Cakes by ChoppA

AS JUST another YouTube hopeful, Choppa was posting the usual “inappropriate” male-orientated content when he stumbled on a niche market that changed his life. The 35-year-old from Sydney says his YouTube career skyrocketed after he made a birthday cake for a kindergarten student and posted the result online.

At the time Choppa, a nickname that he has adopted for his YouTube identity, was a primary school teacher and volunteered to bake a cake shaped like a cow after one of his parents said she wanted a 3D version.

A video of a Spider-Man cake he did three years ago has been viewed more than 27 million times. “I was making more money off cakes than from being a kindy teacher,” he said.
