I think they look pretty but I LOVE icing so it's a big no from me for them!
The lady making my wedding cake tried to sell me on the whole naked thing as a look and I shut it straight down. I said I've been dieting for months to get into my wedding dress, if anything the cake is going to be fully formed from icing with no sponge at all... certainly not the other way round!

This was a argument between me and my Mum about my wedding cake.
I liked the naked look.
Mum hated it, said it looked weird and she'd bring her own icing to finish it on my wedding day if I got one.
I did end up having one, Mum recoiled at the sight of it.
Obviously just not for everyone

I don't like the icing you roll out and put on cake, I normally pick it off and eat it naked stupid bloody name for it! so if it was that or nothing I'd have nothing but what the hell is wrong with buttercream or ganache etc on the outside of your cake like cake deserves to have.

My only thought is "Why do they have to keep giving silly names to ordinary things?" I sound like my granny (miss you Nonna). This must be what happens when you get older.
Seriously, though. It's an un-iced cake, yes? Or part-iced? If the new name requires explanation, it's a stupid name ;-)

For my taste, a really moist cake like a good quality fruit cake, or a carrot cake with pineapple as part of its ingredients is usually moist enough not to need icing.
But, then, I abominate buttercream. I do like icing made with icing sugar, a little knob of butter and lemon juice juice, and then heated. But, for me, nothing beats proper whipped cream in a cake.

They do look amazing though.

From a link in ItalianGreyhound's link:
I like these more. You could call them partly dressed? They seem to have more of a sense of structure to them.
