Tip of the Day: Get a grand wedding cake for less! "If you want a big, show-stopping masterpiece but you have a smaller guest count, consider foam tiers.

For example, let's say that you're having 100 guests (which equates to a four-tier cake), but you want a six-tier design for looks. If you ordered the two additional foam tiers instead of real cake at my shop, you would save $700 and not have all of that extra food lying around," says celebrity pastry chef Kaysie Lackey from The People’s Cake.
