Naked Cake

What is a Naked Cake?

Naked cakes are layered cakes that are served with little or no frosting.

These cakes were one of the biggest wedding trends in the 2010s.

Key Points

  • These cakes are easily recognized by their exposed layers and simplistic garnishes.
  • The majority of Summer brides often opt for a naked cake. Buttercream can melt in the hot summer sun so opting for minimal frosting is usually a good idea.
  • These cakes are often made with a jam or meringue-based filling.
