Rustic Wedding Cakes, Naked Cakes and Butter-Cream cakes.
Over the last year or so, we have made a number of wedding cakes designed to fit in with more relaxed rustic themes. This type of cake can be made in a variety of styles, such as ridged butter-cream, semi-naked cakes and naked wedding cakes dressed with fresh berries. We can also incorporate hessian and even raffia trim to complement table decor and chair covers, so that the cake echoes the overall look of the wedding and provides an appropriate centre-piece for the all-important cutting the cake photos! We show some recent examples below- the sizes and details can all be adjusted to suit individual tastes and differing scales of wedding, from small intimate family groups, up to the larger marquee wedding.
