I was terrified when my future sister in law asked me to make a Semi Naked cake for her bridal shower. Thankfully it wasn’t as hard and I thought it was going to be! Today is all about the semi naked and and how easy it is to make!
Alright y’all…I know that Sept. 1st was suppose to be the start of all things Halloween around here, I know. Please forgive me.
The next week is going to be WEDDING 24/7 around here and well, it’s the perfect time to share some of those wedding things I’ve been working on this year.
Since you know, the wedding is almost here. Oh, not MY wedding, My brother’s wedding. 😉
That’s right, my little brother is getting married in like 8 days. Holy Moly, y’all. My little brother is getting married!
My little brother, Adam, asked his sweetheart to marry him in a surprise photo session last year. At the time, September 2016 seemed like it would take forever to get here.
Now, it’s right on top of us.
That’s ok, we’re semi ready for it. haha
All the wedding things have been happening around here. The wedding invitations were made by yours truly, bachelor/bachelorette trips were planned/taken and wedding decisions made.
I’ve been helping my future sister in law, Meghan, work on wedding stuff all year and in August it was time for their wedding shower. My mom and I worked on the shower with a little help from some of Meghan’s bridesmaids, oh and it turned out perfectly.
We pretty much had control over the wedding shower planning but Meghan did request one thing. She asked for a semi naked orange cake for the shower.
I had never made a semi naked cake before but if Meghan wanted one for her shower, I was going to figure it out.
So the semi naked cake happened…..after tons of youtube tutorials that is. haha
I went with my favorite doctored cake recipe for the base which turned out perfectly.
Well it turned out perfectly for a homemade non professional cake. haha ( I don’t know why people keep asking me to make cakes lol)
She loved it and it was a huge hit at the party! Whoo whee, I’m glad because I was ridiculously nervous while I was making it.
While I was icing it, I kept telling my mom that it was the ugliest cake I’d ever seen. hahaha Thankfully, it looked much better after I finished icing it and added the flowers to it.
So today is all about semi naked cakes here on BigBearsWife.com haha.
I’ve got the directions and the easy recipes that I used for this Orange Semi Naked Sunflower Cake, below!
