The Naked Cake

Nothing says party more than a cake, and we can’t think of a better masterpiece to serve your guests than these naked cakes! Whether you’re having a sweet backyard ceremony, a rustic farm celebration or an elegant soiree, these confections are versatile, pretty and oh-so delicious.

More and more couples are opting for these unfrosted beauties that add a simple and elegant style to any sweet spread. The exposed cake look is the perfect traditional wedding cake alternative, that leave out the outer layer of icing so that the texture of the cake and the colours inside are put on show.

The simple design of these cakes usually only feature three elements which you can top with luscious flowers or bright summer berries, and stack them high or keep them petite.

We’ve spied some of our favourites from our local love Baked By Olivia


We love this dainty vanilla butter cream cake with chocolate caramel ganache on the left, topped with gorgeous soft pink and forest green florals from another talented local, Perfect Style Floral. And for a real rustic charm, we also love this beauty on the right served on a wooden board with classic cream and a wild floral scheme

There is the option for a more traditional style with this Champagne Cake and Buttercream frosting topped with pomegranate and berries, or if you have a real sweet tooth, go for this double chocolate-peanut butter with caramel popcorn that we spotted over here.
