This Couple Used Costco Cakes To Create The (Super Cheap) Wedding Cake Of Their Dreams



Wedding cakes can easily cost you upwards of a thousand dollars, and that bill is basically cutting straight into your honeymoon budget. Annoying. But here’s the thing, it’s also unnecessary. DIY Instagrammer Jessica, aka @cottagefarmhouse, shared the ultimate hack. And nope, it won’t compromise your wedding aesthetic.

According to Jessica, her brother and his new wife decided to DIY their wedding cake in the name of frugality. “They bought two @costco cakes, cut them, stacked them, re-iced with buttercream icing, and covered with $10 @traderjoes flowers.” They also built the display stand using Hobby Lobby materials. Talk about ballin’ on a budget.

If you’ve ever had a Costco cake, you know it’s really damn good. I love a good ol’ grocery store sheet cake (I’m not alone in this, right? RIGHT?), but Costco’s are next level. So you know this DIY take doesn’t just look the part.

Naturally, @cottagefarmhouse fans freaked. Fifty bucks for a wedding cake—especially one that looks like this—is unheard of. “Wow this is insane!!!!!” one user wrote. “Holy cow this is beautiful!!” another added. The posted was flooded with similar “wow,” “impressive,” and “😍” comments.

Dying to create the magic, but need a little help? Your go-to design girl has got you. After getting several requests for step-by-step Pinterest instructions, Jessica promised they were coming. “Next birthday, I plan on recreating this cake!” she said.
