Photos: 2014 Dessert Trends thus far
There has always been a niche appeal when it comes to desserts and what's popular. Sweet treats have been as flaky and trend-inspiring as Milan's fashion week so without a doubt we wouldn't be surprised when there are trends when it comes to what we eat to finish off a good meal.
From macaroons to Ansel's Cronuts to frozen yoghurt, desserts are giants fads waiting to happen, stay for a little bit and then if they're lucky maybe they will stick around for a bit longer.
Though you might still crave frozen yoghurt, there will still be exciting and upcoming trends when it comes to desserts, and ScoopyScoop has compiled a few desserts to what experts think have been huge this year.
|Miniature desserts are expected to blow up in popularity as millennial adults tend to eat impulsively. Mini treats will curb their cravings without going too far.|
|Retro/old school puddings are easy to make at home.|
Infused ice cubes will be a great way to drink more water, or sweeten up alcohol.
|Gourmet or artisan doughnuts will be beautiful to look at, which will be irresistible for buyers!|
Greek yoghurt is becoming a trend as it is a healthy option filling compared to cream.
|Tea in general will become fancier and more 'artsy'. Starbucks even opened their first tea shop.|
|Unexpected flavour combos are likely to strike our tastebuds. Try star anise, pumpkin, pink peppercorn, maca, lucuma and sea salt!|
|Dominique Ansel 's prediction is that desserts will join forces with vegetables! He's already right as restaurants are coming up with things like the Celery Cheesecake Roll.|
