It's just another cake. It's cute, but not spectacular. What flavor was it?

exactly what I think - cute. What in the world makes it a $5,000 cake?

For 5K, it's nicely done but pretty boring.

They should have hired SharonZ. icon_biggrin.gif

I think for $5000 it was too expensive, but very sweet for a two year oldicon_smile.gif

The size and price is over the top, but the design is very nice and simple for a toddler's birthday cake!

I think it's cute, but for $5k, the butterflies could have been done much better!

Honestly, at that price I was expecting something wildly amazing that I might feel I might not be able to make myself. Then the picture loaded and i was like "That's it?!!!!!!!!" Money to waste. ITs a good cake, but nothing spectacular. Nothing that says even $1,000 really!

Are the butterflies made of real gold??? $5000 is way over the top for that cake.

The $5000 also included 24 individual matching cakes for the guests, so it's not just for the one big tiered cake.

Pffft... I feel the same. 5K? Seriously? It only looks like 6, 8, 10, 12" rounds, covered in fondant... Wish I could charge that much for a cake like that. Must have had money inside the cake as a surprise...random $100 bills... icon_lol.gif

Please see a similar thread

(first post really says it all)

I belive from other articles I have read that the $5000 was for the main cake, 24 8" cake 'favors', and cupcakes!

For $5000 I think I can pull it off! Its cute though, and I think the butterflies are appropriate for a two year old.

5K?!?!?!?!?! That cake was nice but I have seen so much great work on here that I guess I am jaded and expected something more for 5K.

I sure would have done it for less than 5K. Way overpriced!

The butterflies look like the pre-made ones from Deco-Pac.

Actually, just doing some quick math...this *could* make sense.

If that is a 4, 6, 8, 10 cake, serving, say, 80 wedding size pieces, and guessing @$9.00 a serving, that's $720.00. Add $230 for the cupcakes. And 24 guests, if they each took home an 8" individualized cake with 24 servings at about $7.00/serving each, for $4032 in guest cakes...that's

720 + 230+ 4032 = $4982.00

Zowie. Not unreasonable, just very, very generous...if that's how it worked.




It wasnt just a 4 tiered cake! The bulk of the cost came from the 24 cakes they had done as FAVORS for guests to take home. Just the cakes would be 656 servings (thats without those cupcakes)

looks simply...not enough colors for a two year old.

Why does a two-year old need lots of different colors?

icon_smile.gif I was shocked when I saw Suri's birthday cake. I think for the money they paid for it it should have looked a lot nicer. It was very plain for a 2 year olds birthday.
