I noticed that most occasions or celebrations will surely have cake, be it weddings, birthdays, engagements, parties, events, anniversaries and many more. Why is cake so important? To me cake symbolizes happiness, auspicious, sharing, and also indulge. Recently, I was surrounded by many cakes & bakery arts at Eat Cake Today’s “The Cake Show 2019” showcasing the popular and future creative Cake Trends For 2020!
This inaugural Cake Show is the first of its kind in Malaysia or even South East Asia that introduces Malaysians to this year’s trending cakes and what’s to come in 2020. There are series of exciting creations ranging from various cake types, baking arts, chocolate and sugar artistry which mirror the latest and future trends in the confectionery world.
Top 6 Cake Trends For 2020
Here are the top 6 Cake Trends for 2020 where beautiful and delicious cakes & desserts were available for tasting on the event day.
I tried one of them, the Strawberry Yoghurt Mousse the portion is just perfect and taste so good till it melts my heart. The miniature portion-controlled irresistible sweets and treats made from scratch using premium natural ingredients comes in 3 different flavours and served adorably in jars.
Good things always come in a small portion, especially these decadent jar desserts! These adorable looking yet delicious jar desserts are served in tiny jars make an ideal dessert for afternoon tea, picnic or as a fun treat for kids, friends, etc. The 3 different flavours are Strawberry Yoghurt Mousse, Orange Vanilla Mousse, Peanut Mousse with Vanilla Sponge, etc.
Since boba milk tea is a trend so as boba milk tea cake. Can you imagine the soft and fluffy milk tea-flavoured chiffon cake with boba pearls scattered across the top of the milk tea or hidden within the cake, a Boomerang-worthy fountain of boba! Don’t judge it’s tasted by how it looks, we dare you to try out this outrageous boba lava cake!
The geode cake trend is taking over the internet now! This scrumptious and gorgeous geode inspired cake portrays the jagged texture of the sugar as crystal perfectly. It is also decorated with handmade sugar flowers which are ideal for any corporate event and wedding ceremony.
An incredible cake that shines with a thousand lights! The cake base comes in 2 flavours you can choose from Belgian Chocolate and vanilla butter. Last but not least, the cake base comes with options to choose real or dummy cake for different tiers.
It looks like the cake is fractured by adding metallic touch and macarons in the midsection of the cake. It has salted caramel chocolate as a cake base, which will be covered in vanilla buttercream and a gold acrylic birthday topper. A fault line cake that is dedicated to making your celebration cake to be a one-of-a-kind art piece!
5. Gravitiminion Cake 10”
I love this! If you are looking for something unique, this minions inspired topsy turvy cake is fun and ideal for wacky birthdays or special occasions. You and your guests definitely will be amazed at this incredibly creative and awesome cake!
6. Projection Mapping Cake
It’s perfect for wedding ceremonies, anniversaries, big birthday bash, or even corporate events & launches. A great way to enhance your cake into a truly magical centrepiece is projection mapping technology applied to the box-tier cake. This impressive lighting and projection technique turns the cake into a unique, modern age work of art and breathtakingly live. You can customize your wording and animation graphic design that refresh to your personal style.
Chocolatier and Sugar Artistry
During the event, three young amazing pastry chefs namely Chef Chong Ko Wai, Chef Lawrence Cheong and Chef Chen May Ling presented an amazing demonstration and display of world-class standard in Chocolatier and Sugar Artistry.
