  • Welcome to How To Cook That I am Ann Reardon Today we have the new release of the surprise

  • cakes App. I'll show you first how to make this cake and then...

  • It's so exciting!! Drumroll For those of you unfamiliar with my app, once you've made your

  • cake or your cupcake, you print out the marker and place it on top. Open up the app, choose

  • the one you are using and walah a 3D pirate ship appears on top of your cake.

  • How easy was that, so much quicker than making it all out of fondant. Because it is 3D you

  • can look all around it, you can fire the cannons, you can make the sails go up and down. You

  • can even see down into the water and see sharks and things going past. Oh my goodness this

  • is one of those apps you really have to try it to see what it is like. Because it is 3D

  • it is really hard to show it in a video.

  • This is the fourth release of the SURPRISE CAKES app it already lets you put fireworks,

  • dragons or unicorns on your cakes. If you already have the app thank you so much for

  • your support and getting in early on - this is a free update for you, just click on update

  • and head over to howtocookthat.net to print out the marker for the pirate ship.

  • If you don't have Surprise Cakes app yet then you can get it what are you waiting for it

  • is on the itunes app store or google play.

  • Now how to make the cake. You will need 2 quantities of buttercream

  • and three round sponge cakes. And I'll link you to my recipes and videos for those on

  • this weeks howtocookthat.net blog post.

  • Between the layers of this one I am putting apple sauce and some crepe dentelle for a

  • bit of crunch. To keep it crunchy we need to mix it in with 1 cup of the buttercream.

  • Now the filling will give it an apple crumble flavour, you can use just plain buttercream

  • or whatever flavoured filling the person you are making it for likes.

  • Split you cakes in two, add apple sauce followed by the buttercream crunchy filling. Place

  • that on your plate or cake stand and stack them up.

  • Place the rest of your buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a large nozzle and

  • pipe it around the cake, if you don't have a piping bag or you don't have a large nozzle

  • that's fine you can just spread that buttercream around the cake. This just makes it a lot

  • quicker doing ti this way.

  • Take a spatula and smooth out the top and then the sides of the cake as well.

  • use your spatula to clean off the cake platter. Roll out some light blue fondant and place

  • it over the top of the cake and smooth it down the sides.

  • roll out some more and cut a straight edge and use your knife to cut a wavy edge Like

  • some waves going up and down. Roll out a long snake of white and add it along the top to

  • make our wave.

  • using your fingers put a small amount of water around the top of the cake, this helps the

  • fondant to stick, but if you use too much it's just going to slide off.

  • Wrap the strip of fondant around the cake. Then repeat that with another strip of pale

  • blue.

  • The other way you can do the same thing is to add the strip of wavy colour and then once

  • it is in place add a tiny bit of water and the snake of white on top. Either way is fine

  • just continue to add more layers changing the colour of it to a deeper blue as you go,

  • until you get all the way to the bottom of the cake.

  • To make some gold coins for our treasure chest roll out some dark coloured fondant. Then

  • use a straw to cut out little circles. Then using a dry paintbrush just dust them with

  • some gold luster dust.

  • Roll a cylinder of brown fondant and then cut off a slice for the top of the treasure

  • chest. Shape the left over piece into a rectangle

  • box, the same width as your lid. Using your knife make indents for the planks

  • of wood then run the tip of the knife down gently to make it look like it's got a wood

  • grain. Do the same on the top of the chest.

  • For the inside we want it to look like it is actully a deep treasure chest. So just

  • make a line along each edge and take out a little of the fondant so that it dips down

  • there. Now take your straw and make indents all over the inside like it is full of coins.

  • And then dust it with gold luster dust just on the area where the coins are.

  • Then add some of your loose coins on top and it looks like treasure.

  • Take some paler brown roll it out thinly and cut a strip and add those strips up the sides

  • of the front of the treasure chest and across the top of the lid there.

  • For the lock roll a tiny ball of fondant and make an indent in the middle of it, brush

  • it with gold, don't you love it how when you brush something with gold it goes from looking

  • ordinary to looking really good. Add that to the front of the chest.

  • For the lock on the top of the chest. Roll another ball, flatten it out with your finger.

  • Then use a straw to cut out a circle out of the centre. This will leave you with a skinny

  • donut, squash it a bit and add a little snake across the top, then trim each side. then

  • brush it to make it gold and add it onto the lid.

  • Now for our island take some sand coloured fondant and rounghly roll it making it skinnier

  • at the edges. Just using your rolling pin adn pushing down there. Using your knuckles

  • roughen up the surface.

  • Take some blue and some white fondant and put them together and swirl them together.

  • Now you can just twist it fold it twist it fold it and roll it between your hands. Now

  • the more you mix it the less noticeable the swirls will be so it up to you how much you

  • want to mix it. Roll it out then add a snake of white on one edge and continue to roll

  • that together. Place it around the edge of the island folding back the top white edge

  • there just so it is like waves splashing onto the beach of the island. Neaten up the edge

  • then add it to the top of the cake. again lifting up the outside edge so that it looks

  • like waves coming up.

  • Make an indent in the top of the sand I'm just using the back of a knife to do that.

  • And add your treasure chest with a few coins around it. Making that indent just makes it

  • look like the chest is heavy. So it is sinking into the sand there

  • Add the marker and make sure you position this it in the middle of the cake so the ship

  • sits in the right place. Just so you know if you scale the map marker here bigger or

  • smaller then your ship will be bigger or smaller which is good if you're doing a larger cake

  • or if you want to print out a massive one for the floor then you'll have a pirate ship

  • too.

  • And your cake is done ready to surprise the guests at the party.

  • Just a word of warning make sure you let them use the Surprise Cakes App before you actually

  • want to cut the cake because the kids will all want to have a turn playing with it and

  • looking around the ship. So if you are ready to eat you are going to be delayed there.

  • So just bring it out early.

  • Share this video with someone you know who needs a quick solution to an amazing cake,

  • You don't even have to bake you can buy a store bought cake and put the marker on top.

  • Surprise cakes app is available for itunes and google play.
