Naked and semi-naked cakes

If you are looking for a modern or rustic alternative to a traditional iced wedding cake, why not choose a naked or semi-naked cake? Your wedding cake is the crowning glory of the best day of your life, and at Cakes by Robin we love that our naked cakes make a gorgeous centrepiece to complement the love, drama and beauty bound up in your special day. Beautifully simple, and simply beautiful, a naked or semi-naked wedding cake is the perfect romantic finishing touch to any wedding day.

If you’re not a fan of the traditional icing that typically covers most wedding cakes, a naked, or semi-naked cake is just as delicious as it is visually striking. Naked and semi-naked cakes are on trend and it’s not hard to see why. Quite simply, they look fabulous. Adorned with flowers and fruit, naked cakes look surprisingly elegant. They have a certain rustic appeal and are absolutely perfect for any vintage-themed wedding.


There is something incredibly elegant about a naked cake. Traditionally iced wedding cakes aren’t to everyone’s taste. Old fashioned fruit cakes with thick hard icing can look magnificent, but many guests shy away from the sugar overload. Unfrosted wedding cakes, on the other hand, are becoming surprisingly popular and make a refreshing change from the traditional. We think naked and semi-naked cakes are a delightful alternative. They not only look pretty, they’re generally more popular for eating too.

At Cakes by Robin we get really excited about making naked and semi-naked cakes, because they showcase our delicious cakes and fillings so beautifully. We are pretty good at making them look equally as glamourous as traditional cakes too.


If you’re looking for a wedding cake to complement a rustic and vintage vibe, a naked cake is the perfect choice. Choose decorations to match the bridal bouquet, to complement table decorations, or simply pretty up with beautiful berries and fruits.

Semi-naked cakes are the perfect alternative between naked and traditionally iced wedding cakes. With a semi-naked cake, icing is scraped thinly around the outside of the cake layers and over the top. This technique creates an interesting texture, looks super stylish and brings a more contemporary feel to the rustic look of a completely naked cake.


For custom made nude wedding cakes, or semi-naked wedding cakes, we offer a choice of Flavours and Fillings including Vanilla Victoria, Chocolate Fudge, Lemon Drizzle, Carrot, Marble, Coffee & Walnut and Red Velvet. The best flavour is the one that you love the most!

Cakes by Robin use the finest and freshest ingredients and can cater for all dietary needs, including Gluten Free naked wedding cakes, so there’s no need to worry about anyone feeling left out on account of a food allergy or sensitivity.

Your naked cake can be tiered or made in individual layers, and topped with fresh fruit, flowers or both for a stunning rustic wedding cake design. Anything goes with these scrumptious, buttercream oozing tiers of deliciousness – so get in touch to discuss how you would like yours to be!


As it’s generally the thick icing that keeps a wedding cake fresh, naked and semi-naked cakes need to be ordered, baked and delivered to a precise timeline. Cakes are baked the day before the wedding to ensure you get a wedding cake that is fresh and delicious. We have a few tricks up our sleeves to make your cake as tasty and fresh as is possible on the big day, so you don’t have to worry.

We can deliver your cake anywhere in London, or you can collect from our Cakes Parlour in Wimbledon, South West London.


We have created a vast range of wedding cake designs for venues all over London including Claridges, The Mandarin Oriental, The Ritz, The Bingham, The Hurlingham Club, The Four Seasons, Kew Gardens and many other spectacular London venues.

We ordered a cake through Cakes by Robin. We gave them a photograph for reference and they somehow made it look even better than we could have imagined. So, so impressed. I couldn’t recommend them more!
