Country Themed Wedding Cake Design

When my best friends son got married it felt like I was celebrating my own son’s wedding. Wade is one of Joshua’s dearest friends. They met in fifth grade and stuck like glue throughout middle school and high school. Wade went with us on all of our family vacations and spent so much time at our home that the neighbors thought he was our son. He is a spontaneous, live-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, cheerful young man with a contagious enthusiasm for life. His sparkling energy guaranteed us that we would never have a boring moment. We have the best memories of him growing up with Joshua.

He met Rachel in middle school and started dating her later in high school. Rachel is a beautiful young lady with a tender, loving heart. I have no doubts that she is the perfect life partner for Wade.

Bride and groom cake cutting

The couple wanted a country western themed wedding and a cake to match the theme. Rachel had seen several cakes that had raffia and burlap on them and had asked if I could incorporate those elements on the cake. Burlap can be quite tricky to have near food as it sheds so much lint there is a risk of getting fabric pieces in the cake. To solve that problem I ordered synthetic burlap that does not shed. It worked like a charm.

I wrapped a foam block with burlap and made that the base for the cake to sit on. After covering all four tiers in fondant, I put raffia and burlap around two tiers and covered the other tiers in wide, loose fondant ruffles. Finally, I made sugar-paste sunflowers to embellish the cake. The cake was a tropical carrot cake and was a big hit with the guests.

Hi Crystal, I used 6, 8, 10 and 12 inch cake pans for this but the design would look well with different sizes too. Here is a link to a nice pan set with multiple sizes (most pan sets only have three sizes)
