  • Welcome to How To Cook That I am Ann Reardon

  • Today I am going to show you how to make your very own poppin cookin style kit from scratch.

  • A few weeks ago I did a poppin cookin video and had lots of requests for a mini version

  • that you can make yourself that actually tastes good and so that you know exactly what is

  • going into those powders. So I've been doing some experimenting and

  • designing and its finally ready... I'll show you how to make the cake first using the kit

  • first and then I'll show you how to make the kit and the powders themselves.

  • So in your kit when you open it up you'll have all this cool looking stuff. We've got

  • a mini piping bag, a measuring cup, three cupcake cases, some decorations, Three different

  • powders we've got a fondant mix, chocolate icing and cake mix there.

  • A 1/4 of a teaspoon measure, a couple of sheets of baking paper and of course the instructions

  • so you know what to do.

  • The instructions say to add 6 scoops of water to the cake mix. Add those just add those

  • in making sure each of your scoops are full to the top. Then stir it together, try and

  • make sure you don't have too much cake mix on the side try and get it all down the bottom.

  • Then place that in the microwave on medium heat for 1 minute. Then take that out and

  • leave it in its case to cool.

  • Add the fondant mix to a new case and add just 1 scoop of water. Mix it around and it

  • looks like nothing is happening, but that's fine don't add any more water to it.

  • Microwave on high for 15 seconds and then stir it really well. Tip it out onto some

  • baking paper and it's going to be warm but you want to knead it until it is smooth. You

  • want to use it straight away because once it is cold it will set firm.

  • Roll out a snake and cut 5 even lengths for candles. Give them a roll to roll them at

  • the top were you've just cut them so they are rounded.

  • Then look in your decorations and find one of those darker coloured sprinkles and poke

  • one into the top of your candle. Repeat that with each of your candles and then leave those

  • to go firm. Take the left over fondant and roll it into

  • a ball, cut it into two then roll it into a ball and flatten it out using the palm of

  • your hand to make it the same size as the cupcake case.

  • By now your cake should be cool, expand the edges of the case and then tip the cake out

  • over onto some baking paper. Make two cuts through the cake to make three

  • layers of cake. Then stack them back up again going cake fondant cake fondant and cake on

  • top. Using your hands gently roll the cake between

  • you hands to smooth off the sides there so that you have a nice neatly shaped cake. This

  • is just making the fondant and the cake straight on both sides.

  • Place that on top of the measuring cup. Now for our chocolate frosting pour the powder

  • into the last case and then add one, two, three, four scoops of water. Then stir that

  • around until it clumps together and looks a bit like wet sand.

  • Microwave that on high for 10 seconds and then stir it to get out any lumps you need

  • to just push the back of your spoon down to make sure all of that powder and everything

  • is mixed completely. Pour that frosting over your mini cake. and use the spoon to make

  • sure it covers all of the sides. Now place the left over frosting into the piping bag

  • and pipe a pattern around the top edge. I am just doing loops down and up and around

  • and down. Once you've sone that if you have a mini plate

  • you can transfer the cake to that. If not put it on a clean sheet of baking paper. Pipe

  • some more frosting around the base of the cake to make it look neat.

  • Then add your decorations to the top, you can do that randomly or in a pattern just

  • use your imagination it's you cake. Then add the candles that you made to the top of the

  • cake.

  • And you can really eat the whole cake without feeling guilty, you could probably eat the

  • whole cake in one mouthful let's face it. And once you've finished eating all the cake

  • you can eat the candles too.

  • Now to make the actual kit... lets start with the cake mix

  • To make enough cake mix for 10 kits you will need

  • plain / all purpose flour sugar

  • baking powder dark chocolate

  • cocoa powder and powdered whole egg. I just bought this

  • in a container at the supermarket I'll list all the recipe quantities for this

  • on my website howtocookthat.net in grams and ounces and cups and everything that you need.

  • I'll add a link to that in the description below.

  • Place all of that into a blender and put it on pulse and pulse it for a few seconds and

  • then put it onto blend . just ot make sure that all of that chocolate is broken down

  • into a fine powder. Place that in a bowl and we'll measure what

  • we need for each kit once we've made the other powders as well.

  • FONDANT MIX For the fondant type mixture what you need

  • is some icing sugar or powdered sugar and some compound white chocolate.

  • Place them both into your blender. And pulse and blend them just like we did before.

  • I love the look of this one it looks so soft and fluffy.

  • CHOCOLATE FROSTING Now for the chocolate frosting. We need to

  • blend up icing or powdered sugar, cocoa powder and white compound chocolate.

  • Blend it together. Of course if you want to make less kits you can halve the recipe you

  • don't have to make 10. Then for each kit

  • Put two tablespoons plus one teaspoon of cake mix powder into a bag.

  • Then for the fondant add 1 tablespoon and two teaspoons of the white powder.

  • And for the frosting add one, two, three tablespoons of mixture into a bag.

  • Now for each one fold the top over several times, seal it with tape and then place your

  • label on the front. Then add the decorations into another bag.

  • now you'll need some sprinkles for the top of the candles and then you can use whatever

  • other decorations you want to add there. You can print out the instructions, labels

  • and box cover from the website howtocookthat.net, and as I said I'll link to that below. And

  • I'm also using some patterned card to cover the box. The box I have is just an arnotts

  • shapes box if you live in Australia otherwise just look for a food box that you have in

  • your pantry that's nearly empty and cover that. Then add the printout to the front.

  • So in our kit you need to put in the three powders, the decorations, two little sheets

  • of baking paper, three cupcake cases, I found that these strong lined ones worked much better

  • than the paper ones for getting a good shaped cake. The instructions of course or they won't

  • know what to do. A quarter of a teaspoon measure a measuring cup and a mini piping bag. And

  • to make that just trim a normal one shorter.

  • Then place all of that into a bag and into the box and seal it up.

  • Now I have one of these kits left and I want to know which youtuber you think I should

  • send it to. Who would you like to see make this mini chocolate cake?
