Naked Wedding Cake Recipe

By Paige McCurdy-Flynn, Food & Wine

A naked wedding cake is left with the sides unfrosted, for a rustic and natural look. This deliciously tender dark chocolate cake is infused with orange blossom water and layered with a fluffy, not-too-sweet orange blossom meringue. To keep the cake in place, you will need three 10-inch long wooden dowels.

Ingredients

CAKE:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened Dutch process cocoa powder, plus more for dusting
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon orange blossom water

SWISS MERINGUE:

  • 1 1/2 cups superfine sugar
  • 5 large egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange blossom water
  • Edible flowers, blackberries, blueberries and pomegranate seeds, for garnish


How to Make It

Step 1 make the cake

Preheat the oven to 350°. Butter two 8-by-2-inch round cake pans and line them with parchment; butter the paper. Dust the pans with flour, tapping out any excess.

Step 2 make the cake

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle, mix the flour with the sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt at low speed. In a bowl, whisk the buttermilk with the oil, eggs and vanilla. Slowly beat the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients until just incorporated, then slowly beat in the hot coffee until fully incorporated.

Step 3 make the cake

Pour the batter into the prepared pans. Bake for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of each cake comes out clean. Let the cakes cool in the pans for 30 minutes, then invert the cakes onto a rack to cool. Peel off the parchment.

Step 4 make the frosting

In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the chocolate at high power in 30-second intervals, stirring, until most of the chocolate is melted. Stir until completely melted, then set aside to cool.

Step 5 make the frosting

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle, beat the butter at medium speed until pale and fluffy. Add the egg yolk and vanilla and beat for 1 minute, scraping down the side of the bowl. At low speed, slowly beat in the confectioners’ sugar, about 1 minute. In a small bowl, dissolve the instant coffee in 2 teaspoons of hot water. Slowly beat the coffee and the cooled chocolate into the butter mixture until just combined.

Step 6 make the frosting

Set a cake layer on a plate with the flat side facing up. Evenly spread one-third of the frosting over the cake to the edge. Top with the second cake layer, rounded side up. Spread the remaining frosting over the top and side of the cake. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before slicing.

Make Ahead

The frosted cake can be refrigerated for 2 days. Let stand for 1 hour before serving.
