Naked Cake


It’s A Naked Cake!

One of the newest trends in cake decorating is the naked cake. The simplicity of seeing the layers of cake with layers of filling can be quite pretty and stunning. How perfect would it not be as a valentine’s dessert.

Make your favorite cake recipe and fill with whatever you like.

For this naked cake I used vanilla cake filled with whipped cream and strawberries. I topped off the cake with some more berries and a generous dusting of powdered sugar.

Berries are not the only thing you can decorate the cake with, fresh organic flowers would be beautiful on top as well!

    This is beautiful. You did such a nice job!
    I made a Neapolitan naked cake once, but it wasn’t as lovely as yours.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous!!! I absolutely LOVE to cake decorate, so going to have to try this simplistic design…Fabulous!!!!

  4. Ooh, very pretty! Makes me think of winter, but I bet it’d be good regardless of the season.

    That is beautiful! I love this idea!

  6. I don’t always like icing so this would be awesome. It is really pretty too.

  7. I would love this. hubby often makes fun of me for scraping most of the icing off a cake… he thinks the icing is the best part.

  8. I so love it NOT over the top with icing and decorations PERFECT …Looks gorgeous

    This is beautiful in it’s own right. I am not a huge fan of icing, I actually usually tend to scrape it off, so this is perfect. The addition of the berries with the powdered sugar dusting makes it quite classy!

    I love this idea. This is more my “father’s day” route than a typical icing cake. She likes his fruit and sweet. It would be great if I could find cherries and maybe integrate brandy.

    I love the idea of the naked cake! It would make eating cake make me feel a little less guilty, without the icing!
