Cake Trends 2013: “Naked” Cakes

A “naked” wedding cake is one of the newest trends for 2013! Basically these cakes have icing between each layer but the outside of the cake is not iced.  This gives a more rustic and natural look to the entire cake.  Usually these cakes are decorated with fruit but sometimes are decorated with flowers.  If you aren’t a fan of cakes with lots of icing this might be the perfect cake for you.

 Choosing thin or thick tiers,  round or square tiers, and the amount of icing between each tier can dramatically change the look of the cake.

 Using different flavors of cake will change the color of the outside of the cake. This gives a more modern take on this “naked” cake trend!

My favorite type of “naked” cake is this ombre cake!  How chic and modern?  You can even make small personal ombre cakes for each guest! Love!

Wedding Fashion to Wedding Cakes!

I love the idea of using your wedding day fashion as the inspiration for your wedding cake!  So much time is spent choosing the perfect wedding colors, dresses, and accessories.  Why not use this as the inspiration for your wedding cake design?

Some brides want their cake to resemble their wedding dress.  An easy way to do this is to choose some of your favorite features of your dress.  Bring pictures of your dress to your cake baker and they can help in designing a cake that matches your dress perfectly!

I love the idea of using the buttons on the back of your dress all the way down the cake!

If you have a sash try and incorporate that around the base of the tiers! Ruffles on your dress also make a great accent to a wedding cake!

Look how awesome this cake looks with the flower details and “tulle” on the bottom tier of the cake!

With a lace dress, skilled bakers can match the exact pattern of your lace out of fondant icing to go on the cake!

If you love the bridesmaid dresses you can even use their dresses as the inspiration for the cake design!

Having a colored wedding cake is sure to stand out!
