Wedding Cake --for less than $7/pp

Looking for great tasting wedding cake --Sweet Lady Jane's is $7/pp. Seems steep for $250 people.

Any suggestions in LA??

Thanks

  1. For sure check out Layers in Sherman Oaks. They made my wedding cake, and people are still talking about it.

    1. We tasted at about a dozen bakeries in that price range. Susina stood out as far and away the best and that's who we went with. Cheaper still if you go non-traditional with non-stacked layers. They don't do the more traditional fondant or buttercream type decorated cakes, but are beautiful nonetheless. We went with the Berry Blossom.

      1. Have you thought about wedding cupcakes? We did this for our wedding last October and they were a hit. We got ours from Frosted Cupcakery in Long Beach which is not in LA but I'm sure there are cupcake places closer to the LA area. Ours were about $4/piece and we ordered 4 different flavors. I think cupcakes tend to be cheaper than wedding cake. Good luck!

          What about mini cheesecakes? I love chunkomunko cheesecakes (www.chunkomunko.com). They're very delicious and pretty cheap. They also have lots and lots of flavors. I've ordered them many times this past summer for baby showers and office parties. I believe they do weddings too. They're at the Thursday Westwood Farmer's Market at the Vets Garden if you want to check them out.

        2. Helena Wirth Cakes, on Burbank Boulevard in Van Nuys. No, it doesn't have "star power" but the cake was delicious. Also, Porto's does wedding cakes reasonably cheaply.

          1. We got ours from Rosebud Cakes in Beverly Hills, and it was both beautiful and delicious. Porto's was our second choice; the cake tasted quite good, but the designs weren't quite what we were looking for. They were also more expensive than Rosebud. I think Susina (or maybe it was SLJ...can't remember which) didn't have delivery available, and that was a deal breaker for us.
