  • Welcome to How To Cook That I am Ann Reardon

  • Today we are making an adventure time cake, with finn the human

  • and beemo.

  • Finn is quite tall and skinny so I'm making a smaller sized cake so that just used two

  • round cakes to make him, you can scale it up and make him bigger if you want if you

  • have lots of people coming to our party. Take your cakes and level off the top. Cut

  • out two full circles using a circle cutter. If you don't have one just get a small round

  • bowl or something like that and cut around it and then we want to use the edges to piece

  • together to make another circle. Repeat that on the other cake so you have

  • 6 circles altogether. Take a cake stand and put some buttercream

  • on top to stop the cake moving. Then add your first circle, you want it towards one side

  • but not right on the edge. Add more buttercream then another layer of

  • cake. For the cake and frosting recipes that I am

  • using just visit the website howtcookthat.net I'll put a link in the description below.

  • When you get to a pieced together layer then add some buttercream on the edge of each piece

  • so it kind of glues them altogether then add that on top.

  • Now because the cake is tall and skinny it is going to need some support after 4 layers

  • just to stop it toppling over to give it a bit more support.

  • So push a cake pop stick down the middle and using scissors grab it right at the level

  • of the cake and pull it out again. Cut it off at that level then cut two more to the

  • same length.

  • Then poke each of those back into your cake all the way down until you hit the cake stand.

  • And then take a circle of card and wrap it in foil so it doesn't absorb the moisture

  • from the frosting. And then add ore frosting and the remaining

  • layer of cake. So we have used 5 layers of cake for the body which means you have one

  • circle left that we will use in a minute.

  • Using a serrated knife shape the top layer to be rounded all the way around the edge.

  • Then cover the whole thing in a thin coat of buttercream and place it in the fridge

  • to firm up. It is hot here today so this buttercream is fairly soft.

  • To make Finn's pack we are going to use the remaining circle. To make it rounded like

  • his backpack looks take all the other cake scraps and crumble out the middle cake crumbs

  • leaving the browned outer edge of cake. then add some buttercream and mix it together just

  • like if you're making cake pops. Place the circle onto some non-stick baking paper and

  • add the mixture on top and round it out to make the shape of his backpack and then place

  • that in the fridge to firm up. Take your fin cake out of the fridge and completely

  • cover it in another layer of frosting. Then take some acetate or thin bendy plastic,

  • curve it and run it up the sides of the cake to smooth it out. Then add the backpack on

  • the cake stand next to finn there if you rest it on your hand and then slide the paper out

  • underneath it should go on nice and smoothly. Then if it is too big to fit nicely like mine

  • is just trim a bit off and make it so it fits in there.

  • Roll out some green fondant, trim off one side to make it straight and drape it over

  • the backpack covering two thirds of it. Use your fingers to smooth it out around and

  • down to the bottom of the platter and then trim it off using a knife. Repeat that at

  • the top of the pack but use a lighter colour fondant and overlap it a little.

  • Roll out some blue fondant for his t-shirt, trim it at the top and base and wrap it around

  • his body. Now I know this is the wrong colour for his shirt it should be lighter but I'm

  • actually running short on fondant today so we are going to make his clothes a little

  • bit different, when you make it you can make them the right colours.

  • Squeeze it together at the back so that the tow sheets of fondant are well joined and

  • then trim it off using scissors and run your finger along the join to smooth it.

  • Add some white fondant over the top and lift it up and smooth it down, lift it up and smooth

  • it down as you go around. then measure with a ruler and mark at 10cm or 4 inches and do

  • that in a few places around, if I don't do this I always end up cutting it crooked like

  • it is going down on an angle so I like to mark a few different marks so I know where

  • the knife should go. Then gently press the knife in on that level we don't want to cut

  • into our cake, we don't want to cut through the blue fondant until the white fondant comes

  • away.

