Our Favourite Naked Wedding Cakes

The naked wedding cake, known for its simple design, is becoming increasingly popular. Semi-naked cakes also make a perfect dessert addition to any wedding. The flavors are the main focus of these cakes since the only topping is the buttercream. These cakes can be made in a variety of sizes to suit either intimate or larger weddings. The decorations on the cake are also unique and can be tailored to suit the couple’s special day, adding those perfect finishing touches that fit with the theme.

What Exactly Is a Naked Cake?

Definition: An unfrosted or ‘naked’ cake is one that features layers of sponge with a flavorful filling to add both taste and moisture. The outside of the layers is often lightly covered with buttercream rather than fully iced with fondant. This style of cake is a departure from the traditional wedding cake, which is usually fully frosted and may have layers of buttercream atop the sponge.
