Let’s Get Naked…With Our Cakes That Is

I recently came across a trend in cakes, Naked Cakes. These are beautiful layered cakes that have frosting in between the layers and very little to no frosting covering the entire cake. They are usually decorated with lovely fresh flowers and fruits and void of elaborate fondant coverings and designs.

This style of cakes has been very popular for weddings and showers lately and I must say, they are breathtaking ways to showcase a sweet confection. The minimalist, but extraordinary design of the cakes draw the focus to the colors used, and to the raw edges of where the cake meets the barely frosted layers. Many of the cakes also have a dusting of powdered sugar around the exterior of the cake, or a pretty caramel or fruit drizzle. I love the simplistic nature of these desserts and the endless possibilities for decorations. Some feel these cakes look unfinished, but I think the imperfections are the appeal of this cake. They show more personality and whimsy, which is perfect in my opinion.

I have included several of my favorite naked cakes below. Please enjoy and try to recreate them at home.
