pinterest cakes

Where do you get your baking inspiration from? Cookbooks? TV shows? Internet? If you’re like most of us, you’re probably scanning Pinterest on weekly basis trying to find out what you’re going to cook or bake that week.

Pinterest is overflowing with amazing cake creations, some easier replicate than others. Unless you are a baker by profession, trying to recreate some of these state of art desserts will just result in frustration and despair. Luckily there is the rest, which even someone with zero skills can easily pull off.

Ever wondered which cakes get the most attention in Pinterest? We have geared up to answer that question.

We looked at the number of repins each cake got, based on the keyword “cake” and here are the results! (PS: They are not ordered by the number of repins)
