Debunking Viral Tik Tok Videos


In this episode I am debunking viral videos from Tik Tok, facebook and youtube. There continues to be a meteoric rise in the amount of ‘fake’ content surrounding the topic of food. Perhaps because food is easily accessible and relatively low cost for most content producers. It is important to educate young people how to check if a source is reputable. Misinformation can be donagerous and one hack in this video could make you very sick. We will explore can you safely cook steak in a toaster? Do razor blades dice strawberries? If you put strawberries in a jar do they last longer? Does Pepsi make worms come out of pork? Are there parasites in pork? How to best to make hard sugar numbers for on top of a cake and more.

Of course Dave will get to taste test a recipe or two.

    I pre-ordered the day you announced it in your video. I’m not the best baker but its so much fun to try and if it doesn’t look perfect it will still taste good. Spent 3 days baking for Easter. My neighbors loved it. I did keep a little…lol.

    • Easter bake sounds amazing Christi, thanks for preordering.

    Excited to get the book, I pre-ordered this morning. My son has been interested in baking for years, since we first let him smash breadcrumbs up, but we’ve been using our time at home this past year to really experiment in the kitchen. He loves reading cookbooks and watching cooking shows and your YouTube channel. We’re looking forward to trying out the recipes 🙂

    • awesome, thanks Sarah

    I pre-ordered your book so that my mother and I can try out some of the recipes together when I go up to see her the next time. we don’t get to spend enough quality time together because she lives so far away , it’s about a 2 hour drive from me. if she likes the book, as much as I’m sure I will, then I will give it to her as a gift and Order myself a second one. I am so proud of you and everything you have accomplished. thank you so much!

    • What a wonderful idea Mikka, I hope you make lovely memories baking together

    I appreciate you and your willingness to make sure we do it correctly – no matter what it is! Every baker/cook has a recipe that they hold on to – they don’t give the recipe out to anyone. You, however, share every secret you discover! Thank you for keeping us safe and making us happy! I can’t wait to receive your book upon its release. This is the first item I’ve pre-ordered and I know the wait will be worth it!

    With gratitude for all you (and your family) do,
    Cindy Semrau
    P.S. Your husband is so brave to try out all the things you know won’t work!

    • thanks so much Cindy, seriously makes me so tearful reading all these lovely comments

    Love the video and the book is looking really cool!
    However, not to be that guy but gambling laws in the US and in most other countries actually make giveaways like this where you are requiring a purchase are actually illegal. I’m not a lawyer, but I do know that you must have an option to enter without a purchase for this to not violate the FTC guidelines in the US (and regardless of whether or not your purchased cannot affect your odds of winning either). Just a friendly heads up, again I’m not a lawyer, you should always do your own research!

      It may be different in Australia, but checking the legality might be a good idea.

      • It’s the same worldwide, that is why it is judged on the 25 words or less answer. It is not a random draw – if it was based on chance it would be a lottery even if it was free to enter.

    • I was wondering that too, but she seems to have avoided that by making it a competition, not a drawing or raffle. On the terms page: “The competition is based on the best answer [–] chance plays no part in determining the winners.” No gambling involved.

      • That’s correct Max 😀

    • G’day Evan, thanks for the heads up, I’ll double check. Advice we received is that because it is not a ‘game of chance’ ie winners are decided on the best answer, it does not come under a lottery. The same as paying an entry fee into a photography or other competition is not a lottery.

    Hi Ann,
    I’ve just ordered your book from Amazon 😊. I’m looking really forward to reading it and finding new favourite recipes. I’ve already made your sugar bowls for a friend’s backyard wedding. I put lolly snakes in them. They were lots of fun to make – even though one balloon did pop from the heat of the sugar mixture as I had accidentally left an air bubble in the balloon. We still used it – it was the one with an even more unique look than the rest.
    Thank you for all your Youtube videos, and I can’t wait to get your book 😃

    • Awesome Rhiannan, I love the look of the sugar bowls

    I like your debunking videos and all your how to make desserts, but my favorite video so far is still when you unboxed kitchen gadgets and made that cute sushi animal! It just made me happy to watch both you and Dave interact.

    • thanks Ines

    I wanted to buy your cook book any way. Because you are one of my favorite chefs on youtube. You and Andrew Rea. I have his cook book too. I went to culinary school but still love seeing other peoples recipes. I have not been able live my dream of being a chef because of my disability. Also, i have bilateral renal blood clots. They cause me to have bad back pain. so i cant move around a well enough. But when i am in my little kitchen just cooking the world fades away. It is just me and my food.

    • So sorry to hear of your kidney issues Maria, sounds horribly painful. I hope they can sort it out for you so you can pursue your passion for work as well as pleasure.
