Strawberry Wedding Cake

strawberry naked cake

One of my favorite summertime fruits is the strawberry! They’re sweet and perfect and can be used in so many ways, even on a wedding cake!

I love strawberry shortcake and today’s naked wedding cake reminds of that sweet treat.

This wedding cake was created with pound cake (of course!) and layers of mascarpone cream and strawberries. I think it might be my new favorite spring or summer wedding cake.

Imagine how perfect this cake would be at your late spring or early summer wedding – especially if you just happen to be planning an outdoor reception!

This is a “naked” wedding cake trend I would definitely like to see at a summer wedding!

White One-Tier Wedding Cake

There’s something to be said for an elegant, one-tier wedding cake.

With a smaller cake there’s no muss, no fuss but the cake can still steal the show.

While I’m a fan of big, elegant and fancy wedding cakes I also like the smaller cakes.

Whether you’re hosting a small, intimate reception and you don’t need a big cake, or you’re planning on serving other desserts (cupcakes, a dessert bar, or maybe a cheese wedding cake) – a one-tier cake can be perfect for so many reasons.

I really like this one-tier cake. First, it’s an almost ‘naked’ cake with minimal frosting. Because as much as I like frosting, you don’t want to drown a one-tier cake in too much buttercream.

And second, it’s just pretty. The fresh white roses and greens give the cake an elegant vibe, while the thin layer of icing allows the dark hue of the cake to peek through. It’s picture perfect.

This is an ideal cake for your small, elegant reception.

Flamingo Wedding Cake Topper

Thanks to the groundhog, it’s official – we have six more weeks of winter.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t start thinking warm and tropical thoughts!

I’ve had enough snow and cold weather to last until next winter so today I decided to find something fun and warm and beach-y to share – and I found this adorable pink flamingo cake topper!

And while the cake topper looks amazing on the “naked” cake featured here, it would also work on a frosted cake.

Plus, they’re super cute and would be ideal for your summer wedding – even it is isn’t on the beach.

I just love the warm weather vibe from the flamingos. They bright pink flamingos also look like they’re kissing and their heads form a heart. It’s really a win-win when it comes to this cake topper!

You can find the kissing flamingos here.

Naked Red Velvet Wedding Cake

If I had to choose just one cake flavor to eat for the rest of my life – the horror! – it would be red velvet.

The first time I had red velvet cake I fell in love instantly. The combination of the not-too-sweet cake with the cream cheese icing is pure perfection.

But today we’re talking about a naked red velvet wedding cake!

As soon as I saw this cake I had to feature it because we’re getting closer to Valentine’s Day and I think a red velvet wedding cake would be perfect for a February wedding.

Naked wedding cakes – you know, cakes sans frosting – are still all the rage. And while I prefer my cake to have extra frosting, I think a naked wedding cake done properly is pretty.

I love the look of this cake – the dark red cake is quite dramatic with the white icing visible in between the layers and on top. As much as I love frosting, I think this cake would be rather delicious.
