Gorgeous Naked Cakes: Perfect for a Birthday Party or Baby Shower

Three words: I love cake. Vanilla, chocolate, frosting, or no frosting, I’ll take it all. However, naked cakes have been taking over lately. Naked cakes are unfrosted cakes and usually have lots of floral toppers. They are super simple, but so cute and chic! They make the perfect dessert for a birthday celebration or baby shower, and an easy baking project.

I’ve rounded up my favorite naked cakes to get your creative juices flowing:

I love this rustic dessert display setup. This is the perfect picture to distinguish a naked cake vs. a frosted cake. The fig decor toppers definitely make the cakes more elegant.

This dessert table is from an ombre pink baby shower. I love how the cake is not only five layers, but two tiered as well!

Even with a “messier” look, these naked cakes are so pretty. All of your layers don’t have to be even! The yellow accent flowers definitely add the perfect pop of color.
