Go for the fresh air of the country with a naked cake. Naked cakes have only minimal icing, giving it a rustic feel. That makes the cake the star of the show.
Add homemade jam in between each layer for a cake that says this is one to savor the best of the natural world.
For the bride who really loves the country, nothing says the outdoors like a profusion of flowers across the top. Duplicate your wedding bouquet on top of the cake.
Many brides also love the idea of thinking in new ways about the flowers they use. Opt for a mixture of flowers and large icing branches. The branches can help define each cake layer.
If you’re going to have a fall or winter wedding, you can still have a wedding cake that reflects nature. Cakes that look like a birch or aspen tree are the ultimate country wedding cake design.
A cake in the shape of a pumpkin is right for the wedding close to Halloween. Although you can also add pumpkins, or other fruits and vegetables for a natural country design.
Ladies, look to leaves for inspiration. A series of lovely cascading leaves with patterns and colors take directly from actual leaves in fondant can be used to create drama.
The same is true of items like acorns and sprays of mistletoe you’ll see at this time of the year.
Color can be an important part of the wedding cake you have in mind. Think about the colors you see everywhere you look right now as you see the location.
Rich green, deep brown, scarlet tulips and even the pattern you see on the side of a horse can all serve as great inspiration for a wedding cake that shows who you are today.
A rustic wedding cake is one way to add something with a welcome bit of informality for your country wedding.
