Man About Cake Season 5

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

Release the Choctopus

What do you call an octopus made of modeling chocolate? A choctopus, silly! Well, that or “Joshua’s signature design.” He’s here to break it down with a cake that both crustaceans and critics are giving eight tentacles up.

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.

Americana Cake

How do you celebrate America? In red, white and buttercream! JJR’s got just the cake, complete with a blue- and red-velvet interior, retro Americana design and, you guessed it, even a touch of pyrotechnics. Save a slice for Lady Liberty.

Pop (T)art Cake

What happens when pop tart meets pop art? A Man About Cake episode, naturally. Tune in as JJR creates a pop-art inspired cake full on fun 3-D effects and, yes, crushed pop tarts between layers of jam filling. (We swear we didn’t raid a college pantry to make this thing.)

Not Game of Thrones Cake

This is definitely not a cake about that one show. You know, that show with the dragons… and all the winter? That one everyone seems to be into? Nope, definitely not a cake inspired by that. (But just between us, if you’re into that show, you should probably tune in.)

Henna Cake

Laverne had Shirley. Butch Cassidy had the Sundance Kid. Let’s face it, it’s pretty great having a partner in crime, but it’s even sweeter when it’s Amber from SweetAmbs Cookies! Tune in as Joshua tats up the henna cake, Amber’s makin’ cookies to match.

Cherry Buttercream Cake

Ever wanted to wrap your cakes in retro fabric? Yeah, neither have we. But this retro cherry design that’s inspired by fabric… that’s a whole different story. Look out world, JJR’s kickin’ it old school (right in the cherries).

Couture Fashion Cake

Wild things happen when steampunk squares off with the world of couture… like Alexander-McQueen-inspired cakes with sculpted brass-knuckle toppers. Yeah, we went there; join us.

Beach Wedding (Oyster) Cake

The perfect wedding cake can be a real beach. But our resident cake slayer has you covered with a sweet beach-themed wedding cake, including a crazy-cool technique for making modeling-chocolate oysters. Give it a try! The world is your, well… you know the rest.

    Not sure how Craftsy expects to compete with these child like amateur recipes. Using cups and teaspoons is like playing in the sandbox. Butter Book not only takes online teaching to the next level, but it does it CORRECTLY by teaching in metric weight. If Craftsy expects to compete in the world of online baking, it needs to use professional standards, not this childplays.
