A TikToker shared her “Expectations Versus Reality” moment when she showed the wedding cake she ordered versus what she actually received.
In a video with over 340,000 views, Nashville-based singer and stylist AG Wright shared a picture of her dream wedding cake – adorned with white flowers, greens, and black details – that she discovered on Martha Stewart Living’s Pinterest page.
However, what she received when she picked up her wedding cake couldn’t have been further from the job and tragically missed the mark.
Instead of being adorned with delicate flowers and thoughtful details, the cake was instead plain white with black spots on each of the layers.
Her audience was appalled by the cake, and one of her spectators commented: “I would rock back and forth in ruins on the floor. I can not.” [sic]
Another TikTok user asked, “Did you buy it from Wish?”
Someone else stepped in and said, “I’ve never made cakes like this before, but I feel like after a few YouTube videos and a bottle of wine, I could probably make a better cake.”
After the cake unveiling video became popular, Wright shared a video showing their reaction to seeing the cake for the first time. In the clip, she is comforted by her family while she pulls her cheeks and looks like she is about to burst into tears.
Despite the initial disappointment, all was not lost.
Wright said a friend had to perform emergency cosmetic “surgery” on the cake by re-icing it before dropping it off at the wedding venue.
In the end, the cake was decorated with an elegant assortment of flowers and had a uniform white frosted finish.
In another follow-up video, she answered several questions people asked about the ordeal.
She announced the cake was worth a staggering $ 550 and said she hasn’t received a refund yet.
Despite the wedding cake drama, Wright seemed to be having an incredible day with her new wife.
She revealed that instead of buying a standard wedding gift for her wife, she was doing something very special instead.
Although the couple picked a first dance song before the big day, Wright surprised their new spouse with a song she wrote and recorded in advance of the wedding.
At first we would have been over the cake in rows, but that’s all well that ends well.
