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
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
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
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
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
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
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.

Welcome to How To Cook That I am Ann Reardon
Today we are making the TOP TEN BOOKS cake as decided by you And it took ages to tally
up the thousands and thousands of votes for the different books.
Let me know if your favourite novels made it onto the cake.
You will need to bake 2 trays of my rich chocolate cake and I'll put all the recipes and the
template for this cake on the howtocookthat.net website and there is a link in the description
You will also need to make 2 batches of the gingerbread recipe. And then u a pizza cutter
to cut around the wall template. But don't take off the edge pieces you want to bake
it with those on because it helps make the edges of it and the corners of it not get
burnt while ti is baking.
Once the cake has cooled use the template to cut three rectangles out of one of the
trays and these will become the seat of the chair.
Then cut the back of the chair out of the other tray tray cake. And then from the end
of that one cut
Place some frosting on the cake board to keep the cake in place then add your first layer
right at the front of the board so that you've got a gap at the back for the back of the
chair. Brush on some simple syrup and I always use this if you are not serving the cake the
same day because it helps keep the cake moist. Add a layer of frosting then place the next
rectangle on top. Continue to stack up your cakes . Use the template to check the height
of the base of the seat and trim some off if you need to if it is too high. Add frosting
to the back of the chair smoothing it out as best as you can.
Then add a cake support right down the middle of that to give it some strength.
Carefully stand it up and push it into place on the back of the chair.
Add your rectangles into place where the arms of the chair should be. Use a knife to round
them off using the template to give you the shape. Then cover the whole thing in buttercream
and place it in the fridge to firm up.
Using the cake scraps cut out some rectangles to make the fireplace and cover that in buttercream
too. Roll out some light brown fondant and place that over the fireplace, then smooth
around all the sides and trim off the excess fondant.
Use a ruler or the back of a knife to draw horizontal indents around the fireplace for
where the bricks are. I find it helpful to cut one brick shape so that you can use that
as a guide to keep them all the same size.
Now add vertical indents to make the individual bricks. And again just using the one as a
guide so you get the spacing right. Then take some silver luster dust and dust between the
bricks to create some contrast for the mortar. Using the template cut the dark brown wood
pieces for the fireplace and add them into place using a little bit of water to make
them stick. Don't add the mantle shelf yet leave that to dry out. Now add a snake of
brown up each side piece and use the back of a knife to make diagonal indents into the
wood so that you've got like a carved piece there.
To make the actual wood for inside the fire just wrap up a snake of light brown fondant
in dark brown. Cut a piece in the length of your firewood and then shape it how you like
to be. This would be great if firewood was really the easy to cut. For some pieces use
a knife to roughen up the end so it looks like they have been snapped rather than chopped
Place the chair on a bowl and cover it in red fondant, or whatever colour you want your
chair to be. Use a ball of fondant to push it down into the corners of the seat there,
lifting the fondant as you do. I am using the ball so I make sure I don't get fingernail
imprints on the chair at all the ball is nice and smooth.
Once you have the seat part right just smooth over the rest of the fondant.
And then use scissors to cut off at the base at the front and then tuck the excess under.
Trim the back of the chair in the same way and use your fingers to flatten out where
the edge of the fondant is.
Use the back of a knife to define the edges of the chair right at the seat bit there and
then and the lines down and across the front. So that you've got like a cushion part sitting
Then press down on the chair with your fingers to indent it like someone is sitting there.
Add a square of fondant to the side of the chair. I try to add the fondant pieces in
just like the fabric would be on an actual seat. Then add a line of holes for stitching,
I am using a dress makers tool for this, if you don't have one you could just use a skewer
to do lots of holes in a line instead.
Add your piece of fondant to the back of the chair and stitch it into place in the same
way as we did on the side.
Roll a tiny snake of fondant and add it like piping around the front edge of the cushion
and the arm of the chair. If you have a fondant extruder then that makes this really easy.
If not then you are just going to have to roll really thin even snakes. Then add another
piece over the top of the back of the chair. Then put the whole thing back in the fridge.
Moving onto our walls. Once the gingerbread is cooled cover it in a layer of chocolate
spreading it out to all the way to the edges. Then add a chocolate transfer sheet on top.
