Simple, rustic and naked wedding cakes here to stay
I have to admit, I used to have an aversion to making simple wedding cakes. Rustic wedding cakes, naked wedding cakes, and those simple wedding cakes with not a lot of detail used weren't my favourite wedding cake orders.
Not any more!
There are a couple of things I've realised over the last couple of years, and I thought I'd share them with you. Wellington weddings are often relaxed weddings, not super formal affairs. Our summer weddings often have grazing tables, picnic lunches, canapes and cocktails outside.
A lot of the wedding cakes I've delivered recently have been to beautiful relaxed venues - vineyard weddings, barn weddings and country weddings in rustic settings like Ohariu Farm and Boomrock. And rustic or semi-naked wedding cakes are perfect for those settings.
Sure I love making art deco wedding cakes and beautiful sparkly geode wedding cakes, But I love a rustic wedding cake request - usually because that means the bride and groom are laid back, relaxed people too.
A lot of the rustic wedding cakes I make are rustic circle designs with beautiful fresh flowers. They're not super complicated or fussy, they're just beautiful, simple and delicious.
Of course, they have to be delicious too. Whether you go for a modern, traditional or rustic wedding cake, what people will remember is the taste. We offer free cake tastings for all our couples once they've confirmed their order. You get to mix and match cake, fillings and frosting flavours to find the perfect cake for you. And yes you can mix it up and have different flavours for each tier.
At the end of the day, what every bride and groom wants is a special day where they get to relax and have fun with their family and friends. It's your wedding, and everything about it should be special for you.
Get in touch to have a chat about what you'd like. We have lots of ideas and examples, and of course, you get to try before your big day, which is probably one of the best parts of organising your wedding.
