I love this surprisingly easy cake design because it makes it simple to customize for birthdays, special occasions, and any party theme!

Choose your drip flavor and combine all ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl.


Caramel and Chocolate Drip can be heated at full power, but always heat white chocolate drip at 50% power.


Heat in the microwave at 20 to 30-second increments, stirring for at least 30 seconds to one minute after each heat.


Switch to a whisk once the chips/bits are mostly melted. Lots of whisking will help the dip melt faster and prevent overcooking.


Drizzle the melted ganache or caramel drip down the sides of your cake using a squeeze bottle.
