    Am I just out of the loop or what? (maybe since I'm the Mother of the Bride). Just got a quote for the cake and I almost fainted. It's very nice, but jeez! If it's not too personal, how much are your cakes going for? If that's the going rate, I guess I'll just suck it up. Here's a sample of what my daughter wants.

      Your pic didn't show up but I think we paid $250 for our cake. It was for $40 people.

      This was ours:

        I was quoted $450 for a cake for 40 people so that sounds about right.

          That's insane!!! He highest I've seen is $9.00 per slice and this was from a very high end place. UNless the cake is a masterpiece I would try somewhere else. Yikes!

            I paid $167.00 for my cake for 30 people. That included delivery and setup. Mine was very simple.

              Geez that's a whole lotta money, seems SUPER inflated to me!!! I'd say seek other quotes, otherwise that $12.50 per slice better have a $10 bill baked into every slice.

              I'm getting married in the Riviera Maya area and am being charged $4/slice or $3/per cupcake ~ being the cake fein/aficiando (and yes my big ass thighs show it, tee hee) at first I was gonna complain a bit cuz I'm so used to getting great cake prices here in So Cal, but now I think I'll keep my mouth shut now and accept it as being pretty damn reasonable considering

                my cake was included in the $340 package that covered everything. it wasnt the fanciest cake, but it tasted good.

                i would never consider $12.50 per slice.

                    Wow, that's expensive.
                    I don't even LIKE cake, I wouldn't pay that.

                    But then again, like the poster above me, mine is included.

                    wow... at $12.50 a slice, it better be covered in gold leaves/flakes.

                    i would NEVER consider paying that much per slice! there has to be something cheaper than that in LV. while $3-5 is the standard average in mexico, i'm not sure what it is in the states right now. but i guarantee you it is less than $12.50!
