Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles Welcome to HOW TO COOK THAT I'm Ann Reardon for all of you directioners out there today we are going to make a one direction cake which has the logo on the top as well as on the inside of the cake and to make this you are going to need two vanilla packet cakes and one red velvet cake and I'd usually make these from scratch but today I've got a little helper so we are using packets You are also going to need some red fondant which I suggest you buy pre-coloured. and you'll need some cream cheese frosting and some italian meringue frosting. I'll place a link to those recipe videos in the description below this one. If you don't have a rectangular cake tin you can make a rectangular frame out of cardboard, it does not need to have a base , just the sides. Secure in place with staples and string and make sure use plain thick cardboard, don't use ones that have shiny printing on them because they have got a plastic coating. and then put that on a baking tray, line it with baking paper so that there is no gaps underneath and then you can bake it in that. The cake tin that I used was 16cm by 24cm. for both of the cakes so the vanilla cake is just a bit thicker because I used two cake mixes for that one. For your red velvet cake you need to cut it into two layers, don't flatten it first because we want the top layer to be rounded. Then trim of your sides, cutting of about a cm off each so that you are left with a neat rectangle and cut it in half lengthwise. One of these won't be needed so you can set that aside for later. take one of the rectangles, place it in the middle of the domed piece and cut down each side and that's what we are going to use to form the D Move the other pieces out of the way and trim down the sides of the cake. so that from the end it looks like the diagram shown Then take one of your rectangles and cut it into two even layers so they will be quite thin. with the vanilla cake trim the thin layer of brown off the top, then trim the edges and cut it into two layers like you did with the red velvet cake. Place one of your red velvet strips on top and leave about a 2cm border of cake wither side of it and cut down through both layers of cake so you end up with two fat and two skinny rectangles take one of the fat rectangles and cut it into two layers. Use one of those thin layers and cover it with a small amount of cream cheese frosting all the way to the edges. Cut one of the skinny rectangles into two layers and place it down the middle. Then take one of the left over pieces of red velvet cake and cut two thin strips that you can place either side of that vanilla cake that you've just put down the middle If any of it breaks off just add a bit more at the end. Add more frosting to the centre section only and then put one of the thin red cake layers on top and use enough to push the edges into place. Then cut another red strip from the piece that you were using before and place that on the top of the cake. so that will form the bottom of your one Put frosting along the exposed strip as shown. and add another thin layer of vanilla cake and frost over the top Fill in you sides with frosting and that's your number one finished. Add your wide thin piece of vanilla and that's your space between the 1 and the D and cover with a thin layer of frosting Now you are going to place the other thin layer of red across the middle. More frosting. Now take your other skinny strip of vanilla cake and cut the corners off as shown in the diagram Put that in the middle of the cake and yes, add more frosting. Then take your D piece of red velvet cake that we cut in the beginning turn it so it is the rounded side down on the bench and cut out a triangular wedge from the middle. Flip it over and put it on top of your cake. Now take your remaining thick piece of vanilla cake and cut out a thin rounded wedge from the middle add more frosting and then put that on top place in more frosting in the gaps on the side Clean up the work area and then carefully transfer the cake to a platter. Holding it by both the sides because you need to tip it over onto the platter. Neaten up[ the ends by trimming of a really thin piece. And now you can either cover the whole cake in white fondant or you can use italian meringue frosting like I am I like the taste of this frosting and it gives you that brilliant white look. Just add spoons onto the cake and then smooth out the surface using a pallet knife or you can use the back of a long knife. use some wet paper towel to clean up the platter Then roll out some red fondant onto some non-stick baking paper You are going to need to print out the one direction logo on the computer in a size that will fit you cake and use that as a template to cut your letters out of the red fondant. Remove the excess fondant and then use the knife to roughen it up a bit so it looks more like the logo. Using you knife slide it underneath and lift up your letters onto to the cake And then make any adjustments you need to get it exactly into the right place. Then I used a small amount of the marshmallow icing on a knife and just kind of brushed it onto the letters so that you get the look of the logo. put your top red strip into place and you have finished! Then when you slice into your cake everybody gets the lego on the slice that they get.
