20 Queer Bakers To Follow on Instagram

Feature image via Disco Cherry Bakery’s InstagramRecently, I put together a super rad list of queer florists and queer-owned flower shops. Now it’s time for queer bakers/bakeries! Fill your Instagram feed with allllllll the pastries, breads, and sweet treats. While I love to cook, baking is difficult for me!!!!! But that’s why I love to watch the pros do it. Follow these queer bakers for some baking inspiration of your own or find out where you’re getting your next batch of themed cookies (all themed parties should have matching themed cookies imo). Some only sell where they’re based, but some ship their products! This list focuses on smaller operations rather than bigger pastry shops. This list also features several homebakers — some who accept orders, and some who just post tips and recipes if you want to work on your own skills!

  1. there’s this great baker on instagram who’s queer and i think POC, and makes these dreamy cakes with heaps of different flavours (like tamarind and oolong) and like, very brightly coloured swirly wiggles of buttercream icecream. i’ve just spent ages trying to find them on insta and cannot – maybe they’ve deactivated their account?? anyway this is the most useless comment ever hahahahaahaha but i just wanted to chip in

  2. Nachdem Sie Ihr bevorzugtes Instagram-Profilbild ausgewählt haben, müssen Sie ihn herunterladen. Nach dem Herunterladen müssen Sie eine App installieren, mit der Sie das Profilbild vergrößern können. Dann können Sie es mit der echten Sache mit demselben Namen vergleichen.

  3. Ein Profilbild kann einfach durch Klicken auf die Zoom-Schaltfläche erstellt werden, um eine Ansicht in voller Auflösung zu erhalten. Sie können dann das Zoom-Profilbild von Instagram anzeigen und es kneifen, um das Profilbild klar zu sehen.
