Try new baking trend for Mother’s Day

North America – Are you a person who bakes often? Or are you someone who has never baked at all? With World Baking Day just passing and Mother’s Day coming around the corner on May 14th, here is a new baking trend that you should try to make.

One of the best ways to show someone you love them is with homemade baked goods. So, what better way to celebrate Mom this year than with a cake trend. 

Cartoon Cakes are the new baking trend sweeping Instagram and TikTok. The idea is to make a real cake look two-dimensional. – think simple, bright color palettes and a basic design.

After gaining popularity on social media around the end of 2022, there are many different variations of cakes decorated to look like two-dimensional cakes. 

Directions to make a cartoon cake once a cake has been baked: 
•    Choose between fondant or buttercream for icing, however fondant can result in a sharper effect
•    Ice the cake with a base layer that is ideally a light colour 
•    Add black outlines to every border to make the cake look like a cartoon 

The comic cake consists of a limited color palette of only two or three colors, usually pastel, which are then outlined to look like a drawing.

World Baking Day is a campaign started by Unilever to encourage people to bake something. World Baking Day is on May 17th; however, the day is to be celebrated on a Sunday to ensure people have time to bake. 

With a little bit of creativity and patience, you can create a cartoon cake that will impress your mom and guests to make your special occasion even more memorable.
