  • Welcome to How To Cook That I am Ann Reardon

  • You asked me to do a popin cookin video so I ordered these in from Japan, we don't have

  • have them here in Australia.

  • Lets start with this birthday cake kit, I've got three different kits for you. And the

  • first thing you will notice is all the instructions are in Japanese, is that why you wanted asked

  • me to do a how-to video?

  • When you open it up don't rip the packaging because you'll need it, open it up, take everything

  • out and cut along the dotted lines.

  • So you'll have your packaging, all the little packets that come inside, a cute piping bag

  • a stirring spoon and decorations that they gave you.

  • Cut along the lines on the plastic container so you get your triangle measuring cup and

  • the strawberry molds seperate from the rest of it.

  • Now we are ready to begin. You'll see that the tray has a star and a heart at the base

  • so you know which one to do in which. In the star one pour the orange packet and into the

  • heart one tip the yellow packet. Add two scoops of water to the big one and

  • one scoop of water to the small one and stir them both really well getting into all of

  • those little edges. And then tap it on the bench 10 times to get rid of any air bubbles

  • and then just pop it in the microwave for 50 seconds.

  • Once it is done use your spoon to loosen it from the edges and then tip it onto the plastic

  • sheet. For the strawberry cream add the red packet

  • to the heart space and mix in one scoop of water.

  • To make the vanilla cream place the dark blue packet into the star container and mix with

  • two scoops of water. To make your strawberry jellies mix the pink

  • packet with one scoop of water and then tip that into the strawberry mold.

  • Cover the bottom cake in vanilla cream then add the small one on top and cover that too.

  • Place the strawberry cream into the piping bag and cut off one corner.

  • Pipe little dots all the way around the edge where the tow cakes are meeting. Then on the

  • top layer pipe some little lines of pink following the line of the cake.

  • Now you can of course decorate it however you want it. Then add the decorations that

  • they gave you and I'm just putting around the joins where it is coming up all around

  • the top of the cake. Add you strawberry jellies and pipe some more

  • pink. You can leave it on the plastic sheet that

  • they have given you or place it onto a plate. Now for the taste test.

  • HMMM, it's not bad, but it's not great either. It's like dry cake with a spoonful of packet

  • vanilla pudding with it. As a kid I probably would of enjoyed it I definitely would of

  • enjoyed the process, I think that it's cute, it just needs some work on the flavour.

  • Lets try the sushi one. This is s sushi candy so it should have a different flavour none

  • of the vanilla cream mixture in this one.

  • Your packet has the plates and a couple of templates on it, then you have a spoon, a

  • dropper bottle and all of your little packets of ingredients.

  • First to make the rice, use the dropper bottle fill the oval container up to the fill line.

  • Then add the blue packet in and mix well. To the whirly shaped pattern add water to

  • the fill line again then add the yellow powder and mix through this is going to be our egg.

  • Smooth off the top there. Repeat that on the wavy one with the pink

  • packet to make the tuna. Tip it in, stir it through and smooth off the top.

  • And then to make the fake seaweed they have given us black gooey soft candy. Just squash

  • that and pull it out to the size that you need on the template wrapper there and use

  • a knife to trim it up. Now keep the left over bits and we'll use them later on other ones.

  • Take some of your rice, roll it into a ball and wrap the seaweed around it. Squeeze it

  • together on the side to make it stick to itself.

  • Take another ball of rice, place half of the egg on top just use your spoon to get it out.

  • Then wrap the spare seaweed candy around, it doesn't taste of seaweed, wrap that around

  • your sushi there.

  • Roll another ball of rice and place some tuna on top.

  • Now for some cool molecular gastronomy. Add water to the fill line of A and of B.

  • Tip the orange packet into B and the green packet into A. Mix up A well, then wipe you

  • spoon clean . It is important that you don't mix these mixtures together. And then mix

  • B.

  • Using the dropper bottle put drops of the orange mix into the clear one and it will

  • set straight away. Basically what is happening here is the orange has a gelling agent that

  • gels in the presence of calcium. And the clear mixture has calcium salts in it so when you

  • drop it in it gels. Scoop them up and place them on top of your

  • sushi so it looks like fish eggs. Lastly mix the brown packet with water to

  • make soy sauce.

  • The sushi wrapper tastes like bubble gum, the rice is chewy and sweet. The salmon and

  • egg have a jelly like consistency. Overall it is sweet with a slight bubble gum flavour

  • to it.

  • But lets try the ice cream one. Open your box, cut out your packet into pieces.

  • Then we have a strawberry cream packet, sprinkles, vanilla cream a mini piping bag a spoon and

  • look at these cute little ice cream cones, a dessert cup and some wafers.

  • Cut the triangle off the corner and that will be your measuring scoop just like we did last

  • time.

  • Use your scoop to cut a square off your wafer, then a second square, and a third one and

  • you'll be left with a little piece that we'll use later.

  • Pour the strawberry cream powder, which is the pink packet into one side and the vanilla

  • cream powder which is the blue packet, into the other side.

  • Add one scoop of water into each one and mix well.

  • Add the pink to one side of the bag and the vanilla to the other, it's a bit tricky to

  • get it all the way down to the tip of the bag.

  • Twist the top and trim off the end.

  • Pipe four dots onto one of your wafers,

  • repeat that on the next one. Then on the last one pipe three rows of three dots so the top

  • is completely covered. Then stack those up and add some sprinkles

  • to the top.

  • For the ice cream cones you just swirl the mixture into the cone, add your little wafer

  • bit to the side. You can use the holes in the centre of the container that they have

  • given you as a stand to hold your ice creams as you do the next bit.

  • Then fill your wafer basket with the left over mixture and sprinkles on the top. Pipe

  • some more around the edge and add the heart sprinkles to that as well.

  • You can use the wrappers they provided around the ice cream and as plates for your creations.

  • These look so super cute and taste like wafer with the same vanilla pudding mix we had on

  • the cake.

  • Kids didn't love it but they thought it was OK.

  • I think all of these are great fun to make and look super-cute I'm just not loving the

  • flavours. But I would of loved to make them when I was little. What do you think have

  • you had them before? And would you like me to make some recipes for mini things that

  • you can do yourself instead of having to use a packet? Let me know in the comments below.

  • Have a great week and I'll see you on Friday. [music: the boat song by Set Sail used with
