“Naked” Wedding Cakes – The Latest Wedding Cake Trend – Updated 2019

The traditional wedding cake is typically iced in white or ivory icing, decorated with intricate details of flowers and swags, but the latest trend has given wedding cakes a serious make-under, perfect if your not a fan of icing.

Introducing the “naked” wedding cake – a cake without an outer layer of icing or buttercream, leaving the texture of the sponge cake layers to be revealed. The cakes have a fuss-free, rustic feel which will appeal to brides opting for a rustic, shabby chic wedding theme or those who are just looking for an alternative to the traditional iced wedding cake.

Chef Christina Tosi is credited with starting the trend and apparently the aim was to show off the delicious inside of the cake instead of covering it with a fancy icing exterior.

Naked cakes can be decorated with a variety of alternatives to traditional icing – fruit, berries, fresh flowers or drizzled frosting are popular choices. They can also come in a variety, or even a mixture of flavours. A cute cake topper can finish off a naked cake nicely – we love the cute bunting on this cake by The Cakery…

We also love this wooden cut-out, personalised ‘Mr & Mrs’ cake topper which works perfectly with the ‘rustic’ style.

Something old, something new, something gold, something blue…

Blue and gold is one of the latest trends for wedding cakes and looks to be still very popular for 2019. As the traditional rhyme says, the bride should always have something blue for her wedding day…why not make it the wedding cake with a stunning blue cake with metallic details.

Choose from something simple and classic with shiny gold coating…

The Cakery’s Rainbow Wedding Cake

We recently made our first wedding cake with a rainbow inside! The colourful and quirky wedding cake was filled with 6 layers of bright coloured sponge to create a rainbow when it was sliced open. This must be one of the most fun and exciting wedding cakes we’ve ever made…and not only did it look great inside it tasted great too! We made a test cake which we got to wast all to ourselves! Yum!
