Bride is ridiculed after baking her own wedding cake 12 hours before the big day: ‘Looks like it’s for a child’s birthday’

  • A bride shocked thousands by baking her wedding cake ahead of the big day

  • The cake probably would have only cost $30 to bake and was covered in sprinkles
  • While the bride was pleased with the ‘cute’ cake, the others were unimpressed

A bride has been ridiculed by strangers online after choosing to bake her own wedding cake the day before the big day.

Since weddings can be extremely expensive, the bride would have saved hundreds of dollars by making the dessert herself – but many described the look as a ‘kids birthday cake’ or a ‘volcano’ rather than a a dream wedding cake.

Laura, believed to be from the United States, posted a video on TikTok which has since been viewed 3.7 million times.

“I don’t know if having my wedding cake at midnight the day before my wedding was the best idea,” she captioned the clip.

In Australia, wedding cakes can cost between $300 and $1,200 depending on the number of tiers and details – but Laura’s homemade version would probably have cost less than $30.

Laura said: “I’m getting married in two days and today I’m baking our wedding cake.”

The two-tier cake was made using Betty Crocker’s Rainbow White Cake Mix (which costs AUD $4 per box) and the night before was topped with rainbow sprinkles .

She baked three eight-inch cakes and three 10-inch cakes which were used to create the tiers of varying sizes.

“It is now midnight, the day before our wedding and I am icing our cake. I’ve never frosted a cake in my life, but I think it looks pretty cute,” she said.

To add the finishing touch, Laura placed a huge topper on the cake that spelled out the couple’s name.

While Laura was pleased with the “cute” end result, others couldn’t help but criticize the homemade dessert.

‘Is this a prank? Because it feels more like a birthday,’ one person wrote.

“I hear your guest judging,” added another, a third said, “No… just no.”

“It wasn’t me who thought you were a professional baker and it was going to turn out so well,” admitted another.

But some have praised Laura for trying and saving money by cooking it herself.

‘I think this is the cutest idea!!! Expensive cakes are overrated,” one woman commented.

“Thank goodness someone has common sense and doesn’t pay $500 for a wedding cake. You are beautiful, don’t let your cake shine!’ another wrote.

A third said: “People are so mean. I don’t remember anyone’s cake at the weddings I attended. If you’re happy with it, that’s all that matters. It’s your day!’

In another video, Laura responded to haters with footage of herself on the wedding day smiling and cutting the cake.
