These Flower-Infused Jelly Cakes Are the Prettiest Thing You’ll See All Day

The past few years is proving to be an incredible year for foodies! From everything unicorn to the Mediterranean diet taking off, there is something for everyone — and their Instagram feeds, of course. But one of the most prettiest trends to drop is flower-infused jelly cakes.

Touted the next it dessert on social media, we can vouch for this one as a welcomed addition to your feed.

Flower jelly cakes epitomize decadence in every insanely gorgeous way. As the next big thing that will surely make its way to the States, these floral jelly cakes are all the rage down under.

Sold at La Floraison in Australia, these sakura-inspired jelly desserts are a lasting mainstay in Japanese culture and captivating people everywhere.

According to PopSugar, these clear desserts are made of agar powder, which is primarily used to make jelly-like substances. Meanwhile, the flowers are made of coconut cream and milk.

From what is evidently seen in photographs, the flower cakes are about the size of a baseball and available in a variety of options from sakura cherry blossoms and roses to chrysanthemums and even white and light blue flowers.

La Floraison reveals on their Instagram that it takes roughly nine minutes to design the flower petals and pairs perfectly with coffee or tea thanks to its mild, slightly sweet coconut flavor.

However, some customers say it is a bit bland in flavor. The café hopes to add more sauces for customers who prefer a bit more flavor to go with their drinks.

As you can tell, these sweet delights are as picturesque as it gets! With rich, luscious gradients to fine detail, these are one of the nicest, artsy food trends this year.

While they are quite different from your carb-filled, icing-covered cake, they are still pretty close in extravagance to the famous raindrop cake.

Would you try these cakes? Have you tried them already? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
