So I am trying to figure out what I want my wedding cake to be like. I really want it to taste good more than anything, and be pleasing to the eye, but in a more minimalist way than most cakes I have seen (I am a very plain elegant type of person and cakes to me tend to get gaudy).
I am not a huge fan of fondant and I was thinking a cake like a Smith Island Cake with different color fillings and no side frosting would be really cool. Has anyone ever seen this done. For instance it would be just like layers of cake, fruit filling, cake, marzipan or butter frosting, in many layers with the sides not iced so you could see the stripes? Would there be a reason why this wouldn't work? Has anyone seen anything like this? If so any pictures?
