Modern wedding cakes – The Naked Cake

While the practice of serving cake at your wedding is steeped in tradition, I’m loving some of the trends in modern wedding cakes.  I recently photographed “a naked cake” or an exposed layer cake, and I’m in love.  Not sure what I mean?  Martha Stewart Weddings explains it for us.

Technically, this cake was iced in a “barely there” fashion and adorned with succulent blooms.  Would you have a naked cake at your wedding?

Here’s a little piece of wedding cake trivia.  Did you know that superstition holds that if single women sleep with the slice under their pillow that night, they’ll dream of their own weddings (via The Knot).
