We always thought watching cookie-decorating videos was as relaxing as it gets, but that was before we were introduced to tsunami cakes. Tsunami cakes (or pull-me-up cakes) are an insanely fun trend that’s all over Instagram. The cakes feature a layer of creamy frosting that creates a sugary “wave” when you pull off the plastic cylinder holding it all together. It sounds a little weird, but trust us, these videos are so mesmerizing, and the cakes look absolutely delicious.
Bakers from all over the world are getting in on this cake trend and getting super creative when it comes to their own designs. Some cakes, like the ones made by Nayane Capistrano, feature Disney princess details with glitter in the frosting, while others keep the focus on the delicious cake ingredients like strawberries and whipped cream. Is it possible to love a dessert this much without even tasting it? Keep reading to watch videos of some of our favorite tsunami cakes in action, and don’t be surprised if you somehow lose an hour (or two) watching these on repeat — it’s a truly therapeutic experience.
