    Sugar and spice and everything nice — meringue kisses, fairy floss, buttercream icing, chocolate ganache, crystallized flowers, raspberry macaroons — that’s what Georgia’s Cakes are made of. “More is more,” says Georgia Green (@georgiascakes), the 25-year-old baker churning out decadent, drool-worthy cakes in her London kitchen. “My cakes may look perfect, but if you smudge a bit of icing, stick some popcorn on it!” Working in a cafe upon her Le Cordon Bleu graduation, Georgia was commissioned to bake a cake for a high-profile client and realized she could strike out on her own. Now, she’s her sole employee, whipping up every single topping, batch of frosting and layer of cake herself. Swipe left on this post to see more of Georgia’s over-the-top cakes.

    Surprise! 🎉 Swipe left on the post above to see more. Starting today, you can share up to 10 photos and videos in one post on Instagram. With this update, you no longer have to choose the single best photo or video from an experience you want to remember. When uploading to your feed, you’ll see a new icon to select multiple photos and videos. It’s easy to control exactly how your post will look. You can tap and hold to change the order, apply a filter to everything at once or edit one by one. These posts have a single caption and are square-only for now. On a profile grid, you’ll notice the first photo or video of a post has a little icon, which means there’s more to see. And in feed, you’ll see blue dots at the bottom of these posts to let you know you can swipe to see more. You can like and comment on them just like a regular post. This update is available as part of Instagram version 10.9 for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android on Google Play. To learn more, check out help.instagram.com.

    Last weekend, 17-year-old Hannah Barker (@nxtures) traveled from Essex to Margate, England, to attend Geek 2017 — a three-day gaming festival for all ages. For Hannah, a student and part-time Disney princess, work and play don’t look much different: “The cosplay masquerade was the highlight for me,” she says of the event, which housed retro games, virtual reality and more inside Dreamland, an amusement park that dates back to the 1800s. “I dressed up as Rapunzel. It’s the first costume I ever made myself. I’ve added lights and 1,000 rhinestones to the skirt by hand. Eventually, my dream is to design costumes for Disneyland.” Check out our story to see more of Hannah’s time at Geek 2017.

    This week was sentimental for friends Akihito Nagata (@abu888) and Yurie (@yuuuuuriiie), who began collaborating after they met on Instagram, because Yurie will be moving to Tokyo. “I love this circular window,” says Akihito. “It perfectly frames the cityscape of Osaka and the backlight creates solid silhouettes.” #TheWeekOnInstagram Photo of @yuuuuuriiie by @abu888

    A self-described “crafty gal,” Holly Fox (@hol_fox) always had a project. She bejeweled pumpkins, built gingerbread houses — and then she shifted her focus to cookies when she realized royal icing mixed just like paint. “I’m constantly thinking about composition and color,” says Los Angeles-based Holly, who became a graphic designer straight out of college. “My styling and cookie shapes reflect my graphic design style — nice and tidy. I’ve really tried to make colorful and clean my signature style!” She started posting sets of cookies three years ago and, according to Holly, she hasn’t slept since. 😉 #MadeToCreate Watch our Instagram story to see Holly bake and decorate a batch of these beauties.
