I was really hoping she’d add a bit of purple food coloring to make the cream white instead of yellow...but that’s just being picky. These look great!

the pink snowball was my birthday cake when I turned 4. My mom owned a convenient store and I always saw the pink snowballs and wanted one. I finally had one on my birthday with a candle on it.

Every guy at BA is way taller than Claire, like... a whole head taller. Then there's Chris. Maybe that's why he's her favourite.

Here’s the easiest one : candy buttons. But you have to do it without research and you have to improve it.

I hate when you guys layer all the audio tracks of her reading the ingredients over one another so it just becomes a cacophony of ingredients it's so annoying. I just want to hear them and not noise and words flashing at me rapidly.

I cracked up the way they separated the coconut and look at the coconut grater overall. It's amazing how one's everyday life usage is so different as someone who use coconut everyday.

Clair and Brad chemistry: Siblings who would kill for each other. But Gourmet Makes is like an elder sibling concentrating on her project while snapping at her your her brother, ”Go away. Come back later”.
