TREND FIND: NAKED CAKE

When we see a trend we like, we obsess over it. Can you relate? Right now, we're heavy into the naked cake trend.

Not as scandalous as it sounds, the naked cake is just a cake without icing to cover up the sides. Don't worry, there's still icing, it's used between layers and, probably because there isn't quite as much as a traditional cake, we're seeing naked cakes really experiment with unique icing flavors. Think: spice cake with coffee cardamom icing or orange almond cake with orange buttercream frosting. Are you drooling yet? Wait until you see the photos! 

When we obsess over something, we dedicate a Pinterest board to it, so be sure you check out our Pinterest with dozens more ideas for beautiful naked cakes. Here are a few of our favorites:
