English English Hey guys it’s Ro! Today we are gonna bemaking some DIY Rainbow Treats! I got so many requests from you guys to makesomething Rainbow themed, and I have been seeing rainbows everywhere on theinternet. Everyone’s throwing up Rainbows left andright. My sister and I love rainbows, and her favoritecolor, we asked her when she was little. We go Mo, what’s your favoritecolor? And she said Rainbows! And we painted her whole room rainbows, andtoday her favorite color is still rainbows! She’s really gonna like today’streats! The first thing that we are gonna be makingare these cute little Rainbow Funfetti Cupcakes! The things you will need, will be: 2 cupsof flour, cups of sugar,
teaspoons of baking powder, cup of vegetable shortening,
cup of whole milk, 1 sh-tick of butter,which is of salt, 2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/4a teaspoon of almond extract, and, a cup of rainbow sprinkles! To decorate, the things you’ll need willbe You can make it from scratch and dye it yourself,or you can buy it pre-made like I did, from Wilton. This saves a lotof time, and I really love these! We’ve got blue, red, green, yellow, purple,and orange. You’ll also need some decorating icing,blue silicone cupcake liners, decorating tips, to shape the little rainbows,and some toothpicks. The first thing that we’re gonna do is mixtogether our flour, salt and baking powder, into this little mixing bowl, andwhisk it together! Now we are gonna mix together our butter andshortening in the mixer. And you want to make sure that your butteris room temperature, so it’s kind of soft. And mix together until it’swell combined! Now you’re gonna add your sugar, and mixit up one more time, cream it together until it’s well combined! Now we’re gonna add in both of our extracts,and mix it together one more time, and then we’ll be adding our eggs. Because we are making a white cake today,we are gonna separate our egg yolk from the egg white, and we are just gonnabe using the egg whites today. We’re gonna add the egg whites one at atime, so I’ve got one egg white in here and you’re just gonna add it to the mixture! And then… Mix it up! And then add, and then mix it up! And then add, and then mix it up! And then add, and then mix it up! And then add, and then mix it up! Once you’ve mixed in all of your eggs, now we aregonna alternate adding in our dry ingredients that we mixed together earlier,and your milk, starting with the dry! Dry, milk, dry, milk, dry! Now to make this cake a funfetti cake, weare gonna add in our sprinkles and mix it up one last time! Oh it looks so cool! Eeeee! The funfetti cupcake batter is all ready andI just put our silicone liners into our cupcake tray, and I really like thesebecause they actually have a fill line, so in the inside they have a littleline and it says fill to here, for the perfect sized cupcake. And I thoughtthat was pretty neat! So I’m just taking a little scoop over here,but you can just use a tablespoon, whatever’s handy! And I’m just gonna doa big scoop, plop it in! And it should fill right to that line! Once you’ve filled all your cupcake liners,they’re ready to bake! We’re gonna pop these in the oven at degrees and bakefor about minutes. While the cupcakes are baking, we are gonnabe making some rainbow decorations out of fondant. Over here I’ve got purple,blue, green, yellow, orange and red. And then, I’ve placed down a piece of waxpaper, I’ve taped it on top of a little cutting board, so that the fondant won’tstick to the surface. And we’re gonna start with purple. What you’re gonna do is just take a littlepinch of fondant, I’m just gonna roll it in a little ball.Then I’m gonna roll out the fondant into a rope, about 1/8th of an inchthick. Then I’m gonna take one of these littledecorating tips, and you’re gonna place the fondant all the way around. This will just help create the shape of the rainbow. So I’m gonna take this little knife, I’mgonna cut off the excess. The cupcake recipe makes about cupcakes,so you can make however many you’d like. Then you’re gonna take a little pinch ofblue fondant and we’re gonna do the same thing. To make sure your fondant’s sticktogether, what you’re gonna do is take a little paint brush, this is a little bakingbrush. You’re gonna dip it into a little bit ofwater. And the best way to get fondants to stick together is just put down a littlebit of water, you’re gonna place the second color all the way around. And it willstick together! Now you’re just gonna keep doing the samething with our fondants, rolling them out into a thin rope, and then layering them ontop of each other to make little rainbows! We just finished making all of our littlerainbows out of fondant, and I let them sit for about minutes so that they wouldharden. And now, when you pick ‘em up they’llstay together, they hold form. And, I just took the cupcakes out of the oven,they’ve had plenty of time to cool, and now we are going to decorate! I’ve got some decorator icing, I put itinto a plastic baggie, with a number tip. Just for a little bit more control! And we’re just gonna frost the top of eachcupcake, so that it will look like clouds! You’re gonna take a little rainbow, andthen you’re just gonna press it right on the top. And there you have it! Here are all of ourRainbow Funfetti Cupcakes! And when you peel it down, ooooh! You cansee the funfetti in there! I love Funfettis! Hawmph! The next treat that we’re gonna be makingare some Rainbow Pudding Pops! These are very similar to the ones we madefor the DIY but we’re gonna be making them with so manymore colors! To make these rainbow pudding pops, the thingsyou will need, will be: some dixie cups, a stove pot, 3 cups of milk,a whisk, 6 different colors of food coloring. We’vegot red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple, the colors of the rainbow!
