I highly recommend (unless you are going for the full monty white wedding cake look), that you don't use the word "wedding" when you get the quote. It seems to be a licence to print money ? Kidd's Cakes on Cranford St have a very long standing reputation, and what about Syenham Bakery on Colombo St ? :-)

Just another thought ... what about contacting (or popping into) Ta Dah Icing Specialists (Church Corner, right next to Grower's Direct), and asking them to put you in touch with somebody who does it from home ? This would definitely be a more cost effective option (I would think ? ). :-)

With not knowing who you got that quote from, i will suggest the people who did our wedding cakes. Sweet Kitchen. The cakes were divine and the decorations on it were the best! I'll try and find a pic so you can see them for yourself.

odd ! ! ! ! what was the quote for? ? ? how many tiers etc. Make your own. So very easy. There are a lot of people very willing and able to ice your cake, and would jump at the chance to get there work "out there'. . Advertise for a cake icier in your local paper, ask for photo's. . What sort of cake were you looking at, Heavy fruit, choc mud, cup cakes. ,

We just had a beautiful 21st key shaped cake by Kid's Cakes Cranford Street Christchurch, it was excellent. The fruit cake was delicious and moist. the icing was superbly done. They have an area in the shop that has displays of cakes including wedding cakes. I can recommend!

Hi blou, Adrienne at Cakes Galore in Papanui makes amazing cakes. She made my 21st birthday cake from a detailed drawing I gave her, she was great and very affordable. Unless your cake is super intricate and extravagant it shouldn't definitely not cost that much. I decorate cakes myself however I am quite busy at present, do get in contact with Adrienne.

Please don't use Sydneham bakery their food is simply awful. go to sweet temptations their cakes are amazing, they are in sydenham and barrington. i too would avoid the word wedding, i can also say that their dutch apple cake is to die for.
