Small Yet Whimsical Wedding Cake Ideas 

Rustic Semi-Naked & Naked Cakes

Easily recognized by the absence of or minimal frosting, rustic naked cakes are one of the most popular choices for wedding cakes. They're especially great if you're a couple that does not enjoy a lot of frosting over the cakes but prefers just the right amount. Added to these small rustic cakes are flowers and other accessories made out of edible material like fondant, sugar or modelling chocolate. Here are a few that we spotted this season and absolutely love!
