Fondant…buttercream…fondant…buttercream…How about neither?
This is a trend that I’ve been seeing more and more of lately, especially for our friends across the pond: a naked wedding cake. Well. Not truly nude. Normally, these lovely and simple cakes feature a filling of fruit preserve and/or frosting, and a generous dusting of powdered sugar. In this case, the finished cake also features fresh flowers and fruit.
Some might not like this minimalist approach. But I say that, where you have a fantastic baker, capable of turning out flawless, moist, delicious, and interesting cake – why not? Especially in the summer, when we tend to lighten up on desserts a bit, this would be a delicious and appropriate direction to take. It would be aMAzing served with a simple fruit sorbet, for instance. And depending on the fruit in season at the time, you could have a lot of fun with garnishes, too. I’m thinking cherries and apricots…
By the, how much do you LOVE the tent and big green bubble lanterns and chandeliers?
