The Naked Cake

The Naked Cake is one of the hottest wedding cake trends of the season. You may ask, what is a Naked Cake? It’s a cake without frosting on the sides. This cake is incredibly stylish and chic and you’re about to see why. I’ve rounded up 10 Naked Cakes that prove you don’t need a pound of buttercream for your cake to make a statement.

Let’s start off with the basics, shall we? For beginning bakers (or a quick refresher course!), check out this helpful how-to video that  Crate&Barrel put together.

White Chocolate and Jam S’mores

Hey everybody! I’m Megan DeKok from Take a Megabite. I’m just a girl living in the suburbs of Detroit baking my feelings and churning ice cream on the fly before leaving for work in the morning. I’m pretty excited to be hanging out guest-style over here on Delish Dish!

Let’s just jump on into it, ok? If I had to shout from the rooftops two of my favorite things, they might just be Valentine’s Day and s’mores. So this recipe for White Chocolate & Jam S’mores is kinda perfect for me. It’s double the chocolate because there is dark chocolate in the homemade grahams AND white chocolate sandwiched right in there. It can also be easily adapted to use any jam or preserves you have. Just imagine it with strawberry rhubarb! What a dream, right? I’m thinking spring s’mores will be happening.

I really love how in the recipe they suggest cutting out small shapes out of the top cracker so that toasted marshmallow can really shine. Lookin’ good marshmallow, you’re just as toasty as you wanted to grow up to be.

So if you’re looking to give out a dreamy edible Valentine, I’d recommend packing up these s’mores as kits, gift basket-style. No pressure, but the gift tag could say something like: “I love you s’more than anything!” Or maybe “Let’s spend s’more time together.”

Anyhow, thanks for having me! Hope your February is magic!

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

Truffles that I KNOW you will love! I made these peanut butter truffles with some tweaks.

I love peanut butter and white chocolate…so when I saw the truffles, I knew I had to make them with white chocolate! I also topped some of them with melted semi-sweet chocolate!

It’s really easy, I melted the chocolate (and the white chocolate in the microwave). Make sure you set the power to 50% and start with 30 seconds and then stir and repeat with 15 second intervals and stirring until the chocolate is completely melted.

I put my decorator bag into a coffee mug and add the chocolate.

White Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake

When it comes to easy, light, and totally delicious summer desserts, strawberry shortcake is a quintessential favorite. So when I saw this recipe for Classic Shortcakes this past week, I knew I had to kick of the summer properly with this sweet treat.

However, to make things a little more interesting I decided to add a little something extra to the classic recipe with some white chocolate chips. When served slightly warm, the little morsels of melted white chocolate add an extra layer of creamy flavor.

I simply followed this recipe and added in about 3/4 cup of chopped white chocolate chips when mixing together the dry ingredients. I also think these would be delicious with milk or dark chocolate chips as well. Any chocolate goes wonderfully with strawberries.

I also like that you can bake a bunch of these up, throw them in the freezer, and have a quick easy dessert any night of the week. There’s no  need to turn the oven on each time you get a craving for something sweet.

Strawberry Shortcake is definitely one of my summer favorites! What yours? Let us know in the comments below.

Happy Baking!

White Chocolate and Cranberry Pot de Creme

For those still recovering from holiday baking fatigue, this New Year’s Eve dessert is a low-fuss, show-stopping dessert. To start, I used the white chocolate pot de crème recipe from here and topped it with the cranberry filling recipe from here. For a festive finish I rimmed the glasses with some gold disco dust.

Aside from being totally easy, the best part of this dessert—the creamy chocolate against the sweetness of cranberries will have you reaching for seconds between champagne sips.

Here’s to ringing in 2014! Cheers!

*Note: To rim the glass, chill the pot de crème, place a teaspoon of disco dust in the palm of your hand; turn and press the sides of the glass into the disco dust. 

Double-Chocolate Peppermint Pot de Creme

Tis the peppermint season! This is one of my favorite holiday flavors – it’s crisp, fresh and seems to always put a seasonal touch on any dessert dish. This Double-Deck Pot de Creme is no exception.

I love this recipe for its ease of preparation, but most of all—it’s a no-bake recipe that can be made ahead of time. Which of course makes it holiday-perfect when your oven is busy doing savory, your head is crazy with timing each dish, and one hand is busy balancing a cocktail and the other is busy refilling appetizers, all while carrying on multiple conversations. Okay, so maybe not everyone’s holiday soirees are as I described above, but if you are remotely close to that, then you will love this no-fuss recipe even more.

So keep this recipe classic as you see here or melt a 1/4 cup of crushed peppermint candy into the dark chocolate and finish with a sprinkle of it on top for a holiday touch.

*Recommend peppermint candy: Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses, Andes Peppermint Crunch, Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark.
