Mini Wedding Cakes

Can anyone recommend a bakery/pastry shop that can make 'reasonably' priced individual mini-wedding cakes? I've had a few quotes of about 13-15 dollars each and that is a bit too high for me considering I need anywhere from 300 to 350. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

  1. Sounds like you might want to go with specialty cupcakes. Kubo Radio on Queen Street East does quite fancy ones; there are cheaper places, too.

    1. I think what you're looking for is similar to a petite four. Try - they have individual mini-present box with bow for $3.5 each. They are not mini stack wedding cakes though!

      1. You can get tiered mini-cakes at It's the Icing on the Cake on Queen East, but I don't know the price. They may be small, but they're a tremendous amount of work for their size, hence the expense.

        1. Hi Joey - I am looking for the mini wedding cakes as well. What did you decide? Who did you decide to go with? Thanks in advance!

          1. Getting married in May and have opted for cupcakes, which I love and to keep the festivities a little fresh. Decided on the cupcake shoppe, Yonge and Egg. The buttermilk base is rich and yet light and absolutely delicious however I found the chocolate buttermilk ("James Brown") to be a bit over the top in richness and sweetness (never thought that would be possible). Certainly haven't sampled may flavours yet but adored the caramel topped buttermilk - quite the taste experience.

            Shoppe seems very responsive in terms of loaning a tiered tray for display and had scads of ideas for presentation. Prices were quite reasonable - e.g. can feed 90-100 for less than 250. Also had recommendations to mix it up in terms of standard size and mini so guests can enjoy more than one - great visual appeal - edible art!

            Cakes are an interesting sub-culture at social gatherings - keep us posted!
