Winning Recipes and Decorating Ideas at Walloping Teaspoon

May 26th, 2016 by Beth Somers

I started my own baking YouTube channel, and I’m having a blast!


I’ve been making videos for Wilton for nearly 6 years…time flies when you’re having fun!  Making videos is my favorite part of my job. I’ve always loved baking and decorating cakes, sharing recipes, and teaching people decorating techniques. It’s truly my passion. But get me in front of a camera, and I love it even more!  Apparently, I’m a ham. I’m cool with that.

After thinking about it for months, I launched my channel, Walloping Teaspoon last December. Why’d I do it? I already knew that I had a blast filming. Other YouTubers like Beth Le Manach and Yolanda Gamp inspired me with their beautiful food and fun personalities. But mostly, I just wanted a creative outlet where I could get as silly as I want while baking delish stuff to share with friends and family. That’s it! It’s my chance to make something and put it out into the world. Some of my favorite projects so far are the Giant Girl Scout Tagalong Cookie and Marshmallow Doughnut Pop Cake Toppers. I’ve made all of my winning Cupcake Wars recipes on the channel too, and you know those are all fab!




Do you know what the best side effect is? The people I’ve met through YouTube! I’ve chatted with bakers and makers from all over the world, people who learn something from me and people who teach me new things, too. The community is fantastic, and there’s always something to share.

I’m inviting you to subscribe to Walloping Teaspoon! I upload a new episode every Wednesday. Do you have an idea for a video? I’d love to hear it – let’s get inspired together! See you over at the ‘Spoon!

Bake on, awesome bakers. You all rock.
