Weddings can be ridiculously expensive. Once you’ve paid for the flowers, photographer, caterers, wedding drinks and venue, the costs can rack up pretty quickly. And that’s not to mention the dress.
So if you’re fretting over your wedding budget, this smart hack could help you save a bundle – a DIY wedding cake kit.
According to Stork, the average price of a wedding cake is an impressive £523 which, along with the rest of the wedding costs, really is the icing on top.
However, those who fancy themselves as a baker are more likely than ever to make their own cake, which is why the Stork brand has created its own DIY “bake by numbers” kit for the UK market– and it’s a total bargain.
