Rustic, Country Wedding Cake



   This past weekend was my brother-in-law's wedding in Texas.  I offered to make the cake because the couple is not picky and the design was simple.  This was, however, a huge cake (200+ servings, 4 tiers).  The theme for the wedding was sort of rustic, country chic.  The space was decorated with burlap, lace, and country accents like mason jar centerpieces.  The wedding colors were teal and coral, so I decided to do little pops of color for this cake using the coral color (gumpaste flower detail and base ribbon).  The cake itself was golden vanilla with vanilla buttercream and triple berry (strawberry, blackberry, and marionberry) filling.  The groom's cake was German chocolate, with coconut pecan frosting.  I had found a picture of a cute groom's cake on pinterest that I attempted to copy.  My brother-in-law is an avid hunter.  My mom-in-law decorated the deer with bridal outfits, and I thought her touches (the garter on the bride's hindleg and the diamond ring on hoof) were hilarious.     Congratulations Cage & Melinda!  We wish you many years of happiness together...
