* Fault Line Cake

A fault line cake is a visual splendour as it is decorated by making a lot of fault lines and intentionally exposing the middle part of the cake so that everyone can have a look at the internal layers and artistry. The exposed section is generally filled with different types of candies, sprinkles, and other decorative items that contribute to the visual aspect even more. One can also make this cake in a more sophisticated way by filling the fault lines with strawberries or some floral ice cream as per their preference. The cake can be made in any flavour of one's choice and is a treat to the eyes.

* Drip Cake

Drip cake became a worldwide sensation because of its stunning visual appearance and the animated effect that it gives. The cake looks so unbelievably perfect that it almost seems like a cut out from a 3-D printer. It is made by taking colourful icing on the top of a white canvas-like cake and pouring it over so that it drips down unevenly. This creates a very random but beautiful dripping pattern. On the top one can make different types of patterns with the help of icing that are decorated with fruits and even candies. This type of cake is perfect for children who would like the cake to be extremely flavourful and colourful.

* Mirror Glaze Cake

Mirror glaze cake almost looks like a piece of the universe transfigured into a cake. It's a confluence of various astronomic colours like purple, dark blue, light blue, and royal blue, with hints of sparkles. Although it is made in other colours as well, the colour combination stated above is the most popular and internet favourite one. The use of such striking and indelible colours is not the only interesting fact about this cake. The use of gelatin on the topmost layer gives it a very glazy shine. One may use powdered gelatin or gelatin in the form of leaves as per the availability to get the perfect effect.

* Tres Leches Cake

Tres leches is already a very famous Latin American dessert. However, in the past few months, the dessert has become extremely popular on the internet and people have started making a proper birthday cake following the recipe of tres leches. The cake is made by soaking a regular sponge cake in a mixture of condensed milk, evaporated milk, and heavy cream. This helps in imparting a very different and unique texture to the milk and makes it fluffy and milky at the same time. On the top, some heavy cream is spread along with fresh strawberries and cinnamon powder. This is an uncomplicated and sophisticated cake that one can make at home.

* Raindrop Cake

A raindrop cake is probably one of the most interesting cakes on this list that gained the curiosity of people over the internet and became a sensation overnight. It is a cake metamorphosed into the form of a raindrop. The cake is jiggly and resembles a large raindrop with something in the centre. The recipe of the cake was invented in Japan and it later got famous in the rest of the world. 

The cake is made from mainly two ingredients including mineral water and agar agar powder. This cake is vegan and vegetarian friendly and the best part is that it is entirely guilt-free as there are almost no calories in this cake. The cake is transparent so one can see what is in the centre and it is traditionally served with some brown sugar syrup on the side.
