NAKED WEDDING CAKE – EASY PEASY!
I made my own, small and very simple, naked wedding cake for my July 19th wedding!
…Aaaand with some hindsight, a decision I would not make again so easily. Future brides take note – BAD IDEA! Step away from the cake! Just because you are a baker (I have heard the word control freak being thrown around here) does not necessarily mean you have to be in charge of everything. I believe delegate is the word I’m looking for here?
Since this was a DIY wedding, I was already super-duper stressed out the day before the wedding (I hadn’t even written my vows by then to be completely honest). I also had a full on Swedish cake, pastry and cookie buffet lined up for our guests, so in the end I decided not to make a big fuss about the cake – I decided to go for a simple dark chocolate sponge, peanut butter buttercream, dark chocolate ganache and chopped Snickers bars and a simple deco of fresh strawberries and fresh flowers – easy peasy!
Just a few panic attacks, tears and swear words along the way. You know, no biggie.
