Shabby Chic Country Cake

My lack of posting can only mean one thing….wedding season! That being said, I am very excited to get back to sharing what we’ve been up to!

Earlier this summer we made a cake for an outdoor, country themed wedding. The event was very low-key and even had a horse shoe toss for the guests.

We decided to go with a “country kitchen” feel for the cake. Simple lines but intricate details. We created a tiled pattern and then distressed the tiles using a water colour technique I learned back in my art school days. I loved making the tiles the focal point of the cake and creating a real “pop” to the design with the white and blue detailing. By choosing a square cake design the cake was able to have a modern vibe while still pulling into play the airy, country feel. I would best describe it as country shabby chic. Did I just create a new design aesthetic? 🙂
