Minimal Summer Cake

Citrus Naked Cake

It felt so refreshing to make this minimal naked cake, especially for a July wedding. For this cake, I kept it partially naked, exposing the slightest bit of cake underneath the vanilla buttercream. Kumquats and apricot slices were added, along with that miniature yellow plum I included on top (it’s coloring was too perfect to not include!). The minimalist approach to the decor really let the cake shine, which I absolutely loved. Thought I’d share some photos, in case anyone was searching for some wedding cake inspiration.

    Hi I love this cake. Did you just put icing sugar on top or is it a very think layer of buttercream?
