Baking Instamums we love
Get your cake fix and give these brilliant mums posting their culinary concoctions on Instagram a follow, says Katherine Price
If the stunning shots of London and Venice aren't enough to warrant a follow, Skye's beautiful rustic food shots certainly are. As well as the occasional shot of two-year-old Aeneas in the two beautiful cities they call home, Skye whips up everything from comforting pumpkin soup with homemade bread to Italian-inspired masterpieces (her honey, ginger and salted almond semifreddo has us drooling).
Food stylist, recipe writer and mum to Otto Kate cooks up fresh produce into the most beautiful family-feeding dishes. Hazelnut ice-cream, yellow tomato gazpacho, fresh warm pain au chocolate – what we wouldn't give to live in that household!
With three small male mouths to feed, you'd think Holly had enough on her plate – but she's also an author, blogger, ex-midwife and a Great British Bake-Off finalist. We love a lady who cries over macarons and reads cookbooks in bed with a glass of wine. And we love them even more when they post such adorable home life pictures accompanied with such delicious-looking food (hell-o popcorn caramel cheesecake!).
I have friends coming over for brunch so I made many pounds of bacon and fresh cinnamon rolls. I guess I must REALLY like these people. They must be really awesome people whom I either want to impress or just love THAT much. Um... Upon further contemplation I realize that I just really wanted bacon. #bacon #baconbaconbacon
I am baker
As well as running her baking blog and being mum to five children, Amanda is the author of Surprise-Inside cakes (check out her Instagram to see them!). She 'grams gorgeous pictures of gloriously buttercream-frosted goodness with hilarious anecdotes of being a mum and words of wisdom. Remember, if you don't cut the cheesecake and just eat the whole thing with a fork you still only had one piece. Amen to that.
As part of the Great Bloggers Bake Off, Jenny has been cooking up Maltesers and Baileys biscotti, chocolate orange clafoutis, Oreo cheesecake, banana loaf with Snickers glaze... we dare your mouth not to water. She's even getting her adorable little boys involved, which we love.
Ever wondered what happened to Chetna from Bake-Off last season? She's still baking away and posting shots of her culinary adventures and the amazing cakes she makes for her lucky little boy on her Instagram page. Make sure you check out the Batman Minion she made – just don't show the children or risk some serious cake envy.
We love any woman who agrees that a five-minute mug cake is legit baking and recognises breakfast cake is a thing. But seriously, Sarah concocts some amazing cakey creations and family meals in between Instagramming pictures of her gorgeous twins.
