How To Make Rustic Wedding Cake
Ok so I love my box mix cakes! It’s easy and tastes wonderful so we made this cake thinking that if it doesn’t work out no worries we can do another last minute cake. So we got started. I brought the mixes and Lynn grabbed the ingredients. We baked the cake and set in the freezer.

I’ve had the best frosting recipe hanging around for years. There is just a few steps and then the skill of putting it on the cake. So you will want to whip 2 cups whip cream, 1/2 cup brown sugar. If you want it a little sweeter add more sugar. I know brown sugar sounds strange but now I will never go back. Then you are going to add 1 tsp vanilla bean paste. If you want a more stabilized whip cream add about 1/2 tsp of cream of tartar. Whip until you get stiff peaks.
Wedding Cake DIY
I had Lynn smooth the frosting out on the side of the cake. For this rustic cake DIY you don’t need it to be perfect I mean it is suppose to be rustic. If you are doing layers be extra carful with centering on the tops. We just measure and made little marks and set the next cake on top. Then your done now time for decor.
