I have lost count of the amount of times I have written and rewritten this post but never actually published it. I’ve had a real rocky road when it comes to mental health and this was especially prevalent when I was planning our wedding. This past week has seen lots of people taking to social media to talk about mental health and break the taboo that surrounds public admissions of mental illness in honour to World Mental Health Day. It is this taboo that has prevented me publishing this post for too long and finally I have found the confidence to share my experience.

As Julia Childs once said, ‘A party without cake is just a meeting’ so what’s a wedding without a wedding cake?! When you start thinking about your wedding cake and contact suppliers for quotes the most common reaction is ‘How much?! For a cake?!’ If you don’t have a single baking bone in your body or have your heart set on the a certain designer then a price of £500+ can be justified but for the budget savvy bride, a DIY wedding cake can save you mega bucks if you’re willing to put in the time. There are lots of options for a DIY wedding cake ranging from buying budget cakes from COSTCO and glamming them up to making your entire cake from the hand carved topper to the red velvet bottom layer. What’s important is to go with the option that best suits your ability and time frame. Here I have shared some of my top tips I have learnt first hand from DIYing wedding cakes.
