Instead of frosting a wedding cake with layers of fondant or buttercream, many bakers are increasing the filling between tiers and leaving the layers exposed. This naked look has quickly become popular with its refined style and completely elevated look.

With just as many ways to customize these cakes as their fully-frosted counterparts, you’ll be able to work with your baker to achieve a custom look that reflects your wedding’s style. This three-tier mille-crepe cake by Lady M Confections was decorated with bright pink and purple flowers, coordinating with the wedding’s fun and whimsical feel.
