The smart couple ordered the two $ 18.99 cakes from the Costco supermarket and then adjusted them, adding extra cream and some flowers to decorate it
Jessica said on Instagram: & # 39; It's no secret that my burden is frugal … but this wedding brought austerity to a whole new level.
& # 39; I was able to tell my brother that he & # 39; had costco's cakes and threw real flowers on it & # 39 ;. They ordered two of the $ 18.99 sheets with cream cheese filling and were picked up on the way to the venue before the rehearsal dinner.
& # 39; With the help of the brother-in-law of Gosia (who happens to be a chef in England) the cakes were cut into squares, stacked, re-frozen and some of the real flowers from the piles of flowers arranged used for decorating (worth about $ 10).
& # 39; All displayed on a rustic looking cake stand made with supplies from Hobby Lobby. & # 39;

Jessica & # 39; s followers could not believe how good the couple had been and applauded what the cake looked like: & # 39; Wow !! This is a brilliant idea and beautiful! & # 39; said one.
While another comment: & # 39; Wow !!!! Astonishing!!! This is so smart. & # 39;
Another joke: & # 39; Wonderful. I just can't believe they have something for $ 10 at Trader Joe & # 39; s. & # 39;
Others loved the decoration: & # 39; That cake is absolutely beautiful! Your decorations are fantastic !! Congratulations to the happy couple! & # 39;
Jessica Hoyle-King, from Texas, revealed how her brother and new sister-in-law created a wedding cake for only $ 50 (£ 40) using Costco baking sheet cakes.
Jessica added that she loved how family liked to save money: & My brother and my whole family are very practical at making do-it-yourself and saving money where we can.
How it was made
Two Costco cakes – $ 18.99 (£ 14.96) x 2 – £ 37.98 (£ 29.92)
Flowers – $ 10 (7.88)
Icing – $ 2 (£ 1.58)
Total: $ 49.98 (£ 39.37)
& # 39; Jeremy and Gosia enjoy traveling (they met while touring Chernobyl!) And wanted to save for their honeymoon (they ended up with honeymoons in Rome!) And didn't spend too much on a wedding. Their flower budget was zero. & # 39;
She also revealed that before they planned to make cupcakes for the Costco idea: & # 39; Their pie budget was & # 39; let's make cupcakes and freeze them for the wedding & # 39 ;.
