Its a truth universally acknowledged that weddings are expensive, every aspect of it – the makeup, the flowers, the guests.

But the cake doesnt have to be. And you dont need to be a master baker to save hundreds of pounds.

An American designer named Jessica took to Instagram to reveal a wedding hack used by her brother.

She revealed that the groom Jeremy and his wife Gosia decided to avoid paying big bucks for a fancy cake.

Instead, they took to superstore Costco and grabbed a bunch of sheet cakes, cream cheese filling, flowers and got to business.

Jessica shared the result on her account Cottage Farm House where the homemade design got a lot of love.

Instead of staying up all night baking, the couple bought two sheet cakes from the store (which you can in British Costco stores or online).

Jeremy and Gosia spent $18.99 (£15.34) on each cake plus a further $10 (£8) on flowers, bringing their total to $47.98 (£38.75).

Then the cakes were cut into tiered squares, stacked and re-iced with buttercream icing (from home).

Relatives then helped the couple put beautiful looking flowers which included pastel roses around the large cake.

The dessert really came together when it was placed on a rustic cake stand.

The rustic wedding reception to life, wrote Jessica.

My parents have bees and sell honey so we had a ton of mason jars we were also able to use for centre pieces. We picked wildflowers on the side of the road, flowers and rosemary from my mums garden.
