The factors that can influence the cost of a wedding cake are the filling, decorations, icing, cake toppers and size.

1. The Filling

You no longer have to choose the fruit cake only. It is nice to have your wedding cake with filling. The filling you choose can determine the price of your wedding. You, therefore, need to pick the right filling for your wedding cake. Filled wedding cakes usually cost extra.

It is much easier to find different choices for icing these days. So, if your budget is small, you can find affordable choices for icing. It is, however, essential to hire an experienced professional cake artist to apply the icing. This is because the icing is delicate. The icing can make your dream wedding come to life.