You need to make sure you don't have pockets of air underneath, it all needs to be touching
on the design so just use your fingers to get rid of any air bubbles. Chocolate transfer
sheets have a pattern on them out of coloured cocoa butter and when the warm chocolate touches
it the cocoa butter melts and then when the chocolate sets that pattern ends up setting
in the chocolate. Once you are happy with it flip it over and press down gently to get
it completely flat. and then leave it to set.
Once it is set just peel off the acetate and wah lah have wall paper pattern on our wall.
For the other wall I am just making it plain because it is going to have lots of things
on it in a minute. Once it is set use a sharp knife to scrape
a tiny bit off, I want to use this in the fire place later.
To make our door roll out some modeling chocolate or you could use brown fondant and cut around
the template. Add the strips of brown around the edge like planks of wood on the door.
Then take the end of a piece of plastic and indent down around the edges on the insides
of those nits of wood so it looks like it has been routed to give a bit of a pattern.
Then use a knife to draw lines for wood grain across the door. Just going doing some rounded
shapes and lines around those following the same path.
Add a little bit of water to the wall and put the door in place. Then use a ruler just
to straighten the edges.
Roll a ball or brown and dust it with silver luster dust using a dry paint brush, flatten
it slightly, then add it into place for the door handle.
Use some melted chocolate to add the walls into place on a firm piece of wood and I've
just covered mine in foil.
Then add some long strips of brown fondant to cover that ll the way across and make it
look like wooden floor boards.
Use the end of a ruler to make indents for the end of each board.
For where our fireplace is going to go add a rectangle of fondant with indents to make
it look like bricks just like we did on the fireplace.
Then add a thin piece of black onto the wall behind it for the back of the fireplace.
Add the cake fireplace into place where it should go using some melted chocolate to make
sure it sticks.
Then add the mantel shelf into place on top.
Put some black gel food colour onto paper towel and gently rub some black onto the bricks
around where the fire would of discoloured them. Fireplaces never look clean.
Then use the black to colour on some of the logs and roll them in the shaved white chocolate
for ash. Add the burnt log and some more ash into the fireplace.
Then pile on more sticks and some littles strips of red fondant for flames.
Now in the centre of add the chair cake, I have put four bits of gingerbread under the
cake board to hold it just off the ground.
Now for our books. Coming in at number ten was THE HOBBIT by J R R Tolken
Roll a disk of black fondant and cut a circle using a straw. Then use the end of your paint
brush to poke a hole through the centre. Then roll it gently to form a ring.
Brush that all over with gold luster dust. The hobbit was actually published nearly
years ago and it follows the quest of bilbo baggins to get treasure guarded by the dragon
Smaug. And if he puts this ring on he becomes invisible. So he wears it around his neck.
Cut a strip of brown fondant and thread it through the ring twisting it at the end.
And we are going to place that just here on the arm of the chair.
Now I was going to wait until the end to make this one but I am just too excited. Our novel
written by my husband Dave is now available for pre-sale in the book stores. woohoo and
I'll put the links below.
Dampen some blue fondant and add the back cover
I have printed out the cover using edible ink on wafer paper, which is paper that you
can eat - it's used on nougat. Put some baking paper on top and rub it firmly.
The book is called ... the deep enders and you guys have been involved in writing it,
from choosing the bad guys name, to deciding what country
year old Murph is from, what
movie is playing at the cinemas when he first sees Mikki, the sassy girl - who's style you
chose. She has a secret which has her on the run.
Thank you so much for all of your input we have put so much energy and passion into this
book so I really hope that you enjoy it.
Trim along the edges of the cover then cut the white slightly smaller than the cover.
And add the cover on top. Flip it over, indent it in the middle then add a roll of baking
paper under each side to let the book curve as they do when they are open.
Add a tiny bit of water the the middle and then add this page from the book printed on
the wafer paper into the middle. Now add lines for the pages across the edges
of the book. And people have been asking will the book
be in print, will it be in digital will it be available in my country - yes, yes and
yes - check out the links below for details. And if you love it please do leave a review
for the book because that will really help us so do that once you've read it.
At number 9 we have Girl on-line by another youtuber Zella Sugg.
Add a snake of fondant to the wall like a photo line.
dampen it with a little water and add the pictures from the front of her book. And agin
they are just printed out on wafer paper.
year old blogger who's blog goes viral, then in the second
book she goes on tour with her rockstar boyfriend.
