Man About Cake Season 1

Welcome to Man About Cake, a weekly YouTube show full of laughs… and tiers. Kick it with our Caked Crusader, Joshua John Russell.

Floral Wreath Cakes

Meet Man About Cake’s resident cake slayer, Joshua John Russell. He’s got his eye on what’s trending. First up: floral wreath cakes!

Master the paring knife as you learn to easily core a jalapeño, tomato or cauliflower and zest an orange then learn how to cut down butternut squash and pineapple as you tackle a variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs.

Edible Lace Cakes

In this episode of Man About Cake, we learn that shiny is a color, and edible lace isn’t as difficult as it looks.

Metallic Accents Cake

Guess what? You likely own everything needed to make this glamorous cake! Bust out those cutters and slay some metallic cakes with JJR.

Mirror Glaze Cakes

Ready for some sweet reflection? Joshua’s got you covered with supply picks, free recipes and a laugh-out-loud mirror glaze tutorial.

Marble Cakes

Marble cakes rock. In this episode our Cake Slayer demystifies the marbled fondant technique and constructs a fully marbleized cake (from the inside out!). If only granite had chocolate swirls like these.

Naked Cakes

Get scandalous with naked cakes. JJR bares it all and makes a rustic naked cake with flowers & a pop of pink buttercream filling.

Buttercream Flower

These buttercream flowers are ALMOST too beautiful to eat. See Joshua John Russell’s twist on this classic, using standard and Russian piping tips.

Wafer Paper Flower

Move over, sugar flowers: Joshua John Russell’s rolled wafer paper rosettes steal THIS show. See how to duplicate this light-as-air blossom on your next cake.
