Gampp uses her YouTube channel to unleash her cake baking passions, making many different cakes from what she calls her “caking bucket list.”

Gampp writes on Bored Panda, “If I can make someone say, “Is that a CAKE?!” I know I’ve done my job.”

Gampp was inspired to make this cake thanks to The Walking Dead premiere. She writes, “Why should humans have all the fun? Zombies deserve a premiere celebration too! I whipped them up a blood red velvet Brain Cake with ropes of brainy fondant and oozing with seedless raspberry jam.”
