    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!!

    My 4 year old daughter (and avid viewer of "the caker girl") was so distressed when Yolanda kept bad-mouthing her original version of this cake. She was really upset that anyone would say Yolanda didn't do a good job. She insisted that I let Yolanda know that all of her cakes are beautiful, including the half birthday cake!

    Hey Yo! You have inspired me to be a cake decorator! I am 12 and I have been watching your vids for about a year now. You are so inspiring and help me a lot in your vids. My sister's birthday is coming up and I'm going to surprise her with me baking skills!!😊. I would really like to meet you sometime. I love your videos they inspire me to be a better caker! I want you to know that you inspire a lot of people and I love what you do. I know this is crazy but I have been having trouble baking cakes and decorating. I'd like you to teach me in person!! That would be so awesome!! My family aren't really big fans of cake so I don't get to make them a lot. If you have any tips to give me then please do because I really need it. I LOVE YOU YO!!!!!!!😄😄😄😄😆😆😆😙😙😙🙂😇😍🤗😍🤗🤗😍😍😍😍

    Hey Yo, if you'll remake a cake that you're not happy with then you should remake the giant pencil because you did put 8 sides instead of 6. (You did say it would haunt you in that episode!)
