What is a naked cake you ask? A naked cake is a layered sponge cake with filling, minus the thick frosting layer. Naked cakes can be decorated with a thin, uneven, layer of buttercream frosting. They are often topped with fresh fruit, flowers, or left plain and simple. Your naked cake layers can be all the same or all different, most stacked one to three tiers high. They are beautiful and delicious, and we can definitely see why they have been a huge hit this wedding season! Get inspired… and a little bit hungry with these stunning examples.
