Hello: I know some bakers do not charge for the top tier of a wedding cake. Does this also apply for a groom's cake? Thanks!

Whether or not you charge for the top tier is a matter of choice. If you can't afford to do it, then don't! And I've never heard of doing it for groom's cakes, but again....if it fits your business strategy, go for it. If not....then no.

Does not apply to groom's cakes.

For me does not apply to bride's cake either. icon_biggrin.gif

I've never seen a tiered grooms cake. Normally they're carved or just a chocolate sheet-style.

I've done plenty of tiered groom's cakes -- sometimes as many tiers as the bride's cake.

Here's one:

And that's a quarter sheet on a half sheet and I'd never give that away.

Yeah, I've seen those. I know they are tiered, but I guess I don't consider that a tier in my head. I'd only give away a small "for 2" cake as an anniversary. If they have a "bride's" free tier, I definitely wouldn't give a groom's with it.
