Will it save money to have a small display cake with side cakes that go directly to the kitchen for serving?

No, our basic cakes and sides cakes are essentially the same price.  We make the size of your wedding cake appropriate for the amount of servings you need. However, when clients want the height of a bigger cake, but don’t feel the need for all the servings, a Styrofoam dummy tier can be utilized and are priced at $4/slice, based on the number of servings the tier would have.

Fondant vs buttercream?

Fondant: The product we use is not traditional fondant. Our sugar dough is a mix of white chocolate and rolled sugar that is applied to the cake in a thin layer and molded over a buttercream coated cake. Its taste is sweet and texture a bit chewy.  Its finish is matte, and the edges are rounded. Buttercream: We use either an American buttercream or Italian meringue buttercream depending on the cake design, fillings selected or client’s preference.
