These Realistic Cake Videos Are Deliciously Hypnotizing

You won't believe they're cakes!

I have insomnia, so I find myself glued to my phone in bed at night watching hypnotizing food videos. My favorites are from How to Cake It, a cake blog by Canadian baker Yolanda Gampp.

Yolanda is regular guest on baking competitions like Cake Wars, Nailed It and Sugar Showdown, and is renowned for her carving tricks and expert fondant techniques to create amazingly realistic cakes. Her videos are well-produced and fun to watch (she takes a bite out of each masterpiece at the end!), plus she shares all her recipes so you can try them for yourself if you’re up for the challenge. And if you want to learn even more pro baking pointers, you can sign up for Yolanda’s Baking Program or Live Tutorials.

Here are some of my favorite videos from How to Cake It, but head over to Yolanda’s Youtube channel for more incredible cake videos.

1. A Giant Crab Cake

4. World’s Biggest Wendy’s Frosty
