Animators like JustRyann, hoppip, and dvdp, in particular, posted some eye-catching GIFs while one animator left us licking our lips.

It ‘s from gifmovie of Belgrade and features a bubbling pan of baklava that rises as some sort of liquid is poured on top. The GIF has collected more than 1,700 likes, reblogs, and comments.
