YouTube Cake Dessert Recipe

youtube cake recipe birthday

First there was the instagram dessert with the logo all the way through, followed by facebook, then you asked for a twitter cake. To finish off my complete set of social media desserts here’s a YouTube cake, or should I say dessert.

Did you know that 100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute?  That means in order to watch everything that’s uploaded over the next 60 seconds you’ll need to sit in front of your computer for the following four days and nights, plus a little extra.  Then to catch up on all the new videos uploaded over those four days and nights you’d need to keep watching for the next 68 years!  Let’s face it, you’ll never be able to take it all in … my recommendation is to pick a handful of favourite channels and soak them up.  I’m so glad you found How To Cook That.

  7. Hi ann..
    I love the way u have presented ur cakes and desserts in the videos..i tried out the pink ombre cake as well..u describe the toughest of cakes and methods in a very simple format thats easy to understand and execute..i have a suggestion for your website..could you please put in a slot in the navigator on homepage for the basic recipes of the different types of cakes..for eg cake recipe for a chocolate cake or a vanilla cake n so on…the basic buttercream frosting recipes were really good and it would be nice if u could something similar for the cakes as well

  8. Hi Ann! Love all your videos and I follow them religiously. My company’s anniversary is coming up and I wanted to do something similar, but company’s logo is a bit tricky to do this kind of thing. Can you suggest something else? Company logo I have attached

    • Hi Zahra, yes this is too fine to do a surprise inside, you’d need to pipe or make it out of fondant on top of a cake instead. A fondant extruder would be helpful to get nice straight lines.

  9. this is so cool… you are so smart and creative… love ya ..when you make the you tube cake my favorite channels are Nerdy Nummies, My Cupcake Addiction, and last but not least…. YOU

  10. Instead of doing a YouTube channel cake could you do a Instagram user cake please. If you do do a Instagram cake plz do my fav @e_everlark_k it is an awesome but very small hunger game fanpage
