Textured Ocean Wave Cake
A new food trend that originated in Korea and is gaining serious popularity all over the world right now is minimalist cakes. The word "minimalism" has been around for a while now when it comes to things like home decor, but the idea that less is more also works really well for food — especially cake decorations! While some of these cakes have a complex design, the overall feel is scaled way back from what we're so used to seeing on cakes: tons of decorations, lots of color, and a usually obscene amount of frosting. With designs inspired by things like pop culture and nature, these cakes are perfect for anyone who wants their dessert to stand out in a unique, understated way. Can you tell we're obsessed? Keep scrolling for 41 of our favorite examples from Instagram that may have you baking (or ordering) a minimalist cake in no time.
