We Love Naked Layer Wedding Cakes! 20 Awesome Recipes & More!

Rosemary Lavender Cake
Naked cakes are both an awesome plan for a D.I.Y. wedding with a bride who hasn't baked much & a healthier option for your guests - plus they're just straight-up gorgeous.

We love how there's no need to deal with fondant or trying to get the icing perfect, & how you can use frosting to hide uneven cake layers if you're a little clumsy like me, so we gathered these 20 awesome naked (or almost naked!) wedding cake recipes for you.

Before you begin you'll want to keep these three tips in mind.

1. Choose a stable type of cake & filling - think ganache or buttercream frosting & sturdy mud, pound, or butter cake.

2. Prepare your cake pans properly, generously greasing & flouring it before adding the batter. Doing so will make your life a lot easier later. :)

3. Create a timeline. Most cakes will stay fresh wrapped in a double layer of plastic wrap in the fridge for about 5 days, and you'll assemble & frost it the day it's served. If you're worried about the exposed parts of your naked cake drying out faster, you can brush the layers with simple syrup.

And so you can get inspired here are twenty delicious recipes for naked layer cakes, complete with beautiful photographs like the Rosemary Lavender Cake featured above via Sprinkles for Breakfast.
