    I think this totally depends on personal preference!

    Underrated. We are having a naked cake. And our wedding is rustic so it completes the look. Our cake will be served with ice cream at the venue

    This is actually my new favorite style. It's so rustic and rustic is my favorite!

    Underrated. My fiancee has teeth sensitivity with too much sugar, so I like the idea of a cake with no frosting! We will be doing a cake that looks like an aspen, and I'd love a semi-naked cake but we can't do a design without frosting. I think there are pros and cons to both.

    I like the idea, but I’m going to have to say overrated for this one. Just for me in particular though. My fiancé and I don’t like lots of frosting, but we slso aren’t planning to cake smash

    So extremely overrated. I worked in a bakery for a few years and we put out so many of these and they dry up faster and in my opinion give the whole cake a too-laid-back vibe. As someone who also hates frosting, I wouldn't do a naked cake unless it was almost completely engulfed in flowers.

    To each their own. I think they look aesthetically pleasing, but I love frosting, so it would never work for me.

    Overrated. You can have very little frosting but actually make it look like a finished product.

    Overrated. People think they have to do this in order to make it a simple wedding cake but there are so many other ways to accomplish that.

    Nope! I HATE these cakes! They look unfinished and dry! I'd rather my guests be able to scrape the frosting off then not have any frosting at all. These are a huge No for me.

    Although they're not something I personally wanted, I think naked cakes are totally underrated!! They're so simplistic and beautiful.
