The unique thing about rustic cake is that it is either a naked or semi-naked cake.
For a cake to be a rustic cake, it can either have frosting between the cakes or have a slim layer of frosting on top. The frosting should be light in a way you can see the inner part of the cake. The rustic cake is simple in such a way it does not need complicated decorations.
Even though the cake is not covered or is semi-covered, you can use other things such as flowers, leaves, fresh fruits, lace, burlap, and other things you may like to cover the cake.
If you are on a budget, consider a rustic DIY cake. You only need to buy a frosted cake from a store and decorate it for the big day with natural elements such as fruit, flowers, or wood like pine cones.
For a simple wedding, consider baking the rustic cake yourself. As long as you have baking skills, the cake does not have complicated baking or frosting work needed. Apart from baking, the secret behind a beautiful rustic cake is accessories.
Suppose you decide to cover your cake with fruits. You should have fresh fruits of a nice size (the fruits should not be too heavy for the cake). Fruits to consider include strawberries, figs, pears, blackberries, or slices from different fruits.
As for a rustic cake covered with flowers, choose flowers that complement your bouquet and go with your theme.
In case your budget is tight, go for inexpensive greenery such as ferns, rosemary, succulent or olive branches. Most of these greenery’s are available for free in the garden or at a low cost, and look wonderful as a rustic element.
Don’t want real flowers on your cake? Painted flowers are gaining popularity by also adding an artistic feel to the cake that is beautiful.
Not even a tight budget can stop you from having a dream wedding. Get a rustic cake at a low cost or make it yourself for a chic and warm celebration that everyone will remember.
