Trend Alert: Translucent Cakes!

If you attended a wedding last year, you probably ate a slice of a trendy, naked cake! Naked cakes skip the fondant and outer icing all together. Despite the lack of decor, they were a huge hit. Well, translucent cakes are the next big thing in wedding cake design! According to The Knot‘s 2017 Wedding Trends, translucent cakes are the cake of the future! Basically, it’s similar to a naked cake but with a thin layer of icing. Think: sweet, but not too sweet! Yum!
