Austin is well known for their rustic venues and brides swoon over different ideas to capture that rustic feel into their cake. I am so excited about this cake we made for a precious couple at Twisted Ranch this past weekend. Design and floral by Pink Parasol tied everything together in a pretty little bow to make the entire wedding flow perfectly.
The bride and groom wanted a grand elegant wedding cake that tied to their theme of rustic chic. So we got to work designing! The 4 tiers gave the cake a grand appearance while the hand painted brush strokes gave the design a tree-like resemblance. To make the cake even more rustic, buttercream barbwire cascaded down most of the tiers. The third tier encompassed a hand painted heart with their initials to give the cake a cute, personalized factor. And the fondant belt buckle completed the rustic look. However, you can't have a rustic chic wedding cake without the chic. Enter the beautiful spider mums and a touch of bling. Adorning each spider mum is a small cluster of rhinestones, just for a little pop of bling. And incorporated in the belt buckle are some small silver dragees, giving the buckle a little pop of pizzaz!
And what is the point of a cake if it doesn't melt in your mouth? This adorable rustic chic cake was a French Vanilla Cake with a Strawberry Filling and Buttercream Icing. How's that for yumm!!