spoons, and some woodencraft spoons for the little handles! The first thing that we’re gonna do is takeour stove pot, milk, and vanilla pudding mix with our whisk, over to the stove. Pouryour pudding mix and milk into your stove pot, and whisk together! Then turn thestove onto medium heat, and heat until the mixture comes to a boil, you’re gonnawant to keep stirring! Stir constantly! Then, once it boils, turn off the heat, and take your pot back over to the bakingstation! Our pudding is fresh off the stove, so becareful, it’s very hot! And now we are gonna divide it into the sixbowls. I’m just gonna pour it, I’m using an eyeballingtechnique. Got these little pour spigots on the side of the pot whichmakes it a little bit easy. You just need a little bit. I like to do thiswhile it’s still hot because as it cools it thickens up and it’s easier topour while it’s still thinner. Now we are gonna dye each of our pudding adifferent color from the rainbow. I’m gonna start with orange, just add alittle drop of orange, and then mix together! Now a little bit of yellow. Little bit of green! Now that we have colored all of our puddings,we are gonna assemble our little pops in these cute little Dixie cups I have overhere. I placed them on top of a baking sheet becausewe are gonna pop them into the freezer later. And, letting them freeze on a bakingsheet is a really good idea because they won’t fall over in the freezer, it’s anice, flat surface. Gonna start with purple, I’m just gonna takea spoonful, put it right in the middle. Make sure it covers a layer at the bottom.And then what I like to do is jiggle it, just a little bit, and then give it atap. Tap-tap-tap-tap-tap-tap-tap! So that the pudding will be flat. Then we’re gonna add our blue and tap flat, tap-tap-tap-tap-tap! And then green, yellow, orange and red. Once you’ve assembled your little puddingpop, I’m just gonna place it right here, and you’re gonna take a wooden sticks, andput it right in the middle, about way down. Alright, now we’re gonnapop the pudding pops into the freezer, for a few hours until they have completelyfrozen. These pops sat in the freezer for a few hoursand now they are ready to eat. You just pick one up, hold it by the littlehandle and then you peel off the paper. Oh my gosh this is so cool! Look you guys! Dee-dew! Here’s our little rainbow puddingpop and now they are ready to serve! The next treat that we’re gonna be makingare these rainbow jar cakes! The things you will need to make these willbe: cup of sugar,
teaspoons of baking powder, cup of vegetable shortening,
cup of milk, ounces ofbutter, of salt, 2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract, and, we’ll need some rainbow food coloringdyes, The tools you will need will be: 6 round 6-inchpans, some decorator icing, some glass jars, decorating bags, rainbowsprinkles, and a circle cookie cutter. I’m using a inch so that it will fitinto the jar. The first thing that we’re gonna doto make these rainbow jar cakes is very simple, we’re gonna be using the same recipeas those funfetti cupcakes that we made earlier, so over here I’ve alreadymixed up the batter, from what we made earlier. But, I didn’t do the last step,I didn’t add any sprinkles! So that is the only difference. So now we are gonna divide it into these sixdifferent bowls, to color them the colors of the rainbow. I’m just gonna scoop a little batter intoeach bowl, I’m using an eyeballing technique, trying to make them even. We’re gonna dye each of the bowls a colorof the rainbow, ROY G BIV This is super easy, just take a couple ofdrops, and mix it up until it’s evenly combined. Our cake batters are colored and now it’stime to pour them into our baking pans, I’ve got a little baking spray over here,I’m just gonna spray each pan. And just a reminder, I am using 6, 6-inchpans but these ones look a little bit different because they’re a little taller,I didn’t have ones, but they are just the same, no difference. Now you’re gonna fill up all of your panswith the batters. All of our pans are filled, and as you cansee, it’s a very little amount of batter, look at that! So you want to make sure that the batter istouching all sides, so you give it a little shake… Shake-shake-shake-shake-shake-shake-shake! And a little tap… Tap-tap-tap-tap-tap! And then we’re gonna pop them in the ovenat degrees and bake