This Burlap & Lace Rustic Wedding Cake might be one of my all-time favorite wedding cakes… and yes, I know I say that often 😉 I honestly can’t even tell you why I love it so much but I do!
Anyway, I’m going to cut straight to it today and give you some nuts & bolts details. My husband has the day off and we’re going to Home Depot and fun stuff like that – so I’ve gotta be short!
The cake was Italian Cream with Cream Cheese Filling (that’s a cupcake recipe but I use the exact recipe to make cake like you see above!) and then covered in homemade marshmallow fondant. The tiers were 6″, 9″ and 12″ rounds baked in Magic Line pans!
I purchased this Burlap & Lace Table Runner, then cut it length-wise into pieces to wrap the cake. I put wax paper between the burlap & fondant as a barrier (although I really don’t think it would’ve been a big deal if I hadn’t.
For the flowers, I used pre-made roses I bought from Wholesale Sugar Flowers, I made tiny blue flowers using a punch/mold from the Wilton Gum Paste Flowers set and adding a white sugar pearl with royal icing, and I made the burlap roses loosely following a tutorial I found on Pinterest.
And truly… I think that’s all I can tell you about this cake. It was fairly simple to pull together once I had everything on hand and the effect was just beautiful… or at least I thought so!
OH – the cake stand. It is a Martha Stewart 12″ Pie Crust Cake Plate! I don’t use it often, but it really fit well with this cake.
