LET'S GET NAKED CAKES
Naked cakes are one of the hottest wedding cake trend happening right now. They go by several names, rustic, natural and naked. Either way, many bakers these days are holding back frosting from wedding cakes for an exposed look that is popular with couples looking for a traditional wedding cake. Naked cakes tend to have a more natural and organic feel, which means that ornate decorations are substituted for subtle, more natural alternatives such as fresh flowers, succulents, rosemary or lavender instead of big romantic peonies and roses". Seasonal fruit and preserves are also showcased with naked cakes. Naked cakes come in a variety of style options you have to choose from. A few bright blooms artfully arranged around the base of the cake and tucked between tiers adds to a whimsical, romantic look. The contrast between a dark chocolate cake and stark white icing is stunning elegant look. Reminiscent of the brick and mortar layers of a Tuscany church. Naturally, the stacked layers of cake and frosting create beautiful horizontal lines, but the look of contrasting drips of caramel or chocolate ganache for some subtle vertical contrast to the cake. Naked cakes are a trend that seems to be here to stay.
