    Hey girls!

    Well, I've been pretty okay with the crazy pricing for wedding/Cabo stuff...(AKA: $5 per sparkler...) BUT I'm just wondering about others' cake pricing.

    I received this quote for the cake I want:



    All covered in smooth White Buttercream, piped with wavy horizontal lines around each tier, and decorated with hand-made Rolled Fondant 'Ribbon' Roses of various sizes on each tier. Top decoration of metallic flower "picks" not included (these are not available in Cabo and were provided from the US by the bride).

    Top Tier: 6" Round (serves 12), cake & filling flavors TBA

    Bottom Tier: 8" Round (serves 24), cake & filling flavors TBA


    Total Servings = 36

    Price = $345 USD + $75 delivery

    Is that crazy, or am I crazy?

    K, just wondering. Thanks for the help in advance.

      That sounds high to me, but i don't really have anything to compare it to...

        This may be a little high but doesn't seem bad to me. There is a bit of detail there. Our cake (we're doing it in Akumal) is 3 teirs and feeds at least 45 with buttercream, little swirls all over, orchids, and lots of hand painted white chocolate shells and ours is $300.

          My cake was the same size as yours and it was about the same price...maybe a bit more...who are you hiring to make your cake? we hired sweet dreams for the cake and mini desserts and everything tasted amazing...well worth the expense, imo...

            I am being quoted $5 per person and told that a 3 tier cake is for 45 people so that is $225 plus $50 for delivery and hourly rate for the the design work. I asked if $100 would cover the design and she said more than. So I was looking at a 3 tier for $375 and she said it wouldn't be that much.

            I was also told by 2 cake places no fondant as it does not hold in the weather (not sure if this is for the whole cake or even for just flowers). Hope this helps...who did you go to?

            I was quoted by Sweet Dreams and Jennifer Hatton which my hotel told me were the 2 best in cabo.

              Hi, we are planning on using Sweet Dreams - we have only looked into individual cake prices, but think the price for your above cake sounds reasonable...if you break it down pp it isn't so bad. Now we know why so many people don't bother having a cake and just go for dessert!
