Modern cakes continue to stir our imagination and just when you think you’ve seen it all, there’s an all-new fad on the feed.
The latest to join the list of viral food trends is the jelly island cake. Bakers from around the world have been sharing photos of cakes that look like tropical islands. While the ocean is made of gelatin, the island is made of sponge cake.

My version of the Jelly Island Cake, the newest trend in our cake world right now! Mountain island is all chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and chocolate ganache. Modeling chocolate sea life, and other edible and painted details! This was a blast to make! ðÂÂÂÂÂÂ ðÂÂÂÂÂÂ¢ ðÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ . #jellycake #jellyislandcake #jellyoceancake #gelatinart #rockcake #seacake #bangormaine #mainecakes
For some it looked yum, while for others, it was feeding their wanderlust with colourful corals and sandy beaches. This little edible paradise— baked in a cylindrical shape and carved with intricate detail to mirror the looks and vibe of the beachside—boasts of multiple layers of chocolate. While the blue ocean is recreated with a jelly mix, crumbled cookies, and nuts, chocolate ganache makes the corals, plants, and ruins on the edible seabed, adding a slice of marine life to this miniature island.
Pro Tip: Add the corals, shells and other finer details to the cake before the jelly hardens
