Thursday's Wedding Tip #35

Happy Thursday!!!

Wedding tip # 35 is making your own cake on a budget using coupons. Think of how many cakes you eat during your wedding process- from your engagement cake, bridal shower cake, rehearsal dinner cake, etc.

Now what if you could make these smaller cakes yourself. I never thought of doing this until recently when a good friend of mine asked if I would help bake a cake for her bridal shower.

So I ended up buying good old Betty (Betty Crocker Cake Mix). Of course I looked for when it went on sale as well as paired it with coupons. There are some great new Betty Crocker coupons out here. The best is $0.75 off when you buy any flavor/variety Betty Crocker SuperMoist Cake Mix. You can find these mixes for about a $1 at Walmart.

Ok, so I am not saying to make your own wedding cake, but for all the smaller events leading up to your big day this is a great way to save some money and bond in the kitchen.

If you missed last week's wedding tip on engagement parties, check it out here...Enjoy!


  1. I definitely wouldn't recommend making your own wedding cake, but for the smaller events it sounds like fun. You can get all kinds of fondant and cake supplies at Michaels. I really want to take a cake decorating class.

  2. I made my own grooms cake in the shape of his favorite bball team.

  3. Publix usually has BOGO FREE!!
