I have a fun and helpful interview for you guys today, thanks to my friend, Vero! She is a very popular YouTuber because of her talent for decorating amazing cakes. She wrote me to tell me about her recent creation – a Coco-inspired cake! She decorated the top to look like a skeleton version of Miguel, the main character from the movie!
First I’ll share her video tutorial, and then her tips to help you with your cake baking and decorating endeavors! I really love how she not only breaks it down step-by-step but also chats in corner of the screen. I feel like we are getting to know her, as well as her skills!

Vero, how did you get into baking and decorating cakes?
I started when my son turned 2, I wanted to make him a Lighting McQueen cake so badly that I asked a pastry chef friend to make it for me, she said no, instead she taught me to make it and I fell in love with cake decorating. Plus my son’s emotional reaction was unforgivable!
What are some tips for newbies to this edible art form?
