A new OTT milkshake trend is in town and we’re totally on board with it!
These over the top milkshakes are the stuff of childhood legends. An epic, indulgent confection that’s taking Singapore by storm, Cakeshakes™, as trademarked by local cake store Cake Spade, is the first to bring this dessert craze to town. The origins of this magnificent creation came from Canberra, Australia, from a quaint café called Patissez, where the owner had wanted to come up with something that was delicious-looking and fit for Instagram.
The formula obviously worked because this food trend is currently all over social media. Filled and covered to the brim with almost anything and everything that’s sweet, these milkshakes will definitely bring all the boys (and girls) to the yard.
At Cake Spade, there are currently three concoctions that you can choose from namely the Mudslide Cakeshake (pictured above), Unicorn Shake and Matcha Azuki. The Mudslide Cakeshake is essentially a dark chocolate ice cream shake filled with a petite slice of chocolate cake, Oreo cookies marshmallow popcorn, drizzled with caramel sauce. As for the Unicorn Shake, the most colourful of the lot is topped off with a pink ball of cotton candy and the Matcha Azuki is a green tea ice cream milk shake with red beans and the works.
Another spot that’s taken to this OTT milkshake is Benjamin Browns Bistro & Bakery. Choose from Nutella Banana, Coffee Avocado, Caramel Crunch, and Old School milkshakes that’ll surely gain you 100 likes on Instagram! We tried the Nutella Banana shake and boy was it a rich and lip-smacking dessert choice. These shakes are considerably large and tough to finish individually so we highly recommend sharing!
Our verdict on this crazy out-of-this-world milkshake trend: Go ahead and try it! We’ll never say no to dessert and while these milkshakes are sinful and will probably pack on some calories, just a little taste won’t hurt anymore. Besides, life is too short to live by rules.
