Where Feast of Fiction is great for making actual meals that sustain you, there’s only one nerdy channel you can go to if you want to make something that relies mostly on looks: Nerdy Nummies. This is primarily a baking channel and a lot of the stuff that’s made is of the cake-and-sugary-icing variety (though not as extremely so as Cake Boss, thankfully) with a heavy emphasis on appearance. If you’re looking to impress your friends with artistic creations, then this is the channel for you. There’s a lot of really informative step-by-step videos on how to make something great looking, often with guests. I’m linking one of my favorites (for obvious reasons) – lactose free blueberry donuts.
And since we’re already on the topic of Dan and Phil and I literally can’t stop watching them when I get started, here’s a bonus baking video of their own creation. Less, uhm… emphasis on appearance but definitely a whole lot of fun. If you want to feel better about your own wonky creations, maybe stick to these guys.
