Hi married ladies- I have a meeting with my venue Saturday and will need to give them pictures for my cake design.
I want a simple buttercream cake with some sort of piping… but I’m having a hard time finding pictures that fit the image in my head.
Anyone want to share?

I am a symmetry FREAK…so instead of being disappointed on the lines being crooked, dots being different sized, fondont being lumpy and wavy I did a rough iced buttercream….it worked well for our rustic modern wedding.

Our cake was buttercream! They made it really smooth so it almost looked like fondant, though. This is the best pic I have of it saved here on WB:

Our cake will be textured too. I’m not sure if it is at all what you’d be looking for but here’s our inspiration:

Thanks for all the responses so far!
Most of the pictures I come across are of textured buttercream, which I think is pretty- but there is nothing rustic about our wedding, haha- so it would be a little out of place.
@totheislnds: I’m definitely going for close to the 1st two cakes you posted. (but I don’t know why I have a something against that pattern on the right- I’ve come across that a lot, as well)
@MM423: Very pretty! that does look so smooth- I wouldn’t have guessed that it’s buttercream.

I’m too lazy to picture hunt but here’s a link to my baker’s photos: http://acaketoremember.com/wedding-cake-photos.html
It specifies if its buttercream or fondant. Not all buttercream has to have the ‘rough texture’ look.

Here is a pic of my buttercream wedding cake. My inspiration was actually Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s wedding cake. Good luck!

@September29: Thanks! I love the clean look of fondant but I am less a fan of the taste and the price. The bakery showed us photos of some extra-smooth buttercream cakes they had made as examples, so we knew they would be able to get that same look!

These are both buttercream and from our baker.
