The costs for wedding cakes can easily run into the hundreds, even thousands, of dollars, and there is no guarantee that the cake is even going to be tasty. At the very least, it’d look pretty though.
Well, all of that is about to change because Instagrammer @CottageFarmhouse shared an amazing wedding cake hack that is guaranteed to provide an awesomely flavorful cake for a fraction of the cost–just head to Costco!
Everyone loves a Costco sheet cake and this wedding cake is made from two of Costco’s regular cakes. Instead of hundreds, this cake was put together for around $50!
She explains that her brother and his wife bought two sheet cakes, cut them into varying sizes, then stacked them to form a layered cake.
The cakes were re-iced with buttercream icing, and the bride and groom purchased $10 worth of flowers at Trader Joe’s for decorations. They even found the cake stand at Hobby Lobby for another deal.

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
This beautiful cake looked super professional, tasted great, and didn’t cost the bride and groom an arm and a leg to put it together.
Can you imagine the possibilities for birthday cakes with this hack? Amazing and just one more reason to love Costco!
