Korean design is well known for being simple, clean, and elegant. These characteristics transcend to the way they do their makeup, the way they dress, and even the way they bake their cakes.
Korean cakes are often cylinder-shaped with pastel or muted colors and minimal decorations. Sometimes, they even have beautifully painted artworks on top! Let’s check out a couple of local bakers that can fulfill our Korean cake dreams.
