    Cars Cake Tutorial HOW TO COOK THAT Disney Lightning McQueen Ann Reardon - YouTube !!! English English Add subtitles/CC
    Welcome to How To Cook That I am Ann Reardon
    Today we are making a 3D lightning mcqueen cars cake. You can use this method that I
    am going to show you to make any car cake that you like but today I am going to show
    you how to decorate it up as lightning mcqueen because that is the one that has been requested
    the most.
    To make it easier for you to follow what I am doing I have drawn up a cutting template.
    You will need to cut out the template and cut the cake board and some of the fondant
    templates, just follow the instructions on each piece and if they are two large to fit
    on the page then they have a joining line to guide you where to join them together.
    That's available on the website howtocookthat.net as well as all of the ingredients for the
    recipes that I am using all of that is on the website and I'll put a link in the description
    below this video.
    Lets start with the number
    place some non-stick baking paper over you
    and cut around the
    coloured part of the numbers ignoring the white outline you want to cut close to the
    colour.
    Then roll out some white fondant If your fondant is sticky you may need to gently rub some
    oil on the rolling pin when you roll it out just to stop the fondant from just gluing
    to it. Place your non-stick baking paper with the
    cut out onto your fondant. Then using
    a dry paintbrush with either some edible yellow powdered colour or luster dust just dust that
    over the top half of your numbers. Then use the red on the bottom half and blend it in
    the middle by gently smudging the red into the yellow. If you've got orange then use
    orange in the middle if not just blend them together. Use a tissue to remove any excess
    colour so that it doesn't spill onto the numbers when we're peeling it off. Then gently lift
    off the paper. Using a knife cut around the numbers leaving a white border around them
    so that it looks just like it did in the picture. When you are making a
    helps to make a lot of the details ahead of time. So that you're not trying to get it
    all done the night before the party. Use a straw to cut out the centre of the number
    9, that will be too tricky to do with a knife. You need to make three of these number
    one for each side of your car and one for the top. Once they are made don't move them
    off your baking paper because if you do try and move them while they are still wet like
    this they're going to move out of shape, instead cut around the baking paper and move to a
    tray so that you can leave them to dry.
    Next for the rusteze symbol that's on the front bonnet take a sheet of non-stick baking
    paper and carefully cut out the word rusteze and the curved lines around the top and the
    bottom. Don't worry about the tiny writing on the logo we are just going to do the big
    word. Make sure you keep the centers those tiny little bits of the letter e if you lose
    it just cut another little one because you are going to need those.
    Roll out some brown fondant and place the baking paper over the top. And then carefully
    place those little pieces of the e in the right spot. And then using a dry paintbrush
    again brush on some yellow and then some orange and then right on the very corners just a
    small tinge of your red colour you don't want too much of that because it doesn't contrast
    enough with the browns you wont be able to read it if you do too much red. Remove the
    centre of the e and cut around the logo. Then next we want to make the outline for the logo,
    to do that roll a long skinny snake of black fondant. This needs to be even the snake otherwise
    the outline will be uneven, if you don't get it right first time just roll it back up into
    a ball and try it again it can take some practice to get a long even snake. If you can't roll
    snakes and you've tried and you just can't get it then you can try cutting a thin shaving
    using a pizza cutter. Brush a little water around the edge of the
    logo and then pick a starting point and wrap the outline around using the end of your paint
    brush to push it into the small corners. Once you've done that with the rusteze symbol
    you also need to outline your number 95. You need more of that black so again either roll
    it our or use the pizza cutter. And same thing moisten it with a paintbrush Starting at one
    end using wrap it around using the end of a paintbrush or knife to get it into all of
    the corners Then place some extra black outline and place it on the bottom sides of the numbers
    to make it look thicker like a shadow.
    To make your eyes cut out circles in the size shown on the template. I used a piping tip
    for this, you only need two eyes but I like to make extra so that I can choose the two
    that look the best together and look the most natural. Using a straw cut a circle of black
    fondant out and place that onto the eye. If you put a tiny dab of water onto the white
    it will help it stick, if you use too much you'll have a puddle of black around the pupil
    so you want to make it just damp rather than wet.
