LAYERED EARTH CAKE – NERDY NUMMIES

LAYERED EARTH CAKE – NERDY NUMMIES


Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy
Nummies! Earth day is coming up fast so I wanted to
make something Planet Earth themed, and you may not know but my very first video on
my YouTube channel was a video of my sister and I volunteering for Earth Day. We love
to do this every year, we love to give back, even if it’s just in a small way. It just
makes our day, something near and dear to our hearts! So, today we are gonna be making an Earth
Themed cake, and, the design of it is super cool because when you cut into it, it’s
gonna show the different layers, and they’re gonna be colored! Woo! Alright, so let’s
get started! The things you will need, will be: 1 cup of
regular, all purpose flour, 2/3 cup of self rising flour, 1 cup of almond meal, 1-1/3
cup of sugar, 4 eggs, 1 teaspoon almond extract, 1-1/3 cup butter, yellow and red
food coloring. Now for the 3 layers of our cake, we are gonna
be using cake balls, for our core. Here I’ve pre-made some, and you can use
your favorite recipe. I just used a white cake recipe so that the color will be white.
Then for the second layer, I found this 3 inch sphere mold online, I’ll put a link
down below if you’re interested in checking it out. And then for our third layer, I found
this pan set a Michaels, it’s by Wilton. And technically on the box it said 3-D Sports
Ball Pan Set, but it is perfect for planets and it was the perfect proportional size and
I’ll put a link down below if you’d like to go check that out because it just matched
up shape wise perfectly. Alright, now let’s put it all together! The first thing that we’re gonna do is whisk
together our flours and almond meal into this little bowl. Just whisk and then set it off to
the side. The next thing that we’re gonna do is cream
together our butter and sugar. I’m using a stand mixer, but you can also
use a hand mixer, that works just fine. Now that this is all mixed up, we are gonna
add our eggs, 1 at a time. So we’re gonna add an egg, and mix, egg
and mix. Now we’re gonna add our flour mixture, I’m
just gonna add it 1 scoop at a time, while it’s mixing, until it’s all combined. Final step, we’re gonna add a little bit
of yellow food coloring, and then mix it up! Just a reminder, this is enough for 1 batch,
but we want to make 2, I have another batch off to the side, and that 1 I’ve dyed red. Our butter cake batter all ready and now we’re
going to fill the 3 inch silicone molds with the batter, and I’ve got this little
cookie sheet on the bottom, so that when you place it in the oven it’s not so wiggly, it has
some stability. So what you do is you’re gonna take a spoon,
and it’s really thick, it’s gonna hold it’s shape! Typically, butter cakes don’t rise as much
as a regular cake, so you can fill it almost to the top, and it’s OK if it spills over
because we’ll take off the excess later. Once the mold is filled, you’re gonna take
your little cake balls, and remember these are vanilla white cake balls, that’s what I’m using. And you’re gonna place them in the center, and you’re really gonna press them down there, I wiggle
them. Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, yeah! Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo! Now that we’ve got
our little cake balls pressed in, it’s time to bake! You’re gonna heat your oven to 350
degrees and then we’re gonna bake for about 30 minutes. But keep your eye on ‘em, because
some molds bake faster than others and, this is the perfect time to make your
second batch of batter and dye it red. Once your cakes have baked, make sure they’ve
had plenty of time to cool, and now we’re just gonna flip them upside down and we’re gonna
cut off this outer edge to make them completely smooth. Da-doo! See, like this. Now I’m gonna pick my second favorite and
do the same thing. Next, we’re gonna grease our outer crust
pans. And for these pans specifically they say to grease them with shortening, so don’t
use butter or oil, or baking spray, just use shortening. After you’ve greased your pan, we’re gonna
scoop in some red butter batter. And this time, we’re gonna fill our pan
about 75% full. Once your pans are filled with batter, we’re
gonna take our spoon, and right down the middle, we’re gonna make a little pocket,
just press the batter to the sides. Take your cake and place it right in the middle,
and now we’re gonna press it down. Then what I like to do is take my spoon, pull
the batter over the top so it kind of locks it into place so that it won’t rise too
much. Now our cake are assembled, and they’re
ready to bake! You’re gonna heat your oven to 350 degrees
and we’re gonna bake them for about 45 minutes to an hour. Just keep your eye on them, and
if you’ve got a cake tester, use it! Or you can use a little skewer or toothpick,
but you just stick it down into the cake, pull it out, and if nothing sticks to it,
it’s good! Once your cakes have baked, give them plenty
of time to cool, and then we’re gonna level off the top. Got a little bit of this
brown stuff, we don’t want it! Get out of here! So I’m taking a sharp cutting knife, just
being careful, little sawing motions. AW! So cool! And now, we’re gonna level
our other cake. Cakes are leveled, and now you’re gonna
pick 1 of them, flip it upside down, boom! And then you’er just going to cut off the
bottom so that our globe can sit freely. Now we’re gonna take a little bit of buttercream
frosting and we’re gonna put a thin layer on the cake. Wee-ooh! Wee-ooh! Wee-ooh! Wee-ooh! Then I’m gonna use a spatula, just spread
it around evenly. And then we’re gonna put on the top. Now you’re just gonna spread blue frosting
all over the cake and use a spatula to smooth it out. I just finished frosting the cake and to add
a little bit of texture, just for some fanciness, I took this spatula, and I just
dabbed, dab, dab, dab, dab, dab, dab, dab, all the way around the globe! And, for the final decoration step, I’ve
got some buttercream frosting, I dyed it green with a little bit of food coloring, and then
I’ve got a coupler and a number 1 tip at the end for a little bit more control. I’ve
actually gotten so many requests about how to assemble 1 of these decorating bags, it’s
really, really easy, so I made a video with Wilton, I’ll put a link down below, go check
it out! Easy tutorial of how to assemble these decorating bags. Time to draw our continents, doesn’t have
to be perfect, just do the best you can. I even bought this little, this was a dollar,
I think at world market. It’s like a little foam, play, globe ball, and
I’m going to use this as my reference. Now I’m gonna take some of this white frosting
that we used before and just make little spots of white, all over the globe,
for clouds! Ta-da! Here is the Planet Earth Cake that we made
today, in celebration of Earth Day! I hope you guys have a happy Earth Day and
I will be posting lots of pictures of this cake on Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter and
Facebook! And if you guys make this cake or any other
Earth Day treats, please send me photos, I just love seeing your baking creations,
I get a big kick out of it. Alright, thanks again, bye-bye!
