Naked Wedding Cakes
Are you having a rustic wedding and want a cake that will fit in with your theme? Then you really must look at the Naked Wedding Cakes trend.
It was first seen on the wedding circuit in 2013 but brides weren’t sure about the concept of no or little frosting and no fondant and generally thought of it as unfinished! The idea is to increase the fillings between the layers leave the sides of the cake exposed for a fresh look.
Lately, it has become very popular with more bakers offering their own twist on this trend. Like the traditional wedding cake, it can be decorated to your style and in keeping with your colour theme etc. The advantage of these cakes is that they are generally less expensive than a traditional fully iced cake.
The beauty of Naked Wedding Cakes is that because they have no fondant covering they tend to dry out quickly so they must be made fresh, giving your guests a fresher, lighter and less calorific slice of cake to enjoy.
I have gathered some together some images of Naked Wedding Cakes to give you some idea of what is possible…
Whatever you pick, be sure to enjoy a slice yourself!
