No matter how freewheeling your food philosophy might be, chances are you'd feel funny about eating dessert all day long. So here's the next best thing: Follow these 5 sweets-centric Instagram feeds, and gorge on the most gorgeous cakes, pastries and sweets from morning to night—vicariously, sure—then track down these pastry chefs' shops and cookbooks so you can feast on the most tempting treats IRL.
Star chocolatier Jacques Torres's Instagram feed is filled with chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate—in its many glorious forms including Nutella banana crepes, cookies, truffles, ice cream, and we could go on. (Bonus: A few pics of Torres's adorable baby son Pierre, "#MyLittleBonbon.")
The Milk Bar pastry chef of Crack Pie, cereal-milk ice cream and custom birthday cake fame fills her Instagram with all of the above, and so much more. But that birthday cake stops us in our tracks every time.
Do perfect pastries ever remind you of a luxe pair of shoes? They will now, once you check out how Paris-based pastry chef Tal Spiegel's Instagram feed arranges the sweets she makes and finds next to a pair matching shoes, as in this blueberry cake from Boulangerie Utopie alongside blue shoes that would make Elvis jealous. Odd, sure, but oddly compelling.
Food blogger Naomi Robinson's moody dessert shots definitely put us in the mood—for more (and more) dessert. Tempted by this image of her Slutty Cheesecake Bars? Check out the recipe on her blog, and look out for her new cookbook, on the way in 2017.
The name says it all: You will find cakes on @thecakeblog's Instagram: many, many cakes. Big cakes, small cakes, red cakes, yellow cakes, pink cakes, and chocolate-bourbon cakes, like the one above. Like? Find the recipe on the Cake Blog.
