HOW TO MAKE A LEGO CAKE - NERDY NUMMIES
English English Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another NerdyNummies! Today, I got so many requests to do somethingLego. And I got a lot of messages from people saying, Ro, I’m a beginner baker,would you please bake something that’s easy mode. So I thought why not combine these Today I’m going to be make an easy modeLego cake! I love Legos, I have been playing with themand collecting them since I was a little kid, and I even started a baking collection.See I got my little Nerdy Nummies set down here. Oh hey guys, it’s Ro, let mejust open my, oh… Open my oven, oh yeah, and stick a little, oops, stick a little… Stick alittle cup… OH! Oh god, I need to glue these down. Stick a little cupcake in the oven, and putit on and bake for minutes! Yay! The things you will need, will be: 1 box cakemix, I’m using a yellow box cake, but you can also use pound cake, that’sa really good solid cake, to take a square shape. The recipe includes 1 stickof butter, cup of water. You’ll also need Pam baking spray to greaseyour pan, the pan I’m gonna use is a rectangle pan. Yellow, red, green, blue foodcoloring. Or whatever color you would like your lego bricks to be. Cream frosting, and big marshmallows, notthe little ones, the big ones! Not jumbo though… Those are the huge ones,the big, the medium… The medium marshmallow. Let’s put this all together! Then mix it together for 2 minutes on a lowspeed! Once your mixture is all smooth and readyto go in the pan, you’re gonna take your Pam bakng spray, or you can grease your panwith butter, that’s fine too. And just spray all the corners, make sureyou get all the edges. There we go… Pfft! Pfft! Actually smells really good now, they musthave added a scent, like, a, vanilla or something in there! Oh they changedthe smell of these! Now you’re gonna take your batter, and justpour it in… Like that. Now you’re gonna heat your oven to andbake for about minutes. Yum-yum-yum-yum-yum-yum-yum! While your cake is baking, we are going todye all of our frostings. So you’re just going to take vanilla, whitecreamy frosting, scoop it into a bowl, like so. It’s very sticky, get inthere! And, just start by dying them, I’m gonnado yellow first. Because I want a yellow brick. And then mix it around, oh yeah! Oh, oh! And make a mess on your table! Once you get your frosting the color thatyou like, time to do the other ones! Once you’ve got your frostings all colored,take your cake out of the oven and make sure it’s had plenty of time to cool,I put mine in the fridge for about
minutes, so that it’s nice and cool! We are now going to level, using a littlecake leveler, and you’re just gonna walk it… Errrrr! Thought the cake, so thatwe have a nice flat top. And take off the excess, oh yeah! Now what you’re gonnawant to do is cut your cake into You’ll need a sharp cutting knife, and I’mjust gonna eyeball it… Now we’ve got our lego bricks cut, we’vegot our short. I got this idea from the girls at Betty Crockeronline. It was a really, really cool idea, I reallylike it. So we’re gonna take 1 of these, lets takea long Let’s do this 1 yellow! Because yellow issunshine happy! You’re gonna actually frost 2 layers, thefirst layer is what the Betty Crocker girls called the crumb coat, because we’vecut up this cake a lot, all of the sides are exposed, and it createsa lot of crumbs, so you’ll put on 1 coat, pop it in the fridge for about 20minutes, and then put on a second coat. Now we’re just gonna frost the whole thing,all And you can get really messy with it, becausewe’re gonna pick up the cake later and put it on a new surface, so, feel freeto get messy! I just took this cake out of the fridge, it’snice and cool, and now we’re gonna add marshmallows, so that they look like Legobricks, I’m so excited! I saw this tip online, it’s super easy,form the Betty Crocker girls, you just take baking scissors, and a little bit of Pam bakingspray, and you spray your scissors, just a little bit! Ooh! There we go, so that they’re nice and greasy,when you cut your marshmallows. So what you’re gonna do is take your marshmallow,and just gonna cut it in 1/2, and they don’t stick, because thescissors are greased! Ah! OK, and now what we’re gonna do is dip them intothe frosting. I have microwaved this frosting, just a little bit, for like just, 5 secondsor something. Just dip it in, pull it out, ah! And, herewe go, I just use my finger, you can use a spatula if you want, but I like to havefun and get a little messy. Just use your finger, go all the way around,push the frosting down. Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo! And then again, I’m just going to eyeball it,and guess where this goes. I’m guessing this goes here. And then you’re justgonna keep doing this for the rest of the little Lego lumps. My lovely Lego lumps, check ‘em out! And if 1 accidentally falls in your mouth,that’s OK, that happens all the time when you’re baking! Oops! And remember, when you’re making these,the big lego bricks have little nubs, and the small ones have Ta-da! Our Lego Cakes are all done, they’reso cute and amazing! And, there’s no fondant used, and thesewere really, really easy to make, easy mode! Lego Cakes!
