Wedding Cakes Get Naked
Un-frosted, or “naked,” wedding cakes are this season’s fastest growing trend. As we predicted in January, weddings this year are all about a romantic simplicity, and these aux-natural cakes act as an additional simple, organic , visually appealing decoration to the wedding reception space.
Perfect for summer and outdoor weddings, the bride and groom won’t have to worry about the heat doing a number on their butter-cream confection as the sides and top of the cake are completely free from icing. The layers of cake are then packed with tasty icing that’s not cloying.
Due to the exposed-crumb finish of these cakes, it is difficult to keep them moist, therefore they must be made only one day in advance, as opposed to their frosted cousin, the traditional wedding cake, which can be made up to five days in advance. This provides guests with a dessert of the utmost quality and freshness.
What we really love about the naked cake is the ability to make it unique to the reception space and wedding theme. Though delightfully bare on the outside, the cake can be beautifully adorned with delicate blooms to tie in centerpieces and bouquets. Adding floral touches to the bare cake fills a bride’s desire to keep the season in mind.These precious accents to your naked cake is where the talented florists at Marietta’s Peachtree Petals steps in.
