​Naked Cakes: A Refreshing Trend October 20, 2015

​Naked Cakes: A Refreshing Trend, Palo Alto, California

In recent years, an intriguing cake style has been making appearances in weddings, birthdays, and celebrations of all sorts. "Naked" cakes have made a splash, and it’s easy to see why. Simply put, a naked cake is one that lacks frosting, in contrast to traditional cakes that are usually finished with buttercream or fondant. While it may sound somewhat under-dressed, this dessert is still just as impressive and beautiful as any other.

With a naked cake, colors and textures truly stand out. One can choose from many different style options when decorating and personalizing a naked cake. Whether you prefer to garnish your creation with various pieces of fruit or fresh and vibrant floral accents, the ingredients and garnishing will stand out as the visual stars on this cake style.

This trend originated back in 2013 and has really taken off. The owner of the popular Momofuku Milk Bar, Christina Tosi is credited with this make-under cake style. Since then, this whimsical creation has made appearances at celebrity weddings and posh events worldwide. 

Not only are naked cakes fully customizable, perfectly-imperfect, and on-trend, they are an unexpected departure from traditional cake design. Guests are sure to be surprised and delighted by this choice whether for a wedding, birthday, shower or other occasion. 

Whether you’re looking to shake things up at the dessert table, express your bohemian vision, or do something free and natural looking, you can achieve all these goals and more by choosing to go with a naked cake. If you’d like to learn more about this trend and get some input from our team of baking professionals, we’d love to hear from you. Reach us here to start the conversation!
