Just as she started out acting, she created a YouTube account in 2009. Viewers began to request more after her initial baking videos garnered a large audience. To satisfy their hunger, she developed the Nerdy Nummies series.
It quickly became a hit, bringing Rosanna widespread exposure and accolades. In 2013, her YouTube channel had more than 3 billion views, making it the most popular cooking channel at the time.

She introduced a baking line in August 2017 in conjunction with Wilton, a cookery brand. They sell kits with cooking items geared toward beginners. According to CNBC, the YouTuber star makes over $6 million per year from YouTube ad revenue and brand deals.
