What a beauty! The naked cake
Oh I do love a tiered naked cake! They can be beautiful, sumptuous and so inviting.
Each cake has its own unique look and feel, and no two cakes ever look completely alike. There are so many ways to decorate a naked cake too, they can be simple and pared back to show off their clean lines and delicious fillings. This beauty here had just a few roses to adorn the top of the cake and an eye-catching cake topper. It was a focal point at a wedding reception held at Tom's Kitchen in Chelsea.
Or they can be enticing and decadent, overflowing with plump fruit and fresh flowers. Syrupy jam and fluffy buttercream oozing out between each and every layer and generously dusted with clouds of sweet icing sugar. This gorgeous three tier Victoria sponge cake was made for a relaxed, botanical July wedding at Hampton Court House and was all about capturing the essence of summer. Fresh strawberries,raspberries, blueberries and cherries paired with stunning roses from Honeysuckle Rose made this cake complete. If you love cake, I'm sure this cake would have you begging for a slice!
If you're looking for something deliciously tempting and elegant without being ostentatious, then you might find this one more to your taste. This cake was made for a November wedding that took place in the Sussex countryside in Swallows Oast, a beautiful rustic barn. The cake design took the season into consideration and had a feeling of autumnal abundance, brimming with figs, pomegranate, grapes and cranberries. Bloom & Burn's seasonal blooms included light and frilly ranunculus, a touch of eucalyptus and thistles. The tiers were made up of rich flavours including chocolate and red velvet.
And here's one that would be perfect for a laid-back Spring wedding. Beautiful meadowy flowers, from Nettlewood Flowers, create a soft, romantic feeling. And the cake is a veritable feast with those plump, sweet fruit.
