What do people think of naked wedding cakes?
Love them! Brilliant if you don't like fondant.
I think they look like half finished cakes
I love them
A cake is a cake to me, I'll yam it down whatever its wearing
Well they are half finished as they don't have the fondant on it.
We hate fondant just so was thinking of just having a Victoria sponge as that what we enjoy, just worried it may dry out.
I really like them
Have you looked at cake jars as an alternative?
they dry out
Not a fan myself but if you like them go for it. End of the day it's your wedding so have what you like.
They don't dry out at all. Ours lasted ages. And the top tier came to New York!
I think they look lovely with fresh flowers or fruit. If you don't like fondant then it's a great idea.
I love them! I really wanted one but my fiancé hated them
This is what I'm having in just under 4 weeks x
Just my opinion, but I think they look awful, they don't look finished no matter how many flowers you chuck at them, the fact that your asking shows that your unsure so go with something your sure on you don't want an added worry/stress to your endless list! If you loved naked cakes you would have one without asking 😊
We had one at the weekend - I love them as hate icing! The sponges were soaked in syrup so didn't dry out - still lovely now, nearly a week on and it was hot and the cake was out all day!
If you get a decent person who knows what they are doing they don't dry out at all. It was still fine a week down the line and we froze loads as a treat for when we got back from our honeymoon and it still tasted just as good. It went down a storm at our wedding as so many guests commented how much they don't like heavy icing! It looked beautiful too and fitted in with our overall theme!
When you say you hate fondant is it the look or the taste? I personally think it's too sweet but I love the way it looks and it's not difficult to pick off and just eat the cake. I always pick it off and have never found it to be a big issue. It also helps to keep the cake moist. I'm not really a fan of naked cakes as I think they look unfinished but then again it depends what type of wedding you are going for. If it's a rustic wedding then naked cakes obviously work well with that. Just go with what you and your partner want.
I like them, don't like icing and I want to enjoy my wedding cake as much as someone that would eat icing on it x
Our naked cake, tasted amazing
We had silver leaf on our cake. Initially wanted a naked cake as hate icing but this is the alternative we got given. We loved it x
I think they look amazing! Don't listen to those who don't like them. If you like them, then go for it. Anyway the look of the cake isn't the most important part. The taste is.
I think you have to think harder about how to decorate them but they work with a rustic theme x
They look nice :) if it's what you want, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks anyway
This is my wedding cake. I hate the look & taste of traditional cakes & Victoria sponge is my favourite so of course I went with a naked cake xx
I'm going to have one, I really hate icing so there doesn't seem much point paying out to have one beautifully decorated! I'm a decent baker so will be making mine myself x
If I was getting married again (no plans as yet ) this is what I'd go for
Mine was my dream ️
I love them but was told that they have problems staying put on warm days x
Totally read this wrong 😂😅 naked cakes fine, naked wedding not fine 😂
Hi I think they look great :)
I think they are beautiful especially with berries on them x
They are a pain to do as a cake decorator. But it's the brides choice. Xx
Absolutely loved ours!
Love them. I hate loads of icing so we are having a naked cake
I'm personally not a fan. To me they make lovely summer cakes but not wedding cakes. Not that I'd ever say no if someone offered me a slice :p
I think they are gorgeous! Xx
Personally I think they look messy & unfinished & wouldn't want one myself but they're clearly very popular going by the amount of times pictures appear in my newsfeed.
Loved mine ️️
Not my style but each to their own! Get a theme and go from there :-)
I'm having one as I hate fondant icing just Gona have flowers decorating it. I think it looks lovely tbh xx
We absolutely adored our cake, traditional wouldn't have worked in our scheme. ️
A friend of mine made a beautiful carrot cake... I'd definitely have that as a wedding cake...different sizes
We had a 'semi naked' cake, just a thin covering of buttercream to stop it from drying out. We don't like icing otherwise so this worked for us!
Not a fan tbh. But not my choice. I think a naked cake works well with rustic themes,and I've seen some beautiful examples
I love naked cakes and semi naked cakes!!...if they're done right they don't dry out at all...they can be decorated beautifully and done neat and classy xx
I'm having a naked cake with fresh fruit as me and my fiancé both hate icing. Having a different flavour for each tier too so there will be something for everyone :)
I think they look great if they fit with the theme of your wedding. I think a rustic/country feel wedding they look great but not so much in a posh Manor House or castle xx
Think it depends on the wedding x
Done to death
I had a naked cake and loved it
We had a mixed one and it was amazing, the finishing and display was beautiful
I think it depends on the style of wedding you have. Think they look gorgeous at rustic, vintage type weddings but wouldn't suit like a glitzy glam theme :) xxx
Take out the word 'cakes' and this sounds awesome
We had a naked cake which my friend made for me and it was beautiful. Xx
This was my naked cake it tasted gorgeous I picked this because I didn't like the "traditional" wedding cakes x
I personally don't like them however I think they could work if you have a rustic theme. Its not what everyone else thinks that matters. It is your day have what you want
Were having a semi naked one and it's PERFECT!!! Just got to make sure who Evers doing it does it right!!
Not overly keen, they are pretty, a bit samey, but I went for something very detailed with icing and non traditional so the complete opposite! Also if it is hot the butter icing in the middle can melt and make the cake lopsided
I had one it was beautiful I used it as my pudding at the wedding breakfast. It tasted gorgeous, three different flavored sponges and it all got eaten so no wastage x
Absolutely loved ours! I wasn't keen on them at first but fell in love with it! Plus we had cupcakes too! Best of both worlds x
I'm personally not a fan, but not for any good reason other than they're just not for me but have been to a wedding where they had one and it tasted fine, wasn't dry or anything. So if you like the way they look then go for it xx
This was our naked wedding cake made by my very talented sister, it was gorgeous.
Portia and Danny's was lovely, Pat ( Portia's Nana!)
As a former cake designer I can say that most are not done well and even if aesthetically pleasing, are often dry due to not being sealed and coated like normal cakes, as most cake shops make the cake days in advance
Omg love them deffo making one with my sister :) practice run went well
My mumma made one for a friends wedding. Everyone loved it
A few people tried to put me off a naked cake but then on the day they loved it. It's your day go with what you like. This was mine.
I work in a wedding/events venue here in Scotland & have seen LOADS in the past few months. They are honestly so beautiful...once dressed properly 😊 So simple, but perfect. X
yes i love your cakes..... i definitely wont a naked cake, i have see some great ones on pintrest. i love seeing the cakes you guys have put up gives me more of an idea,also glad to hear they DONT dry out :).
This is the one we're having although we're having it with 4 tiers and it's going to be lavender coloured with flowers to suit it
This is the latest one I've done I think if they fit in with your theme go for it,it's your wedding i also prefer semi naked cakes to naked cakes xx
I think that's what I am going to make for mine.. if you store correctly and make/buy it the morning of, or the night before you shouldn't have a problem. If you are worrying about drying out too much, maybe add like a lemon drizzle throughout? x
