But no baking required—because baking is hard.
We know just the thing to give your follower count a rise. A feed full of perky popovers, cookies almost too cute to eat, and other cookies (so many cookies), is just what you need to start raking in the hearts. The problem is, perfectly swirled cinnamon rolls are a lot harder to slap together than avocado toast. So in order to help you look like the baking queen you want to portray, we’ve rounded up a golden quintet, complete with sample captions, for you to post. No need to give photo credit—just go forth and watch your follower count climb!
1. Cinnamon Rolls
We understand that waiting for dough to rise is v boring, so boom—this money shot will reveal both "your" baking prowess and the fact that you do not shy away from frosting (so chill).
This micro-lattice not only screams "I slay", but also, "I think your mom will like me". It's the perfect thing to post on Tuesday—instead of actually rolling the dough yourself, duh.
3. Fancy Cake
If you want to be showered with comments that have absolutely nothing to do with you, like: "For your birthday! @cakegirl05" and: "See! Ombre is still in @tehranosarusrex," this is the post for you. You will get so many notifications your phone will probably go up in flames (like your oven, the last time you tried to use it).
4. Chocolate Chip Cookies
Rather than waste your weekends elbow-deep in butter, we offer you this classic photo. If you want to melt into those chocolate chips rn, so will your followers.
We're all looking for that Sunday kind of love, but in the meantime there's brunch—which turns out to be the best way to disclose your relationship status. If you're waking up solo, a caption along the lines of "tbh waffles are my boyfriend" will show the world you're chill AF. If you're with someone, remind everyone. "@mysignificantother made these this morning. #blessed" should do.
So there you have it, 5 insta-perfect shots, ready for their close ups! If you want to #livealittlemoreauthentic, just crop. And finally, remember that if you didn't 'gram it, it didn't happen.
