Ok, so I am a totally outgoing person and up till now I’ve not really featured very much on my own YouTube channel – 2 years, 42 million views and not much at all of me.
Lots of reasons really, but the main reason was always so you guys could see properly what was happening with the cupcakes (they’re a lot smaller than regular cakes!) – and so that I can still film when I’m having a shocking hair day 🙂
Anyway, I’ve decided to start a monthly series where I kind of “wrap” the month up in a nice tidy little episode – a great way to catch up on whats happened if you’re not always viewing the latest videos as they hit your subscription feed.
Speaking of which – did you know you can actually opt to have YouTube send you an email every time I upload? Next to the little button which says “Subscribe” or “Subscribed” under my videos theres a little cog symbol and when you click on it, you get this option to Email with New Uploads.
How did I not know this before! I always miss vids from my favourite subscriptions because they get posted at funny times of the day or night and when I go to check my feed its been filled up with more recent videos. Not any more – the joys of modern technology!
So, The WRAP will pop up in your feed (or your email box!) on the last day of each month and its a way for me to share cool stuff, interesting information and general cakey stuff with you all instead of just the usual tutorials. I made it look like a bit of a news-type show and I’d love your feedback on what you think of the format, the content and also the length. I kind of thought it might be a little too long and perhaps the FAQ section would be better in a separate video each month – what do you guys think?
I’ve made this series in response to you guys asking for more information on my favourite decorating tools, brands, equipment and money saving tips. I’ve had loads of requests from people asking me to do a regular Vlog and do some FAQ sessions, and who doesn’t love a giveaway right? I think this monthly episode will cover off on all those things, and more.
This month I’m giving away 10 x copies of my new recipe book ($4.99), 5 x copies of my full length 3D sculpted cake decorating masterclass ($40.00), 3 x packets of silicone ice cream cupcake moulds ($20.00) and 1 x set of modelling tools ($25.00). Check out the video to see how you get them (or if you’re viewing this post there’s probably a good chance you’ve just finished watching it!)
I want to make my channel more interactive, so these WRAP episodes, this blog and hopefully a bit more of me (bad hair days and all) will all be making more frequent appearances on the MyCupcakeAddiction YouTube channel – but it’s a channel made for you so let me know what you like, what you don’t and what you want to see more of 🙂
