"Tie the Knot" Wedding Cake

I've seen some "tie the knot" wedding cakes that feature a nautical theme (with sailor knots!), but this is the first riff on the idea with a more rustic and playful look. Cake designer Faye Cahill in Australia created a simple two-tiered cake covered in fondant, then embellished the tiers with brown icing designed to resemble twine. The top tier gets a simple knot, while the bottom tier is decorated with lengths of "twine" spelling out the word "LOVE." The remaining ball of twine is adorable displayed at the base of the cake. I can imagine this cake working for a rustic wedding in a barn or farm, don't you?
