We don’t like the taste of fondant, but our bakery was still able to achieve the really smooth appearance of it in our cake using buttercream (it was delicious!):

@TaterTot26: I love that one! I have a few very similar ones that are in the running.

This is what I’m going for though. We’re getting married outside and having a rustic/shabby chic theme going and I love the way this icing is done. Only I will have flowers instead of fruit even though I think the fruit looks gorgeous but just doesn’t really go with our wedding decor.Plus I hate to so blatantly copy someone. lol But this is my inspiration since I am in the “I hate fondant” club. lol

These are the other ones I have on file similar to tatertot26’s photo. I gotta have texture in my icing, I don’t want all smooth. lol

@thelovecats:  I love your inspiration photos!  Especially the second and third ones… I wanted to have peach garden roses (I had them in my bouquet, too) on the cake, but my hubby wasn’t down with flowers on the cake.  (He figures if it’s on the cake, it should be edible… go figure. 🙂 )

But ours was beautiful – and I’m all about red raspberries.

@M.Ruder: That cake is amazing, I love it!

@bloodgo1: Were the ribbons non-fondant as well?  That’s really talented!

Our cakes were fondant free as well because we didn’t like the taste:

ooh, so many good inspirations pics here. i love the look of textured buttercream with just a few simple flowers or fruit. i love that buttercream cakes are less than fondant since i conveniently like that look!

I didn’t even realize this wasn’t fondant as it is so smooth. Our cake will be buttercream and this is the inspiration picture I’ll be taking to our baker when we visit (soon!).

 

I want it almost exactly like this, only with hot pink on the decoration instead of the green. And our topper instead of flowers.

Picture is from theknot.com.