At number 8 we have another youtuber John Green and I have done The Fault in Our Stars
ice cream cake before so I'll link to that one in a books playlist at the end of this
video. But for this cake we are going to do another of his books. We will do Paper Towns.
Use wafer paper and edible ink to write a tiny note with this address on it and add
it to the side of the door using a little bit of water. The book is about Quentin's
quest to follow the clues and find Margo his neighbour after she disappears.
So I have also printed out a map of Agloe on wafer paper and we'll just leave that on
the floor at the front.
At number seven is the Dork Diaries by Rachel Renee Russel
Roll out some pink fondant thinly and a thicker piece of white. Rub a little water on top
and add wafer paper cover on top of that. Place baking paper over the top and rub it
to make sure it is fully adhered. Then just trim around the edges.
Cut the white fondant a little bit smaller than the cover and use some water to add it
Flip it over and make and indent for the middle of the book. Then using a knife make indents
for pages along the sides of the book.
Dork diaries are stories about Nikki a not so perfect self-confessed DORK
Roll a piece of baking paper and place it under the middle of the book. then curve up
the spine of the book so it looks like books do when they sit open down like this. Once
it the book is firm just add it onto the floor next to the chair.
At number SIX it is divergent by Veronica Roth.
I have already made a full divergent cake video with all the factions on it. And I'll
put that in the playlist at the end too. You guys always ask for what you like, so I have
already done some of these. Add the wafer paper to the blue fondant.
Divergent is about Tris who lives in a post apocalyptic dystopian future, she has to choose
a faction, and she is separated from her family, finds out she is different and there is a
villain trying to destroy the government.
Add the white to the inside of the cover and draw lines for the pages.
Then turn it around and add some indents on the spine.
Let's put that one by the fireplace.
Coming in at number 5 we have the maze runner by James Dashner we are going to make this
one in the same way as we did for divergent. This novel is about a bunch of teenagers who
wake up inside an unsolvable Maze full of hideous creatures, in the future, in a dark,
dystopian world. It is an experiment, to study their minds.
Let's put that one on the floor over here with divergent.
Diary of a wimpy kid by Jeff Kiney had so many votes from you that it made it to number
4 on the list. Roll a ball of white fondant for his head
and use some spaghetti to attach it to the top of the chair.
roll an oval of white for his body and make a slit for each arm and roll them out to make
them skinny. Flatten out the ends for the hands and trim them off straighten them. Cut
a chunk out for the thumb to make it shorter. And then cut it so he has three fingers and
you can round out each of the top of those fingers. Roll out some black and add it in
place where his hips are. Trim it and split it to make the shorts.
Then cut a ball of black fondant in half to make his shoes.
Add some strips around his shoulders for where the back pack straps are.
Now for his legs roll some white fondant around spaghetti.
to give it some strength. Add it into the shoe and then add a strip of black around
the leg for the sock. I suggest that you make the figures a few days ahead and let them
go firm before you add them to the cake. Then once you add him you can add a little
back pack on his back.
Add a little nose and a couple of indents for his eyes. Add a tiny ball of black to
each eye socket. Then add his sad face. Make a hole in the top of his head and add
some little tear drop shapes of black for his hair
At Number three is Percy Jackson. If you put all the spines together you get a cool picture,
so we are going to make that into artwork for the wall.
Firstly cut the buildings out of light brown fondant using a knife.
Add that piece to a teal coloured rectangle.
Dust some brown food colour on the base of the buildings for shading.
Then add teal waves over the top. We want to shade those too I'm just using some blue
powdered food coloring to do that. Continue to layer up the waves up making them
bigger at the front. Then use a knife to trim the edges so it is a nice neat rectangle again.
Roll some spheres of black, then flatten them out and add them along the top for the storm
Then mix some silver luster dust with either some lemon juice or some vodka and paint on
semi circles onto the clouds.
Percy Jackson is by Rick Riordan - no he's not related, different spelling. His novel
is interwoven with greek mythology. Percy is the son of Poseidon the Greek God of the
sea and is accused of stealing Zeus master lightning bolt.
So then we need to add some lightning strikes coming out of the clouds... and then we will
just paint those with gold luster dust.
