The 2020 coffee trends have been a blast for the coffee enthusiast as there are lots of creative innovations coming through. It was since most of the people have stayed at home for a while due to the pandemic.
Recently on the famous short-video app, TikTok, a beautifully made Latte with edible floral ice cubes flourished. It is also trending on Instagram because of its picturesque feature.
The encouraging Latte was innovated by a Hong Kong influencer, Samantha Wong, who owned the blog, Sam is Home.
Most of her TikTok posts and videos are about extra unique coffee innovations that you could not simply buy in your local cafe’s. Dalgona coffee has been trending since the start of the year, which invited people to create their own version of the coffee concoction.
Samantha Wong did not let the Dalgona craze just passed by and created her cloud jelly Dalgona Latte that you can be mistaken for a piece of edible bluish sky.
In addition to Hong Kong-based Samanta Wong’s creation are her whipped taro milk and strawberry coffee. And now, her latest coffee with edible floral ice cubes has made her fans and millions of people want to try it out too.

Based on her posts, the flowery-latte was inspired by other TikTok user Imy1311, who previously tried out baking flowers in her cookies. However, it turned out to be a failed attempt, but Samantha Wong was brightened up with the vlogger’s idea and thought of including it in her next coffee creation.
If you are a coffee enthusiast and you also love flowers, you can also try the hot coffee trend right now. All you need is an ice tray, water, your coffee, and the main ingredient, edible flowers. You can buy varieties of edible flowers like Wong made in her version to make it colorful.
The first thing that you need to do is to make the floral ice cubes by placing the flowers in the ice tray, add water and freeze it. You can clip the petals as Samantha made in her video or freeze it whole, depends on your preference. Play along with the varieties of flowers by putting different flowers in each cube.
After you’ve made the ice cubes, you can now place some of the cubes in a glass and add your mixture of latte. You can also use the floral cubes on other beverages such as your iced tea or just your water to make it special.
