Wedding Trend I'm Loving :: Unfrosted Cakes

July 18, 2013

I've skimped back on wedding posts since we've been married... and it's been 4 years so the posts are fewer and farther between. However, with all the great wedding trends floating around the web I just have to jump in and talk about one in particular today.

If I could undo one aspect of my wedding and take photos all over again, I'd have an unfrosted wedding cake.

I just love the look of the browned white cake edges with frosting peeking out, and dusted with powdered sugar. 

I love this idea so much that I have a birthday cake idea for Jeremy this year that will likely look similar to this.

How do you like the cake above with the jam sticking out? This would be a great way to incorporate a wedding color, just pick a jam that goes along with your theme. 

This Momofuku Milk Bar cake from Real Simple is definitely interesting. Even though it is a naked cake, it has it's edges smoothed over to give the icing a more polished look. Granted the sprinkle cake colors aren't my thing, but it could easily fit into a outdoor, vintage-y, hip wedding. 

I love that this cake incorporates what I like from the Momofuku cake with the polished edges, but adds in the pearl bead piping with a pretty floral topper for a great traditional look. 

I love this chocolate cake! If I were to use this as a grooms cake I wouldn't necessarily put flowers on it, but berries would look beautiful and not make the cake overly feminine. 

Girly-ness seemed to be something Jeremy battled against at our wedding. His cake wasn't girly and large, and it certainly wasn't a dead animal or sports cake, but he did get his say in on a few wedding aspects. 

Lastly, I leave you with this pretty naked cake that would be great for a fall wedding. 

This apple cake really makes me think a peach one for a spring/summer north Louisiana wedding would be divine. I say north LA simply because of Ruston's Peach Festival. 

But seriously, this cake, gorgeous! 

What do y'all this of this naked wedding cake trend?
