Today’s naked chocolate cake is perfect for fall (and even a Halloween-themed reception).
I’m normally not a huge fan of “naked” cakes – I love icing too much to serve a cake that is seriously lacking in that department.
But this cake is too pretty to dislike! I love the dark chocolate cake and the hint of light pink icing peeking out from between the tiers.
It’s simple yet elegant. And if pink isn’t your color I’m sure your baker would be happy to just add white icing.
The elegant look is continued with the fresh flowers on the cake. Again, if pink flowers aren’t part of your color scheme I think this cake would be so pretty with some bright fall flowers too. I’d love to see it with deep red Gerbera daisies.
