    Easy Naked Cake Recipe

    Naked cakes are bold and beautiful, showing all of their layers, revealing their imperfections and displaying their natural beauty. Unlike most cakes, they’re appreciated for their flaws, making them effortless!

    I know I’m not perfect. From time to time, readers will point it out to me via comments and email, my all-too-honest toddlers will reveal my mistakes and I see it every day in the chaos of our home. Rather than hide them, I want to strive to embrace them and the season of life I am in.
