Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! Recently, I have been playing one of my favorite childhood video games, Lego Island! The main character is Pepper Roni! First name Pepper, last name Roni! Wah! Wah-wah-wah-wah-wah! I thought it would be fun to make a cake that looks like the pizza from the game, so today we are going to be making a Pizza Cake! Let’s get started! The things you will need, will be: A round, yellow cake, I’m using a 10 inch cake pan, but you can use whatever size you like This is about the size of a medium pizza
You’ll also need some yellow buttercream frosting, and red buttercream frosting And then to decorate your pizza, we’re gonna be using white chocolate, with 1 of these little vegetable peelers, you know the peelers that you peel carrots or potatoes with Then we have some apple sour punch bites, some soft black licorice chews, a number 10 decorating tip, a small circle cookie cutter, some red fruit strips, these ones are flavored strawberry, and some Milk Duds, now let’s put it all together! The first thing that we’re gonna do is level our cake, make sure your cake has had plenty of time to cool once you take it out of the oven, and then get your cake leveler And I like to hold the back of the cake so it won’t go anywhere, and then you just go back and forth! Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo! And then you’re gonna take off the top of your cake, oooh the best part! The muffin top! It’s going away, dang it! You’re gonna take your yellow buttercream frosting, snip the tip, and then I like to frost the top of the cake first Bew-bew-bew-bew! Then you’re gonna take your spatula and evenly spread it around the cake
I’m also gonna add a little bit of extra frosting around the top, of the cake, and smooth it out to look like crust Just frosted our cake and now we’re gonna take our red buttercream frosting, and spread it in the middle of our cake to look like marinara sauce Now we are gonna put our cake in the freezer to chill for about 10 minutes, and while it is chilling, we are gonna prepare our candy pizza toppings! The first candy topping that we’re gonna make are gonna be olives, these are my favorite, and we’re gonna be making them out of the soft black licorice candies So you’re just gonna take 1 of these and a sharp cutting knife, on a cutting board, and cut little pieces like this, then take your number 10 decorating tip, and cut out the middle And look at that! Looks just like a sliced olive! Now that we have a bunch of olives, now we are gonna be making our cheese! This is my favorite! Oh my gosh, I love mozzarella cheese! So, we’re gonna be taking our white chocolate, just open it up, and now I’m just taking a little piece of tin to hold my chocolate because if your fingers are warm, chocolate will melt to them
Now you’re just gonna take your vegetable peeler, and I’m just going to peel, peel peel! Look at that! Now we got a bunch of cheese, and the last topping that we are gonna be prepping is our pepperoni, so you’re gonna take your red fruit strip, then take your small round circle cookie cutter and cut out some circles And then just do this to the rest of your fruit strips Time to build a pizza, we’ve got our pizza cake and all of our toppings ready, the first thing that we’re gonna do is put on a little bit of chocolate cheese! Oh my gosh! It looks just like a pizza, this is just tripping me out! I make it rain, I make it rain, I make it rain! Now we’re gonna add our pepperoni! I really like pepperoni, so I’m gonna put a bunch of ‘em on here Then I’m gonna put on our little sour gummies, kind of look like green peppers! Now milk duds, which kind of look like the little sausage
And last, but certainly not least, we’ve got our olives! These are one of my favorites! Olive you! Stick a bunch of these on here! Da-da! Here is the pizza cake that we made today inspired by Lego Island, I loved playing that game when I was a kid, and still today! This cake is such a cool idea! It’s really good for a pizza party, or a birthday party! I’ll be posting lots of pictures on Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram and Twitter And if you guys make this cake, please take a photo and send it to me, I love to re-blog them and re-post them, I just love seeing your baking creations It just makes my day!
