Kristi’s Naked Chocolate Raspberry Cake

Naked Chocolate and Raspberry Wedding Cake by Cassidy Budge Cake Design

This is a naked cake.  I’m calling it a naked cake because it’s NAKED!  I love that the only buttercream on the cake is found between each layer of cake and not all over it.  And I know I say this about all of my cakes after I’m finished with them but I’m totally serious about this one.   It. Is. My. Favorite.  I love that it doesn’t look like a typical wedding cake.  I love the contrast between the dark chocolate color of the cake and the pink fresh raspberry buttercream.  I love the fresh blackberries.  The fresh flowers were gorgeous and the smell of this cake was unreal.  Trust me, this cake smelled incredible.  It was also my heaviest cake to date.  I don’t know for sure how much it weighed, but I wouldn’t have been surprised to find out it weighed 50 lbs.

Here are some beautiful photos by the lovely Cassidy Tuttle.

  • Cassidy I love all of your wedding cakes, but this is one of my favorites. I did a watercolor of it and will be featuring it and your website on my blog soon! Can’t wait to see what your create next.

  • So amazing looking..
    I’m thinking about making something like that for my kids great great grandmother who is becoming 100 in May..

    Can I ask if it’s a chocolate mud cake the cake itself?

  • I came here after researching this cake because I found it on Pinterest. I’m obsessed. An I am excited to say this is exactly what I want for my wedding. I saw it & knew right away! Now that I know where this beautiful creation came from you can be sure when I get a date (and engaged haha) that I will be ordering this beauty. With a few minor changes. But I had to come & post my appreciation for your beautiful work! Superb!
