The naked cake trend has been hot on the list of wedding trends for a while now. By forgoing frosting, you can showcase the flavors of the doughy, moist cake underneath. Add some sprigs, flowers and a cake topper, and you have a rustic-looking yet super elegant creation that will set the tone for your entire wedding. (Don’t worry, frosting lovers, there’s still frosting in between the layers!) If you’re planning a fall wedding, this unique wedding cake trend can easily be incorporated into your color and design scheme. Scroll on for 15 of our favorite autumn-approps naked cakes and get ready to start drooling with envy.


1. Multi-Tonal: Yes, you CAN incorporate an eclectic-looking color scheme in your naked cake. You just have to use different flavors of the cake itself. Bonus points for a colorful array of fresh fruit and flowers. (via Babb Photography)


2. A Bountiful Harvest: Berries and orange- and red-hued flowers grace this elegant naked cake inspired by fall. A little caramel coating over top gives it a bit of shine (and a sweet flavor too!). (via The Knot)


3. Fall Neutrals: Just because you’re getting married during the fall season doesn’t necessarily mean you have to go deep with your color scheme. This naked cake showcases the beautiful olive branch, as well as a neutral palette that looks classy all year round. (via Project Wedding)


4. Naked Red Velvet: On the other hand, maybe you DO want a gorgeous color palette of deep reds and purples. This naked look is made with red velvet cake and surrounded by pears, figs and cherries, which make for a perfect autumn display. (via Weddingomania)


5. A Bright Autumn Day: Keep your color palette on the lighter side with this fall wedding cake. Instead of deep hues, this palette takes inspiration from bright sunny days and the golden leaves of early fall. (via Tulle and Chantilly)


6. Standing Tall: Go big or go home, baby! This cake has not one, not two, but TWELVE layers bound together with both buttercream and chocolate ganache. (via The I Do Moment)


7. Herbs and Ombre: Sprigs of fresh rosemary and lavender line this gorgeous ombre-inspired wedding cake. If you thought you needed frosting to create an ombre effect, think again. (via My Wedding)


8. Dark Chocolate: This gorgeous combination features rich melted chocolate oozing down the size of a naked cake, surrounded by fresh figs and blueberries. We LOVE how this cake is only semi-naked; it definitely gives a new angle to this wedding cake trend. (via Chic Vintage Brides)


9. Sagittarius Season: Is your wedding taking place in that spot somewhere in between fall and winter (late November through mid-December)? Play off the traits of Sagittarius season, choosing bright, optimistic orange roses and playful white feathers. Pretty frosted ferns are also super approps for the late fall/early winter season.
