Brides lose lots of sleep in the months and weeks leading up to their special day. There are seating charts to organize and guest favors to finalize, all tasks that require time and money.

However, many soon-to-be-wives have turned to DIY projects to make some of their wedding dreams a reality. The night before she said "I Do," one woman did something brave, but her actions didn't please everyone.

SHE SAVED LOTS OF MONEY

Saxe didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a wedding cake, so she opted to bake the delicious dessert, proudly sharing that it cost less than $50.

She geared herself with Betty Crocker's rainbow white cake mix and got to work in 2022. Two days before her nuptials, she baked the base of the cake.

MAKING MEMORIES

The night before the big day, she decorated the tiered cake with icing. In a TikTok video, she said: "This is just me laughing at myself because I've never iced a cake in my life, but I think it's looking pretty cute."

The treat was completed with thousands of sprinkles and a cake topper that read, "The Saxes." Her family surrounded her as she smoothed the frosting onto the bases. They bonded and made the most out of the moment. The bride shared:

SHE LOVED DIY PROJECTS

Instead of getting her beauty sleep or finalizing her vows, the bride gave her time and energy to making the cake for her husband and guests. Her actions were motivated by love, and she was proud of the final product.

THE ONLINE REACTIONS

When she shared the footage online, people were in two minds about her wedding cake. Many believed she was joking, suggesting there was no way she served the cake to her guests. One netizen wrote: "Is this a joke??? It's a birthday cake."

Someone else said the cake would give them a "panic attack," while another quipped it "[looked] like a dog's dinner." A netizen also added:

"The color on those sprinkles is gonna bleed into the icing overnight. By the morning it’s going to be an even bigger mess."

One user rated Saxe's cake and wished they could score her efforts lower than a zero. The online onslaught wasn't over, as another person stated: "I would cancel the marriage."
