Way back in 2016, we first reported that cloud bread was a growing internet food trend.

Then just last year, it hit new viral heights when it reached the world of TikTok.

For those unacquainted with the food, cloud bread is a low-carb, gluten-free baked good. However, what distinguishes it from other bread options is its light and fluffy texture.

As the world became obsessed with baking, cloud bread took over and aspiring bakers began to add food colourings to the mix. Not only was it tasty, cloud bread was aesthetically pleasing too.

Now in 2021, it has returned again, but this time with a sweeter taste.

Cloud cake is made in a similar way to its bread equivalent with egg whites being the main ingredient, but extra sugar is used for flavouring and sweet treats (such as Oreos and chocolate) are added.

A standard cloud cake recipe includes: three egg whites, 50g of sugar, 10g of corn flour, your filling of choice from biscuits to chocolate, extra toppings and any flavourings you wish to add.

And to get you started, here are five of the best cloud cake recipes to try now.

Oreo cloud cake

A good place to start when it comes to creating your own cloud cake is this recipe by TikTok user @karmiccreations. The chef added Oreos (without the filling) to make her dish more rich while adding a slight crunch. She also kept extra on the side to decorate.

Funfetti Oreo cloud cake

Go one step further with your Oreo cloud cake and make it a ‘funfetti’ one. Once again the brainchild of @karmiccreations, add pink icing, crumbled Oreo and sprinkles on top.

Hello Kitty cloud cake

If you love Hello Kitty and the colour pink, then this cute cloud cake made by @euphoricluvv is for you. Using pink food colouring, a good dollop of sugar and sprinkles, this is the definition of a sweet treat.

Raisin topped cloud cake

While raisins may be a love/hate ingredient, this fluffy formula may change the minds of stringent raisin doubters. Made with vanilla extract for an even sweet hit, this would be the perfect Sunday breakfast delicacy.

Almond cloud cake

If fancy concoctions aren’t your cup of tea, this plain and simple recipe is for you. Created by @beautyhomeflour, all you need is egg whites, white vinegar and sugar. Top with almonds and powdered sugar to finish.
