Summertime rustic weddings don't have to have the ubiquitous naked cake, which is so popular. You can have that super rich black and gold cake just like this Cake Ink creation out of Australia.
I love that the summertime cake could almost be a wintry cake with the pine needles and deep red florals. That's what's so great about the great outdoors. You can use just about anything to capture the rustic vibe. You don't have to follow any particular color theme such as pastels or whites.
This is your wedding, your cake, so make it your own!
