This Bakery’s Instagram Is The Most Soothing Thing On The Damn Internet

I’m often in a bad mood.

Omg I know how fun I sound but no, I do not want to be friends because, like I said, I’m often in a bad mood.

I don’t know exactly when I became the person who walks around with a perpetual case of RBF and a metaphorical thundercloud above my head, but here we are. And due to my constant state of “ugghhhhhh” I’m honestly easily annoyed. I used to have more of a temper but thanks to things like self-awareness and Lexapro, that’s way more under control than it was circa 2008.

But my annoyance level? Oh it can go from 2 to 12,002 in about 2 seconds, you feel me?

But it’s not fair to unleash my fury and scream all of the time just because I happen to be the Negative Nancy in the room.

So what do I do when I’m feeling horribly annoyed and just need a minute?

Enter Hayleycakes And Cookies

Hayleycakes and Cookies is a bakery located in Austin, Texas. And her magical little shop, specifically her stunning Instagram dedicated to their shop, has taken the internet by storm.

Why? Because her video posts of icing her creations are soothing 👏 as 👏 hell. 👏

Don’t believe me? Take a look.

I’m obsessed.

Like watch them for hours obsessed.

Show them to everyone I know, obsessed.

Write an article on the internet about them, obsessed.

As I am in Seattle and not Austin, I can’t speak to how delicious they are, though I have no doubts that the taste would live up to the hype.

But regardless, I’m very into how relaxing watching a perfectly iced cookie be crafted is.

On behalf of me and my temper, thank you, Haleycakes and Cookies. Jacob Geers who often trolls me and asks me the meaning of life at inopportune times also thanks you. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