    Using some blue colouring paint around the edge of the eye and then on the white fondant,
    making sure you leave one quarter of the eye a bit lighter than the rest of it. You can
    make these fondant details that we are doing ahead up to a month before and just leave
    them to dry out in the open air at room temperature and then once they are dry you can put them
    in an airtight container but make sure you've go non-stick paper between them. Add the tiniest
    little dot, a tiny ball of white fondant just to the edge of the pupil there just to bring
    the eye to life.
    Now to make the head lights and brake lights, to do that place your templates onto the fondant
    and cut around them with a knife. Paint them with black food colour around the edges and
    on the top to match the pictures that you've got. Paint in the yellow and red and then
    add the black details on the top of the brake light. So this is just like painting a picture
    or just like colouring in really. You've got the shape cut out and you just need to copy
    what is in front of you to colour it in. I am using gel colors for this, you can get
    those from cake decorating stores.
    To make the very back of the car cut around the template in red fondant twice, trim the
    second one shorter than the first and add to the base, using some water to glue them
    together. Again just making them damp not wet. Then carefully
    put your brake lights into position . Then roll out another snake of black and this
    time cut it into equal lengths,
    Brush those with your silver luster dust. If you can't get hold of luster dust then
    you could just use grey fondant for these rods instead or silver.
    Using a tiny bit of water place one in the centre, one on either side and then one half
    way in between each of those. I'm using then end of a piping tip or you can use something
    small and round push down like the tip of a pen with the ink taken out of it on the
    end of each one so that it looks like it is bolted into place.
    I am always on the look out for other sweet channels on youtube and if you are having
    a cars party then you might want to check out mycupcakeaddictions tutorial she is putting
    up a mater cupcake this week I'll put a link to her channel in the description below this
    video for you.
    Now for your windows, roll out some dark grey fondant and cut around the template to make
    the shape of the back and the side windows. Set those aside on a tray to dry with all
    your other details.
    Now all of that can be done ahead, weeks before the party so that then when you come to doing
    the actual cake the day before the party it is not a stress.
    You guys keep asking how long does it take to make these cakes, well to do all of those
    details and some of them I made more than one of so that I could choose the best of
    that took 6 hours so set aside plenty of time. Now a couple of days before I want you to
    make the cakes and the frosting. I am using my favourite chocolate cake recipe which is
    moist and delicious and all of those recipe details are on the website howtocookthat.net
    along with all the details about the fondant and frosting quantities that you'll need for
    this. I am tripling the cake recipe which will give
    me 6 trays of cake, of which you only need
    spare tray cake which you can use just to eat.
    For the frosting I am making my chocolate buttercream and some ganache and I've left
    the ganache overnight to firm up. Then I'm just beating those together so it give a rich
    chocolatey frosting but it's not quite as expensive as if you just used ganache using
    the buttercream makes it a little more affordable.
    Cut out your cake board template out of thick cardboard. And it will also need to be waterproofed
    so it doesn't just absorb the moisture and the oil from the cake and then it is going
    to be too soft. So you can either do that using foil or tape. and completely cover it
    so it is waterproofed. Bend your base up to match the profile of the base of the side
    of the car. If you want a simpler option you can skip doing the cake board all together.
    THat's fine you just make the base of your cake sit flat on the serving platter and for
    that option you will need that 6th layer of cake so don't eat it then. And there obviously
    then wont be a gap under your car. If you want your car off the platter then you need
    to support it up, I am using 1 cm maths counting blocks, if you are using a wooden cake board
    you can drill support rods in and trim them to the right size like we did on the minion
    cake. But today I am using a tile so I am not going to attempt to drill through it without
    cracking it so I am going to hot glue gun them into place instead. Once your finished
    your cake board should look like this with the cardboard sitting off the tray and it
    is not completely flat it is going a bit up at the back and a bit up at the front.
    Once all of your tray cakes are completely cool I want you to spray them with some simple
    syrup to ensure that the cake is extra moist. When you're making
    to the air for quite a while while you put it together and carve it so it can dry out,
    so to help counteract we use simple syrup which suprisingly does not make the cake soggy
    just makes the cake moist.
    Put your car template onto one of the tray cakes and cut around it using a serrated knife.
