Nowadays, more and more newly-weds are opting for a countrified nuptial with a naturally beautiful and romantic vibe. Whether you’re going to get married outdoors, at a barn or up in the mountains, a perfect wedding cake will complement the accent of your celebration. Rustic wedding cakes are the yummiest end to any country-chic wedding day.
Don’t know how to throw a rustic wedding cake that fits into the theme? The following confections are great examples of all you can do with a rustic theme for your wedding cake.
Semi-naked cakes + Wooden slices
Wood slices are super affordable, cool and can be used in a lot of ways. Today many couples choose to use wooden slices to DIY wedding things like placemats, menus, cards, gifts, plates, and so on. They are easy to craft to your satisfying size and shape, and can lend a rustic vibe to the cake. For more layers, embellish some seasonal fruits and cute flowers or any other natural produces and you will get an amazing confection for everyone to love.
Drip wedding cakes
Drips work well on both extravagant cakes and simple ones.
Trickling caramel, chocolate ganache, pink glaze, and ruby-red icing, if you are a lover of frosting, then you won’t miss out a drip wedding cake. What’s more, you are free to add other accents into the dessert, like macarons or chocolate bars, as they don't distract from the drips. Hearty fruits and including figs and berries are popular choices for an earthy vibe. Besides, your cakes will be especially creative and unique because the drip can be of any color: white, gold, chocolate, caramel, or any other.
Elegant white wedding cakes with simple decors
As a blend of rustic and elegant, obsessed with the pureness of a white wedding in the barn, lakeside camp resort, or on a ranch, with pastel ambiance and handmade details everywhere. Especially for couples who like a budget-friendly celebration and minimalist style, having a plain cake adorned with greeneries or florals is the best choice.
Donut wedding cake arrangements
Over the years, we've seen couples serve traditional breakfast treats in addition to a classic wedding cake. Accordingly, donut arrangements like donut wall, can be served as a coffee service garnish, and as sweet and whimsical wedding favors.
In fact, some donut stations are so eye-catching that they serve as the focal point of the reception.
Birch tree wedding cakes
Birch tree cakes, which are designed to look just like one of our favorite fall sights, have been popping up everywhere the autumnal season.
White, flaky bark, the hallmark of a birch tree in fall, can be perfectly mimicked with fondant. But that etched base is the only rule when it comes to this trend. Cake toppers, floral or fruit accents, and personalized "carvings" are all ways to make a birch cake your own.
Naked wedding cakes
Instead of frosting on the outside of the cake with layer upon layer of fondant or buttercream, many bakers are increasing the filling between tiers and leaving layers exposed for a fresh (and delicious) look. Whether you're just not a fan of sweet frosting or love the rustic vibe of these bare desserts, a naked cake is a great option that allows you to have a more unique cake that still fits the "classic" mold.
