Though naked wedding cakes keep being one of the hottest wedding trends, buttercream ones are still in trend and seem to gain more popularity because they perfectly fit many wedding styles and themes. If you don’t feel like anything naked and want a buttercream wedding cake, here are some ideas that may be useful and inspiring for you.
Watercolor Wedding Cakes
Watercolor wedding decor is great and very trendy today, and rocking a watercolor wedding cake is a bold idea, and such a cake can’t be naked, of course. Watercolor wedding cakes can be in any shades and colors that fit your wedding, you may add drip, gold or silver leaf, or go for an ombre effect. Top such a cake with blooms and greenery, fruit and berries to make the cakery piece ideal.

Buttercream wedding cakes can seem boring to you but that’s not true! They be made more interesting with a texture – they can be white or colorful, or ombre. Top the wedding cake with greenery and blooms, with herbs and fruits or anything else you like – a topper, for example. You may also try a textural black wedding cake for a minimalist wedding, too – who said that a buttercream cake should be messy? Try geometric textures on the cake for a modern feel.

Geode/Marble Wedding Cakes
Marbleized wedding cakes are a hot trend, and they keep being in trend. They can be spruced up with gold, copper or silver leaf, with greenery and blooms on top and done in the colors that fit your wedding. If you want a cooler modern feel, try a geode or agate wedding cake, such decor can be also done only on a buttercream wedding cake. Mix two trends in one combining a marble and geode effect in one cake to make it more spectacular.
