Colour drip cakes are one of the hottest and most fun trends for 2016. These fabulous cakes are perfect making a big statement that is all about the fun factor at birthdays and even weddings. Usually, colour drip cakes are sponge cakes that have been covered in fondant or left naked and finished with a layer of dripping coloured ganache, chocolate or caramel trickling down the sides. Not only are they great for bringing bold colours together but they’re also ideal for combining different flavours to seriously wow family and friends with.
We’ve put together some awesome colour drip cakes to inspire you – why not try to recreate your favourite one or come up with your own fun designs!
