Simple is best.
You’ve seen it before on social media, topped with birthday wishes, confessions of love, or even just because messages. We’re talking about those viral minimalist cakes!
They apparently originated from South Korea (the land of all trending things), where instead of the usual detailed cake design they tone it down with solid pastel colors and some straightforward text to get the message across.
The trend has now crash-landed in the Philippines and you can try it for yourself by getting in touch with these Filipino minimalist cake shops.
