We had a two tier square marbled mudcake (white and chocolate) with whip icing and icing roses/tulips and it was $195. The cake was absolutely delicious.

We are paying $450 (delivered to our reception venue) for 3 tiers, probably choc/white choc swirl mudcake, decorated with sugar paste cherry blossoms. I think this is a real bargain as I was quoted about $2000 from a place in Sydney before I found this local lady.

Hi, ive been talking to a couple of bakers (both small and large businesses) and ive found that the smaller ones (like at cafe/bakerys will do it cheaper than the bigger ones IYKWIM. For my cake: 3 layers, desert size servings: frosting is italian buttercream and flavors in rich mud dark chocolate and white chocolate with raspberry coulie and edible strings of cascading pearls down the side (where the flowers are in the pic) the quotes have been between $980 and heaps cheaper for $220!

Quite pleased.

$850 for 3 tiers to feed approx 300 peps, served as finger sizes. I think it'll be cheaper if we went with the reception drinks package to include the cake.

Our 2 tier square cake (coffee slice, 80-90 serves on bottom tier) was $210.
The bottom tier was lemon mud cake (very delish!) the top fruit cake (which we have kept)

I am happy to give you our cake lady details, if you would like to PM me!

I was quoted from $250 to $1000 for the same cake, I had so many dramas. My advice is to shop around. That's a lot of money for something that gets eaten! In the end I had so many problems that mum decided to make it herself for me, she's such a trooper. Doing it herself we guess it has cost around the $150 mark for a two tier fruit cake. This includes buying all the icing needed, the cake tins, the silver boards to put them on, the boxes to store them in. All fresh ingredients (NOT PACKET MIX!! like i have been told by some cake makers that they use! I was horrified!). That's the other thing, try the cake out and make sure it tastes good... you don't want to pay all that money without even trying a sample of the cake and turn around and find it is horrible tasting on the day.

$720, this is to feed 60 people, dessert size servings. (But I have a feeling there will be lots left over- which is fine, as the family can take some home!) It is white chocolate, brown chocolate and marble mud on each layer. It's from Marks Quality Cakes in Williamstown. We got samples and the cake was awesome. Marks Quality Cakes Supplies to a number of cafes and things. I think it is worth it to spend alot on the things that get eaten, as every guest gets to enjoy it! People remember things like that at weddings I think. My mum wants only the best for our guests.

I know this is no help whatsover for the OP but I just got a whole lot more grateful!

Three tiers (two mud, one fruit)... FREE. Well, not completely free. I will buy my grandmother something to say thankyou, hehe.
