As much as I disapprove of coloured confetti sprinkles and unicorn dusted sweet nothings. The old saying that we eat first with our eyes rings true here. The dash to document your meals (even before physically partaking in it) is a cathartic luxury that I myself indulge in most of the time. Truth be told, it is more nourishing and rewarding (in most cases) as the final product itself.
So here goes nothing, a list of some of the most instagrammable desserts for you hungry, media-centric foodies. Please feel free to gnaw at your screens.

- Matcha Avalanche | Non Entree Desserts
- Rubian Sponge Cake | Atlas Bar
For drink chasers whose bank accounts are more or less self-replenishing, there's a gleaming gem in the Gotham building that has just opened up to stupendous response. Technically a cocktail bar (and one of the best in the business), we have to give props to Atlas Bar's Executive Chef Daniele Sperindio for bringing in some amazing saccharine offerings to match the realms of pleasure spurred on by the exotic libations.
We guarantee a clash of spoons will happen over the Rubian Sponge Cake. A winsome combination of sponge, mandarin, white chocolate and dried raspberries is given a cosmopolitan twist on the plate. It's also quite the sight to behold, resembling a sexy seductress against soft lighting and marbled counter tops - quite befitting the luxe-looking bar. Dine in, and enjoy your dessert along with a beurre-noisette fuelled Bohemian Aristocrat.
- GWC (GoodWoodCoffee) Coffee Dessert | Birds of a Feather
The only thing better than having your morning cup of coffee is this chocolate brownie smothered in a steady stream of warm espresso.
The GWC coffee dessert puts the popular China-based cafe chain's signature blend to spectacular use. They buddy it up with Tahitian vanilla cream chantilly and chocolate soil seasoned with just enough salt to pique the senses. The homemade candy floss is woven like a dream around the macademia nut-studded chocolate bomb, vanishing into thin air when coffee is poured in. Definitely a home-run with coffee fiends.

- Tokyo Banana Soft Serve with Signature Mochi Donut | Brother Bird
They're not ones for understatement, the gang at Brother Bird. This is one of Singapore's most gloriously overblown dessert restaurant (over the foodies' Instagram feeds, that is), their coveted moody shadow stained realms on the second floor of their shophouse abode making for mysterious edits.
When you're not chowing down on the salted egg yolk mochi bursts, you should be cradling their newest addition of Tokyo Banana Soft Serve swirled langurously on piping hot and chewy mochi donut. Candied walnuts, banana crisp and vanilla sponge complete the package. It's a dense beast and if you had one every morning, you wouldn't live long, but there are lighter options, including the cookie butter soft serve.
