Bride On A Budget: The 25 Dollar Wedding Cake


If you follow me on Instagram, it’s likely you’ve seen this cake before, but the story is too good to not tell again.

I was tasked with the honor of providing a cake for a wedding I was in a few years ago. Big task, right!? Although I can bake a mean cake, I knew baking a WEDDING cake was out of my league. I did a little searching and I found a great source I had to share with you.

I got a few photos from the bride of what she was anting and I called Whole Foods! I sent over a photo of what I was looking for and explained I needed a simple, naked layered cake with fruit between layers and a light dusting of powdered sugar. I never mentioned what it was for.

When they gave me my quote, I couldn’t believe it was a mere TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS. For the wedding cake! Of course, the bride had other dessert options, too, but this was such a score!

Next time you’re planning your next event and need a cheap option for dessert, give this a try and don’t say “wedding!”
