A bride has gone viral on social media after sharing a glimpse of the “dream” wedding cake she ordered and the “mess” left in her wake on her big day
When it comes to weddings, many hope that everything will go perfectly and smoothly – after all, they can cost a lot of money.
One of the most expensive parts of the big day can often be the cake, with brides and grooms spending hundreds or even thousands on the sweet treats.
Various cake trends have emerged in recent years, including stacked cheeses and donut walls.
For one woman, her dream cake combined cake and donuts and she thought she bought just that after spending over $250 (about £189) on it.
What arrived that day, however, was not exactly what she had hoped for.

Instead of three rows of donuts topped with a large cake, the bride received a plate of donuts with a small cake in the middle.
This cake bug was shared by a TikTok user named @just.a.sara who also informed that the delivery was an hour and a half late.
Other TikTok users were horrified by the clip, with one person responding, “Supermarket donuts and a single layer cake, nailed it.”
Someone else said, “Couldn’t even jump for Krispy Kreme smh.”
A third wrote: “A stack of tortillas surrounded by some bagels would have made me happier. I would have been angry.”
After the first video went viral and racked up over 1.3 million views, Sara later posted a follow-up explaining what happened at their wedding.
She told viewers: “You know every wedding has to go wrong and my wedding had three things.
“First my dress was botched two weeks before my wedding, second my husband’s ring turned up the morning of our wedding and third my cake and this is the story of my cake.
“Okay, there were several red flags before that, but I jump to the week of the wedding when I feel like something’s wrong, so I text her like, ‘Hey, I’m so excited to have the cake at the wedding on Saturday’ and she texts back and says ‘great’.”
Sara said she then checked to see if the baker needed anything else from her and she said it wasn’t there.
However, when everyone came to the reception, the cake still hadn’t turned up.
Eventually the woman ran in with the cake – then the three-story stand she was supposed to be standing on collapsed.
“Luckily the venue had a platter and my maid of honor and sister went out and set up this little cake thing, which is like everything we had. It was a mess,” she shared.
Sara remembers making eye contact with the baker and realizing in that moment that she had to let it go to not let it ruin the day, but was disappointed they spent so much money on what they got.
Luckily, they managed to get a full refund after the wedding, so all’s well that ends well.
