Gone are the days where a celebration cake needed to be covered in thick fondant. One of the biggest trends with celebratory cakes on social media is something called the ‘Naked Cake’, where each layer of cake is exposed between even layers of ganache or buttercream. The simplicity of these cakes is impressive—proof that sometimes, less is more. Using a piping bag to pipe the buttercream between each layer creates an even look. Next time you have something special to celebrate, offer guests this chocolate buttercream mousse cake—it will not disappoint. This recipe is based on one from the century-old Haigh’s family company.
