7 Instagram Bakeries for Minimalistic Korean Cakes
The Korean Wave isn’t stopping anytime soon. The world’s enthusiasm with all things related to Korean culture has brought the introduction of new experiences and restaurants including the latest Airbnb’s “Inside K-pop” digital festival; the opening of OBP, Hong Kong’s newest Korean bar opened by the team behind 11 Westside; and most recently, the influx of aesthetically pleasing, minimalistic Korean cakes on Instagram.
While there are no set rules to what these Korean cakes should look or taste like, all of them share similar appearances—decorated with vibrant, multi-coloured buttercream frosting, using either complementary, pastel colours or deliberately clashing colour pairings for a more dramatic flair. If you’re looking for a picture-perfect cake for your next celebration, we list out the best Instagram cake shops in Hong Kong that specialise in the ever-popular Korean cakes.
Whether you’re after a more personalised cake design with your favourite cartoon character drawn on top, or if you want adorable cartoon versions of you and your loved one plastered on the cake, 65.cakes does it all.
For cake flavours, choose from Hokkaido milk, chocolate, coffee, earl grey, matcha or lemon flavour. Cake pick-ups are available at several locations at specified time slots daily, or arrange for GoGoVan delivery for an extra cost.

Boldly promising to only make classy cakes, Fifty Cake specialises in buttercream chiffon cakes, pastries and sweets. Their newest cake offering, named “Abbey”, are monochrome pastel cakes with dramatic cream frosting piped around the edges of the cylinder shape.
While we usually associate cakes with bright colours, Fifty Cakes offer a unique monochrome light grey cake that would be perfect for that one friend who seems to only own black clothes in their closet.

For louder designs and colour schemes, @anlala.cake has got the formula down to a science. We love their bright citrus-coloured floral cake made with vanilla cream chiffon, or their many vintage cake designs which usually features a pastel cake base, roses and lots of icing.
