Roughed Up Buttercream Wedding Cake

This is the second or third "rough textured" buttercream cake that I have done in the past couple of months.  I hope this isn't a new trend, as you all know I like to get my buttercream nice and smooth.

But this bride specifically asked for this texture on her cake.

I spoke a little last week about trying to prop my cake photos a little more and since this cake was on the simple side, I thought it would be a good candidate for some background opportunities.

I started the propping by putting up a piece of burlap fabric.  I thought the rough fabric of the burlap would compliment that rough buttercream.  I wondered outside and grabbed a couple of branches off my crepe myrtle tree and placed them in a vase in the background.  I think it adds some visual interest without interfering with the cake itself.

Have a great weekend!


  1. The rough texture is definitely unique.. Something unexpected but yet divine! Love the background you did an excellent job with the fabric :)


  2. I love this!! It has a rustic feel to it. Cakes don't always have to "look" so perfect to be beautiful!!

  3. I do wish you would do a tutorial on how you make this look so good! It is a lot harder than it looks


Thanks for visiting the blog! I look forward to reading your comments!
