7 Instagram Bakers To Follow For Your Daily Dose Of Sugar
I have always had a sweet tooth, so much so I started helping out my nani whenever she used to bake. Thanks to her, I baked my first chocolate cake as a 12-year-old. Over the past few years, I’ve experimented quite a bit, mimicking internationally known bakers like Nigella Lawson. Soon, I started posting pictures on Instagram and found the best thing ever – Instagram accounts of Indian bakers!
Whenever I want to feel inspired or just want to spend my time scrolling through pretty pictures of cakes, pies, and cupcakes, I go to some of my favourite instagram accounts.
