With berries, blooms, and other nature-inspired details, rustic wedding cakes are the countryside confections of choice that have guests scrambling to score a slice. In lieu of traditional tiers and classic fondant, brides are opting for subtly stylish wedding cakes with an earthier aesthetic. These simplified sweets are dripping with woodland details and natural touches, like crawling vines, twigs and twine, gorgeous greenery, and faux-bois frosting designs. Sounds deliciously dreamy, right?
Rustic cakes are also fabulous for fall weddings, as they are the perfect canvas for autumnal accents such as candied acorns, dark frosting hues, seasonal flowers, and fall fruit. And, remember, rustic confections can be just as decadent as any traditional big day dessert. Subtly glamorous glided details and lush florals adorning simplistic naked cakes allow a bride to showcase her glitzy side in a way that’s still totally on theme. In short, these cakes really put the chic in country-chic.