Use some melted chocolate to add this artwork to the wall just behind the chair.
At number 2 the second most requested book was the
Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. You guys have requested this before so I've already
done a hunger games cake with the mocking jay pin I'll add that to the play list at
the end for you.
But for today we are going to make a white rose from president snow. Creepy. Cut out
circles of white fondant using a straw. Then roll them out even thinner like petals.
Roll the first one into a cylinder like it's the tight rose bud in the middle.
Then place three more petals in a line overlapping each other. Place the bud one on end and roll
it along the petals. Now repeat that but this time with
in a row and carefully roll that up.
Then roll a snake of dark green for a stem and add a leaf to one side and leave it to
dry out. Poke some spaghetti into the end of the rose
to make a hole for the stem and add tiny triangles of green around the base of the rose.
Hunger Games is also set in a post-apocolyptic dystopian future where Katniss is separated
from her family to compete for her life in the hunger games. From there in the subsequent
books she helps lead a revolution against Panem and President Snow.
Once that has dried out add the rose and the stem to the shelf above the fire.
At number one the book that has received the most votes by a long way was of course ... Harry
To make Harry Potter's face roll a ball of fondant for his head and then make it slightly
egg shaped. About half way up add two indents for the
eyes, then add two little black ovals of fondant into place. Add a highlight of white onto
each one to make him look alive. Then add a snake across the top of each eye like eyelashes.
For his glasses you want to roll a really tiny snake, bend it around into a circle.
I know his glasses are circle but I want you to make it slightly squashed so it fits around
his eyes better. And then use a snake into a little water to add it around the eyes there.
Then use a food safe marker to draw on the rest of the glasses.
Add a couple of small strips for his eyebrows. And another strip for his little smiley mouth.
Use some orange gel colour to paint on a crease on his chin, and then lighten that by dabbing
it with some paper towel. And then do the same for the scar above his
Cut a piece of black in this shape and roughen up along these edges for the edge of his hair.
Flip it over and add a snake of black to the underneath.
And do the same for the other side and then add them into place on his head. The extra
fondant underneath just helps lifts the hair up on the part line so it isn't completely
flat on his head. Take a ball of fondant and cut it into two
and press down on one side down using the paintbrush and add that into place for his
ears. For his body make a rectangle of white on a piece of spaghetti. And if you can let
that firm up first it will make this easier. Then split some fondant for his neck and add
it to the top of the body.
To make his tie add strips of yellow across the dark fondant. And then slice that to make
strips of the right stripey fabric that we want.
Take one strip and add another going over the top on an angle.
And then add some white to the front of his body. Add the tie into place and a couple
of extra bits either side of it for where it would normally go around the neck.
Then fold down the top of the white to make a collar for his shirt.
Cut out a V from some grey fondant and add it over the top of the body.
Just wrap it around and smooth it around the back. We are actually not going to see the
back of him so you can just smooth it off there. Then draw a line around the edge of
the v neck line and make ribbing lines using the end of the knife.
Add some creases to the side of the jumper then put a strip of yellow across the bottom
and a snake over the top and flatten it out using your finger.
Roll out some yellow fondant and add two pieces of maroon with their corners touching in the
Then cut out a tiny little shield shape. Add it into place on the jumper. Then use a food
safe marker to draw an outline around the edge. Then draw a rough lion shape for the
Now roll out two cylinders of black for this legs and add them to the chair.
Cut a ball in half for his shoes, and cut a wedge out of each sole to define the heel
and draw a line around the base. Add a shoe under each leg and then make indents
where the pants would be creased when he's sitting down.
Add some little laces onto each shoe.
And add his body into place on top of the legs.
And then add his head on top of that.
Then roll a snake and make is arms and hands just like we did for wimpy kid, but this time
give him four fingers. Add a little indent for each finger nail.
Roll out some grey and wrap it around the arm, press it down at the join and trim off
the excess. Then make an indent around the wrist and add ribbing lines around the edge
of the jumper there.
Use some water to add Harry's arms to the side of his body and place his hands around

Welcome to How To Cook That I am Ann Reardon
Today we are making this LOUEY VUITTON alma bb alligator skin handbag cake. The real bag
thousand dollars. If you want to know how to spot a fake louis vuitton this
one has cake inside so it's definitely a fake.
