There are two types of people in the world; people who love frosting, and people who don’t! Are you a big frosting fan, or are you in love with naked and nearly naked cake creations?

Which side of the frosting fight are you on?

    If I could put no frosting on the cake at all, I would be happy, so naked all the way. (I hate frosting)

    Somewhere in between. I love the look of naked cake, but I would want some more frosting than that. The second one has too much frosting. I want something in between.

    I can't imagine having a cake without frosting though I know my mom would love it.

    Frosted. I'm a fan of the look of the naked cake, but my FH loves frosting!

    I like the naket look if it is combined with some fruits, otherwise I like the frosting better!

    Have to have frosting! The more frosting the better in my opinion.

    If the frosting is good, frosting. If it's greasy overly sweet frosting then I'd rather have naked cake. Haha. Our cake had frosting though.

    Not a fan of a lot of frosting, so I tend to like the naked look more. That being said, I think we’re going to do something in between (no cake showing, but not gobs of buttercream either).

    Naked cheesecakes! Putting our own toppings on will be the fun part!
