…I mean cake-wise of course…

Wedding cakes without the traditional icing and accompanying sugar craft decorations have come to be known as ‘naked cakes’ and they’ve come a long way.

Naked cakes used to be just cakes without icing, something pared down and ‘au naturel’ but they’ve recently taken on a life of their own and can look just as elaborate as the most equisitely iced cake and I’m a big fan. Check out my Pinterest board devoted entirely to the naked cake!
Follow Ever After’s board naked wedding cakes on Pinterest.

Recent trends have been decorating with flowers, fruit and even a dusting of icing sugar. It can fit with almost any look, theme and feel to a wedding and works particularly well for garden, outdoor and summer weddings.

We featured a naked cake in our Eco-Luxe photo shoot here at the venue last year and it remains one of my favourites – so naturally yummy!
