“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…

  1. Looking for a 21st birthday cake with a bit of a difference. Possibly fresh fruit to be included. Any suggestions and do you do cakes for other occasions other than weddings. Regards Catherine.
