20,000 YouTube Subscribers

Wow! what a milestone to hit yesterday. I am so excited and can’t actually quite believe that the Cakes by Lynz YouTube Channel has reached over 20,000 subscribers. I just want to thank everyone so much for watching the video tutorials that I have made and I really hope that you enjoy them and there is something that you can take away with you to add to your own cake making experience.

When I first started making cakes, I watched so many YouTube videos to find out ways to do things and pick up little tips, and the videos really helped me. A few years ago I was thinking about all the videos I had watched, and I really wanted to give something back and add to those. Showing all the little things I had learnt along the way and different techniques I used. Its really lovely to get everyone’s positive feedback, (ok sometimes there is a little bit of negative too!) but I am so glad that people seem to enjoy them.

I really would love to know if there are any types of videos that you would like to see, currently there are cupcake videos, basic technique videos, sugar flower videos and modelling videos.

Thank you so much to everyone for helping me reach this amazing milestone and I really hope that you continue to enjoy the video tutorials that I make. Oh and yes if any of you are wondering, I did sit there clicking refresh a few hundred times to get the image above exactly on 20,000! (lol)

My Cupcake Piping Techniques

One of my favourite things to make are cupcakes and I just love adding the buttercream swirls to the top. I thought I would put a video together showing my four favourite, and most used icing tips/nozzles and the techniques that I use to make the swirls.



In this video tutorial I show you how I use the Wilton 1M tip to create a classic ‘icecream’ swirl. The Wilton 2D to create a pretty rose cupcake, and two of my other favourites which create a smooth round swirl and a ruffle swirl.

I really hope you enjoy this video tutorial. If you do please subscribe to my YouTube channel. Also I would love to hear what you think, if you have any comments or questions please just let me know.

Postman Pat Cake Topper Tutorial

This is a video tutorial I have been wanting to make for ages, to share with you. Postman Pat is one of my favourite figures to make. I think he’s one of those characters that brings back memories of childhood no matter what generation you were born in. I mean who doesn’t know the Postman Pat theme song, or remember him driving through Greendale with Jess beside him.

In this video tutorial I show you step by step how I create the Postman Pat character to go on top of a child’s birthday cake. I really hope you enjoy this video tutorial and I hope this helps with your own Postman Pat creations.
