I had a blast making my first wedding cake today. Even more exciting than that, it was in the style of one of my favorite cake trends known as the “naked cake.”
I fell in love with the naked cake a long time ago and have fallen in love all over again since I have been commissioned to create this wedding cake for a family friend. Some couples prefer lavish and somewhat complicated weddings, and some don’t. So when I heard of their plan for a simple and elegant ceremony, I knew this was the perfect cake for the occasion.
Rustic and simplistic, the naked cake is one of the most lovely cake trends right now. It is the polar opposite to most wedding cakes which tend to be overly decorated and overly sweet. It is simplicity you can see with layers of cake, filling, and a thin coat of buttercream. What you see is what you get, and it’s all you need. By adding some fresh flowers with a bit of foliage, I ended up creating a cake reminiscent of a Pacific Northwest forrest in the springtime.
A lovely cake for a lovely couple. Wishing them love and happiness for many years.
