My wedding cake was a complete disaster – I paid £180 for a three-tier doughnut masterpiece & was left with a basic mess
FOR any bride and groom, their wedding should be a day to remember.
After all, couples spend thousands on everything from the decoration to the food to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible.
But one woman, who is from the US, took to TikTok and joked how her big day was memorable for all the wrong reasons.
In a short clip posted on social media, Sara shared a snap of an impressive-looking three-tier, doughnut-inspired wedding cake which she found online as inspiration for her own.
However, in the next shot, she revealed the very different cake she received on her big day, which was completely flat, unappetising and looked nothing like the picture.
Alongside the video, she penned: "She was also an hour & a half late and yes, I did get a full refund lol."

In a second clip, Sara explained the story behind the cake and said: "She was supposed to be there at 3.30pm, my ceremony was at 4pm and then everyone was in the reception area at 4.30pm.
So the cake was supposed to be on the stage, so if she turned up when she was supposed to she would’ve had an hour to set up the cake – but that is not what happened."
She went on to explain that at 3.30pm, her coordinator started calling the cake lady every 5 minutes to ask where she was, but she wouldn’t answer her phone because she "knew she was so late."

"What ended up happening was that at 5 o’clock, everyone was seated and had eaten half their dinner, and all of a sudden she’s whipping in," she continued.
"She was so late that my bridesmaids had a plan to go to Walmart and get a cheesecake to cut because we had these little jars to put money in to see who would get the cake smeared in their face."
Sarah noted how the cake lady turned up in Crocs and cosy trousers and tried to fix the cake in front of her wedding guests.
"it turns out the three tier thing she had was broken, she had the wrong type of doughnuts, and she was so late…"

"Luckily, the venue had a platter and my maid of honour and sister went out and set up this little cake thing which is like all we had. It was a mess."
And it wasn't long before social media users took to the comments section.
"Whaaaaaaaaattttt?!?!?" wrote one, while a second joked: "She was late because she had to make a stop at Krispy Kreme on the way there."
A third quipped: "A stack of tortillas surrounded by some bagels would have made me happier. I would have been livid."
Another noted how the inspo pic was "not that difficult," to which Sara replied: "Like my family definitely could've made this but I paid £180 to have someone else do it so we didn't have to worry about it – like it's easy lol."

A further added: "She literally had to make a white cake. The rest was just shopping – Acrylic cupcake stand, Krispy Kreme doughnuts and some herbs & flowers."
In response, Sara commented: "Right?!? We even had the greenery there for her! But she just dropped the stuff & ran when she realised her stand was broken"
