    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!!
