    I rang lots and lots of places around derby nottingham for cakes .. saying 'explaining im looking for a quote on a wedding cake blah blah blah @ some came back with like £350-£600 for a wedding cake i had enough.

    the last two i rang i said @ Im enquiring about a party cake very simple no decorations nothing just a basic sponge cake and one quoted me £130.. AMAZING i booked an appointment to to meet her on last sat she was a lovely lady. I told her that it was a wedding cake and for my own designs and her own hard work she bumped up the price by £20 so my cake cost me £150 i put down deposit well Jay did but that a another story to tell.


    My first bargain shame i had to lie to get it though :p

    If you only want a plain white iced sponge cake one of the best places to try is somewhere like Marks and Spencer or Waitrose. Most small cake decorators can't buy the ingredients for the prices that M&S sell their cakes for let alone buy, bake and decorate for that. ;)
