Ok stupid question, just realised they're probably just coloured water right? Haha
Beautiful, thank you for sharing . Can I ask, how did you do the ice cubes? What are they made of?
Great tutorials! Love the chocolate cups, might try them out one day.
Lol I don't think you need to worry about anything. It was an April fools joke! YouTube is a multi million company it will not be shutting down.

One baker used to do 45 cakes a day he was exhausted at the end but I guess that's what you would expect for that sort of job. I stopped working this year as my uni workload has got...
If I've learnt one thing since I started making cakes, its that those that want 'free' cake don't appreciate your work or the effort that goes into making a cake. This doesn't apply to me with family as I'm a still a student so live with my family. They eat all the cake I practice on ( and can actually get sick of cake lol) but it does with friends who just want a free cake or a cake for £20.
