AOk so im an established cake decorator in my city... And im doing my own wedding cake.

People are expecting something amazing as obviously i do it for a living, but im seriously stuck with even thinking of a design!!

I was considering going completely plain to shock.. But i know my guests wil be dissapointed.

My day is very floral so im going to have lots of fresh flowers on there in pinks and peaches... Its also rustic.. But ive thrown a spanner in the works with my heavily beaded a line dress.

I was considering covering the four tiers in beads/ glass/ivory pearls to coordinate with my dress (have added a photo of the detail) with fresh flowers cascading down the front but i think i need to add something rusticy in there and not so glam and glitzy!!

Does anyone have ANY ideas or suggestions im literally throwing blanks!! Its going to be all dummy cakes so doesnt matter if its not edible its just for show :)

AYou could do a "rustic" iced cake with fresh flowers cascading down it. Brings together the floral and rustic parts of your wedding. I would see if the florist has any way to bling the flowers a little. That would jazz it up a bit without being overly glitzy.

ACongratulations on your wedding!

How about rustic bc iced, fresh flowers as planned, and a fondant ribbon with sparkling sugar/disco dust mix glued on it with piping gel around the base of each tier?
