Rustic Birthday Cake

I don't get to make a lot buttercream cakes because well, what can I say? It's all about the fondant nowadays.  So when my friend Ayanna requested a  cake for her 30th Birthday,  I took the opportunity to make one! She celebrated her birthday at a vineyard in Long Island, so I took that as an inspiration for my design.  I wanted to incorporate that "country chic" and "rustic" look to the cake while still keeping it very classic looking. This is actually one of my favorite cakes so far this year because I like how simple it is.   I've always been a big fan of the "less is more concept" when it comes to cake design and I'm very pleased on how this cake turned out.  All in all it was a fun day, I want to wish Ayanna many more birthdays to come!
