Naked Wedding Cakes

Long gone are the days of cakes layered in thick fondant, waiting to be scraped off by guests. If you’re looking for an alternative to the traditional wedding cake, the frosting-free look may be for you. These naked concoctions are chic, sophisticated, and beautiful—not too sweet, but just sweet enough. The exposed look of naked wedding cakes make them that much more interesting and can easily be spruced up with some fun decor! Surprisingly, there are also plenty of style options to choose from when it comes down to the display!

If you’re interested in this cake trend, keep on reading.

Cascading Blooms

By far some our favourite naked wedding cakes are the ones that include fresh flowers adorned around the cake. When arranged between tiers, blooms add the right whimsical and romantic touch!

Berry Pretty

Since naked wedding cakes expose what would normally be a mystery under thick frosting, don’t be afraid to have fun with the flavours! By having a fun component like fruit-flavoured filling with fresh berries, it enhances the overall natural-looking aesthetic of the cake and makes it that much more appealing to eat! Plus, having the filling contrast against a rich chocolate cake is berry pretty.
