Pros and Cons of a Naked Wedding Cake

Annie and Julius' stunning botanical inspired wedding by Sara and Rocky | www.onefabday.com Naked cakes came into the wedding scene and has seemed to steal the show of wedding cakes. They are defiantly trendy and despite their nakedness there is a lot of room for creativity. BUT, are they "practically perfect in every way?" Not necessarily. On Wedding Bee they asked on their board, "Would you go with a Naked Wedding Cake?" and while the votes are on a smaller scale, it is still a good place to start. 23% of voters answered no, citing that they don't like the way the naked cake looks and 5% said no because it wasn't traditional enough. Then, 72% said they LOVED the idea. So when it comes to the appearance of naked cakes, most people seem to like the idea and if that is all you are concerned about, you shouldn't really be concerned about what other people think. Your wedding is about your love and what you believe is beautiful. Here are some other things to consider about the pro's and con's of a naked wedding cake:

1 Non-traditional take on a a Wedding Cake (PRO and CON)

sehr schön mit Früchten beladen aber nur eine Sahneschicht macht die Torte auf dem Teller etwas uninteressant. Depending on your goals or preference, this could be a pro or a con. We here at wedding collectibles lean toward the pro! Wedding traditions are the best, but it is always fun to take a traditional idea and give it a twist.

2 Opportunity for a unique look (PRO)

naked cake with strawberry pink buttercream filling! This is defiantly a pro. Even though naked cakes didn't show up just yesterday, they are still fairly new and their possibilities haven't even come close to reaching their limitations. Naked cakes might work better with some wedding themes over others, but having this as an option really gives you the opportunity to create a wedding cake unique to your vision.

3 Dry Out Easily (CON)

Stunning naked wedding cake with organic edible flowers from http://maddocksfarmorganics.co.uk. Cake made by http://www.theorganicweddingcakecompany.com. Photography by Ria Beth Photography. Wedding of the lovely Abiee and Tom Thank you all! Here is a big con. Without the frosting, the naked wedding cake will very likely dry out by the time it is time to eat it. This is where it is important to have a baker that knows how to handle naked cakes and what can be done to prevent this. Now, if you don't really care if the cake is dried out, then I guess this con doesn't really matter. Your wedding guests may not be very happy about it though!

4 Can be less stable (CON)

Naked Wedding Cake - set to be a huge trend for Weddings this year! Again, the frosting plays a role here! Without it you are likely to get crumbs or more falling a part. If you really want a naked cake, make sure to shop around and talk to multiple bakeries that can prevent this common problem!

5 Not at much/ No frosting (CON or PRO)

From classic white cakes, trendy colourful confections, rustic naked cakes to more creative and modern designs, here our our favourite wedding cake trends... Now, if you HATE frosting this is a pro, but if you are a normal human being, then this is definitely another con. Some may even say that a cake without frosting isn't even a cake at all! This con may be fixed by having other deserts alongside your wedding cake that have a little more going on for taste.

A Guide to Cake Size

Cake Infographic A Guide to Cake Size: Infographics and other helpful hints This wedding infographic is extraordinarily helpful as you plan one of your center stage details for your wedding. Here's why: The typical sizes of a wedding cake range from as large a base as 14 inches in diameter to as small as 4 inches in diameter. As you decide on a wedding cake topper (or the lack of one) you need to keep in mind the size of your top tier. In other words, you will want to keep the size of your wedding cake topper proportionate to your tier size and the over all height of your cake.

Cake topper size Aside from the aesthetics, another very important detail is the serving size. Ask yourself these questions three:

  • How many guests will you have?
  • Are you serving other deserts?
  • Will you serve a sheet cake version of your cake and get a smaller "display" size?"
It is a matter of balancing how much cake you want to serve, how much cake will be eaten, and how you want your cake to look. If you have always dreamed of a 6 layer cake, you may not need to serve any other deserts. Also, keep in mind if you are going to keep the tradition of saving the top tier for your 1 year anniversary, as this will decrease the serving size of your cake. A lot of couples will get a simple and small two tier cake that's main purpose is to keep traditions: cutting the cake and saving the cake top. Remember, small sizes will also often mean smaller prices. So if you are on a budget, you may want to consider just getting a small cake with sheet cake to serve or other deserts.

