Rustic Wedding Cakes

Rustic style wedding cakes are becoming more popular as the trend to marry in barn and teepee venues continues to grow.

These cakes tend to be more natural looking, without white fondant covering, instead with a brushed buttercream effect (semi-naked cakes) or a ribbed buttercream effect and decorated with either fresh or silk flowers. See our blog on which flowers to choose for your wedding cake.

Woodland log or bark effects are also a great option for rustic wedding cakes. These are made from fondant icing that is designed to look like wood bark and fits perfectly with a more natural themed wedding.

  • Semi-naked wedding cakes

    This is where a thin layer of buttercream covers the cake in a brushed effect so you can see some of the sponge cake coming through.

  • Buttercream wedding cakes

    This is where the cake is covered only in buttercream, this is usually finished with a ribbed or ruffle effect.

  • Simple wedding cakes

    These style of wedding cakes are more suited for rustic, barn-style weddings.