Double the chocolate cake recipe and bake it in two trays lined with baking paper. And
if your trays are not as deep as mine then you can bake it in three if you need to.
Then print out the template for the bag cake, you can watch the cake recipe video and purchase
the template from the howtocookthat.net website. And I'll put a link in the description just
below the video to that site. Once our cake is baking in the oven we need to make the
hardware for our handbag, for the square rings roll out a long skinny snake of black and
then place some non-stick baking paper over your template and shape the fondant into the
size shown, trimming it at each end and then joining it together in the middle.
We need 4 of these but I'd suggest you make
roll out another snake and bend it into the shape of the top of the padlock. And then
cut the ends longer than they need to be in a pointy shape on the end there.
For the body part of the padlock roll a fat snake and then press down using the palm of
your hand to get it the width that you can see on the template there. Use a blade to
cut off the top and the base leaving you with the padlock shape.
Stand it up on one end and then using something round make an indent on the base. Then take
a drinking straw and squash it and bend it so it looks roughly like this sort of shape
and push that into to base to make the part where the key goes into.
Flip it over and mark the width of the shackle using a toothpick. And then use that toothpick
to push it in and then move it around in a circle making it big enough for the fondant
to fit in. Dip the tooth pick in a little water and dampen
each hole then place the shackle very gently on top making sure it's straight.
To make the logo on the front you'll need to lay the padlock flat. I'm just using some
fondant and some non-stick baking paper to support that shackle. Then bend a small piece
of card to the right shape using your template as a guide and then press it in to the front
of the fondant to make that L and then the V. Then take an even smaller piece and use
it to put the tops on your letters just indenting them there.
Then to make the pull for the zip place the template over the black fondant and cut it
out. And then use your blade to mark and cut out the holes as well and you'll need two
of those. For the studs roll out some fondant and using
something round cut out circles of black, you only need
so you can choose the best ones. Dip a dry paintbrush into gold luster dust
and then dust all of your hardware to make it golden. And it works out the best golden
colour if you start wight he black fondant if you start with white or something else
it just doesn't come up looking the same. Remember to turn them over and do both sides
for all of them except the studs you don't need to do that for those.
Once you're done you can just sweep up any excess dust and reuse that later.
To make your handle of your cake roll out a thick snake of lively pink or whatever colour
you're making your bag in and place it over the template. Then from where it starts to
get fatter use your rolling pin and roll it out. Trim off the ends and make it narrow
enough for that fondant to easily fit through the square rings that we have. Place the ring
over then bring the fondant carefully around an through the middle and then trim it off
at the top to make it neat and flatten it onto your handle.
Take some spaghetti and push it into the handle under the rings, this will give it the support
it needs when we add it to the cake. When you do this I also add some baking paper just
above the spaghetti under the ring there just to lift it up on a forward angle, I didn't
do that and so it was hard when I was adding the handle to the cake because it was on the
wrong angle which makes them just hard to get on without breaking off.
At the join push down on each side and across the ring. Then take a toothpick and add a
stitching lines around on those indents. To make the alligator skin pattern you can either
draw it on using a smooth object or I made my own shapes out of aluminum flashing which
made it much faster and then you can just push them on.
Now we are ready to move on to the actual cake part. To make a simple syrup add equal
parts by volume of sugar and water to a sauce pan. Then if you like you can add flavouring,
I am using some instant coffee. Heat that until the sugar dissolves and then stir in
some vanilla and let it cool.
Level the top of one of your cakes and then trim off the very end. Place your base template
piece over the top and cut out three pieces in that size And then use that remaining little
strip for the top section of the cake.
Take the other cake and cut two of the middle template size and another one of the base
size. Place some frosting on your cake board and
then your first base sized layer of cake. Brush it with the coffee simple syrup,. Now
what the simple syrup does is it just keeps the cake really moist it doesn't make it soggy
it just gives it that real moist mouth feel and it can also add flavor if you've added
flavoring to it.
Add a layer of frosting and then the next base and continue that until you've stacked
four of them. Check on your template that your cake is up to the middle line that is
markers there. And then you'll want to swap to the middle
cake shapes. Put a middle cake piece on top, brush with simple syrup and top with frosting
and another layer of cake. Check with your template you should now be near the top. Add
be able to add your final top layer of cake and making sure that it is all straight.
