Best Affordable Place To Get A Wedding Cake?

elliek | Mar 5, 2012 11:50 AM

I'm planning my wedding in Boston, but since I don't live there, I don't know too much about the vendors in the area. I'm looking for a bakery to make my wedding cake, and I'm kind of stuck, as every place I've been recommended seem to have mixed reviews. I'm also on a pretty tight budget, so that's not helping either - I'm expecting 200 guests, and my cake budget is $500.

Someone I know got a cake from Russos and said it was good and affordable, but when I called them, they said they charge $3.50 - $4.50 per slice - which is pretty much the same price as many bakeries (not inside grocery stores) charge. I then called Konditor Meister, which one of my friends used. They seemed ok, charged around the same price, but then some reviews I read online for them were horrible - apparently their cake tastes like sawdust? My friend seemed to really like them though. Does anyone have any suggestions on some places where I can get a cake for under $500 for 200 people that actually tastes good?
