Article boost

Seven Myths About Wedding Cakes, found here on CakeFu, an excellent article by Amelia Carbine about the often misguided "money-saving tricks" people are sometimes advised to employ when purchasing a wedding cake.

Go check out the article for full details on why not to: buy a fake tiered cake; assume buttercream is cheaper than fondant; choose real over sugarpaste flowers; hide your budget from the cake decorator; assume wedding cakes are always the most expensive; try to save money via a less experienced decorator.

The last point is particularly important; the pitfalls of trying to save money by getting unexperienced decorators or friends of the family to make your wedding cake is illustrated week-round by Cake Wrecks.
