Hi, I’m Nic Manshon. Creativity, for me, started back when I was drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and entering Mother’s Day competitions for KTV. I always loved art as a kid and did it as a subject throughout my schooling career.  If I were to be totally honest, I never saw a career in creativity in high school, even though art was my highest marked subject.  Hence, I went to study personal training straight after high school and thereafter worked for Virgin Active for a while. Soon enough I realized that it wasn’t for me. Nonetheless, I believe nothing is lost with learning. After having these feelings to change my career, I started exploring creativity again. That was a good choice! The journey started out at CPUT, studying industrial design and serving at a local church, heading up the media department. After that, I got a scholarship for digital filmmaking at SAE. I never received a scholarship before so I was super stoked to do the course, not rea

Hi there, internet! Sarah Jay here. 

I'm a qualified pastry chef, bakery owner, and YouTuber, born and raised in the small town of Port Elizabeth. I also raise cats, lots and lots of cats. 

I have been the stereotypical art and drama kid my whole life, so I self taught myself how to decorate cakes, work a camera, and voila! Here we are today.  My life sounds quite organised there, but really, I'm just 22 and winging it. Honesty is my policy, hahaha.

Youtube has opened up so many doors for me, and I've rediscovered the passion I have for entertaining people. My ultimate goal would be to take this on as my full time job. My channel is pretty much a diary filled with my thoughts, embarrassing stories, happy memories, and terrible Dota 2 gaming vlogs (I'm getting there though). I also aim to bring awareness to mental health issues and animal cruelty, two things that impact my life on a daily basis. If you're keen to take a look at my crazy story, you can find my channel under Sarah Jay.  

Onto the cakes! I've been baking professionally for four years now. By now, I constantly smell like fresh cake and I'm not even complaining. I like to test myself when it comes to fondant work, and hopefully one day I can take Cake Boss head on. Life goals, right? 

Now for the cats. If you had to look up "cat lady" in the dictionary, my face would be proudly displayed next to that definition. Right now my cat collection is sitting on 5. About a month ago, I fostered my first two kittens, and let's just say... they never left. I've been actively involved in animal anti cruelty for years now, I always tell everyone that my perfect retirement looks like a farm with cats and dogs as far as the eye can see. There's no love like pet love! 

As I always end my videos off: I hope that YOU have the best day ever, and I hope to see you soon!
