Hi, I'm Yolanda! Some people call me the Beyoncé of cakes. I post my drool-worthy, jaw-dropping caking creations every Tuesday at 11am EST! My novelty cakes come in all shapes and sizes - giant versions of foods, gross stuff like brains, movie characters and some of my favourite things! Basically, I love to build stuff out of cake, buttercream, fondant, candy, cookies and anything sweet!
To make this delicious Half Birthday Cake I baked two of my favourites, my delicious Ultimate Chocolate Cake AND Banana Cake layered with Italian Meringue Buttercream, this time I didn’t use any fondant!
I took this opportunity to perform a super fun lip sync battle, I wanted to celebrate Half Birthdays just like Chrissy Teigan! So head out to my Instagram to watch me nailing this battle!!

I am having a greatest showman themed birthday party for my 13th birthday and wanted to make my own cake, the problem is i havent seen a "how to make a layered elephant cake" video anywhere on youtube, if you could make a red and white dyed cake and shaped + decorated as an elephant it would mean the world to me and if you cant i would apreciate if you could at the very least guide me to a how to video because i cannot for the life of me, find one thank you for taking time out of your day to read this commet! I apreciate it :) Have a nice day

    • Sorry just remembered something important! I would like it FLAT bc im only doing the head, thats why its so hard for me thanks :)

  • I love your videos so inspiring 😊🍰🍰

  • HAPPY birthday Chrissy
