    Hey Joshua,
    What would your advice be to a aspiring cake business owner be?
    I have a small business, but I would like to grow it into a full-time thing.

  2. So cute! What a fun video.

  3. I gotta agree with JJR. Being an uncle is so much better than being a parent. It's all the perks of being a grandparent without the effort and expense of raising your own kid first.

  4. "Not today Satan!!" 😂😂😂

  5. When y'all were saying snow, I was saying coke

  6. Is that a new tattoo?

  7. Actual uncle goals

  8. Super cute nephews….

  9. His tattoo keeps growing with every video

  10. Banjo Balkaran

    Your sister looks great for 40! Damn! And the cakee 😍😍

  11. can you replicate the wedding cake of prince harry and megan?? like of you agree!!!

  12. Have you ever dropped a cake on camera

  13. Your supposed to cut them at a angel ughgggg

  14. I feel like with the Q&A portion you need to clarify that the cakes still have boards under each tier. Maybe they asked the question thinking that there are no boards and you use the straws to keep the tiers in place — rather than using the straws as structure so the cake doesn't crush itself.

  15. EclecticNostalgia

    I caught that Biance Del Rio reference!!!

  16. Pokeasaurous Rex

    I would love to see you collab with How To Cake It

  17. Summer Chrismon


  18. Sevana Templeton

    You should do a baby groot cake!!! I think it would be really cool

  19. there are people who eats spam straight from a can? we slice it and fry it and eat it with fried egg and fried rice.

  20. EclecticNostalgia

    Your sister looks like she should be celebrating her 30th birthday, not 40th!

  21. Danielle Zepess

    Sorry for the shouting, but THIS CAKE LOOKS AMAZING!!! I love all of the colors & textures, and Brody & Cooper did a fantastic job helping out. No doubt it tastes as delicious as it looks. Happy 40th, Wendy!

  22. “So that’s what Brandon looks like” best line but you’re teasing us so bad. Love you guys. Happy 40th Wendy 🎉

  23. Michelle Santos

    I'm curious why JJR pannelled the round cake.. Not covered it with fondant the texture if after…

  24. Vodka! Holy shot that’s strong for a first time…well unless it’s not IDK IM ONLY TURNING 15

  25. Maddie & Mommy Crafts

    You should make a cake that looks like you

  26. “Uncle Josh’s breath smells like air brush” 😂😂

  27. Kayleigh Skutnik
