Therefore the total weight we should count from the number of guests multiplied by the weight of single piece, i.e. from 150 to 180 grams. If the structure of the cake is light, 150 grams will be good estimate; if the structure of the cake is heavy, better to count as 180 grams per piece. Also the cake weight depends upon design chosen by you. If you want to have two-tier cake, total weight will be at least from 7 to 10 kilo, three-tier cake will be at least from 12 to 15 kilo.

2. What will influence on the price of cake? The average price for good wedding cake in Moscow confectioneries starts from 2500 rubles per kilo. In Europe the cost for one kilo will be 50€ and more. The price is influenced by the filling you will choose, total weight of cake and desing complexity. The bigger the cake, the less additional price is for complicated decoration.

3. What is the filling for the cake you should choose: the best decision is different fillings for different tiers. The guests will have the possibility to choose the filling according to their preferencies. For lower tier it is better to choose more heavy biscuit filling, for upper tiers – lightweight yogurt or berries fillings.
