"extra large: Diam 27.5cm; H5.5cm and cakeboard: 31.2cm. 66 portions"

How the hell do you get 66 portions out of this?? Not a chance!

...do-able if the cm were infact inches.

Wedding cake portions are notoriously tiny; 27.7 cm diam will give just under 595 square cm so divided by 66 is 9 square cm so that's a 3x3x5.5cm piece...looks spot on to me..but that's just maths

I agree...but that's how the advertising will allow it.....does not allow for the cutting skills :whistling:

For those on a REALLY tight budget, find a costco member and buy their (costcos, not the members) slab cakes - about £10 each and will (by the above scale) feed about 100!

Seriously though, theyre more birthday cakes, but if budget is really tight in these hard times, its a semi serious option.

Agreed, excellent price, just clarifying a detail, heated it myself.
Our cake was £35...and also sponge, but we did know a baker and it was ages ago.

What a deal!!
Out of all the things I bought for my wedding I hated buying the cake . . .£100 for some sponge cake. Thats eggs & flour mixed together . . .it's an absolute rip off getting married :thumbsup:

What a bargain! Shame my wedding isnt for another year or so!

its not hard to make a plain sponge and decorate it. Its just ready to roll icing, i have no skills but can do it. If you buy the ready roll icing from a cake decorating shop and you can loan a cake tin if you need a shape or large size...turn the finished cake upside down so flat and then cover in the ready to roll. It can be decorated with a ribbon if you have no skill at decorating or you can buy a decoration. The cake shops also stock the support stands and can advise.
If you are really unable to make one im sure a cake shop could put you onto a cake maker locally...my sister used to make them-they were stunning-but really at your wedding all eyes should be on the bride anyway:roll:

My wedding cake cost £200ish (back in the nineties!) and had MOULD in it :x, so we couldn't use it! Was well p*ssed off!

So I'd say this cake must be SUPERHOT!!
#20
Just had it for my wedding recently (see profile picture) - got the fruit, sponge and chocolate mix. Fruit bit was nice even though I'm not normally keen on fruit cakes. I've been told that the sponge and chocolate cakes were good - they obviously were because they had gone by the time I thought about having some!
#21
Good price, but its not "Traditional 3-Tier Wedding Sponge Cake (Ivory or White) - From Only £12.00 " as your title suggests, it's "single tier from £12", you don't get all 3 for that price.

Still, good value compared to other wedding cakes out there.
#22
I think M&S have made a bit of a BooBoo with the price here... They're advertising the three tiers for £12, when it should be each individual sponge layer. We had 3 Fruit M&S cakes for our wedding 2 years ago when it was buy two get one free. Lovely cakes!

Can't not vote hot for this.

this isnt cheap?????

you can buy these cakes from tesco, asda anywhere and much cheaper than that too, in fact you could get fruit for that price if you were goin to DIY your own cake.

You can make one using the Asda cakes for less than £50!!

cut n pasted from google search:

Tesco have a large, medium and small Rich Fruit Celebration Cake and the total cost for all three would be £28.81* – but I’ve only seen them on their website, it doesn’t say how big they are and I’ve never tasted them! (That’s quite a big disclaimer). They come on a silver foil cake board, ready to be decorated and they look alright.

Asda also do a wedding cake, similar to Tesco. Again, I’ve not tried it and the guide sizes look small, but it’s worth a try. It’s called ASDA Extra Special wedding cake and it comes in three sizes, totalling £27.94*

Choosing either of these will save you a fortune and you’d still have cash left over to try the cake before you buy it for the wedding. One thing I would say is, the cakes do look small, so think about getting a bit extra that you can cut on the day to make sure you have enough to go around.
#24
Nice find Whizzkid and well done M&S for making an affordable wedding cake.
#25
I bought one of these from there 9 years ago althougth mine was the rich fruit one (not a great difference in price). It was just a small civil wedding. I just bought the pillars & decorations & it was beautiful, everybody commented & asked where it was from. A few weeks ago it was included in the 3 for 2 offer as well so you got the small tier free. I also bought the medium & large tier for my mum & dad's golden wedding anniversary in the summer.

yeh thats a good idea! an extra one to just add to the volume of cake and then everyone can have at least one bite:thumbsup:
#27
Traditional and sponge don't go hand in hand :x
#28
These cakes are very good - nicely dense so they stack well. Had plenty of them brought into wedding meals at restaurant I used to work at.

Avoid the costco large cakes for a £10 though - they are a nightmare soggy as heck, candles sink right in and very hard to hold on the cardboard insert. Fine for kids though.

No tiered sponge cake stacks well on it's own, you have to use wooden dowels through the centre of the pillars, these go right through to the board, only then will they stack well.
#30
Oh it was their individual plain white fruit cakes we used to see all the time - you can buy each tier separately.
#31
These cakes are fantastic i had these for my wedding 5 years ago and decorated mine with silk flowers and it looked and tasted great so easy to do and i had lots of great feedback from my guests ...
#32
Oh what a deal pitty I've just paid £500 for mine I wish this had come up before

Me too, 4 years ago, I think it cost £80 all in all.
#34
if you add ready roll icing to the silver board it will give it a more professional look as normally you do not see the silver board. Does anyone know how far in advance you can order as M & S will not reply to my question. Voted hot as the cake is great esp sponge.

You could also decorate 1 layer as a christmas cake:santa::santa::santa:

Never use wooden dowels - risk of splinters - use the plastic ones from a cake shop, cheap and easy to cut to size!

I ordered from M&S for my mums birthday. I went in around seven weeks before but the system would not allow me to order as the delivery dates were only upto six weeks away.
I was told to ring up instead so it might be different if you do or might be different for wedding cakes. Not sure as I just waited and ordered later on.
Hope this helps.
#37
Is £12 the cost of one medium sized tier? Or 3 tiers as in the picture?
#38
The title is very misleading. It should say 'From only £12 per tier'. This has been added into the first post, but not in title. If you want all 3 tiers with all the flowers and pillars and dowels as per the picture, you're going to be looking in the region of £90 - £100. (£75 for the cake + extras)
#39
Bargain.
Noce find.
HOT HOT HOT.
#40
Amazing price and they look very good too, maybe someone who buys them can let us know what the quality is like?
Would be likely to use them next year as we have a wedding, anniversary and several big birthdays in the family.
