- A bride has shocked thousands by baking her wedding cake before the big day
- Laura used Betty Crocker rainbow white cake mix to make the two-tier dessert
- The cake likely would’ve only cost $30 to bake and was covered in sprinkles
- While the bride was happy with the ‘cute’ cake, others weren’t impressed
- It was described as a ‘children’s birthday cake’ or a ‘volcano’
A bride has been ridiculed by strangers online after opting to make her own wedding cake the night before the big day.
Since weddings can be outrageously expensive, the bride would’ve saved hundreds of dollars baking the dessert herself – but many described the look as a ‘children’s birthday cake’ or a ‘volcano’ rather than a dreamy wedding cake.
Laura, believed to be from the US, posted a video on TikTok which has since been watched a staggering 3.7million times.
‘Not sure if making my wedding cake at midnight the night before my wedding was the best idea,’ she captioned the clip.
In Australia, wedding cakes can cost anywhere between $300 to $1200 depending on the number of tiers and details – but Laura’s homemade version likely would’ve cost less than $30.

Laura said: ‘I’m getting married in two days and today I’m baking our wedding cake.’
The two-tiered cake was made using Betty Crocker rainbow white cake mix (which costs $4 AUD per box) and the evening before it was covered in rainbow sprinkles.
She baked three eight inch cakes and three 10 inch cakes that were used to create the different sized tiers.
‘It’s now midnight, the night before our wedding and I am icing our cake. I’ve never iced a cake in my life, but I think it’s looking pretty cute,’ she said.
To add the final touch, Laura placed a massive topper on the cake that spelt out the couple’s name.
While Laura was happy with the ‘cute’ end result, others couldn’t help but criticise the homemade dessert.
‘Is this a joke? Because looks like more for birthday,’ one person wrote.
‘I can hear your guest judging,’ another added, a third said: ‘No…just no.’
‘Not me thinking you were a professional baker and this was going to turn out so good,’ another admitted.
But some praised Laura for giving it a go and saving money baking it herself.
‘I think this is the cutest idea!!! Expensive cakes are overrated,’ one woman commented.
‘Thank god someone has some common sense and doesn’t pay $500 for a wedding cake. You’re beautiful, let that shine not your cake!’ another wrote.
A third said: ‘People are so mean. I can’t remember anyone’s cake at weddings I’ve been to. If you’re happy with it, that’s all that matters. It’s your day!’
In another video, Laura responded to the haters with images of herself on the wedding day smiling and cutting the cake.
