It currently boasts of over 800k subscribers and more than 50 million views in total.

Rise to Fame
Cassie Diamond began her journey to social media stardom in 2009 when she created a couple of YouTube channels. On them, she posted comedy sketches, which she made with her friends. On January 29, 2011, she set up the ‘claycupcakes4’ channel to put out craft videos. Diamond uploaded the first video on the channel, titled ‘allof my polymer clay creations!’, on March 20, 2011. She uploaded her next video on April 11, 2011. Titled ‘Jelly book marks I made’, it shows her telling her viewers to ask for a tutorial on crafts if they want one. At some point, she renamed the channel after herself.
The first cooking video she uploaded on the platform is ‘DIY Peppermint Bark!’, which was posted on December 24, 2012. In her next video, ‘Christmas Haul 2012!’, she appeared on camera for the first time. As time passed, she became more confident and comfortable with making appearances in her videos. This, in turn, led to the inevitable rise of subscribers and views. These days, each of her videos receives tens of thousands of views. Some of the most popular videos on her channel are ‘10 Types of Girls at School!’, ‘High School You VS Child you!!’, ‘What to Pack on Vacation! How to Pack like a PRO!’, ‘WEIRD Things Girls Do When They Have A CRUSH!!’, ‘High School You Vs Middle School You!’, and ‘I Copied MyLifeAsEva's Instagram for a Week!!’.
Diamond created her vlogging channel on May 6, 2016. Despite having over 20 thousand subscribers on it, she has posted only a handful of videos there. The oldest photograph on her @CassieDiamondVlogs Instagram account was put out on October 21, 2012. She uploads a variety of photographs on her page, from selfies to fashion to food.
Since setting up her Twitter account in July 2012, she has posted updates on a regular basis. She has been featured on several AwesomenessTV videos, including ‘DIY Liquid Candy Phone Case?!
