  • This video has such a great vibe. The music, the editing, and the calm voiceover all give it a joyful yet strangely melancholic feeling… like a studio ghibli movie or a late night on animal crossing… if that makes sense lmao

  • I just made this cake and have to say it is incredible. Soft & light, slightly tart and sweet at the same time. My friends absolutely loved it. I got 2 handshakes. I felt like Paul Hollywood would have been proud! Instead of crumbled freeze-dried raspberries on top, I used shaved white chocolate. For the filling, I made a raspberry gel and let it set in the fridge. Layered that over the whipped cream frosting in the middle, and man-oh-man, heavenly! Thank you for figuring this all out. The best part is after eating a large slice, you don’t feel heavy or stuffed!

  • I'm sure it tastes better than I any cake I have ever eaten. But just the visual aspect of it almost brought tears to my eyes because of how pretty it is.

  • I don't think I've ever felt so relaxed watching a baking video! I LOVE the jazz in the background. This cake looks perfect and the descriptive adjectives throughout added so much! Such a lovely video 🥰

  • This would have improved if you wet the cake a little bit with sugary raspberry juiced water/milk before layering the whipped cream in the center. I am not saying make it soaking wet but some wetness is necessary .
