Weddings are expensive. Many brides and grooms try to find ways to stretch their budget any way they can. Wedding cakes can easily cost over $1,000, but one couple found the ultimate DIY hack to save big on theirs and you’d never know it by looking at the cake.
DIY Instagrammer Jessica, aka @cottagefarmhouse, recently shared an image of a wedding cake and says her brother and his new wife found a way to be frugal with the dessert and not compromise a thing.
She writes that they bought two cakes at Costco, cut them, stacked them, re-iced them with buttercream icing, and covered them in $10 flowers from Trader Joe’s. These do-it-yourselfers even built the cake display stand using materials from Hobby Lobby. They ended up with a four-tier masterpiece that looks straight out of a bridal magazine and only spent $50!
People on Instagram have been blown away that this lovely cake was a DIY project done for so cheap. So many comments flooded in asking for step-by-step Pinterest instructions, Jessica has now promised to share them, so you can create this magic, too.
