Don’t go in ‘asking for a naked cake’ or your baker might think you are asking for something suggestive! I learned my lesson when I went into one of my favourite bakeries and decided to strike a conversation with the bake shop owner! At first I told him I’m interested in naked cakes and enquired if they make them for weddings. Well the bake shop owner proceeded to tell me that naked cakes are ‘offensive’, and it’s a family oriented business. I thought he meant they were plain, and not very elegant and that’s why they were offensive- but later I realized he thought I was adamant on ordering a penis cake. Funny moments when you have a conversation with someone and you both are thinking of two very different things! Thanks a lot Cake Boss for teaching me this term ‘Naked Cakes’, and actually using it thinking it’s what everyone knows them for!
Currently there’s three styles of Wedding cakes I’m considering, although the naked cake is not ‘traditional’ and not as over the top as some other cakes. I do know that I’m not a big fan of fondant..as it’s too sweet!
What are your thoughts? There’s still a few more cake ideas I’m considering…and nothings final plus my baker told me that new styles come out for cakes often- just like fashion collections! Who knows what I’ll go with in the end, but stay tuned for the rest of the cake posts I’m obsessing over right now.