Put the side template on the end and use your knife to trim off the excess cake from each
side and make it round like the cake. Then from the front of the cake place the
front template at the top and round off both corners to match the template.
Then cover the whole thing in frosting, I am using my chocolate buttercream recipe for
this one. And that recipe is on the website as well. Once it is covered place it in the
fridge for about half and hour for the frosting to firm up. You can leave it for longer if
you've got other things to do. Then roll out your lively pink fondant and
lay it over the top of the cake. Smooth it on the front and back and at the sides squeeze
it together just using your thumbs and your fingers. Then use scissors to trim off the
large amount of excess and then continue to smooth it, if you have a fondant smoother
they are really helpful here, you don't have to have one but you can just use your hands.
Pinch that join tightly and trim off closely using scissors then run your finger or a smoother
over the top. Trim the excess from around the base.
Take some aluminium flashing and make some more shapes of various sizes and use them
to make indents in the cake. Start at the middle and try to make it roughly symmetrical
making the shapes smaller as you get towards the edges. Just have a look at a picture of
an actual bag to get an idea of what it is supposed to look like.
Once the whole cake is covered take a ruler and a blade and we want to cut out a strip
for the zip goes. Just cut two lines and then peel that fondant out the whole way around,
and then make sure that you smooth the icing that is underneath that gap so it is not going
to sink in on different levels. To make the zipper roll a long snake of pink
and then flatten it with a rolling pin Now I am using a slightly darker pink here than
I used for the cake so it give a little bit of contrast just like ti has on the bag.
Take a brand new hair comb and press it into the fondant, the firm plastic ones worked
best for this and I broken the comb in half so I only had the wide part of those little
rungs not the really narrow thin end. Brush some luster dust onto the baking paper.
And then flip your fondant over and gently rub it on the gold. You don't want to press
hard or you'll squash the pattern you just want to rub it on the gold to get it on there.
Flip it back over and cut it to the width of the gap of fondant that you took out of
your cake. And then drape it over the cake letting it
fit into the gap. Then using you knife and in the centre of
the zip just drag it up trying to stay in the middle there and around the top to give
the zip pattern. Take your base fondant template and cut the
zip off at the level that the base comes up to. Then cut off an extra bit so you are leaving
a square shape. Make a square out of balck fondant and dust it gold and pop it into place
Now for the base fondant strip cut it out to the width of the template.
Use a wet paintbrush to dampen the fondant at the base of the cake. Then roll up your
strip so it's easy to move and then unwrap it like your wrapping a bandage around the
bottom of your cake. When you get back to the start there just trim it so that it lines
up with the zip is. And then use your homemade cutters to make the alligator skin pattern
around the base.
Next take a tracing wheel, now you use these in sewing. And they are really useful in cake
decorating as well. What we are going to do is use it to make a row of evenly spaced stitching
dots along the top and the bottom of the strip and wither side of the zip. You can use a
toothpick to do this as well it will just take longer.
Take your handle and gently push the spaghetti into the cake, now this is where my rectangle
rings are set on the wrong angle they are going straight down and they need to be coming
outwards so that they fit not he cake. Now if you try and move them once they are set
like I did then they are going to break which is why I suggested you set them differently
earlier on. Now I'll have to do a little bit of repair work here just using some wet black
fondant to rejoin it on and then I'll just put some gold luster dust on that to cover
Now for the front detail cut out the shape using the template then squash down the top
end of it to make it thinner and re trim it to shape. Make an indent where the bend should
be and fold it up and around. Then place that curved part over the bottom of the rectangle
ring. and add your alligator pattern to it.
Take the bag outside and spray it with cake shine, I'll link to the one I'm using below
because everyone seems to find that hard to find. The reason I am doing this outside is
last time I did it in my kitchen even though I put paper fowl down it seemed to get everywhere
and was really hard to clean off the surfaces.
To make the key holder cut out the template from fondant and add the pattern and stitching
to it just like you did with the other details. Then make a long strip and split it at the
top. Thread it through the loop and then put the end through the split end and let it hang
down. Take your key holder and make a slit at the
top and poke that strip into it. Then spray that too to make that shiny.
Add your gold studs to just under the handles there and use your wheel to make stitching
details again. Then position the zip pulls and the padlock
how you want them on the top of the cake is ready to eat it.

