Ok I’m not married yet, but I have picked out my cake. It’s buttercream as well. The cake above isn’t mind, but it’s pretty much going to be the same thing, same design, just with a cake topper instead of roses on top. But I will have roses on the side. πŸ™‚ Mine will be smaller, still a 3 tier but it will feed about 50 people.

This is my daughter’s cake (2014). It had the most delicious icing, I’ve ever tasted. Fondant would have cost $2.50 more per person. It was used in my other daughter’s wedding (2013), but the cake was included in the venue package pricing. I saw a lot of guests remove the fondant before eating the cake – myself included, so we wouldn’t have paid extra.

My mother in law made our two cakes. The larger of the two cakes was the regular cake and the second cake was a gluten-free cake for me and a couple other people who have Celiac Disease but they both have buttercream frosting because I hate fondant…and I wanted to enjoy a piece of my wedding cake!

MeandMyLouboutins:  me neither…I assumed it’s for hardcore sweet addicts? I am truthfully more of a salt addict so I can’t stomach fondant.

Dainty.doll.13:  IMO buttercream is the only way to go. What good is a good looking cake if it can’t be eaten?

I am not married yet, but mine will look something like this with some sort of shiny stuff on it, the blue is actually from another bees wedding, but I think it might be fondant.

Dainty.doll.13:  I LOVE them too. You could always do something like this.

Or a naked cake with TONS of buttercream in between the layers. 

And then there was a bee whos family made all these little bunt cakes in different flavors. You could do this with buttercream instead.

Looking at all these photos, I need a glass of milk. After I wipe the drool off my chin.

We wanted to keep ours pretty simple!  We had a small three tier and then a sheet cake.  Definitely wanted buttercream and it was delicious!
