YouTube Celebration Cake – 500K Subscribers

Happy New Year! This is my first post of 2022, so I want to start by wishing you all a very happy and safe 2022. What a start to the year it has been. This week the Cakes by Lynz YouTube channel hit 500k subscribers. I am honestly blown away and I cannot thank each and everyone of you enough for following the channel and watching the videos.

I never in a million years when I uploaded my first video did I image so many of you would subscribe to the channel so thank you. To celebrate I thought it would be fun to create a YouTube themed celebration cake for this weeks video tutorial.

Let’s start with the cake!

The cake itself is a 6 inch vanilla sponge cake. I baked 1 and a half times my vanilla sponge cake recipe to give me 6x 1 inch layers of cake. The cake was filled and covered in some yummy white chocolate ganache before being covered in some white fondant.

The Decorations

Now what celebration cake would be complete without sprinkles, and one of my favourite techniques is to cover the board in sprinkles. I think it makes the board look so much fun. So for this cake I used the small ‘Pink Simplicity’ sprinkles by Happy Sprinkles.

A really easy technique but one that I find so effective is creating party streamers. For these I used Sarachino modelling paste, but you could also use fondant or gumpaste too. You just want something that will hold its shape when dry. Cut out strips and wind these around some dowels. Leave them to dry and slide them off.

As this was a cake to celebrate the YouTube channel I definitely needed to include the logo on the front. I had so much fun creating this cake and it meant so much to me that it was celebrating such a milestone.

The cake was finished off with stars up the side and ‘500K’ on the top. The toppers were cut out of more modelling paste. I see a lot people asking where to get specific cutters from, so in the tutorial I show you how you can print text from the computer, cut it out and use it as a template. I love this technique as it means you don’t have to buy lots of different cutters and you get really fun text. For my toppers I used the Google font ‘Luckiest Guy’. I laid it out in illustrator, but you could also use something like word or procreate. Any software that lets you type out letters. Then just resize them and print.

I really hope you enjoy the tutorial, and again a massive thank you to everyone who subscribes to the channel. To reach this milestone is amazing and I really hope you like the cake I created to celebrate. Even if you’re not creating a YouTube themed cake I hope you can use some of the techniques on your own cakes.
