The Naked Cake 

There is a growing trend recently for this simple yet sophisticated cake style. As the name suggests, the cake is actually left bare with inside filling pared-down to create an outer layer of buttercream. There are several ways to make naked cakes: simply by stacking cream and sponge cake, or by putting a light layer of cream around the cake, called “crumb coat” (to hide some imperfections precisely). The advantage of a naked cake is that it is easy to make and the rendering is always very pretty! Do not hesitate to make accumulations of fruits and flowers on top and all around.

Fresh flowers

If you adore the scent of fresh flowers, then why not try this decor type. According to Sucre  the real naked cake reveals defects, and  so for decoration, often uses real flowers in harmony with its bouquet or decoration. Flowers such as; Roses, peonies, dahlia and hydrangeas are commonly used to create the finishing touches. Rustic and rural are two themes particularly suitable for decorating a naked cake. A beautiful wooden topper on top for a bohemian theme will also be a perfect finish  for your cake.

Seasonal fruits

For the 2017 season, The Cake Lady offers a novelty – the use of seasonal fruits, carefully placed to create the cake of your dreams! The fruits are often placed in the cake base, topped with a layer of cream a little thicker. This ensure the fruits in the  cake will not be visible, yet the cream will be worked to allow structure to the outlining of the cake. To embellish you wedding cake, deploy your artistic – and culinary – talents with seasonal fruits!
