Buddy Valastro, the chief baker at Carlo's Bakery, is known for his elaborate wedding cakes. A cake designed to serve 200 people can cost as little as $2,400, but his custom cakes often cost over $5,000. These cakes typically contain mechanical elements that allow decorations on the cake to jump, move or spin. Cakes featuring pyrotechnics run closer to $15,000 each. In 2011, Valastro created a wedding cake that was decorated with precious jewels and cost the lucky bride $30 million. Valastro says the real cost comes with the custom decorating. He can provide a small, simple wedding cake for under $1,000. A one-tier cake can be had for as little as $300, with an even simpler sheet cake available for around $100.
