Naked Wedding Cakes Bare It All For the Summer.
Gone are the days when hot Summer weather makes icing drip down your wedding cake! Naked cakes — the trendy cakes that are mostly unfrosted — are great for warmer outdoor weddings and add a simple, elegant style to any sweet spread. By layering the cake and using a minimal amount of frosting, mainly to stick layers together or add a decorative touch, these wedding desserts offer a light sweetness in each bite. If you think that less icing means your cake will lack flair, then add fruity or flowery touches to accent the frosting and flavor. Check out these naked cakes below for inspiration!

A cupcake for my baby, and one more for the road.

Lushybakingfilter: why bother with that whole pesky drinking thing when you can try your favorite cocktail in dessert form? Mojitos, margaritas, screwdrivers, martinis, black russians, daiquiris, gin & tonics, piña coladas, mai tais and mint juleps. Mmmm.

If you close your eyes, it's delicious

Who wants the slice with the bloody lung? How to make a delicious cake that looks like the exposed human thoratic cavity, complete with a ribcage of white chocolate and organs that each secrete a different fruit-flavored sauce. (MNBSFW due to how unbelievably real the thing looks.)
