Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! Today, I got so many requests to do something Grumpy Cat related, so today I’m gonna be teaching you how to make a Grumpy Cat Cake! I’m pretty excited about it, me-ow! Alright, so let’s get started! The things you will need to make this cake, will be: 2 chocolate cakes, you can use whatever recipe that you like, just your favorite chocolate cake I’ve already got mine pre-made, over here
The size of these cakes are 6 inch pans by 2 inch, little rounds About as big as my head! You’ll also need 2 triangle sugar cookies, because those are gonna be kitty ears! Meow! But he’s grumpy, so he’s like meh-ow I don’t care about it! You’re gonna need black decorative icing, I like the Wilton brand Chocolate royal icing and tan royal icing Then you’re gonna need 4 different colors of Fondant, we’ve got chocolate fondant, and then we’ve got a little bit of pink fondant, white and light blue Alright, let’s put it all together! So the 1st thing that you’re gonna do is take 1 of your cakes and put him on a little cake tray, and then I’m putting it on top of this spinner, just to make it easier to frost, but you don’t need 1 of these
Now you’re gonna take your tan royal icing, this thing is so heavy, oh my gosh! And you’re just gonna put frosting right on top of your cake Then take your spatula and smooth it out Now that you’ve got this frosted you’re gonna put on your 2nd cake And what I like to do is flip your cake upside down so that the smooth side is on the top! Doin’ good! 2 Thumbs up and a foot! Once you’ve stacked your cake, you’re gonna take your tan frosting And at the end of the platic bag I’ve attached a large grass tip, and it looks like that
When it comes out it kind of looks like spaghetti, or if you pull up quickly it looks like tall grass or kitty fur! Purrrrrrrrr! So that’s what we’re gonna do, we’re gonna make kitty fur all around our cake I’m gonna start at the top so you can see what it looks like You just push down and pull up! And look at that, little kitty fur! Now that you’ve frosted your cake in cat fur, you’re gonna decorate the ears, I’m taking the chocolate frosting, again with a large grass tip, to look fuzzy, like a little fuzz ball! We’re gonna frost the ears first, so that the frosting will dry standing up, and your kitty ears will look really fuzzy! Now you’re gonna take your triangle ears, and we’re gonna stick them right on top of the little kitty cake Once you’ve got your kitty ears in the cake, you’re gonna take your chocolate frosting, and frost the sides of the ears, so that there’s fur everywhere! Once you’ve got your kitty ears frosted, now we’re gonna make Grumpy Cat’s face out of fondant So we’ve got our fondant colors out here, and I’ve just laid down a piece of wax paper so that it doesn’t stick to the surface
If your fondant gets too sticky, just take a little bit of powdered sugar, confectioners sugar, and sprinkle it down Like you would flour if you were making sugar cookies OK, so first thing that I’m gonna do, is just take a little bit of brown fondant, and I’m gonna shape it to look like Grumpy Cat’s face Just eyeball it, you can print out a picture of Grumpy Cat’s face, whatever you want to do The side of his face kind of looks like a teardrop, a little narrow at the top and then comes down bigger at the bottom, like that
Then we’re gonna do the same thing with the other side Now, just put the white in the middle, press down Fill it in, just massage it till the lines become seamless And then for his eyes, you’re gonna take the light blue, and you can use a circle cookie cutter, I’m just using a teardrop one, just because it’s a rounded edge Then you’re gonna cut 2 eyeballs, and then you’re gonna cut it flat across the top
Then you’re gonna take the pink fondant and make his little nose! Boop! Now that we’ve got the base of little Grumpy Cat’s face, and now we’re gonna take some frosting and stick it on the front of our cake Hrrrrrrrr! That kinda sounded like a dog? Brrrr! Last but not least, we’re gonna take our black decorative icing, and we’re gonna draw Grumpy Cat’s eyeballs and his grumpy face Ta-da! Here is our Grumpy Cat Cake!
