This is a seriously simple and budget friendly sweet little simple wedding cake. You could make or even buy the frosted cake in plain white fondant (or ice it with buttercream and smooth it with a paper towel–here’s a really nice, thorough tutorial if you want to try it for the first time) and then add the decorations. You can buy a small package of ready-made fondant from your local craft, cake, or maybe grocery store for about $8 and then buy or make a little bit of royal icing for a few more bucks…this decoration can be done for about $10! All you have to do is tear off bits of fondant, roll them into little balls, and “glue” them on with the royal icing. If you could use play-dough as a kid you’re going to rock this simple wedding cake!
