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.
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.

Sky-high cakes from the Cafe Mary Grace's line of Celebration Cakes are perfect for special occassions. They are classy, elegant, and most importantly, absolutely delicious.

Gone are the days of thick fondant-covered and fondant-styled cakes. Buttercream flowers look beautiful when piped, and have easily become a favorite in the cake world. This Jakarta-based home baker pipes out neat, gorgeous flowers on her cakes.
5 Naked Cakes
No icing on the sides gives cakes a rustic and approachable look. Momofuku Milk Bar's signature naked cakes have it all: soft sponges and lots of frosting in between!