How to Develop a Wedding Theme or Style

How to Develop a Wedding Theme or Style

It may seem kind of self serving to say, but wedding accessories are very important when it comes to fully developing your wedding theme or style. If all of your accessories are a mish-mash of what you borrowed from other people, your wedding may begin to look a little mish-mashed. Of course, if you are looking to create a more eclectic style, then by all means, go for it; it is a great way to save money. Otherwise, you are going to want your wedding accessories to be hand picked, just for you and your wedding dream.  When developing your wedding theme and style, there are four areas of your wedding that your accessories are essential: The bride, the ceremony, the table centerpieces, and the cake. Whether you are on a budget or not, these or the four sections of your wedding that you want to pay extra attention to.
  1. The Bride  1920s Inspired Knoxville Wedding Let's face it. When people go to a wedding the first thing they want to look at is the bride. Not to objectify her, but she is the center-stone to the whole event. The bride and her dress. Your choice of wedding dress will heavily influence the tone of the wedding. For example, if you choose to wear a ballroom gown, but are having a bohemian theme, the two styles will clash. Then, you have to decide on how to do your hair and what bridal accessories to wear. These accessories will make or break your wedding look.
  2. The Ceremony  1920s Inspired Knoxville Wedding There are of course a lot of different aspects of the wedding ceremony that are going to affect your wedding theme or style. The location is of course key, but it is often what you do with that location that is going to really establish you in your ceremony. And really, there are a lot more wedding accessories that go into the wedding ceremony than many people realize, many of which depend on what traditions you are upholding. For example, you may need to decide on a unity candle, SAND JAR, flower baskets, or a  ring pillow.
  3. Reception Centerpieces  1920s Inspired Knoxville Wedding In terms of reception decor, the centerpieces are going to be HUGE in establishing your theme or style. Taking the 1920's Inspired wedding that is featured on the Ruffled blog as an example, this bride's centerpiece is very simple, but the long stemmed vases and the mod styled center mat evoke that 1920's feel more than if she had just a regular rounded vase and a plain white table clothe. The center mat is probably what gives the 1920's vibe the most and is even reminiscent of the great american novel based in the 20's, The Great Gatsby. So, as you prioritize your reception decoration budget, be sure to pay attention to your centerpieces with what flowers, vases, candles, table numbers, place settings, and any other unique ornaments you wish to use.
  4. The Cake Vintage Romance Sonoma Wedding The cake stands as one of the focal points of pretty much any reception and you are adhering to the tradition of cutting the cake, then you know it will end up at center stage, making the cake's design and accessories very important. Cake accessories that you will be choosing from will mainly be cake toppers, but may also include flowers. Wedding cake toppers are a great opportunity to establish your wedding theme, and as the cute bunny toppers in the photo above demonstrate, do not need to be completely traditional. Really, there are cake toppers made to work with almost any wedding theme and style.The wedding cake topper you choose is often reflective of your couple personality too and is one of the few wedding decorations that not only symbolize your love, but can also last beyond the wedding as a keepsake.

How to Tell if Your Porcelain Cake Topper is Good Quality

What are some ways to tell if you are buying a good quality porcelain cake topper?
High Quality Porcelain

First off, porcelain is porcelain. There isn't good or bad; just different kinds. When it comes to cake toppers, what you are going to want to look for is how the figurine is made.
  1. Is it Porcelain?: First, you are going to want to check the material the cake topper you are buying is made out of. This will often be in the item description. Some of the most popular materials cake toppers are made of are porcelain, resin, & acrylic.
  2. Look at the hands and ears: Porcelain cake toppers are made from molds. After being used for a long time, molds lose their ability to produce detailed figurines. If the hands and ears look more like blobs or you can't distinguish fingers or the curve of the ear, it means the manufacturer has been using a mold for too long.
  3. The Paint Job: If a maker is not paying attention to the detail, there may be some mess ups with the paint. It would be more obvious with ethnic figurines, but a lower quality porcelain topper may have the paint intended for the skin, on the white wedding dress. This, of course, should not be happening!
  4. It's in the details!!: Some cake toppers are going to beCrystal Details  better than others based solely on the little details. Take the one featured above; part of what makes it so great is the Swarovski crystal that is used as hair accessories and on the wedding band. If a figurine is offering special ornamental motifs like this, you are looking at a porcelain cake topper of higher quality.
  5. Honestly, you are going to get what you pay for: Unless there is an amazing sale, it is likely that the price of the porcelain cake topper is going to reflect the quality of time and attention that is given to that piece. So if you are spending $50 on a cake topper it is going to be worth that $50, just like if you are paying $100 or if you are paying $20.
If you are shopping online, you are not going to be able to tell what the quality of your individual topper is. Keep in mind that the cake toppers featured in the photos are from the very first time the mold is used, and represent the maker's best work. Often, return policies on wedding accessories can be strict, so you are going to want to pay attention to your shop's return policy. At Wedding Collectibles, we sell from a wide range of wedding cake toppers from different manufactures, and do our best to provide you with the best cake toppers, but also provide options to some that may have more affordable prices. If you have your eye on one of the cake toppers we sell, take a look at our return policy by following the link here.

If you have any further questions of how to judge if your cake topper is of high quality, feel free to ask below or give us a call!
