Find out how to find a wedding cake on a tight budget

Cupcake wedding cake created by Vanilla Teas Helen Edwards from Vanilla Teas in Tyne and Wear shares her expert advice to help couples find the perfect wedding cake no matter their budget. She says, "With the current economic climate, budgets are going to be one of the top priorities with every part of life – not just planning a wedding. But, how can you save some pennies on your wedding cake, without cutting corners?

"If you want a large cake, the first option is to opt for a naked or a semi-naked cake rather than a traditional iced one. This way you’re knocking off not only the cost of the icing, but it’s quicker to make and time is money. However, if your numbers have dropped a little, or you’re not particularly after a traditional bake, a cupcake wedding cake makes a great alternative. Add in a top cutting tier if the budget stretches to it. This option allows you to cater for the number of guests you have invited, and the cupcakes could even double up as your wedding favours if you supplied them in some pretty little boxes for guests.

"Cupcake boxes are readily available at our favourite bargain shops, and by using a feature cake stand to display the cupcakes, you can create a truly stunning display. Here at Vanilla Teas, we offer free cake stand hire, saving you even more money!"
