A buttercream cake with raspberries, strawberries and blackberries from Buttercream.

Berry Elegant
This cheery cake is but one example of how Buttercream Wedding Cakes so perfectly lives up to its name. Ornate, textured buttercream frosting is the star of the show for a fresh take on the traditional wedding cake. Strawberries, raspberries and blackberries bring rich color, with each tier lovelier than the last.

A buttercream tiered cake with clementines, blueberries and blackberries from Farina Baking Co.

Darling Clementine 
Simplicity is the key to this sophisticated creation by Farina Baking Co., making it a classic element for every wedding reception. The bottom tier features textured buttercream, the top tier an ultra-smooth, clean finish. Clementines, blueberries, blackberries and a hint of edible gold leaf make for delicious ornament and a lively pop of color.

A tiered buttercream cake with grapes and blackberries from Amy's Cupcake Shoppe

Glam Greenery 
We love the subtle, shimmering details in this cake from Amy’s Cupcake Shoppe. Each tier is textured in sumptuous buttercream with varying techniques. Olive-leaf greenery, grapes and blackberries are dusted with edible gold paint, while bits of gold leaf add a touch of glam.

A two-tiered devil's food cake with raspberries, blackberries and pomegranate seeds from Miss Sara's Cakery.

Good as Gold 
This two-tiered delight by Miss Sara’s Cakery tastes as great on the inside as it looks on the outside. A mouth-watering devil’s food cake is covered in a semi-naked vanilla frosting for a rustic look. Dripped gold and pastel blooms add refined flair to this small wonder. Raspberries, blackberries and pomegranate seeds bring more vibrant color and flavor.
