Trend Watch: Naked Cakes


“Naked cakes” are the pastry version of #wokeuplikethis. They are a non-fussy (and on-trend) alternative to inch-deep layers of fondant and buttercream frosting.

This cake style is best served with contrasting layers—like red velvet cake and cream cheese filling or with alternating tiers of chocolate and vanilla or lemon—and au naturel embellishments like fresh berries or flowers. #flawless.
