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!
