1  Drip Cakes

Smooth and elegant glaze dripping over the sides of a cake is easily the biggest cake craze of the year. They make cake decorating easy, plus this design is easy on the eyes, too! Sydney-based home baker Phoebe Osborne makes simple drip cakes with fun colors. 



2  Ube

Be proud, fellow Pinoys! A local favorite, ube, is taking over the world as one of the biggest 2016 food trends with its bright purple color and earthy flavor. Looking for a moist, flavorful ube cake in Manila? Check out Indulge Patisserie
