When I met with this couple they brought an inspiration cake that was buttercream with lots of lines in it. It was supposed to be wood grain, but I didn't think it was woodgrain enough. I discussed it with the couple and we decided to make it wavier, with some knotholes so that no one would wonder. It was a design I had only done in fondant before.
In these photos, I used some silk flowers I keep around the bakery, but the cake received fresh flowers when we delivered it to the venue, which was DeBarge Vineyards. It was a lovely venue and this rustic wedding cake fit in well sitting on a wine barrel with the vineyards in the background.
