Hellolovecrumbs is the Instagram persona of Lovecrumbs, Edinburgh's cake-only cake shop in West port, and boy do some of these featured in their regular posts make us wish we could go there more often. Plus you know, pics of red pandas in glasses and stuff.

5. cheesecakeairdrie

Where are Wimpy restaurants in Scotland and what's on the menu - including the bendy in a bun

Cheesecake don't have the greatest photography skills on this list but what they lack in camera skill, they more than make up for in awesome cakery.

Seriously, they used jammy dodgers on one of their cakec, that's genius! Plus the emoji cake has the same expression we had making this list.

6. boyseatscotland

We are big fans of boyseatscotland already, but this account cemented it for us. What's not to like? They go around Scotland, eating great food and blog about it? Sounds like a great idea.

In fact, we're jealous, and trust us, you'll be jealous too.

7. bostockbakery

Bostock bakery is probably the most classic on this list but it's classic in that effortlessly cool way that Sean Connery achieved while playing James Bond, sipping martinis and taking out bad guys. Some of the pictures on this account look so good as to be almost unreal, like they were taken in some quaint little village in 17th century France.

This account is pretty much what we imagine would be the outcome if you gave Delia Smith and Jeremy Clarkson the same camera and asked them to share. Think gear head meets cake fanatic.

Mr Trotter also combines two of our favourite things to great effect. Breaking Bad and cake. Breaking Bad cake. We'll let that settle in.

11. mimisbakehouse

Mimi's motto is “It’s all about the cake” and you can see that this mission statement is key to everything they do.

We love the use of sweets like Caramac, Yorkie and Oreos to provide inspiration for their cakes and all of them look fantastic!

'Little sister' to hellolovecrumbs, Twelve Triangles keep the formula simple - great baking with great ingredients. The kind of place we'd happily while away a morning in and probably the afternoon too.
