Confession: I'm obsessed with watching Instagram videos every night before I go to sleep. Specifically, I find myself watching cake-decorating tutorials. There's something so soothing about watching a plain cake come to life with color and decoration. Is that weird? With each slap of the offset spatula, each drop of color stirred into the frosting, I find myself being lulled into relaxation.

Whether cakes are being spun and frosted in rainbow colors or drizzled with oozing icing, watching them be decorated definitely makes my dreams a little sweeter — here's hoping they'll do the same for you.

1. On fire


I could watch this toasted marshmallow cake get the blowtorch treatment all day.

There's something deeply satisfying about watching the piping of these rosettes.
