  • Botanical flavouring: When we look into the trends making its way into the cake business we see using different flowers and leaves and stems of the plant has made its way back into the cake world. Yes,coca, vanilla and strawberry is technically parts of a plant, but flowers like hibiscus, lavender, rose and others have come back to give us new flavours and new look.Along with this wonder flowers are the leaves like basil and thyme helps give the cake a rather savoury touch to it, hence giving us a new and different world of cakes.
  • Berries on the outside and candy on the inside: we have seen cakes being topped with different types of chocolates, sprinkles, sauces and even whipped cream. Under the topping we obviously have the cake, but in the last couple of years, the cake world has been introduced to berries as toppings, strawberries, blueberries any berry you’d like. The inside on the other hand isn’t just cake, the cake is hollowed in and filled with candy.So when you cut into the cake you find candy spilling out from the centre.
