you should serve at your wedding.

Before making any final selections, be sure to determine your wedding cake budget. Depending on your preferences, you may choose to splurge on the cake itself and save money on elaborate cake decorations, or vice versa. The helpful WeddingWire budget planner can guide you in making these tough financial decisions. You’ll be able to dig in and enjoy your wedding cake on your Big Day – on-budget and guilt-free!
