Photo below was my wedding cake. We didn't ask for a big one though, since we were only a total of at least 30 people! I'm sure next you would have in mind is, are they real shells Madz? NO! They were all hardened icing, molded and shaped with different shell types. Clever huh!Beach wedding cakes can be anything you want them to be! At the end of the day, it's your day. You can have whatever you want to have, make the most of every resources you've got in terms of ideas. Be creative and adventurous, make yours as distinctive than the rest.
How many guests are you planning to have? If you have your beach wedding cakes made professionally it can range in price anywhere from $2.00 to $15.00 per slice. A "slice" is normally considered to be 2 ounces or, approximately 4" x 2". The range in price will depend on how much intricate detail you want on it. If the cake you choose is very labor intensive, you can expect higher prices. If you are on a tight budget, keep it simple!
Beach wedding cakes can be any size, shape or description. Be creative. If you have an idea for your cake, sketch it out on paper and take it to that talented friend, relative or your chosen bakery. If you can imagine it, someone can make it!Do not limit your thinking to a two or three tier cake. It can be round, square, a sheet cake, a sculpted cake, individual mini cakes, cupcakes or even cookies! Some brides even choose a one or two layer, individual wedding cake on each guest table rather than the traditional large cake at the head table. This is a nice idea because it also serves as the table centerpiece. This eliminates the added expense associated with having a wedding centerpiece at each table! A couple of things to keep in mind though...
