Looking at this list of sweet treats, a few items look quite exciting. For example, many people love a salted caramel, what about an umami flavor with that cake. For example, Ube doughnuts are becoming more popular. It is more than just that bold purple color.

Also, the idea of glowing desserts could be quite intriguing. With more chefs looking to create visually impressive dishes, the idea of color changing food is more than just some glitter or sparkles on a dessert. Could those color changing cocktails transform into a color changing meal?

While not specifically stated in this sweet food trends report, there is a global flavor influence within all 10 food predictions. From the Japanese souffle pancakes to the mochi desserts, these desserts are not that grandma’s apple pie. Although some flavors could have a connection, the presentation might be different. Sometimes the differences and the similarities are not so far apart.

Overall, this sweet food trends list could be a tasty way to step outside of your comfort zone. Sure that slice of chocolate cake is always tasty, but those puffy snacks that melt in your mouth could be the dessert of your dreams. But, you have to take that first bite.
