Her Cakes Are Getting a Lot of Attention. Wait Until You See Why!

One of the most popular Instagram accounts in the world doesn’t belong to an actor or a pop star. It’s not the territory of a well-liked athlete, infamous reality star, or even a campaigning politician. No, it belongs to a confectioner from Ufa, Russia named Olga Noskova. Ms. Noskova makes cakes, takes pictures, and shares them, and for doing so she has over half a million followers. Why? Well, just take a look.


Olga is a master of the “mirror glaze” technique of cake decorating, a style becoming more and more popular by the minute. Her creations, though, are truly something else. We’ve seen quite a few glazed cakes, and more than a few incredibly decorated cakes, but Olga’s are on another level entirely.

It’s hard to believe, but before March 2015, Olga wasn’t a professional baker. Looking at how perfect, unique, and outright gorgeous these culinary creations are, it’s hard to believe that baking has been her career for only a little over a year.

Olga doesn’t just stick to one style, either. Though she’s known for the glazing, she also bakes other sweet treats, and her cakes come in all kinds of shapes and designs.
