Semi-naked Cake

Daily Top 3 - Feb 03, 2015

My version of a semi-naked cake with gumpaste succulents. Buttermilk cake with vanilla bean buttercream – it was my first semi-naked cake. I charged the same as I would for a regular buttercream cake and am glad I did. It took a lot longer to get straight sides and edges than it usually takes me because I had to make sure some of the cake was left showing. The extra time off-set the smaller batch of buttercream! I love the sculptural feeling of this cake and succulents are now my favorite gumpaste “flower.” It was for an elegant baby shower but I could see this design in a rustic wedding setting also! Thank you for looking! <3 Shannon

Supplies: buttercream gumpaste

Great cake! And what a valuable insight into the making of one of these beauties. My cakes never look so perfectly straight when they bake so I’ve yet to try putting them all on show like this!
