Happy Wedding Wednesday everyone! Starting this year, I actually have a blog schedule written for the year which consists of so much more variety than this blog has had in the past. AND, this morning, we are starting with a trend that I am starting to hear about more and more when it comes to wedding cakes. I think it's perhaps because brides are always looking for something that's different in their eyes than what everyone else has done - but this is a trend that I think has real staying power potential.
The Naked Cake.
When you hear that, what comes to mind? It's funny, because I actually had to think about it for a while myself - but when I got online to google it (yes, I really did that), I saw a photo of one that was really unique and I was immediately intrigued. This one to the left that Style Me Pretty has on their site immediately made me swoon.
This is something that can look so pretty - as long as it is done well. Can you imagine how much work goes into one of these? I personally love the look of the one to the left, but also the ones in the collage below. So simple, but so pretty. With a few flowers placed just right and some masterful icing adjusting between the layers, perhaps adding a dash of powdered sugar, and your wedding cake is ready to go. I love the versatility that you can have with these. Especially the fact that guests can actually see the flavors that the cake will be - no more guessing and wondering, because it is right there for you to see.
What are your thoughts on the naked wedding cake? Is it a trend that you will try at your own wedding, or hope to see at one where you will be a guest? Or are you wanting to stay with the more traditional wedding cake? I'd love to hear what you think on this one!
