A black wedding cake is dramatic in addition to the four tiers, which will make some statements. Adorn the four-tiered wedding cake with lush fall foliage and sprinkles of brooding crimsons. It’s a masterpiece that radiates freshness atop the charming dark tones.

8. Four-Tiered Wedding Cake Decorated with Greens

Add additional rich greeneries and a rustic wooden base to complete the beautiful aesthetic. It’s a perfect choice for any rustic-themed wedding, including a ‘shed’ wedding on a farm.

9. Wedding Cake Inspired by Birch

With strong arbors, chalkboards, and tree swings, paint to complete the pieces of a romantic childhood. This delightful and youthful cake design is inspired by a birch tree cake adorned with a chalkboard monogram.

10. Wedding Cake Covered in A Cloche

A cloche can come in handy for protecting the beautiful handmade treasure. A single-tiered white creamed wedding cake represents the essence of simplicity, and top it off with a laser-cut cake topper. Add a wood slice as the base to complete the rustic theme.

11. Succulent-Topped Wedding Cake

Colorful blooms and greeneries may offer the best decorations, but succulents work great for an arbor-inspired cake. A four-tiered, rustic wedding cake adorned with green succulents of all shapes and sizes is a refreshing addition to the traditional dessert we’re used to seeing. Also, add your initials carved into the “bark” of the cake to fulfill the tree-inspired cake theme.
