Naked Cakes & What Not To Say To Your Baker

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!