    Place a small amount of frosting onto the cake board to hold the cake in place.
    Then here is my trick to get it to the cake board without it breaking. Slide it onto something
    flat and strong I am using a chopping board. Bring it to one end and then fold the baking
    paper under the edge . Then place the start of the cake in the correct position and pull
    back the baking paper under the board back towards the the opposite edge. As you do that
    the cake slides off into place. Smother that in a thin layer of yummy frosting.
    Then add you next layer using the same method. If it is not quite in the right spot straighten
    it up as you go.
    You need to repeat that until you have 4 layers of cake piled up. Then cut your
    into two pieces and add it to the middle section because that's where we need more height .
    Now take you side template and use that as a guide carve over the top of your cake. Cutting
    over the bonnet up over the top and down the other side.
    Next take the large roof template and line up the front of the windscreen which you can
    see where that is from where you cut with your side template. Cut around this template
    going straight down to the level of the front bonnet and no further. Then remove the excess
    cake. Then add the smaller roof template this time
    that up with the top of the windscreen not the front of the windscreen . Trim down on
    an angle to join up with the base of the previous cut that you've just done using the bigger
    template.
    Next we want to slightly trim down the front bonnet just like it looks on the car in the
    same width as the top of the roof. and you want to do the same thing again at the back
    of the car do the same at the back of the car so it goes down slightly in the middle.
    using your knife then slightly round off the corners at the top and base of the cake.
    Take a round cookie cutter in a similar size to the wheels if it is slightly smaller that's
    ok you can do more than one cut and using your template to find the correct location
    for the wheels and push the cutter into the cake. Then use a spoon to scoop out the cake
    that's in the middle there.
    Next you want to cover the entire cake in frosting. This seals in the moisture of the
    cake and gives us something for the fondant to stick to. Once it is completely covered
    place it in the fridge.
    While it is in the fridge we are going to make our wheels to do that cut oreo sized
    circles out of some red fondant. Then using a smaller circle indent the centre. Then using
    a straw cut 6 circles around the centre in the middle section. Then take another straw
    and flatten it one way and then turn it an flatten it in the opposite way and use that
    to cut around the edge of the wheel to cut rectangles out of that.
    Cut out 8 circles of black fondant. Sandwhich
    and then spread a thin layer of frosting around the edges. Add a circle of black fondant to
    the top and bottom of each stack. Brush a small amount of water, just dampen
    it, onto the black and add the red circles on top. roll out some black fondant fairly
    thickly and evenly. To help you do this you can buy rings for your rolling pin or you
    can use two of something that's the same size like chopsticks like I am using here.
    Cut it to size using the template and then cut a narrower strip of red fondant that has
    been fairly thinly rolled and put that up fairly close to the top edge of your wheel.
    Then use a chopstick to make an indent for the top of the red circle go into. So that
    when you are rolling it you are not squashing that red disc that you have just made which
    would make it crack so we are just indenting down using a chopstick or you could use a
    ruler whatever you've got that is going to make enough space that when you are rolling
    that red bit can just slot into. Place one of your wheels on top and roll it
    up. When you get to the end trim off the excess using scissors and push the end neatly into
    place. Give it a gentle roll to smooth out your wheel and then repeat that of course
    to give you another
    Take you cake out of the fridge and using some quality paper towel gently rub to smooth
    out any little bumps in the frosting. Take a bit of time here to do this carefully because
    when you cover the cake in fondant any bumps that you have in your frosting underneath
    you are going to be able to see . Next thinly roll out some white fondant and
    place it where the mouth should go, it needs to be bigger than the mouth will actually
    be. But it needs to be fairly thin so that you
    don't see the line on the edge of it when you put the other fondant over the top.
