About a month ago, I met with a bride who was unfortunate enough to have the person who was going to make her wedding cake cancel on her. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to make her cake since I was already to scheduled to make another wedding cake for that same weekend. But when she told me that she wanted a naked wedding cake, I just had to say yes! In case your wondering, a naked wedding cake isn’t as raunchy as you may be thingking. It’s just a cake that isn’t covered with fondant or icing before being decorated. Cake can be so beautiful in its natural state.
As I was putting the finishing touches on the cake I was singing to myself Pretty, It’s so Pretty!
The bride was going for a rustic, country western style wedding. Between the burlap and the lace and the flowers, I think we nailed it with this cake.
In my prior post, where I shared the gold wedding cake I decorated for the same weekend, I also explained how I’ve finally figured out some methods for making flowers that work best for me. Over the next little bit, I hope to share with you how to make some of the flowers on the past two cakes I’ve shared. I’m so excited to break down how to make some of these flowers for you so that you can make them at home, using pretty common objects you may already have.
