    A timeless silver stand elevates any cake’s overall style, especially when it’s reflecting pops of color from pastel pink and magenta roses, ranunculus and dahlias. A few bright blooms artfully arranged around the base and tucked between tiers adds to the whimsical, romantic look.

  2. Sharp Contrast

    The contrast between a dark chocolate cake and stark white icing is stunning to say the least. Finish the look with some strategically placed vibrant blooms and simple garland around the base for a totally elegant look.

    This sweet cake, decked out with wedges of fresh fruit, handfuls of grapes, hot pink alstroemeria and a fun cake topper, proves that you don’t needs lots of tall tiers to make an impact.

  5. Double Take

    Having multiple cakes on a dessert table is becoming more and more of a trend and offers a mix of flavors, fillings, and even designs—think a combo of traditional frosting-covered cakes and naked cakes. In other words, if you can’t settle on one cake, get two! (Or three!)

  6. Playful Flavors

    Since the cake layers are completely exposed, any fillings in the cake batter will show through on display—hence, this delightful presentation of rainbow sprinkles. If you’re looking for an alternative to a traditional wedding cake, this is definitely a front-runner.

  7. Berry Pretty

    Fresh berries are to naked cakes what gum paste flowers are to buttercream-covered tiers—especially in the case of this fruity-flavored filling. We love how the strawberries, raspberries and blueberries enhance the natural-looking aesthetic.

    This is one clean-cut confection. The modern design, smooth edges and coordinated colors look so expertly crafted there’s no need to garnish with any blooms or berries.

    Naturally, the stacked layers of cake and frosting create beautiful horizontal lines, but we love the look of contrasting drips of caramel or chocolate ganache for some subtle flare—and a touch more flavor!

    A slim tower of tall tiers outfitted with a romantic cascade of seeded eucalyptus and Juliet garden roses is enough to make anyone think twice about cutting into this beautiful cake (but we suggest you do!).
