Living in the beautiful West Yorkshire countryside, it is hard not to be inspired by the woodland around me. Thankfully for me, woodland-themed weddings are now a huge trend for those who love nature or want to bring the great outdoors into their celebration.
So if you are having an outdoor or woodland wedding, or just love the texture and romance of wood as much as I do, woodland wedding cakes with edible moss, mushrooms, berries and twigs are a completely unique way to bring the outside in.
Here are some of my own woodland wedding cake designs to provide inspiration for every event or season.
For the biggest effect, use texture and handpainting to make the cake itself look like a tree. Add sugar flowers and leaves to make it look even more realistic.
If that is too much, use a bark effect on a single tier.
Use a single tree as a focal point or incorporate it into a wider design.
Or just add a couple of really cute woodland animals ……..
