Like the title suggests, this post is about naked wedding cakes. I think they look gorgeous and would love to have one for my wedding! I am however a bit concerned because it may seem dry since the frosting is very limited and not covering every inch of it.
Have you ever had a naked wedding cake?
Let me know your thoughts please!

Cake without icing makes me sad.

They look nice. The thing is icing is so yummy

I think they are beautiful, I don’t know if I would personally do it though. Maybe just have lost of icing between the tiers to help with the dryness.

Naked cakes look like the baker ran out of icing, money or both. Frost your poor cake. It needs clothes.

I have been to 3 weddings with tyhem – and they are fab.
The filling is key though, and to avoid dryness flavours like lemon drizzle work well.

I don’t care for most cakes bc of the icing. Unless its cream cheese frosting I honestly think its gross and scrape it right off. Fondant in particular is disgusting to me. I love the look of naked cakes and that was the plan until we decided to have Nothing Bundt Cakes instead. I’m more interested in moist cake and filling, icing I don’t find necessary.

I’m one of those people who scrapes frosting off a cupcake, so I like naked cakes. Momofuku Milk Bar in NYC has some of the best naked cake I’ve ever had.

They can be really pretty. I worked for a big wedding cake vendor as their baker, and I went through some extra steps to try to make those cakes not dry/still taste fresh. A lot of wedding cakes are baked a day or so more in advance (depending on the queue). After being baked and allowed to cool (which can involve wrapping the cakes in plastic wrap on a cake round and letting it chill in the fridge overnight) they are torted and crumb coated. That crumb coating tends to give a frosting shield to the cake that prevents drying and keeps freshness. A naked cake is essentially, and sometimes less, frosted like a very thin crumbcoat which doesn’t protect the cake as much. If you don’t like frosting or you don’t like the bakery’s frosting, then naked cake is a good way to go, but it’s not really for me.

I love frosting, but find that many cakes just have WAY too much. So I love me a naked cake – feels like the right frosting amount

I shed silent tears when I found out I wasn’t getting any frosting.

I love the naked cake idea! I was worried about the cake being too dried as well, so we’re doing the “barely naked” concept where there is just a small amount of icing on the side. I always scrape off icing and hate fondant, but still like icing, so this was the perfect cake for us!

We are doing a “semi naked” cake for our elopement. A little bit of icing on the outside, but you can still see the cake through. I’m hoping it’s a good balance and the filling keeps it moist (ew i hate that word). I’m not really a sweets person so it works for us. Plus we are the only ones eating it lol

Naked cakes are my fav! I love cake but I hate your run of the mill buttercream/icing. Cream cheese and fresh fruit is where it’s at!
