Get naked at your reception...a naked cake, that is!

January 5th, 2017

At the heart of every wedding reception is the cake.  From antiquity to modern times, matrimony has been celebrated over cake.  The tiered wedding cake we recognize today came into fashion when Prince Albert married Queen Victoria in 1840.  

Today, just about anything goes in terms of flavor, design, color, and decoration.  Aruba’s bakers and pastry chefs are happy to accommodate each couple’s personal taste and flair. 

An on-trend style for 2016 is the deconstructed “naked cake.”  The less-is-more, rustic style brings surprising drama to a reception.

Pastry Chef Geert van Mil, who worked as Divi Resorts Aruba’s pastry chef for many years and now has his own cake and pastry business (The Patissier), has made this cake in a variety of flavors—from traditional vanilla to chocolate, or even a “funfetti” cake flavor for a bride this past June.
