SpyCakes was born in Canada on 16 August 1994, so under the zodiac sign of Leo and holding Canadian nationality – he is popular for his YouTube channel onto which he mostly uploads his gameplays of adventure and creative games. He is particularly popular for his “Scrap Mechanic” videos.
Early life and education
SpyCakes is very secretive when it comes to his personal matters, as he hasn’t shared many details regarding his early life with the public, including his real name. He grew up playing video games, which wasn’t something his parents were very happy about – they made a deal with him that he could play for as long as he wanted, if he brought home good marks from school.
The deal was honored by SpyCakes who wanted to play video games more than anything else – he was also very good at this, which eventually led him to launch his own YouTube channel. He doesn’t usually talk about his parents, but they don’t seem to be very supportive of his online career, as they were hoping for their son to enroll at college and become someone important… like a doctor. SpyCakes hasn’t mentioned having any siblings, so is considered to be an only child.
Career of a YouTuber
SpyCakes’ career began the moment he launched his YouTube channel on 6 February 2012 – there are currently nearly 1.2 million people subscribed to his channel which also counts more than 600 million views combined of all his videos.
SpyCakes began by uploading funny content, as his main goal was to make his fans laugh, however, after only a year of being active, he stopped uploading any videos. An hiatus of three years was followed in 2016 when he was back to uploading videos onto YouTube, but instead of comedy, he switched to gaming content. Most of the videos on his channel are “Scrap Mechanic” video game gameplays, as that is his favorite game.
Although he works on his own, SpyCakes is mostly popular for the work he has done with other YouTubers, in collaboration with Beautiful O.B., and some with Comodo Gaming. SpyCakes had an account on Patreon, but due to a low number of patrons who generated a very small amount of money per month for him, he decided to stop using it.
The “Scrap Mechanic” video game was created and developed by Axolot Games, and was officially released on 20 January 2016.
The game offers the player a sandbox mode, challenge mode, and a survival mode – the main thing which makes this game stand out of all the others is the complexity of machines which can be made in it including cars and robots – all the machines which are created by players can then be shared through the workshops.
Player of the game is a maintenance mechanic robot who was sent to a fully automated farming planet which is supposed to supply all surrounding planets with food. Just as you are about to land on the planet, you lose control of your plane which then crashes, and you realize that the robots working on the farms called Farmbots have gone crazy and are getting ready to attack you.
You have to both survive, figure out what is going out, and help fix the planet.
Love life and relationships
SpyCakes is one of the most secretive people online, as he hasn’t shared any details regarding his past and present affairs with the public, however, there are still some rumors about girlfriends circulating the internet. In 2015, SpyCakes was rumored to be dating one of his female fans, after she sent him a message on Twitter and asked him out. SpyCakes was intrigued by the offer, mostly because the girl in question was very attractive, and he decided to go on a date with her – they instantly fell for one another, and dated for nearly a year before calling it quits in the summer of 2016.
Even though many of his fans have talked about their relationship, SpyCakes hasn’t confirmed any of this himself. He is currently rumored to be dating another YouTuber who is producing gaming videos as well, but SpyCakes hasn’t addressed these rumors either. Judging by his accounts on several social media platforms, he currently appears to be single, hasn’t married, and doesn’t have any kids.
Hobbies and other interests
SpyCakes is a big fan of food – pies are his favorite, but he also loves eating chocolate, and although his nickname includes cakes, he is not a big fan of these.
His number one passion is playing video games, but he is also very interested in film and has seen numerous movies through the years – he can often be seen speaking the lines from some of his favorite movies which include “Pulp Fiction” and “Fight Club. He was physically active during the time he spent at high school, but has since been completely focused on his online career and has apparently lost all interest in sports. He is not much of a traveler as he misses his PC and PS4 the moment he steps outside the doors – he is a lover of animals but doesn’t have a pet as it would only get in the way while he is playing video games.
Appearance and net worth
SpyCakes is currently 24 years old. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, while his height and weight are unknown. According to authoritative sources, his net worth is estimated to be more than $150,000 as of early 2020, and is steadily rising thanks to his career online.
SpyCakes is one of those YouTubers and Twitchers who have decided to stay very secretive, and keep their personal matters to themselves. While there are two levels of secrecy online, SpyCakes belongs to the lower one, or to those ‘less secretive’ people.
SpyCakes hasn’t shared his real name with his fans, although they have been asking about it ever since he launched his YouTube channel in 2012 – so he is still only known by his YouTube name.

This leads us to the second level of secrecy or the most secretive people online – these are the people who haven’t shown their faces online even after years of livestreaming and uploading videos. Fans of these people (who are usually extremely popular) do not know what they look like, or what their real names are.
Social media presence
SpyCakes is active on several popular social media platforms, as this is very important for his career online. He launched his Twitter account in December 2009, his Instagram account has nearly 270 pictures onto it, and he also has a Facebook profile, but seems to be using it just to keep in touch with his friends and family.
