Y’all this DIY cake! It is no secret my bother is frugal…but this wedding took frugality to a whole new level. They bought two @costco cakes, cut them, stacked them, re-iced with buttercream icing, and covered with $10 @traderjoes flowers. Boom a $50 DIY Cake! Displayed on the stand I built using stuff from @hobbylobby …beautiful on a budget! The wedding was fun, but a sigh of relief we can get back to regularly scheduled projects around here. 🙌🏼 . . . ETA: My sister-in-law’s brother-in-law, @chefjwarley was in town from England for the wedding and took their idea of the cheap wedding Costco cake and threw it all together in a couple of hours at the venue the day before the wedding! Go follow him! (Didn’t know he had an IG, or I would have tagged him!). . . #hoylewedding2019 #countryweddingstyle #countrywedding #countryweddings #weddingcake #costcofinds #costcodeals #diycake #diycakes #diycakestand #costcodoesitagain #costcocake #traderjoes #traderjoeslove #traderjoesfinds #traderjoesflowers #hobbylobby #hobbylobbyfinds #hobbylobbyfarmhouse #hobbylobbydecor #hobbylobbywedding #hobbylobbylove
Weddings are beautiful events celebrating the love between two people. These celebrations are also usually very expensive. Just think of how much it would cost for a beautiful wedding gown, the delicious food, and a memorable venue
The wedding cake would surely be one of the highlights and that would be expensive too, with prices in the hundreds of dollars But this doesn’t mean that you can’t have a wonderful wedding cake on the cheap.
Jessica, an Instagram blogger, shared a beautiful photo of her brother’s wedding cake which only costs $50. This is what the couple did:
The frugal couple apparently bought two cakes from Costco, “cut them, stacked them, re-iced with buttercream icing,” and then covered the masterpiece with $10 Trader Joe’s flowers.
