Don’t worry if you are not a fan of fondant or royal icing, you can still have a traditional tiered wedding cake using a buttercream frosting. This buttercream wedding cake with hand made gingerbread bride and groom topper was made for a December wedding in a converted barn so the rustic finish to the frosting worked perfectly with the venue. A buttercream finish also has the advantage of letting the delicous aromoas of the cake through so your wedding cake not only looks great but smells fantastic too. Lucy opted for our much talked about carrot cake for the bottom tier, then a fragrant orange and chocolate cake in the middle with a traditional vanilla cake for the top tier.
If rustic is not your style we can make buttercream wedding cakes with a smooth finish for a more traditional look or pipe it on in ruffles and roses for a pretty, vintage feel.
