Tired of searching for the perfect cake for your wedding? It’s one of the hardest decisions to make, flavour, colour, tiers… Perhaps you have a vintage theme? Maybe you would even like a healthier option for your wedding cake?
‘Naked cakes’ (an un-iced sponge cake) is the new perfect addition to a vintage themed wedding. Beautifully simple and delicious, these delectable cakes will be the “cherry on top” for your stylish wedding at The Careys Manor Hotel.
Skilled and passionate cakemaker Jill, who recently designed SenSpa’s beautiful 10th birthday cake, has had many requests for naked cakes and has 7 booked for next year!
“Naked cakes have become very popular in recent years, probably due to the rise in popularity of vintage themed weddings. Another reason for their popularity is a lot of people do not like eating icing as they either don’t like the taste or texture of it, or they are trying to cut down the amount of sugar they eat”
Sink your teeth into the soft sponge and let the flavour of fresh fruit and berries fill your mouth along with the scent of beautiful fresh flowers enhancing the romance of your special day. Light, airy and filled with your choice of butter cream, chocolate or even more fruit, these stunning cakes will create the most beautiful centerpiece for your Careys Manor wedding, posing proudly for all your guests.
Jill says these delicate cakes “have to be kept wrapped until the last minute to prevent them drying out to much, they need to be handled with care as they can’t be repaired if they get broken”
Careys Manor is the perfect setting for your vintage wedding with the heavenly Cedar Garden Pavilion creating the prettiest of backdrops to your wedding ceremony. Decorate your naked cake to match this quintessentially English Garden and add some soft lace and roses giving it a traditional yet rustic feel.
Jill says “I am always trying to think of new ways to present naked cakes, I find them an interesting challenge. They have to be baked to perfection and sliced evenly to look their best”
We adore vintage themed weddings at Careys Manor and our beautiful Manor House is the perfect place for traditional weddings. The Wooden beams and cosy feel of the Manor House really compliments the look of a naked caked with old fashioned pillars decorated with beautiful spring flowers.
Jill says “I love making naked cakes, as I think they have a simple elegance and they remind me of village fetes and cream teas. They can be made in a variety of flavours the most popular being, champagne and strawberry and bucks fizz and lemon.
