Cakes have evolved over the years, and bakeries in Mumbai have become increasingly creative with their designs and flavours. Today, cakes are not considered just scrumptious delicacies, but also works of art that can be customised to suit any theme or preference.
Comic cakes are more than just a fun and playful trend in the world of baking. They resemble traditional buttercream cakes, but bakers decorate them to look like 2D comic cakes. The most integral element that makes comic cakes stand out from the rest is the black outline made with either rolled black fondant or piped icing. Comic cakes are basically regular cakes decorated in a cartoonish way with a limited colour palette, usually pastel, which makes them appear as if they are just out of a cartoon, movie, or comic book scene.
One of the major reasons for the popularity of comic cakes is social media. It has become easier to discover and share creative cake designs thanks to social media platforms like Instagram and Pinterest. Below is a curated list of a few trendy designs that can be seen in bakeries and online cake-decorating tutorials.
As the name suggests, small mini comic cakes are made exactly like a regular cake but in a much smaller size. Not only is this mini cake a cute miniature replica of your favourite cake, but it's also a treat to your taste buds and your eyes. The black fondant strips completely change the look from a regular mini cake to a small mini comic cake.
These small mini cakes are available in almost every unique possible colour combination and flavour you desire. Indulge in the world of exquisite flavours from the sweet tang of fresh strawberries to the decadent richness of chocolate salted caramel with these cakes.
Cake slice comic cakes are exactly what they sound like; a cake that looks like a slice of cake. Unlike most cake designs, this unusual style features a standard cake slice shaped into a giant slice. The design of it seems like a giant cake slice on a plate which is often seen in cartoons and comic books.
A distinctive feature of cake slice comic cakes is the detailed decoration of the slice. After baking, the whole cake is covered with velvety chocolate ganache and finished with a layer of sweet fondant to create a flawless look. The detailing of the bread and different-coloured fondant creates a drippy icing look which adds more depth and detail to the cake slice. On top of it, bakers often add chocolate fondant candles or a cherry to make it look more pleasing.
Baking a comic cake involves selecting a vision board with comic strips or a character style you wish to use before you begin preparing the cake. The multi-layered tier comic cake often takes a lot of time and patience but it's worth the effort. Three sizes of cake are prepared, and the batter and preparation are the same, but bakers often decorate the cake with flat shapes to give it a more 2D appearance.
These decorations are made with various flavours and colours, which you can choose from. To achieve a striking 2D effect, the cake decorators use hand-piped black buttercream to outline the design of the cake. The black piping not only adds depth and dimension to the cake but also enhances the overall visual impact, making the design pop and come to life.
