It’s every couples dream to have the perfect wedding day. The dress, the floral arrangements, the wine list, the cake…
But that dream, of course, comes with a budget. Chances are, if your big day is approaching, you have looked into cost cutting measures.
Today, we are going to bust one of those cost cutting myths for you; the big Styrofoam lie! Many couples who dream of a large tiered cake believe that it will be cheaper if they use foam. Unfortunately, that is far from true.
Let us break it down for you. Let’s say you have 350 guests attending your wedding, and you decide to go with a 7 tier cake.
The Real Cake Option
The Foam Option
Sure, there is a time saving of approximately 40 minutes for the foam option, however the cost savings in time are quickly absorbed by the cost of materials—primarily the cost of extra foam and fondant.
In summary, the foam option will often cost the couple more than going for the real deal.
