GET NAKED! The best wedding cake trend this season

Perfect, white and thick fondant has been the go-to wedding cake style for so many years. While it is a beautiful and classic look, have you ever considered a naked wedding cake? If your wedding theme is slightly edgy or rustic, consider pushing the boundaries a little with your dessert.

The cake is usually made of sponge or madeira layers (but doesn’t have to be) with a creamy frosting in between. Fruit and flowers can be used to decorate the   sides and differet types of flavoured sauces can be dribbled over for an extra burst of flavour. Our favourite decoration is some scattered gold leaf over a semi naked cake; an elegant and picturesque style on your wedding day!

A semi-naked cake has some extra frosting or cream on the outside to give it a more refined look, but will still have some uncovered sections of the cake coming through. A completely naked cake on the other hand is only two things: cake and frosting (and delicious!). A more simple style that allows your guests to see exactly what they’re eating.

These kinds of cakes are our favourite: they go light on the fondant which lets the flavours and soft textures really shine through.

Because they don’t have a heavy coating around the outside, naked cakes can dry out faster than traditional ones. Best to speak to your cake maker for a sample and ensure the cake is made as close to the wedding date as possible.

If you want your cake to be on display for hours to your guests, something with a bit more fondant is probably better suited to your theme. However, if you want something a bit different, something a bit quirky…GET NAKED!
