Let them eat cake!

 The wedding cake. According to the Bridal Association of America, the average cost of the cake is $543.  For the very simplest of cakes, you can expect to pay at least $1.50 - $2.00 per slice (times your number of guests), and the price just goes up from there (upwards of $10 a slice!) based on the elaborateness of the design, flavors, fillings, etc. 


But if you dare, you can DIY your wedding cake.

No, really!

With a few simple cake-decorating techniques, a little inspiration, and endless accessory possibilities, you might be surprised at what you can create! ♥

Here's a recipe for chocolate mud cake (or try this white cake recipe, with any of its variations: lemon, berry, liqueur, and white chocolate), with a keep-it-simple decoration idea:
