Hey guys, it's Ro, welcome to another Nerdy Nummies Today I wanted to make something with the ball pan from my baking line

We have made a whole bunch of treats using this pan before, you may remember We have made an Earth cake There's a picture of that right here on the box We also made a death star cake So today, I thought what would be a fun cute themed treat to make with this pan? And some of you may have already guessed

Today, we're going to make a cake inspired by Pokemon – a Poke-Ball cake If you're interested in using the pan that I'm using, I'll put a link down below Let's get started! The recipe that we're making today is a super easy mode white cake recipe The things you'll need will be cake flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, vegetable oil, milk, some eggs, baking powder, salt, almond extract, and vanilla extract Now, let's put it all together! The first step to making our cake is measuring out our dry ingredients And pouring them into a large mixing bowl

Start with your sugar We'll need 2 cups Now add two cups plus two tablespoons of flour One cup of cake flour For our baking powder, 2 and 1/2 teaspoons

Lastly, add one and a quarter teaspoon of salt Whisk together till everything's well combined and set off to the side Now, we are going to measure out and pour all of our wet ingredients into a large bowl, starting with vegetable oil Measure 3/4 cup Now measure in 2 and a half cups of milk and three egg whites

Lastly, add one teaspoon of almond extract and one and a half teaspoons of vanilla extract Mix all of the wet ingredients together 'till it's well incorporated Now pour all of the wet ingredients into the dry and mix together You don't need an electric hand mixer It's not electric! *singing* Now our batter is ready, our pans are greased

You can use butter or spray them with a little baking spray, and if you haven't used this pan before, we bake them with these little silicone rings right underneath They stabilize them so that isn't like this in the oven – WOAH! I also like to place them on a baking sheet lined with a piece of parchment paper Evenly divide your batter between the two pans, almost all the way to the top Now, it's time to bake Heat your oven to 325 degrees We are going to slow bake these cakes for 1 hour and 30 minutes

About halfway through baking, rotate your pans so that your cakes will evenly bake Once your cakes have baked, give them plenty of time to cool I've already leveled the tops of my cake, and using a small serrated knife I'm going to cut off the top of one of the cakes This creates a flat surface for the cake to sit on Now pipe a thick layer of buttercream on top of the cake Then, smooth it out flat using a small offset spatula Grab the top of the cake and place on the top and gently press down to seal the two cakes together

Fill in some extra icing around the side Then using a small offset spatula, Smooth out the frosting Now, time to frost I'm using buttercream icing in a piping bag with a number 1A tip at the end If you're using my tip line, that's the teal colored one

Frost white buttercream starting at the bottom, working our way up to the middle Try to leave a gap in the center Then, we'll switch to red buttercream Place your spatula down and gently spin around, making your cake look really smooth and even The white and red icing is smoothed out We've also left a space all the way around the middle for the black buttercream frosting Pipe a smooth line all the way around the middle of the ball cake

Once the cake is frosted, pop it in the fridge to chill while we make our fondant decoration The decoration is super simple We're making the Poke-Ball button which is white and black You'll need three circle cookie cutters Each one is a little smaller than the next

Sprinkle a little powdered sugar down Make it rain, make it rain! Roll out your black fondant Using your largest circle cutter, cut out a piece Now, roll out your white fondant using your medium and small circle cutter Cut out one of each

Now, using water and a small paintbrush, paint the backside of the medium piece Place it in the center Oh, I love this It's creating a little depth, little texture We've got a real Poke-Ball button

Paint the smaller piece, and attach again right in the middle Let this dry for a few minutes before you place it onto the cake Taa-daaaaaaa! Here is the Poké-Ball themed cake that we made today using the round sphere pan from my baking line This cake recipe was made specifically for the ball pan because it's the perfect amount of batter I'll be posting the recipe and a bunch of pictures on RosannaPansino
