No Fondant, No Problem!

Naked cakes. We know it sounds interesting, to say the least. However, the most interesting thing about these cakes is the beauty in their simplicity! Frosting and fondant have been traded in for a more natural, raw approach to the stereotypical wedding cake and we absolutely love it. If you are as obsessed with naked cakes as we are, this blog post is for you. Here’s a few examples of our FAVORITE cakes to inspire you for your big day.


Simple, but so elegant – This cake is perfection. We love the chocolate cake with the white icing in-between layers and the flowers add the finishing touch!

Layered Dream

Looking for something a little different than the average naked cake? Just switch up your layers! By combining different flavors of cake you get a visually appealing presentation that tastes as good as it looks. Drizzle some caramel or chocolate on it and add some toppings and you’ve got a masterpiece just like this one.

All Squared Away

You’ve seen round cakes, but why not have a square cake? It’s a little funky, and a lot of fun! We also love the colored frosting on this one. What a perfect way to tie everything in and add a pop of color to your cake.

Outstanding Ombre

Since ombre is all the rage right now, you might as well do it with your wedding cake too! The greenery combined with the transitioning layers is subtle while still looking absolutely gorgeous. We love it.
