Ashley’s Bride Guide recently featured some sound advice from Crumb de la Crumb on “Easy Ways to Save On Your Nashville Cakes & Desserts!”
“The first thing is to be honest and upfront with your budget. If I know what your budget is, and I know we can’t meet it, I don’t want to waste your time. If a client doesn’t put a budget on our info form, we encourage them to do that so that we can know whether or not we can work with them up front.
If a client still wants to work with us but we can’t do exactly what they originally wanted, there are a couple of options we can offer:
~ We can make a simpler cake with fewer details and embellishments that will bring the cost down a bit.
~ Or, we can make a smaller cake that will feed up to 100 people.
~ If a couple is having more guests than that, they can get our smaller custom cake and then cupcakes or a kitchen cake (a basic sheet cake without design that is pre-cut in the kitchen). That will save about half on the remaining servings.”
