Trend Alert Tuesday: Let’s Get Naked!

Its time for another Trend Alert Tuesday, and today is all about the latest trend in the wedding industry; naked cakes!

I know it may seem weird when icing is so yummy and fondant has been used to make some extremely beautiful cakes. How can a naked cake make an impact on your wedding or event and be beautiful? Take a look through some of the pictures and tips below and you will see why this new trend is so tasty! 

Flower Embellishments 

The more flowers at your wedding the better, so why not add some to your naked cake? Have your florist match the flowers from your bridal bouquet to the ones you want for your cake to  make it cohesive. We love the looks of the cakes attached that give your wedding a vintage, romantic feel.


Colorful Cakes

Sometimes keeping it simple can be quit beautiful. You can use your naked cake to showcase the various flavors or even match the colors to your wedding or event to the layers in your cake. Even showcasing an ombre effect with the cake is a fun way to bring color into your event.

Fruit Fusion

Fruit brings a bright, juicy colors to the naked cakes and an extra taste of sweetness. Use it as a topper, filling, or for a more modern look you can paint whole fruits with gold, or pewter to bring a striking look to your naked cake.

Touches of Icing

For those of us who can’t give up icing all together, but love the look of a naked cake, here are some ideas for you. You can use icing as decorative touches or have your baker use fudge, carmel drizzle, or powdered sugar to add a little more flavor to your naked cake.
