You'll never guess where this wedding cake comes from

We cannot believe this!

A wedding is supposed to be the happiest day of your life.

There is so much pressure to have everything perfect.

You have to organise the invitations to dresses to food - so you hope the professionals can handle their one job. 

Well for 26-year-old Jade Neil suffered a brides worst nightmare, the company she ordered her $500 cake from failed to deliver.

Instead of turning into a bridezilla she remained calm and remembered seeing the Woolworths display of mud cakes in Townsville Stocklands. 

“Two of my sisters-in-law and a dear family friend made my wedding cake out of Woolies mud cake, pre-made Betty Crocker icing, fresh flowers and one of my hessian cutlery holders.” 

The bride shared the story on the Woolworths Facebook page in a post wrote on the Woolworths Facebook page, in a post that has been viewed more than 16,000 times.

The bride spoke to Mamamia about how she was disappointed at first. 

“I had just found out weeks before that I was pregnant, and couldn’t have a glass of champagne. So, really, the cake was the next best thing,” she said.

“I was also more disappointed that I had tried to support a small local business and they failed to come to the party. 

“I paid $500, and when we contacted them afterwards about the whole thing, they denied knowing who we were.”

The Queensland beautician was pretty happy with the mud cake. 

“Everyone loves Woolies mud cake.

“So if you’re doing a wedding on a budget — here is some inspo!”

Neil said the cake was prepared “between the entree and the main at the reception” by her quick-thinking female friends.

“I had no idea what was going on. 

“They all did such an amazing job, to whip together something so good so quickly. 

“I was stunned.

“I think the best part about all of this is that the mud cake was so popular.”

Other customers started sharing what they had made with the delicious mud cakes.
