Country Western Wedding Cake Ideas
Yee-haw! Get ready for an old-fashioned rustic country wedding. If your vision for the perfect wedding includes an entrance on horses galloping across a hayfield, centerpieces constructed of galvanized pails filled with wildflowers, or a barn reception complete with hay bales, then these charming country western styled wedding cakes will be right up your alley!

Above you'll see some of my favorite country themed wedding cakes from Flickr. Creativity abounds on these cakes that would be a welcome addition to any western style event. When it comes to the wedding cake, you can choose to have a tiered design like most of those shown above or you can go with a shaped cake such as a cowboy hat, a covered wagon or even a pair of cowboy boots. Bakers have all kinds of tricks for incorporating a western theme into the tiers such as hay bales made using toasted coconut, red and white gingham, plastic or molded chocolate horseshoes, plus fence, rope, and raffia ribbon. Country western figurines and wedding cake toppers can add the finishing touch to the top tier of a rustic wedding cake. Here are a couple of fun wedding cake toppers that I found online. The first topper depicts a bride in her cowboy boots having a rootin' tootin' good time dancing with her groom who is also wearing cowboy boots and also a cowboy hat. The second cake topper features wooden lucky horseshoe along with a white and black cowboy hat that sit atop a base covered in white organza ribbon. What a great way to finish off a Western Themed Wedding Cake!
