Tasting and designing your wedding cake is an experience Brides dream about. Lately, we have seen an increase in the amount of people opting for an unfrosted, or ‘naked,’ wedding cake. Instead of decorating the wedding cake by completely covering it in buttercream or fondant, couples are asking to leave the sides of the cake exposed. Not only does this create a casual and unique cake (an excellent rustic wedding idea), but it is a budget-friendly option as well. We especially love how brides have been embellishing these naked cakes. Adding flowers, greenery, and a cake topper are just some of the ways to make a rustic, unfrosted wedding cake shine.

One of the biggest modern wedding trends in color is pairing yellow with gray. The color combination is extremely versatile and perfectly adaptable for a celebration in any of the 4 seasons. Having a Spring wedding? Stick to a pastel yellow and a lighter gray. Meanwhile, a Summer wedding is the perfect time to utilize a bright, bold yellow with a medium gray. We didn’t forget about Fall and Winter! During these seasons, opt for more of a mustard yellow as well as a dark gray. These warm, intense colors definitely compliment the cooler seasons.
Suggested Ink Pairings (from TGK): Pewter, Sunshine, and Mustard (for Fall + Winter)
