This new trend is one that either brides love or hate, but it’s so different and unique that we just had to feature it! What is a naked cake? It’s simply a layered cake without icing!
We can see why some brides might not like to have a cake without frosting, but removing that thick layer of creamy goodness still has some advantages:
- Your guest might actually like it! How many times have you had cake with an outrageous amount of icing and very little cake? No more waste here — the filling is a perfect complement to the spongy cake layers.
- Great use of color! Whether you want to do different colored cake layers or use a variety of fillings, the array of shades in a naked cake is just lovely. Go for an ombre design or use colors reminiscent of your wedding palette.
- It’s affordable! Without the ornate icing designs or added accents, a naked cake is an affordable alternative if you are on a budget. Not to mention, it looks perfect for a rustic or contemporary wedding.
Afraid a naked cake is too plain for your taste? Dress it up by adding fresh fruit between the layers, or even incorporate flowers between each tier.
Here are some gorgeous naked cakes we love:
