We Found The Best Cupcakes in Melbourne

Melbourne’s most photogenic desserts for your Instagram feed!

Have your camera handy!


We eat with our eyes and there’s no short supply of beautifully plated, colourful dishes in Melbourne. Gone are the days where a humble slice of cake sufficed for dessert, replaced by the likes of fairy floss clouds, Nutella syringes and ice cream burgers.

These are the dishes that are so photogenic, you can’t help but snap a photo before you dig in! They’re worthy of a post on your Instagram, if not a permanent exhibition at the National Gallery!

Take a look at our Most Instagrammable Desserts list and go try them, but not before taking a photo, of course!
