D.I.Y. Your Wedding Cake w/these Delicious Recipes!

As I'm into saving money I love the idea of baking my own wedding cake a week or two ahead of time to freeze it, & then frosting it the day before.

Don't expect the cake, or the frosting job to be perfect, and I recommend you both make a few practice cakes ahead of time, and a few backup layers - just in case.

And you may need or want a few of these tools to make your life easier including; round cake pans, a flour sifter, parchment paper, a stand-up mixer, pan baking spray or butter, piping bag & tips, a leveling tool, an icing spatula, a rotating cake stand, and Wilton magical cake strips that will help your cake bake evenly.

And the best part is testing out what recipe you think you and your wedding part will love the most. We personally find these 12 delicious cake recipes the most intriguing.
