    I think they're underrated. They're so pretty. You can decorate the cake however you want and it won't matter there wasn't frosting

    Overrated. They may look nice, but I like icing and not dry cake.

    Underrated. I鈥檓 not a frosting person and I feel like cakes with thick frosting or fondant just take away from the true flavor of a cake. If the cake is baked right and the flavor is amazing, then you won鈥檛 need frosting.

    Overrated. I think it is a trend that will eventually phase out.

    Underrated for sure! Totally agree with you. We鈥檙e having a semi-naked cake as well and all our samples were moist and delicious as well. We don鈥檛 care for a lot of frosting and usually eat only the cake leaving most of the frosting behind so it only makes sense that our wedding cake represent us and what we like.

    Indifferent. I love icing, so I wouldn't go this direction, but they are very pretty!

    Overrated. I don't like how they look and I would imagine they'd be on the dry side. I would rather choose a different icing than do a naked cake.

    I love how they look, but wonder if it makes the cake dry...

    I hate frosting, but they're both beautiful. I love a good decorated naked cake.

    Overrated. They don鈥檛 fit my style and they just don鈥檛 have that timeless look. My FH hates icing, but even he doesn鈥檛 like them because he says the cake was too dry.

    Depends on your style. As long as there isn't fondant a cake is good!
