Naked Cakes

October 10 2017 | News

All of you sweet-toothed, sugar loving, "I'd sell my kidney for that chocolate cupcake over there" brides - I'm sorry but this post is not for you. But for those that actually like a little cake with their icing, then please keep reading! This weekend's wedding did not dissapoint in the presentation of one of the most current trends-the naked cake. For those unfamiliar with this scanadalous version of a wedding cake, let me explain. Typically the layers of the cake are (gasp) exposed completely or slightly peeking through a thin veil of icing. Sandwiched between layers are buttercream icing, a tasty ganache, or for those reaching even furthur into the less is more catergory-fruit. Typically an adornment of fresh fruit, flowers, or vine ripened berries round out the decor and work seamlessly with the natural feeling of the cake. I thought this weekend's cake presentation was a perfect example of the naked cake trend and felt very natural and elegant poised in front of the fireplace in Whitehall.
