    The look is cute, but I wanted to make sure you knew that buttercream doesn't have to be rough looking. it can look almost as smooth as fondant. My cake is going to be buttercream because I HATE fondant but it will be smooth. If you are going for the rough look intentionally though I think it's awesome. Your wording just confused me a little Smiley smile

    I like that! Very pretty, and it looks delicious. I don't like fondant either.

    I love the way the frosting looks! And even though I do like the way fondant looks too, I hear it really doesn't taste that good! And buttercream... mmmmm! Thanks girl, Google Images! Smiley smile lol

    Here is one more and then a couple of "natural" cakes (no frosting around it) that have been really popular that you might like if you are trying to avoid a ton of sugar

    I just googled it- I think I put "messy buttercream wedding cake"

    The knot probably has some images too.

    Yeah no fondant for us either! Smiley smile

    I think I will want a smooth finish, like this, I think that's buttercream.

    What about butter cream covered in fondant? then it looks really good for pictures and then you just hae to peel the fondant off and it will tase good!
