We asked Claire Houghton-Byers from Mama Cakes how you can choose a cake on a budget.

"Be clear and honest about your budget with your chosen supplier.

"Consider using fresh flowers instead of sugar versions. These involve less work and are cheaper.

"Compare the price of different flavours. For example, fruit creations cost more than sponge bakes.

"Look at the number of guests attending, and remember not everyone will want cake. We suggest you cater for 75 per cent of your friends and family to avoid waste.

"Substitute one tier with a dummy layer. This will make the finished product look taller and help reduce the price.

"Serve finger-sized portions instead of dessert sizes.

"Keep the design simple and avoid lots of detail."
