    Father’s Day is just around the corner. Can you believe it? When I thought of what to make to honour all the dads out there, I thought of Dad’s favourite things... Some peace and quiet, a newspaper, and a CUP OF COFFEE! So I took the traditional café au lait and turned it into the ultimate CAKÉ AU LAIT! I may have taken this #DadCake to the next level with the amount of coffee-related snacks and goodies stacked into it, but it was so worth it.
    Vanilla and chocolate cakes layered with vanilla, chocolate, and COFFEE buttercream with cookies, halved doughnuts, chocolate covered ESPRESSO BEANS and crushed coffee crisp in between. I topped the whole thing off with my delicious 7-minute frosting and a giant cookie. IT. WAS. DELICIOUS.

    this video makes me sad for two reasons
    first is like many other people i felt so sad when yo suddenly said that her dad is in heaven after all that stories about coffee and about how her dad used to fry buttered donuts *literally sobs*
    and second is that this cake is amazing it is big and stuffed with goodies and beautifully iced but it is a coffee cake and i hate coffee and seeing some cool food and knowing i wont like it if i taste it makes me like whyyyyyyyyy
    double sadness

    This cake looks delicious but there was no need to place inside of it all this junk. Cookies with a cake? Yuck no thank you. I would never serve such a junk bomb to my guests.
    On the good side I'm impressed by her skills and that she FINALLY cut the sponge cake in half. Full sponge cake is too fat even of you apply more buttercream it looks really really bad. Thin layers of a sponge, and lots of buttercream in between them. That will make a difference in presentation and taste

    Watching this segment in 2018 when Yo only aims for 5000 subs back then. She has 3.5M subs now! Look how far she’s been! So awesome to have seen her vids develop: Sir Squeez and Funnella was born, Walter was born, then there’s Jocelyn that we always miss, then there’s Orhan who makes girl subs go crazy! Looking forward to see more of your vids, Yo and company!
