Naked Cakes!

I love this trend.  Maybe, that’s because I actually love the taste of cake without fondant.  The current bridal generation agrees.  Millennial brides care just as much about the taste of the cake and the look.  Naked cakes do both.  Imagine the look of the funfetti or the red velvet without the frosting?  This trend is a great one to show off a seasonal fruit or a fruit from your color palette.

Need I say more?  One of my all time favorite cakes ever was this ombre one I chose for my daughter’s Modern Jewish Bat Mitzvah luncheon.  I never even got a piece.  People were so enthralled with it’s beauty, they couldn’t wait to bite into it for a taste.

This trend isn’t just a barn and a mason jar anymore.  It’s about bringing in elements of outdoors inside in an elegant and modern way.  The home design trend we see from the #ScottBrothers on HGTV with hardwoods and barn doors is being transferred to wedding styles including the cake.
