This space is in dire need of some pictures. Here are some designs that I quite like; apparently the naked cake design is on trend right now, but a level of skill is required to achieve the desired effect. Some of the designs look as if 1) the chef started off with the intention of fully coating the cake, but ran out of cream towards the end; or 2) the chef forgot to prepare the cream coating, and decided to just leave the layers bare (here I’m just using layman terms; obviously I do not bake).
The classic fully coated cake is fine too I guess. I’m not particular. But flowers are a must(!). And pearl like beadings on the sides are bad. Also is a cake topper necessary? Something like “Love” or “Happily Ever After” would be too corny though.
