I really like the idea of a naked cake. Of course, the only place I’ve seen them is on Pinterest. So I’m wondering if anyone’s ever actually had one.
Please share pictures! 🙂
Also, what did you use for flavours and fillings?

So like just a sponge or chocolate cake? I don’t see why it would make a difference. As long as it tastes good I am sure guests wont care.

I’ve only really seen this post on Cake Wrecks (only the last picture is a “cake wreck”)

@nineteen87: That’s what I was thinking about too. What is the white powder? I think they’d look way better without that!

@Chrysoberyl: Yeah the powder makes it look sloppy.
This is from a real wedding…
I see that and imagine this happening (would be a nightmare to serve):
I think with shorter tiered cakes you wouldn’t have to worry about this so much.
kind of like this:

I don’t know about that…I think that’s a trend that brides are going to look back on 10 years from now and wonder “what was I thinking?” when they revisit their wedding pictures.
Plus, I’d eat the cake if I was a wedding guest, but I’d think it is odd.

Out of interest… Has anyone been quoted on a naked cake? Is it substantially cheaper because there’s no fondant or icing covering it? Or is getting those layers so perfect equally labour intensive, thus making cost pretty equal?

@nineteen87: mmmm. Yes. this is my ultimate fear. As much as I love these types of cakes, there’s nowhere to hide if something goes wrong.

We had a naked cake, but I don’t have a picture of it yet. My friend’s mom made it for us and it was beautiful. We had vanilla cake with cream cheese frosting. It was perfect for our rustic themed wedding 🙂

@ms_protea: I make wedding cakes now and then and if I were quoting for this kind of cake it would be massively cheaper. Fondant etc. takes so long to do – this would be so quick. Getting the layers looking nice would not be hard – the tin they are baked in is smooth and makes them uniform is size.

I wanted to do something similar for ages… but FI said no! You could easily make these at home…
