  • Welcome to How To Cook That I am Ann Reardon Today we are making a candy crush cake. Candy

  • Crush is a free game that is currently being played 700 million times a day. Despite being

  • free to download it is currently the top grossing app in the itunes store but we'll talk more

  • about that later. To make your cake the first thing you need

  • to do is bake a cake, I made mine 15cm square on the top. And completely cover it in buttercream

  • You can use the raspberry buttercream or you can use plain buttercream and colour it with

  • a little red food colour. The cake recipes and buttercream recipes are all on the website

  • howtocookthat.net There is a link in the description below the video.

  • Use your spatula to smooth it out as much as you can and run the spatula up the sides

  • and gently fold over any bits that are sticking up on the top edge by just smoothing it into

  • the middle of the cake.

  • The candy crush icon has rounded corners so run your spatula up and then around each corner

  • to smooth it.

  • Then wipe your cake platter clean as you can using a damp piece of paper towel being careful

  • not to bump the cake.

  • Put the remaining buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a round nozzle. If you don't

  • have a piping bag you can use a plastic bag and cut the corner off but it will not be

  • as rounded as if you use a nozzle for this one.

  • Pipe a cylinder of buttercream along the top edge, turning it when you get to the corners

  • so they are rounded.

  • Next we need to fill in and smooth that gap that is along the side of the cake.

  • Just get a little extra buttercream on your spatula and spread it across the gap. Then

  • use the straight edge of the spatula to smooth out the side again.

  • Place that in the fridge for at least 30 minutes for the buttercream to firm up.

  • While it is doing that Print out your logo in the size of your cake, I have put the logo

  • in the size I am using here on the website so you an download that there.

  • Put some non-stick baking paper over the top and use the picture as you template to spread

  • some chocolate into the right circle size, making sure there is more chocolate in the

  • middle so it is not completely flat. To smooth the surface just lift and lower

  • the edges of the paper a couple of times. Take some colourful round candies, I am using

  • soft sugar pearls which I purchased from the baking section of the local supermarket. And

  • sprinkle them over the top making sure that you get an even spread.

  • Even though candy crush being free to download but it is currently bringing in $850,000 a

  • day for the game developers. If you are a candy crush addict, I want to know what level

  • are you up to and how much have you spent on it? I am only on a very early level 19

  • and I haven't spent any money on it at all. And if you don't want to get ripped off or

  • if you have little kids playing this game you can turn off inapp purchases by going

  • to settings, general, restrictions, inapp purchases, you can turn them back on at anytime.

  • So if you do want to go back on a different app and buy something you you can turn them

  • back on and then turn them back off again. While you are there why not also set your

  • age restrictions to an appropriate level and your rating restrictions for movies, games,

  • and TV shows. Get another sheet of baking paper and pipe

  • lots of chocolate over the jelly bean shape and smooth it out along the top. Let it set

  • then To make the base of the jelly bean so that it sits up a bit higher flip it over

  • and add m&ms the the underside. You could make a second half of the jelly bean and and

  • stick the two together but it sits better on the cake if the jelly bean is a bit flat

  • on the underside rather than completely rounded. Take a knife and scrape off any little lumps

  • in the chocolate Roll out some red fondant and use it to cover

  • the jelly bean, wrapping it around underneath. Gently rub with your finger to smooth out

  • the surface.

  • For the other candy pipe the shape put of chcolate, you can Leave it plain chocolate

  • or add m&m's into the middle like I am here to build it up and to make a nice oval shape

  • . Then add a circle of m&m's around the edge. Let that set then pipe some more chocolate

  • over the top of them and use a knife to smooth out the edges. You can of course make these

  • from solid fondant but I just think they taste much better if they are have chocolate and

  • lollies in the middle.

  • Once that one is set cover it in orange fondant, use scissors to trim it up and tuck it under,

  • then use your finger to smooth it out just like we did with the jelly bean.

  • If you want it shiny which looks quite good with this one you can paint it with a mixture

  • of half vodka and half water. The alcohol content will evaporate off and it will stay

  • shiny for around 4 hours. So if you are not serving it straight away you will want to

  • paint this glaze on later once they are on the cake.

  • Take a tiny bit of white fondant and roll it between your finger and the palm of your

  • hand. Add it to the candy where the white highlights are on the logo.

  • Cut out the inside section of your logo and check that it easily fits onto the centre

  • of your cake, if not just trim a little extra off the edges.

  • Roll out some white fondant and using the cutout as your template cut around the square

  • with your rounded corners. Then cut the blue off your paper template

  • and put it back on top and use some blue powdered food colour and a dry paintbrush to dust some

  • colour over the top making it darker at the edges. Take the template off and blend it

  • in a little. If you cant get hold of blue powdered colour

  • then just use your gel colour to colour this fondant blue before you roll it out.

  • Take your cake out of the fridge and place some paper towel over the edge. Gently rub

  • it with a fondant smoother to make sure sure your edges are completely flat. If you don't

  • have a fondant smoother you can use a book or anything that you've got that is flat.

  • Repeat that on each side.

  • Take some white fondant and roll it out thinly then using a ruler and a pizza cutter cut

  • thin strips of white. Add the strips of white bringing them up and

  • overlapping them over the curved buttercream and then trim them to the right length at

  • the base.

  • Make sure that they are evenly spaced and you can use an off cut of white to measure

  • the gap between each one as you add the next one.

  • Once you've added all of your white strips use a fondant smoother or book to gently push

  • on the sides to make sure your fondant is flat and stuck to the buttercream.

  • Add your blue fondant square that we made earlier . Then the orange candy, followed

  • by the giant chocolate freckle and finally your jelly bean. And you cake is ready to

  • serve.

  • Thanks for watching and don't forget to subscribe and join us next week for a dessert followed

  • by chocolate the next week and then back to cake. You can put all of your cake requests

  • in the comments section below. Have a great week.
