Rosanna Pansino is a very known American baker and an author who is also a YouTube celebrity.
She is widely known for her cooking series called “Nerdy Nummies” which is one of the most viewed baking series ever. She has a great imagination and seems that she can do any kind of cake in the world.
Rosanna Pansino was born on June 8,1985 in Seattle, Washinton in United States.
She is of Italian, Croatian, German and Irish descent. It is probably the reason of her baking skills because she has a mixture of various cooking influences in her family. She developed love for cooking at a very early age.
She was a pupil at the Native American Elementary School.
She played soccer and trained gymnastics in high school. Many of her teachers claim that she was very talented in many fields because of her intelligence. After high school she became a student at the Pacific Lutheran University where she graduated in 2007.
She created her YouTube channel because she was persuaded by many of her friends (who are professional YouTubers) that she will be great at it because she has multiple talents and awesome baking skills.
People enjoyed her videos very much and she was suddenly overwhelmed with requests for more videos. So she decided to get serious and she made it her full time job later. She is very happy about her job because she truly does love it
She saw that there aren’t no nerdy baking shows on TV abd that people want to watch some different cooking shows so she decided to create her own under the name “Nerdy Nummies”. It is a very catchy phrase people often use.
She was inspired for baking by her grandmother with whom she has baked when she was a kid. She combines traditional baking with new modern inventions and stiles and gets great results by it. One thing she especially enjoys is to decorate in various ways and often even make characters from cartoons.

She succeeded in getting minor roles in known series such as “Ghost Whisperer” and “Glee” where she played the cheerleader, but she didn’t spend all of her time auditioning and she wasn’t completely into it so she was confronted by her agent who told her that she has to choose between her YouTube channel or acting.
He said it because he knew how much time she loses while she makes new videos of baking. It was a pretty tough decision for her since she does love both of her interests.
She finally chose YouTube over acting and it was a great decision for her fans who couldn’t wait what more she can show them.
In 2016, when she was already a known YouTube star, she was a guest star in “Bizaardvark” which was aired on Disney’s Channel and there she played herself.
Her baking episodes are basically tutorials for nerdy things in baking and the episodes often feature popular YouTubers such as Michelle Phan, Casey Ho, Jordan Maron, Miss Piggy from The Muppets, Jimmy Wong and many more.

Although her tutorials last around 10 minutes it actually takes a lot of time to make them and usually she can make one a week. They need time to be created and produced.
At the beginning of her online career she did everything by herself, but today when she is a star she has eight employees to do it instead. Ut is interesting that they’re all family.

Her sisters, her parents and even her brother-in-law: they all work as members of her company.
