Lavender and Olive Branches
The bar has been set. Whenever someone says “rustic wedding” to me from now on, this is the cake I’ll instantly envision. Frosted in white and adorned with olive branches and lavender, it’s as if this three-tier confection grew up out of an Italian garden. But the most rustic-chic element of them all is the base that the cake sits on: a mossy slice of tree trunk, the concentric rings of which (if you’re feeling sentimental) could represent the lifetime of years the couple will spend together. Aww. And yum.