[music: The boat song by youtube.com/setsailtv used with permission] *** *** Thomas Train Birthday Cake HOW TO COOK THAT Ann Reardon 3D fondant - YouTube !!! English English Add subtitles/CC
Welcome to How To Cook That I am Ann Reardon
Today we are making a 3D train cake. I have shown you how to make the face before and
have had lots and lots of requests or people begging fro help can you please show us how
to make the whole train cake, so here it is.
Firstly we are going to make the red fondant details
You can get the template for these and the recipe for the cake and all the fondant quantities
all those little details from the website howtocookthat.net I will put a link in the
description below this video.
Cut out the strips for the front and the back of your train. When I need bright coloured
fondant like this I buy it pre-coloured because otherwise you can tend to get pink instead
of red if you are trying to mix it yourself.
To make the little bumps at the front and the back roll a thick snake of red trim it
to size and then push it into shape by flattening each side, use a ruler to make sure it is
straight and put it into place in the centre of the red strips.
Then take the template for the side red strip and roll out some fondant fairly thickly for
this because this strip sticks out from the side of the cake a little bit. And trim around
the template and then flip it over and cut a second one.
Next roll out some blue fondant and cut out the shapes for the side of the cake making
sure that you have two of everything and with the odd shape make sure you flipped it over
when you are cutting the second one so the shape is facing the right way on each side
of the cake.
Roll out some red and place the blue pieces on top. Using a pizza cutter and a knife cut
around it leaving an even border of red the whole way around each piece .
You want these details to dry out so they need to made a few days ahead, but if you
want to be organized you can make them up to a month before you need to make the cake..
Then to make the dome roll a fat snake and then using the template trim it to size. If
the knife has squashed when you cut it then just roll it a little bit to round it out
out again. We are making it taller than it needs to be so we can push it into the cake.
For our wheels roll out some blue fondant and cut out
cut out the centre using a smaller cutter.
You do this using something round and cut around it with a knife but you might find
it easier to buy a circle cutter set, I'll link to the one that I used for this cake
in the description below.
Take a knife and trim off an edge of the inner circles
Then roll out some more fondant and cut out another
And then cut some really thin strips of blue. Trim them to the length shown and then place
two across each other so that it splits it into quarters, then put anther two in each
gap so you have a total of 6 strips going across your circle. Then take a tiny circle
cutter I am using the end of a piping tip and trim out that centre circle where all
the excess pieces have built up in high. Then cut another circle of blue and place it in
the centre of the wheel. Then I used a drinking straw cut another circle and place that on
top right in the centre.
Take the ring that we cut out just a moment ago, place that over the spokes and then little
semi circle just on one side of the wheel.
Repeat that until you have six wheels.
Roll out some yellow, if your fondant is sticking to the rolling pin add a little spray oil
and rub it onto your rolling pin and try again.
Cut around the number 1 using the template you will need one of those for each side.
Then place these onto some red fondant and cut around them leaving a little border of
Find all the parts of the template that say cut from black and cut those out. Roll a skinny
snake of black and cut to the length shown.
Then roll a fat snake and cut it to the length for the funnel, cut a strip of black and wrap
it around one end using a tiny bit of water to make it stick. Then set that aside to dry.
Place your black rectangles onto some yellow fondant and cut around them and leave them
to dry too. Roll a thin snake of yellow and cut them to the same length and round them
on the ends. These will go at the front of the train.
Now to make our bumpers, roll some red fondant out thickly and using a straw cut some cylinders.
Put a tiny bit of water on the red rectangle that we made earlier and add the cylinder
onto that and then take one of your black circles and put them on top. And repeat that
on the other piece.
Again using a tiny amount of water add the number
Then cut another two circles from black, place them on some yellow fondant and cut around
them using a knife or a circle cutter if you have one so that you have a yellow border.
I already have a detailed video showing the face as I said so I'll link to that one here,
it is an older video but it still explains it simply if you follow the method for making
it you'll find it really quite easy to do.
So now you have all of your details made ahead and you can just leave those uncovered to
dry. Leave them for a few days and they should be dried out after that and then you can store
them in an airtight container with baking paper underneath them until you are ready
to use them.
