Seeing as I am on vacation right now, I have an awful lot of free time on my hands. I’m at my grandma’s place, which means I can’t spend all day outside playing bizarre games and a whole lot of football with my friends. Because they’re in a different city.
That means, that my YouTube obsession has increased, and I didn’t even know that was possible. The only one that watches TV in our house is my dad, my mom and I find YouTube way more interesting. Of course, the occasional ‘Iron Man’ screening or ‘Big Bang Theory’ episode draws me to the television, but mostly, there’s just NOTHING on TV.
I watch YouTube for a bunch of reasons. Comedy, education (I’ll be posting about that one soon), clips from Jimmy Fallon and Ellen, hair, BookTube, and a whole lot of other random channels too. But mostly, I watch for the FoodTubers. More specifically, the baking and dessert FoodTubers.
So today, I’m going to tell you my go-to channels, when I want to watch other people make beautiful desserts. Let’s go!
- Nerdy Nummies by Rosanna Pansino
Nerdy Nummies is a show I’ve been watching right from 2012! Rosanna Pansino makes geeky themed treats twice a week (I think), and they range right from cakes and cupcakes to mousse, cake pops, fudges, bars, Rice Krispy-Treats and more! Usually, the treats are based on famous book, movie, or TV show characters. and they are WAY TOO CUTE! She makes the recipes really simple, and her charisma makes the videos so entertaining to watch. Rosanna is so goofy and hilarious, and her show has become crazy successful only because of all her hard work. Among her many achievements, she recently launched her own Nerdy Nummies cookbook (which I am dying to buy) and a personal line of baking products in collaboration with Wilton! It’s just such a good show, and all the treats are actually really convenient and easy to make.

2. The Scran Line by Nick Whose Surname I Do Not Know 🙂
Can I just say, this is one of the most visually pleasing channels ever to exist on YouTube, if you didn’t guess already by looking at that beautiful collage of cupcakes above. Nick takes his experience as a professional pastry chef and turns it into the most uniquely flavoured cakes, cupcakes and macarons ever. He has a special love for macarons, and that’s good for me, because I literally cannot get enough of those videos. One part I love about his videos is that he prepares these treats in a very non-traditional way. For example, he doesn’t cream the butter and sugar first when making cupcakes (mind blown) ! The good thing about this is that you learn a lot about dessert-making, and different ways of doing things. Nick is so dedicated to his fans, and that shows in the long intro at the beginning of all his videos, where he likes to just chat with his viewers. I truly think The Scran Line should be WAY more popular, it’s one of the best channels ever. You can help get Nick to 1 million subs by clicking the link over here https://www.youtube.com/user/thescranline and subscribing 🙂 !
3. How To Cook That by Ann Reardon
Ann Reardon is another professional pastry chef who uses her expertise to make very fancy-looking desserts on YouTube. She is just so……PROFESSIONAL! Honestly, I’ve never attempted to recreate any of her creations, because aren’t really meant for the amateur cook. I just really enjoy watching her videos because she’s really experienced and there’s a lot to learn from her. Please go and visit her channel here 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/user/howtocookthat
4. Laura In The Kitchen by Laura Vitale
Ahhhhh this woman I LOVE HERRR!! Ahem. Sorry about that. Now that I have regained my composure (lol don’t bet on it 😉 ), Laura Vitale is an incredibly successful, self-trained chef who makes life so much easier for the home cook with her easy-to-follow recipes. She is well-versed in both savoury and sweet dishes, and I have tried out several of her dessert recipes. Not one of them has EVER let me down. Wednesdays’ post will be about one of my favourite recipes of hers 🙂 . She is doing so well for herself, and it’s even been a while since she released her own cookbook! Go show her some love by visiting her channel https://www.youtube.com/user/howtocookthat !
I hope you liked this post, and that you’ll give these FoodTubers a go! They have played a huge role in feeding my passion for food.
Stay tuned for more posts! Thanks for reading 🙂
