My cute friend Caitlin got in touch with me to ask if I would make a naked smash cake for her little girl Indy’s first birthday and some naked cupcakes as well. She wanted everything to be in pale pink, mint green and gold. I was curious to see how a naked cake would look with pink frosting, it turned out pretty cute. The cake is tiny, top layer is 3″, middle is 4″ and bottom is 5″, hard to frost because they are so small but perfect for a baby smash cake.
I experimented with the cupcakes to try and get a “Naked” look to them but naked frosting like on the cake doesn’t look that good on a cupcake but then I tried a small rosette leaving the edges naked and I think that looks so adorable. I just love these cupcakes.
The cake and cupcakes are vanilla made with the White Almond Sour Cream Cake recipe that has become my favorite cake recipe ever and the frosting is my favorite Buttercream Icing tinted with the new Wilton Color Right Performance Color System which I am really happy with so far, it really does help to get just the right color. Caitlin provided the gold cupcake liners and the cake accessories. Happy happy 1st Birthday to sweet baby Indy!
