Naked Easter Cake

I made my Naked Easter Cake with an orange sponge cake recipe that my mom and I used when we were catering.  It is really easy and is light and moist.  I don’t know where she found this recipe but it has been my favorite ever since.

Naked cakes are creations that forgo the traditional last layer of icing to display the colors and textures of what’s inside the cake.

They are very trendy right now and are the wedding cake “of the moment”.  I love their uniqueness as I think they look rustic and homely…..like you have just rustled it up in your kitchen with love.

My cake will be the center piece on my Easter table on Sunday……