them for about fifteen minutes. These little pans are sosmall so I was able to fit them all onto one rack. Once your cakes have baked and have had plentyof time to cool, now, we are gonna take our circle cookie cutter, and cut outa bunch of circles, into our little cakes. This recipe makes three cake jars, becausethat is how many circles you can cut into the top of each of the cakes. There are many ways to make a rainbow jarcake. And, I like to do it this way because you really see the definition of colorbetween the colors. I’ve also done it the other way, where youpour the batter into the jar and actually bake them in the oven. But the problem I’vehad with that is that the outsides turn a lighter brown, even when I bake itin a water bath. So this is the way I like to make my rainbowjar cakes because you just see the colors, they’re so bright and beautiful! We’ve got all of our circles cut out, andnow over here on a little piece of parchment paper, I am going to assemble thestack, and I’m going to show you a trick what I like to do. So you’re gonna start with red, and you’regonna take a little bit of buttercream frosting, just a dab. And just go, boop! Andthen, spread it flat. And then orange, and then yellow, then green,blue and then ending with purple! Now for the fun part, I love this, you’regonna take your jar, oh my gosh! And, you’re just gonna go right down ontop of your cake stack. You’re gonna slide the jar to the end ofthe counter, and use your parchment paper, and flip it upside down. Boop! Our jars are assembled, and now for the funpart, it is time to decorate! I love this part! So here, I just have somebuttercream frosting, and a little baggie with a star tip. I’m not sure what numberthis little tip is, but it’s the one with the little star end. And now we’rejust gonna frost a bunch at the top, Oooooooooooh! Like this, it reminds me of an ice cream cone. This part is totally optional, but I’m gonnadecorate them with some rainbow sprinkles! Take a pinch, and make it rain!Over the top. I make it rain! I make it rain! I make itrain! And there you have it, our Rainbow Jar Cakes.The next treat that we’re gonna be making are these yummy rainbow fruit skewers! The things you will need to make these yummyRainbow Fruit Skewers will be: 1 Pineapple, a cantaloupe, fresh raspberries,red grapes, green grapes, blueberries, A large cutting knife, a small cutting knife,and some wooden skewers! Dee-dee-dee-dee-dee, da-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee! The first thing that we’re gonna do is we’regonna cut up our pineapple. You can buy your pineapple pre-cut to makethings easier, but I love fresh pineapple! I got a cutting board, a sharp cutting knife,and the first thing you’re gonna do is cut off the pineapple’s hair. Andthen, you’re gonna cut off the end. And we’re gonna cut off the sides. And we’re gonna cut our pineapples into slices. Like pineapple patties! I’m taking a smaller knife and I’m justgonna cut out the core, the core is in the middle. Get rid of these suckers! And then, you’re just gonna cut your littlepineapple slices. Now we’re gonna cut up our cantaloupe. These are really easy to cut up, again, I’mworking on a cutting board with a sharp cutting knife, so be very careful! There’s the little end, and here’s thetop, so I’m gonna cut it hotdog style. And now, I’m gonna take a spoon, and I’mgonna scoop out the middle part, the guts, into this little bowl. Then we’re gonna cut hotdog once again downthe middle. And now, we’re gonna do the same thing,we’re gonna cut the quarters down the middle. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm! And you’re just gonna cut the green andskin off! Don’t need him! Then, we’re just gonna cut ‘em into littlechunks. Now all of our fresh fruit is prepared, andwe are ready to assemble these cute little skewers. To assemble these, you’regonna take a wooden skewer, one end is dull and the other end is pokey,so be careful! And we’re gonna assemble these backwards.So we’re gonna start with purple. And you can either do one or two, I reallylove grapes so I’m gonna be using two. And then we’re gonna add a couple blueberries.You’re gonna add your green grape. Now add a piece of pineapple, then your orangecantaloupe. I love raspberries, so I’m also gonna beadding two of these. There you have it, Rainbow Fruit Skewer! Da-da!
