An easy way to give your wedding cake a fresh and fabulous look is to ditch the traditional round tiers and think outside the box (literally), going for square tiers instead!

Naked weddings cakes from MM Cookies, Limerick


The naked cake, also known as the ‘dirty-iced’ cake (if you can get past the name), is a big wedding cake trend we’re seeing this year! This cake normally consists of a light crumb coating and can be described as ‘half-dressed’, with a thin layer of icing that traps in all the cake crumbs. It’s a little more on the bare side, but less is more these days. Top with a little floral details or cake topper will make this cake even more trendy!
