Are waffle cakes the next cake trend, following cake pops, ombre cakes, mug cakes and unicorn cakes?

We don’t know, because we’ve only come across them in an article published 18 months ago. No recipes have come over the transom; no waffle cake book has been published.

Instead of baking cake layers, you make waffles. It’s faster, and an easy option to make when you’re jonesing for a piece of cake.

So: Trend, who knows? Dessert, yes! Brunch, why not? Fun, definitely!

And you can add a candle to them for a birthday waffle cake.
