Then again, I do like to critique them as well. There are something things that these magazines say, advertise, suggest, send subliminal messages on, write stories on, that I don't agree with. But then again we are all entitled to our opinion.
With that said, this season's issue of Brides Florida was really good. I enjoyed it.
There was one article that stood out to me.
It was about cake. (I love cake...don't tell...)
It was this article:
|Yes, I for real ripped it out of the magazine!|
And only because, that Black and White cake... I've seen something similar.

Ms. Debbie, in Gainesville, Florida made a similar cake.
And the reason I bring this up, and I think that these prices that they have listed, are quite dependent on where you live. New York, Miami, and Small Town, USA all have different pricing.
The flavor the cake, the quality of the fillings, the number of teirs.... all play a roll. The design as well, and I get that, really I do. But I think that some of these prices may scare brides away from using a local, amazing baker. And then they run to a grocery store chain and think they've saved a bundle - when in fact, a lot of the time the prices may not save them money. And may compromise the quality of the cake.
Stepping off my soap box.
