Some people know him as the better half of renowned designer Francis Libiran. But, in his own right, Christian Mark Jacobs is the creative mind behind Naked Patisserie, an enterprise that has been offering some of the most exquisite wedding cakes – and a number of other delectable confections – over the past year.
“I actually launched the business when Francis and I got married last year,” Jacobs says of Naked Patisserie. Indeed, social media went mad over the magnificent rustic confection that was the five-tier lemon bourbon cake served at the couple’s reception in Boracay. So much, in fact, that numerous celebrities have been ordering Jacobs’ cakes for their own weddings. Now, those with a serious sweet tooth can order a variety of edible masterpieces – from Jacobs’ signature cakes to gift sets featuring toothsome cookies and luxurious Oreo cheesecake truffles – through Naked Patisserie’s new online store.
