Tasting Table's most-loved Instagram photos of 2015

This year, we hashtagged like there was no tomorrow. We celebrated 200,000 Instagram followers and played with the new 2015 filters like kids in a toy store. You double-clicked on them—all we had to do was take the photos (and taste test, of course).

Here are the 10 most-liked posts of the year from our Instagram account.

International love (and the grand prize) goes to Toronto's Bang Bang Ice Cream, where you can get a Hong Kong egg waffle wrapped around scoops of cinnamon toast and banana crème pie ice cream.

 

Summer or not, we want to be eating this. 📷: @bigbertha03

Butter makes everything better, and chive-specked mashed potatoes are surely no exception.

We dedicate the success of this two-second video to new photo app Boomerang, but the subject matter (Levain Bakery's famous cookies) doesn't hurt.

 

Breaking up is hard to do. Except when you're a @levainbakery cookie. #ttbackstage

We had charcuterie for days (with grapes for balance) from Olympia Provisions and gave our followers the meat sweats just by scrolling through its feed.

There was a lot to celebrate at our third annual Open Market event, especially these fried chicken and glazed eggplant steamed buns from Yusho.

If you think a three-layer cake screams "celebrate," try 18 layers, held together by sweet, creamy mascarpone filling.

 

We're layering up for the winter. Thanks, 18-layer mille-crepe tiramisu cake. 📷: @areisner

We love Breads Bakery 365 days a year, but especially during the eight nights of Hanukkah, thanks to these puffy doughnuts.