Now to assemble your cake. You will need frosting, a strong cake board, some cooled simple syrup
which is just half a cup of water and half a cup of sugar boiled until the sugar is dissolved.
And your cakes I am using two and a half quantities of the rich chocolate cake the recipe and
details for the cake and frosting, videos of how to make them all all of that is on
the website howtocookthat.net
Place a small amount of frosting on the board to stop the cake slipping when you move it.
Cut around your template and add the first layer of cake, cover it in frosting. Add the
next layer, some simple syrup which helps keep the cake moist and then add more frosting.
Continue to stack up the cake up layers up. Use off cuts from layers you have already
done to make one of your layers. And then look at the side of your cake and check that
you are up to the top of the rounded section.
Fold your cutting template to the length from the back of the train to the end of the part
that it sticking up. And cut more cake to this size.
And stack that on top Put your template in front again and fold
it to the width of the remaining section. Using off cuts cut two more layers of cake
and add them to the very top.
You should now have what looks like a strange set of steps.
Place your template against the cake and using a sharp serrated knife cut around the template.
If you don't trust your cutting ability to cut straight you can print two templates and
put one on either side of the cake to guide you when you are cutting it.
To make the rounded part in the centre cut out circles of cake and trim off one side.
So you just have a small semi circle Sandwich those together with buttercream and add them
to the middle of the cake. Then use your circle cutter to remove some cake from the next layer
down so that you have room to add two more complete circles in front of that. Don't add
them to the cake yet just join them to each other with buttercream and check that they
Cover the whole cake in frosting then look at it from the front round off a little bit
for the roof, you can do that before you add the frosting I just forgot.
Cover the circles of cake in frosting too. Then clean up your work area and put the cake
int he fridge for about an hour the frosting to firm up.
Roll out a long piece of black fondant and cut a strip. You can roll it up to make it
easier to move. Then unroll it as you wrap it around the base of the cake. Repeat that
with a strip of red.
Now add some grey to the front of the cake, use a fondant smoother to push it into place.
Next roll out a large piece of blue fondant and drape it over the entire cake. Use your
fingers gently smooth it in around the shape of the cake. lifting and lowering it on the
sids to smooth out any pleats.
I often get asked in the comments if I make this cake for someone how much should I charge
them for it. I suggest that you look up 3D cakes at stores local to see how much they
are charging in the area near you because it is very different in country to country.
Where I live detailed thomas cakes in this size sell for just under $
Use your fondant smoother to smooth out the sides and then feel for where the top of the
red fondant is and then trim it off in a straight line along the edge.
Next make some thin snakes of red fondant, you can do that either by rolling them or
using a fondant extruder, I will ink to where i got this one in the description below.
Trim them to the right length and place them over the top of the rounded part of the train.
To add the blue dome take something round and cut out a circle out, I am using the back
of a piping tip. And then push the dome in until it is the right height.
Trim the very top of each wheel, and then add a little water to the side of the cake
and put your wheels in place. Then add the red side piece over the top.
Add the front piece to the front of the train and the back to the other side.
Measure the distance between the back of the train and the bumper and cut a strip of grey
to go over the top of that area.
Add a little water to the top of the red on the sides of the train and place a thin strip
of grey over the top there.
Next add all of your side details that we made earlier. This is where making the details
ahead makes getting the cake together a breeze when you are making it the day before the
Roll out an extra strip of grey and add it over the front to make it nice and smooth.
Then add a strip of black and the strange shaped black details that we made earlier
should just go around that rounded smooth section at the front.
Roll out some more black, cut a strip and wrap it around the circle of cake that we
covered in frosting earlier. And the add the face to the front of that just leave that
to one side for the moment so the fondant can stick to that buttercream really well.
Cut a rectangle of black and place it across the on top for the roof section. Place a strip
of black across the top of the back section and then I've just cut little bits of black
fondant to look like coal you could put lollies in the back here or whatever you are wanting
in the back of your train.
Finally add the face to the front of the cake Cut out a circle from the top and poke in
the funnel into the top.
One question I get asked a lot is what do you do with all of these cakes once they are
finished? If you keep watching I will show you where this one ended up. Others I either
give away on instagram - so make sure you follow howtocookthat if you live locally and
others I just cut up and freeze for school lunches.
This particular thomas cake was a birthday present for one of my little boys good friends.
