The £20 Wedding Cake
Welcome back to the Bridal Blog, your source of bargain buys and DIY's. On today's post, I am going to walk you through how to make this simple, affordable and yummy wedding cake. However, you can still use this tutorial for other events such as Birthdays, BBQ's or even a simple get together!
Gather your supplies.
1. Victoria sponge cakes, large and small. I got my large sponge cake at Morrison's for £4 and my smaller ones from Sainsbury's, Aldi and Asda for £1 and £2 each.
2. A pot of cream cheese and strawberry jam for extra yummyness!
3. Grab your berries/flowers, or both for decor!
4. Icing sugar and any other cake decor you may want like cinnamon, sprinkles or chocolate buttons. Mmmm.
5.Your cake topper. I found this Mr and Mrs topper in my local poundstore so keep an eye out!
6. Don't forget your scissors, spoons and knives, these are your handy tools.
1. First, take apart your sponge cake and see if it needs any extra cream cheese and jam. Adding more will give your cake extra yummyness as well as extra height. However, be careful not to put too much on as your cake will get soggy and slide off. So just add a little bit at a time.
2. Put all the cakes back together. Then place them on top of each other to create the tiers.
3. From there, sprinkle a little icing sugar on the cake to start of the decor process. After you have done this, you can start creating the decor by adding your berries and flowers. We found it was easiest to start with putting the Mrs and Mrs topper in the cake first and then decorating around it. But go wild, pile on those berries and get creative.
4. To finish off, sprinkle some more icing sugar over your cake and also over the berries as this really sets things off nicely. Place the cake on a wooden create or a cake stand and it will look stylish and cute.
There you have it, it is as simple as that. You can really set your cake table off with some extra mini tiered cakes, flowers, candles and a stand of cupcakes.
A wedding cake is so nice to have, but more often than not, it can go to waist. So if like me you want to put your money to other things for your wedding day and you don't mind DIY'ing your wedding cake, then this is the perfect way to go about it! Good luck and if you try this tutorial out, don't forget to tag me so I can see your recreations!
