For a long while, macarons in pastel hues and dainty rainbow cakes took reign on Instagram, easily garnering hundreds of likes. After all, the trend for visually stunning foods is here to stay thanks to social media aesthetics — tasting good simply isn’t enough!

These days, milkshakes, waffles and popsicles have all joined the party. Here, feast your eyes with the ones that have gone viral of late.

Benjamin Browns Bistro & Bakery’s Over The Top milkshakes

Recently, these decadent milkshakes have been all over my social media feeds with their swirly, fudgy and overall sinful vibe. Created by Benjamin Browns Bistro & Bakery, these milkshakes are aptly called ‘Over The Top’ for their extra, protruding ingredients that can range from cheesecakes to pretzels and even a cotton candy cone.

Each milkshake will set you back by $16 with flavours such as Nutella Banana, Coffee Avocado and Old School.

Flavours include Mango Sticky Rice, Rocky Road, and their latest creation, Milo Dinosaur.

Anybody who has been to Bangkok’s Chatuchak Market knows that there’s nothing better than quenching your thirst with some coconut ice cream on a hot day. Now, you can get your fix in Singapore with various specialised coconut ice cream shops popping up.

Wimi Ice Cream’s version is the most colourful of them all, with the widest variety of toppings we’ve seen, including peanuts, sweet corn, red rubies, water chestnuts, taro and even fresh pomegranate. Prices start from $4.90.

Dazzling Café’s Honey Toast

With snaking queues and plenty of hype thanks to its various celebrity ambassadors, it’s no wonder Dazzling Cafe is the talk of the town. Go on a sugar high with their signature honey toast, basically a toasted bread cube filled with mini toasted cubes, and topped with fresh fruits, custard and ice ice cream.

If you’ve been to the Dazzling Cafe in Taiwan, we suggest ordering the Mango and Coconut Gelato Honey Toast ($18.90), a flavour exclusive to Singapore.

Project Acai’s Acai Bowls

Project Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) is Singapore’s first dedicated acai superfood cafe. For the uninitiated, the acai berry is a superfood known for its antioxidant properties; taste-wise, you can liken it to a very mildly sweet berry taste.

The menu consists of both acai bowls and smoothies. Our pick is the acai bowl ($9.30, medium bowl), which comes with a heap of freshly chopped seasonal fruits, coconut, chia seeds, bee pollen, granola and more.

 Fatcat Ice cream bar’s Gourmet Charcoal Waffles

This is the strange black waffle invading everyone’s social media feeds — Fatcat Ice cream Bar’s Gourmet Charcoal Waffles with salted egg yolk custard sauce ($6 without ice cream). The waffle bears a crisp exterior, with no significant taste from the charcoal addition.

But watch the magic happen when you pour the salted egg yolk custard sauce; suddenly the creamy liu sha elevates the waffle and counters the sweetness of the ice cream.
