If you’re getting married in a barn, at a lakeside camp resort or on a ranch, it sounds like you need a rustic wedding cake to round out your reception. The basics of any good rustic wedding cake is to keep the overall design looking natural. That means no bold frosting colors that aren’t found in nature and no glamorous details like rhinestone bands. Instead, stick to natural greenery, florals and berries for garnishes.
Don’t forget about the presentation. A wood cake stand, wreath of eucalyptus around the base and some twinkle-light backlighting or candles can transform the dessert table into a scene of pure charm. If you want to opt for a smaller cake, think about supplementing the dessert table with fun alternatives like s’mores, mini pies or bundt cakes.
