If you spend much of your days endlessly scrolling through social media, then you’ve probably oohed and aahed over tons of photos of various desserts on Instagram. (Spoiler alert: I’m guilty of this, too!) The best part? We don’t need to just keep daydreaming of these delectable treats — we can order them and have them delivered straight to our homes!
From melt-in-your-mouth cheesecakes to ooey gooey cookies and chocolate cakes, here’s a list of desserts on Instagram you’ll definitely want to try for yourself:
Mouth-watering desserts we’ve been seeing all over Instagram
1. Basque burnt cheesecake from Decadenza Baking

I started with just one thing on the menu. One size, one kind of cake, no brand. Since then, Decadenza came to life, and I added a smoler size to make more people even happier! Here’s our 7-inch BBC. We’ll be coming out with more kinds of yummies sooner than u think. 😯 Photo by @carapaguio 💖
A level up from your ordinary cheesecake, this Spanish dessert is lighter, creamier, and crustless — perfect for those who usually find themselves wishing for more cheese and less crust. Decadenza Baking’s basque burnt cheesecake offers the perfect balance of flavour, with its burnt, caramelised top and creamy filling. Once you take your first bite, you’ll understand just why it’s been one of the best-loved desserts on Instagram these past few months!
Decadenza’s cakes are available in 7-inch and 9-inch sizes. Can’t handle commitment? Opt for their mini basque burnt cheesecakes, a.k.a. chupcakes — no sharing required! (You’ll want them all to yourself, anyway.)

2. Ube white chunk cookies from Mad Batter Co.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned during quarantine, it’s that everyone goes crazy for ube-flavoured treats. Besides all the different kinds of ube cheese pandesal being sold on Instagram, Mad Batter Co.’s ube white chunk cookies deserve just as much (if not more) of your attention!
These chewy, melt-in-your-mouth cookies are loaded with chunks of ube halaya and white chocolate — a perfect pairing we never even knew we needed. Choose between a box of six or a box of 12, and get them delivered to your doorstep while they’re still warm from the oven. (*Drooling.*) Prepare to discover just what ube-filled dreams are actually made of!

3. Carrot cake from The Good Carrot
Know what’s even more satisfying than buying yourself a beautifully made cake? Taking a bite and discovering that it’s just as good as it looks! We love that The Good Carrot’s carrot cake is less sinful than your average dessert, plus that each and every bite is absolutely moist (and topped with delicious cream cheese frosting).
Take your pick between their 5-inch, 7-inch, or 9-inch cakes — or opt for their carrot cupcakes! The cupcakes are available in boxes of four or six. Whatever you choose, trust that they’ll be wiped out before you know it!

Leche flan and cheesecake: delectable on their own, and even more scrumptious together. Who knew they were a match made in heaven, right? We have Nikita’s Pastries to thank for the genius innovation that is lecheesecake — a combination of decadent cheesecake and some of the creamiest leche flan you’ll ever have. Without question, it’s one of the most unique (and tempting) desserts we’ve discovered on Instagram.
Nikita’s Pastries’ lecheesecake cups are perfect for gifting to your loved ones on special occasions — or, you know, just for merienda. Get them in boxes of six or 12. They’ll go perfectly well with your afternoon coffee!
