What are drip cakes?
A drip cake is a type of dessert that consists of many layers of sponge or sponge-like cake and icing. The top layer is often covered in sprinkles, chocolate chips, or other toppings to make the cake look more festive and visually appealing. There is usually frosting dripping off the side to give it the drip look. We even have the sprinkles and edible glitter ready for you!
