At Junebug, we can’t help ourselves when something sweet and beautiful crosses our screens. Wedding cakes come in many shapes and sizes, but our favorite cake trend of the season is the naked cake. Naked cakes are stripped down versions of traditionally ornate wedding cakes, exposing the cake beneath the outer layers of icing. Though this style of cake is minimalist, it’s far from boring. Naked cakes can be made with varying shades of cake mix, taking on a one-of-a-kind marble effect, or can use shades of icing that complement the wedding color palette for a cohesive look. The deconstructed layers are perfect for a rustic wedding with simple and pared down elements.
Here are a few of our favorite naked cakes from recent Junebug real weddings.
