Back when I was whipping up my well-loved buttercream and turning out more traditional wedding cakes in my tiny little bakery here in Virginia Beach, there was no such thing as a naked wedding cake. But years later, I'm completely hooked. These rustic cakes with their lovely unfrosted layers and randomly placed cherries and fresh strawberries, are as inviting as ice cold watermelon on the 4th of July. Here are my favorite unfrosted wedding cakes, each one more lovely than the next.
