Time to get Naked...

Naked cakes have been around for a few years now, and the trend is going nowhere. 

They're a popular choice for wedding cakes, as they're generally cheaper than fondant-covered cakes (depending what goes on them of course!) and they look stunning, whether adorned with mountains of fruit, flowers, macarons and drizzles, or left plain and simple.

Naked cakes are so easy to adapt to your colour and flower themes, and if you're using fruit as decoration, it's beautifully simple to represent the current season. 

In short, there's a naked cake for everyone, and the combinations are endless.

Here's my latest (almost) naked cake - vanilla sponge masked in a thin layer of vanilla buttercream and decorated with bright pink roses, rose leaves and fresh seasonal fruit (figs, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, physalis).

Valentines Mansion Wedding Fair

Sunday was Caked's very first wedding fair! The venue was the beautiful Valentines Mansion & Gardens in Ilford, Essex - a stunning venue for a wedding.

After weeks of hard work designing new cakes, making the cakes, and planning my stand, finally came the time to pack up my little car and head off to Essex with my good friend Lisa who was kindly helping me out for the day. Setting up my stand was so much fun, and exciting to see it finally come to life.

Valentines Wedding Fair - Stand

The best part of the day was meeting the other wedding suppliers exhibiting at the fair and of course, meeting all the lovely couples planning their weddings. The standout cake was definitely the naked cake decorated with fresh roses and seasonal fruit - people are absolutely loving naked cakes at the moment and it looks like this will continue into next year as I've already had plenty of enquiries requesting them. 

All in all, a great day, and I'm already looking forward to taking Caked to more wedding fairs soon. Stay tuned for more info!