    Rub a little cooking oil onto it and so the mouth template will stick over the top. Add
    a really thin piece of black across each corner of the mouth just under the template. Next
    I am placing a toothpick right in the middle so I can use it to find where to cut it later,
    we will pull it out so it is not in the finished cake so nobody's going to eat a toothpick
    you don't need to worry about that, it's just to guide us to where..
    now you don't want it sticking out too much you just want it sticking out just enough
    so that you can press on your fondant and find it later
    Now to roll out your red fondant, lightly grease your rolling pin and roll out that
    fondant. Before I start rolling I put the baking paper over the top of my cake to measure
    how big my fondant needs to be and how wide it needs to be as well. SO that I know when
    I get on my baking paper I need to roll it all the way out to that size And I know confidently
    that will cover the cake. Pick up your fondant I just do that using my forearms and drape
    it over the car, gently smoothing it into the contours. Tuck it into the wheel holes
    and use scissors to trim off any excess fondant. When trimming always leave more than you think
    you need so you can tuck it under neatly. Somehow when you are cutting fondant at the
    bottom of a cake it always seems to shrink magically once it's cut and it's too short
    then and you don't want that so cut it longer than you think.
    Use a ball of red fondant to smooth out over the cake without leaving finger prints on
    it. This also helps to smooth out any little imperfections or bumps you might of given
    it while you were putting it on.
    Now for the mouth, feel for that toothpick and once you have located it take a knife
    and gently cut across in a smile shape on the front.
    Gently push the fondant up and down to make the smile shape and remove the baking paper.
    So you don't need to take any red fondant away we're just going to squash it up and
    squash it down. The purpose of the baking paper was to keep
    the teeth really white. Pull out the toothpick and use a knife to cut the smile shape in
    the teeth.
    Now at this point it seems to come together fairly quickly because you've already done
    a lot of these details ahead so Cut the bonnet lines so that you can see where
    the bonnet goes , stick on your little headlights just using a tiny bit of water to make it
    stick. Then add you rusteeze symbol to the bonnet.
    Add on your side windows to both sides of the car. Then place the number
    on top,
    find where you want it to go before you add any water to it and then brush a tiny bit
    of water on the back and stick it into place. Next we need to make the rivets for the front
    bonnet just cut small circles out of black fondant using a straw and then dust them with
    silver luster dust. Add your four rivets to the front bonnet. DOn't use too much water
    when adding your details or the colour of the fondant will run, you just want to make
    a tiny little bit of water and then put them into place.
    At the back of the car add a strip of fondant and support it using a ruler propped on something
    that matches the height that you need. Moisten the back of the car and add your back detail
    piece into place. Secure in place using spaghetti. Leave them long and sticking out for now we
    can trim them short later once it has fused into place. The reason we use uncooked spaghetti
    rather than toothpicks is because they are edible and wont hurt anyones mouth. Make sure
    when you've put that back of the car on that there is a close join between the back piece
    and the cake so that you can then you can leave them to fuse together.
    Use the template to cut out the windscreen and then place it on your cake. Then cut out
    the red top of windscreen, I did this by hand but I will add a template for that as well.
    And then place that over the top of the windscreen lining it up up with just above the white
    so that you can't see the white at the top. Next add your eyes making sure that the white
    dot is facing the same way on both of them. You can place them in the middle like this
    or you can put them to one side like on the cars poster. It's up to you.
    Next we need to make the side lightning flash for our car. So roll out some yellow fondant
    and use the powdered colour or luster dust again to shade from orange to red. Roll out
    some black fondant really thinly and place the yellow flash you've just done over the
    top. Then trim around the edge leaving a black border the whole way around.
    The reason that we don't make this part ahead is we need it to be still malleable so that
    we can put it around the shape of our car. Place the thin end of the lightning flash
    near the base of the front wheel overlapping just a tiny bit and then smooth it towards
    the back of the car and around that back bit. Trim the start of the lightning flash using
    scissors and then using your cookie cutter to gently cut around the wheel area. Now you
    do not want to push too hard because you don't want to cut through the red fondant here,
    just the lightning flash.
    Add your numbers to each side of the car, brushing on a tiny bit of water to the back
    of each letter to make it stick.
    By now you should be able to trim off the spaghetti and remove your support from the
    back.
    Add you wheels, for them to fit you need the hole to be high enough right to the back,
    if they don't fit just use your finger or the round cutter to push it up a bit higher.
    Then slot the wheel into place. For the front wheels you can put them in straight
    or you can put them on an angle just like on the poster.
    Add the other two wheels and you can cake is completed and ready to party.
