Fondant haters, lazy bakers and time-poor hosts rejoice! These naked cakes are achievable, budget friendly and swoon-worthy-and they provide an ideal opportunity to experiment with and display your individual creativity! Beautiful, rustic and organic in form, naked cakes are always tiered, with filling and frosting between layers but never on the outside--thus "naked."
Within these pages you will find information on choosing a style of cake; how to make sweet fillings, butters and frostings as well as syrups; recipes for over a dozen base cakes including gluten-free and flourless options; a definitive listing of flavor profiles and combinations; beautiful cake toppers; and over a dozen assembled cakes for different occasions.
Beautifully styled spreads provide inspiration for special occasions such as a baby shower, a simple wedding, a fiesta or a dessert party –all with stunning naked cakes as the centerpiece, of course! Don’t miss the special section on how to decorate your cakes with edible fresh and sugared flowers and fruits.
