"naked" wedding cake - no icing - Page 2

post #16 of 38

How about brushing the cake with apricot jam? That'll help it stay moist,,...and sorry I have problems with pricing myself so I hesitate to make any suggestions about it.

I'm amazed by the amount of people who think the cake will go stale.  My mother makes cakes all the time with just a little bit of powdered sugar on them.  Keeps them in a glass cake stand on the counter.  Cake is good for a few days....if it lasts that long:)

The glass dome at your mom's house IS covering the cake, similar to what icing or saran wrap would be doing.  Any cake left sitting out for several hours is going to be crustier (some types of cakes more/faster than others) than fresh cake or cake that has been covered.

I made a cake like this.. it's in my photo gallery. I just brushed some simple syrup on the outside a few times and it never got stale or hard. And we charged the base price also. =)

The reason I would still charge my base price is because I don't want to become the cheap cake with no icing on it lady, once word gets around you can get a naked cake for hardly nothing. And, I need to make a certain amount of money each time I turn my oven on, to keep up with the bills.

I'm sorry to digress and be so obsessed with peoples photos today but they are just too funny!  Especially since the one bird looks so quizzical.

I love the simplistic look to this cake. Even though it looks simplistic to make it look good naked will be a task so please make sure you charge atleast base. To make the icing perfect, the torting like K8 said, everything about this cake looks simple but a person off the street could not create that look easily... I think this will be a beautiful cake, please post pics when you do get it done.

Actually I think that the beauty of this cake is that it's NOT perfect. The torted layers are not done with an agbay, they are not perfectly aligned, the frosting has different thicknesses, the top bit of the middle tier looks a bit "overdone"...but I'd still charge my standard rate, no discount just because someone doesn't like icing on the outside.

These cakes are becoming popular, I think Momofuku Milk Bar sort of started it.
