Trend Alert: Naked Cakes

Okay, so the name is NOT the loveliest…but the cakes themselves sure are! We’re talking about the hottest trend in wedding cakes right now – naked cakes! With the explosion in the whole rustic wedding thing, naked cakes are popping up everywhere! The cakes, which are filled and frosted on top but not the sides, are a great complement to the rustic décor of lots of wood and burlap. We like them best when topped with greenery, sparse flowers or fruit! But some cake designers have started giving these naked cakes a more clean and modern feel. No matter which style direction you take, the end result is truly lovely. Take a gander:
Rustic naked cake with fruit and flowers

Super modern unfrosted cake with clean lines.
Square chocolate naked cake filled with pink frosting and decorated with flowers.
Elegant un-frosted cake with lush, seasonal flowers.
Chocolate exposed layer cake with berries and whipped cream.
Half naked cake with ombre drizzle.
Simple rustic naked cake.
Elegant baby's breath adorned naked cake.
Rustic naked cake with caramel drizzle and pomegranate seeds. 
Dulce de leche unfrosted cake from Momofuku Milk Bar accented with orchids and flowers.
Large naked cake with lush roses.
Clean piped-edge chocolate unfrosted cake with cork initials.
Purple ombre naked mini cakes.
Chocolate exposed layer cake with berries and caramel drizzle.
Ombre unfrosted cake with succulents.
Simple, clean unfrosted cake with fruit and greenery décor.
Large rustic, berry-accented frosting-free cake sprinkled with powdered sugar.
Whimsical square color-blocked frosting-free cake.
By the way, if you simply cannot bring yourself to call this trend “naked cakes,” other acceptable monikers include “exposed layer cakes,” “unfrosted cakes” or “frosting-free cakes.”
Brides, what do you think? Do you like the naked cake or are you more of a frosting girl?
