Please Refrain from Instagramming This Instagram Cake [Video]

instagram-cake

Excuse me waiter, there’s some Instagram in my cake.

This is possibly the most creative and labor intensive dessert I’ve seen. This cake is made from rainbow jelly, chocolate mousse, cake and chocolate glaze all carefully layered together to recreate everyone’s favorite social media obsession. The whole process takes a few hours since you’re constantly building, freezing and piecing things together but the final product is sure to surprise your party guests.

The good news is that if you actually pull this thing off it would make a pretty sweet Instagram post.
