Why are custom cakes so expensive?
Custom cakes are just that, custom-made cakes. From handmade intricate sugar flowers to the cake itself that is all homemade from scratch, using organic unprocessed ingredients. Wedding cake designs are digitally sketched for clients, as well as for larger all occasion cakes. Costs of all natural ingredients used at PKs, are higher in price than pre-made ingredients purchased in bulk. Custom cakes have the “personal” touch, with regular communication with wedding client, photos of flowers in the process, digital sketch with revision, as well as decoration color matching, attention to detail, and excellent homemade cake taste. As a custom cake decorator out of my home, I design and create each cake individually myself which takes many hours for larger cakes, and moderate hours for smaller ones.
Each cake (except for the 6“), “includes” a certain number of sugar flowers for the price stated, (or equivalent decoration). I hope you will give a PKs Custom Cakes a try, you can see and taste the difference. I know you won’t be disappointed! PKs has many very satisfied clients. I work with all budgets and can usually work out a design and price to meet client’s needs for a custom cake! However, custom cakes by their very nature cannot accommodate minimal pricing.
