One look at today’s cake and you’ll be enamored with its natural charm. Layers of fresh apple cake take center stage in this rustic inside-out design. Each tier has six layers of fresh apple cake with raisins, filled with cream cheese icing and stacked high. Doesn’t that sound divine? Resting on a wooden base and adorned with apples, this cake is so organic and earthy yet elegant. A dusting of powdered sugar is the finishing touch. Created by Jackie of Carried Away Cuisine and photographed by Natalie Bell, we absolutely adore this Rustic Fresh Apple & Raisin Wedding Cake!
Rustic inside-out designs with no exterior icing are becoming more and more popular. They provide a great alternative to the traditional cake for minimalist brides and the icing-averse. Their simple charm makes them a perfect option for outdoor events as well. Plus, they naturally give off a great Autumn vibe!
I must admit…. every time I see one of these inside-out cakes, I wonder how it tastes. The exterior icing of a cake helps to keep the inside moist. How do you keep a cake like this from drying out? Jackie of Carried Away Cuisine kindly shared her secret to keeping the cake moist and fresh! She coats the cake itself with a clear-drying citrus glaze before torting and filling. This protects the outside edge without changing the overall appearance. Genius! The perfect solution to ensure this style of cake tastes as good as it looks… everyone’s happy!