  • Roll a ball of fondant and then roll it into a rounded cylinder. Cut it on a diagnol in

  • the middle. Then take one of your pieces and bend the smaller thinner end around your thumb.

  • And then add them to the top of your cake. On each side.

  • Lets give him purple pants today why not. If you're a mum making this for your kids

  • make sure you get it the right colour, they are actually supposed to be dark blue.

  • Cut a long strip and wrap it around the base of your cake.

  • Roll out another strip of purple and a long snake of skin colour fondant. And use your

  • finger to add a little bit of water to the purple fondant and then squash down the end

  • of the skin colour and wrap around the purple around it. Use your scissors to trim it off

  • at the join. Then flatten that end out and then cut it around so that it looks rounded

  • and add it to the side of your cake for his leg. Trim it off just above the bench height

  • and repeat that for the other leg. Now to make his shoes, roll a snake of black cut

  • two shoe length pieces and then trim the leg off a little bit higher and using some water

  • to join the black to the leg bending it under so that it looks a bit like a boot. And do

  • that on the other leg as well. Now roll out a thin snake of white and just wrap it around

  • the join there so that it looks like a sock. You will notice I have some non-stick baking

  • paper under his feet, and that is so the feet don't stick to the bench top.

  • To make his face I've just printed out a picture of Finn and I'll put the one in the size that

  • I'm using on the website so you can print that out if you want or just do an image search

  • and find your own. As I said you can scale it up and make it bigger if you need to.

  • And then use your finger just rub around the edges of it to smooth them off so its rounded.

  • Peel it off the paper and then using a little water on the back to make it stick just add

  • it to the front of your cake. Then use your printout to mark where his eyes and mouth

  • are. His mouth is quite high on his face compared to a normal face. Roll a tiny ball of black

  • and add them into place for his eyes. And then use an edible marker to draw on the mouth.

  • For the backpack roll out some light green and dark green snakes of fondant and join

  • them together like we did with the leg and foot and then just add them for straps onto

  • the pack.

  • To make Beemo roll out some pale green and then cut a chocolate bar in two, I am using

  • a Mars bar but if you can't get them where you are any chocolate bar will do, preferably

  • one that is bit boxy rectangular type shape. Then wrap them up like a present and smooth

  • out your sides. And you can make Beemo out of solid fondant if you want, i just prefer

  • to have something yummy in the middle.

  • Add your little shapes to the front and then cut out a square for the screen and use your

  • knife to round out the corners. Put that on top and then add a bit of fondant for the

  • mouth and then draw on then eyes. Add a strip of grey and then roll a really

  • thin snake of yellow and cut two short bits, cross them over each other and then add them

  • on top. And then just use your knife to straighten up the edges so it looks like the cross control

  • bit. Add the last button, I don't have any red so it's going to be pink today, all our

  • colours are muddled up. Then turn him on the side and add the 7 little

  • indents and the letters BMO. Using a little water add him into place on

  • Finn's knee resting on the back pack. You may also need to add a little bit of white

  • fondant underneath at the back to support him.

  • To make Finn's arms follow the same method we did for his legs.

  • Now he looks really weird with no arms. Join them onto the side of the body and wrap one

  • around Beemo like it's holding him into place. Cut it off at the right length and then flatten

  • it a bit at the end to make his hand. And use your scissors to make two cuts for his

  • fingers. Add the other arm in place just letting it rest on his leg and make the hand in the

  • same way. Now Beemo needs some legs. So roll out a snake

  • of Beemo green and cut a short section and bend it up and one end to make his foot.

  • Using a spatula or a knife so you can get in underneath there just push the leg end

  • onto the base of Beemo and then add your other leg too.

  • Make his cute little arms just like we made Finn's and then add it coming out of the 'O'

  • there and then holding onto Finn's hand. For the other one, wrap it around and attach

  • then it to the other side of his body.

  • Then draw a quick backdrop and you have an Adventure Time cake.
