I'm falling in  love the "Naked Cakes"  I've been seeing them more and more and the more I see them the more I love them!  BUT if anyone has created one or has tasted one, are they dry?  I always thought that the icing and fondant kept the cakes from drying out...  I would love to know other's thoughts and feelings about them.

You're right that icing and fondant keep cakes from drying out. Paper liners function in the same way. Naked cakes are a cute fad but are counter-productive to a retail display.

That's what I thought and good to know if anyone inquires about them.  Thank you!

I was told by customer service of where I purchased the dragees that they are the same gold dragees as year ago, and they just recommend they be removed and not eaten. Still didn't answer my question.  My best guess is because of the metallic color and the result of too much being ingested.  I'll just advise them to remove them before serving. I'm not going to have many on the cake anyway.

I'm not sure what your question is. I wrote about this topic last year. Non-Toxic Does Not = Edible

I'd only do naked cakes if the edges were brushed or sprayed with a simple syrup and then I'd use acetate strips around the edge for display.

LOL, I apologize I was going back and forth between 2 different posts.
