I am searching for pictures of cakes and everything seems to be made with fondant. We want buttercream though, so I want an idea of what can be done in terms of design with buttercream. Does anyone have pictures of a cake made with buttercream that has any sort of design element? Filigree, flowers, ribbons. Anything!

Our cake was simple but it had pearls on it which I thought were beautiful.

This was my MOH’s wedding cake, which was buttercream frosting. It was really pretty!

Check out this site: http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-photos.html. It is sort-of a “Weddingbee” for cake decorators. I linked to the gallery that has tons of different categories.
Here: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&aid=119 is a gallery of a cake contest for all buttercream wedding cakes.
Keep in mind that a good baker can do a lot of the same techniques in buttercream as they can in fondant, but it REALLY depends on the talent of the baker. Ask for pictures of past wedding cakes.

Here’s mine. I didn’t love it because they did the colors all wrong but I posted the picture of the inspiration cake too, that’s second.
