If cupcakes and cake pops sound too last season to you, it’s because they are. There’s a “handy” new dessert in town – Bengalureans, say hello to cakesicles!

A delectable combination of cake and popsicles, cakesicles seem to be the latest food trend in the city.

Put simply, a cakesicle is a cake on a stick resembling a popsicle. Apart from being delicious, it is also a visual treat.

Lavonne in Indiranagar is among the first eateries in the city to have started making and selling these yummy desserts. They are custom designed and the themes change every week.

“Right now, we have unicorn theme cakesicles selling in the shop. Before this it was superheroes and before that cherry blossoms,” says Shailesh Johny, Director of Communications, Lavonne.

The flavours of cakesicles made at Lavonne are usually chocolate based with the theme around them changing.

“Both kids and adults love it. It was somebody’s birthday recently and the person loved superheroes. We made cakesicles of superheroes such as Batman and Superman. Cakesicles are the top sellers now,” he says.

Diya Jojan of The Sugar Therapy on Richmond Road has also recently begun making cakesicles with her friends Akash and Sajeel, and she says they’ve been selling like hot cakes.

“There have been people who have been making this for a while, but in India there are a very few people making it. But the concept has caught on in the past two months,” she says.

The cakesicles made by the trio are a mix of cake and icing or chocolate ganache.

“There's a lot of chocolate in it. There’s a chocolate shell and there’s cake in it. And it is coated in coloured chocolate and then there is coloured fondant,” she adds.

These also make for lovely treats at family gatherings or to give away as gifts.

A recently married couple got ‘bride and groom’ themed cakesicles at their wedding.

Keeping the hot weather in mind, another creation that Diya and her friends have come up with is jelly popsicles. These look like popsicles but are made of jelly.

“These jelly ones are very refreshing as it is so hot right now. We have also been using very light flavours such as mojito, passionfruit and peach,” Diya says.

The price of cakesicles and jelly popsicles range between Rs 180-200 a piece.
