Despite its impressive appearance, the newlyweds managed to save hundreds by constructing it out of shop-bought cakes.

Jessica, of Texas, showed off the impressible four-tiered creation on Instagram – where users were amazed that it wasn’t handmade.

She revealed that she helped the couple slice, build and decorate the stunning cake using sweets from cut-price warehouse store Costco.

Jessica said she came up with the idea after scrapping an initial plane to bake and freeze her own cupcakes for the wedding.


They bought two £14 cakes that they cut and stacked before adding decorative frosting and flowers worth just £8.

She wrote: “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 (£7.89) @traderjoes flowers.

“Boom a $50 (£39.43) DIY Cake!

“Displayed on the stand I built using stuff from@hobbylobby …beautiful on a budget!”

Fans flocked to praise Jessica and her family for their impressive DIY skills.

One follower said: “I love that they got all of that stuff from those places!”

And another added: “You should totally do a YouTube tutorial of this! This is hella smart.”
