You will Dodger: need a cake, already made, already done with that part Ro: All ready! Dodger: Some lollipop sticks, and some wax paper Ro: Yes, you shall also need Ro: big marshmallows, not the little marshmallows, green chocolate, which we will Ro: melt, and red chocolate, which we will also melt And these! Dodger: What are those? Ro: I don’t know what these are, I found them in the Ro: flower section, but it’s basically just foam 2 Foam to stick Ro: the cake pops in

Dodger: Foam Ro: And, fancy frosting squirt bags Dodger: I’m really excited about the frosting squirt bags Ro: I think the… Dodger: I think the squirt bags are gonna be the best part of this Ro: And a little bit of black food coloring dye

For their little eyeballs Ro: Let’s get crackin Dodger: Let’s do it Ro: We are cutting the cake, pre-made cake Dodger: Are we doing it in fourths? Ro: In half, oh yeah, let’s do that, do it in 4

Dodger: OK Ro: Into pieces because what you’re gonna do with the cake is you’re gonna make Ro: cake crumbles in our big mixing bowl Rub those 2 together, it rubs the Ro: 2 together in the bowl! Dodger: Like this? Uh-haha it put’s the lotion Dodger: on it’s skin OK Ro: Yeah, so you just, ber-ber-ber-ber-ber Ro: Making zeh crumbs

Dodger: Oh I see, well, this is… Well, pfffft, yeah! Ro: And, you can also break em up with your fingers, if this isn’t Dodger: Look at this Ro: Perfect Dodger: Magic Ro: Welcome to baking

Dodger: This is going so well Ro: We’re making cake Ro: pops today! Dodger: Huge chunks going in Ro: Ta-da! When it is done it should look like that, a whole bowl of crumbles Dodger: It feels really awesome when you put your hand in it too Ro: It’s like really soft

Add 1 can of frosting Dodger: OK, the whole thing?!? Ro: Yeah, ready? Dodger: Wow that’s really thick! Ro: OH! Oh! Dodger: OH! Dodger: Oh it’s all going wrong Are we? OK, do we just like mix Dodger: it in with your hands? Ro: Mmmhmmm Dodger: I’m on it Oh it’s getting Dodger: like, super… It’s like dough the more that you put in

Ro: Yeah Dodger: The more that you put in it, like firms up a lot Ro: Yeah knead it like Ro: dough And the ratio that I use is just one cake, one cake mix, with one frosting Ro: Take a gander

Dodger: Behold Ro: It should get really mushy like that Dodger: Really sticky Ro: And basically what we’re gonna do next, is instead of Ro: making like little meatballs, we’re gonna make little cake balls Ro: So if you’re Italiano

Dodger: Oh my, this will be easy Ro: You know Ro: how to… Dodger: Easy mode Ro: Yeah, know how to roll a meat-a-ball! Dodger: Alright, let’s do it Ro: Same difference, let’s do this Ro: So we’ve got the tray lined with wax paper, we’re gonna roll these little Ro: cake balls and then put them in the freezer for about 15 minutes

Dodger: 15 minutes? Ro: Yeah, let’s get this goin Dodger: OK, how big should Dodger: they be? Like… Ro: Kinda smaller, because if they’re too heavy Ro: they’ll fall down the cake pole The cake… Dodger: I feel like my hands are Dodger: not going to be good at this right now Ro: Just gonna stick him on the tray Dodger: What does wax paper do? Why use Dodger: wax paper? Ro: It’s so they won’t stick to this surface, apparently Ro: nothing sticks to wax paper

Dodger: What? Ro: They use it to separate like Ro: everything in baking Ro: Now, we are done with our cake pop meatballs, and we’re gonna put them in Ro: the freezer for about 15 minutes Ro: While those are in the freezer, we’re gonna heat these up in the microwave for Ro: 30 seconds, our colored chocolates Dodger: Ah we’re holding our colors Ro: Oh, cause we’re so like that! Dodger: Magical… Ro: Yeah, so organized

Dodger: Yeah Ro: Yeah, and we’re gonna be super efficient because while these Ro: are in the microwave, you’re gonna take your big, jumbo marshmallows, and Ro: we’re gonna chop these in half Dodger: Doin 3 things at once Ro: Yeah, efficiency Dodger: What? Efficiency! Ro: Efficiency

Pff-pfff-pff! Ro: These, are really, really hot so be careful They came out of the microwave, Ro: They’re all nice and melted So what you do is, you, um, take one of the Ro: half cut little marshmallows And you stick him like halfway down the stick Dodger: Halfway down? Ro: Yeah, so he won’t get

Dodger: Like here? Ro: Yeah, so he won’t get any dye on him And then you dip him in the frosting, Ro: the tip, get a little on there, it’s kind of like glue Dodger: Like that? Ro: And then take a little cake ball and stick it in the bottom Dodger: OK, ooh, these are cold Ro: But don’t put him in all the way, cause, Dodger: Because it will fall through? Ro: Because it will fall through

Dodger: OK, so then do I push this back up? Ro: A little bit You want to Ro: pull him down Dodger: Oh so down a little bit? Ro: So he won’t get the Ro: red on him Dodger: OK Ro: Just kidding

Ro: OK I’m excited, I’m excited OK, um straight down, don’t swirl it Dodger: No swirling? Ro: Just straight down and back up Dodger: Ah, ah, oh no! Ro: Oh no! Both: OH! Ro: First one, perfect! Ro: Sometimes they do that, the hardest thing about cake pops is, when you Ro: pull it down, sometimes the chocolate wants to suck it off So you… Ro: It’s a tricky thing

OK, so dip this tip Dodger: OK Ro: Got a lot Ro: of frosting on there Then stick him in there We’re gonna dip him straight down

Ro: And I go really, really slow Dodger: Oh you, like, submerge it all the way Ro: And then just hope it doesn’t fall off Dodger: Oh, oh Ro: Seriously

Dodger: Oh dang, look at that Ro: That is luck! Dodger: Submerging I think Dodger: helps it a lot Ro: I just twirl it a little bit so that the excess… Dodger: So it evens out Ro: Can fall off Ro: I saw this on, I think it’s Ro: Cake Bella, she is the creator of cake pops, she taps it a little bit

Ro: And then we’re gonna stick it over here, in the foam, while it’s drying Dodger: OK Ro: And then we’ll push up, oh I think it can go, I’m not sure Ro: Yeah, I think it’s OK Ro: Oh no! Here we go, here we go

Oh I’m… I’m just gonna keep doing this Ro: until it drips because last… Dodger: Just keep on, when you turn it, it’s Dodger: the turning! Ro: No, nooooo!!! Dodger: I’m really depressed Ro: 1, 2 up Dodger: Boom! AH! Ro: 1, 2 up, 1, 2 up It’s up, it’s up Dodger: It looks great, it looks great, it looks great, I don’t want to jinx it

Dodger: I don’t want to jinx it but it looks fantastic Ro: I’m gonna hold it right there, it ain’t going nowhere! Ro: Out of 100, we made 1… Hahahaha! Dodger: I think this one is my favorite It literally is like raaaaaaah! It’s terrible Ro: Dodge is up, we’re gonna do this Dodger: I’m putting so much, Dodger: so much frosting on this time

Ro: Straight down Dodger: Straight down Ro: Down and gentile, up,up, up and twist! Ro: Haaaaah! Dodger: I didn’t go quite… ungghhh deep enough Ro: I like it Dodger: This one kind of looks like he has an elvis hair-do

Ro: Yeah, he has hair-do! Dodger: He’s like, oh hey, got my hair did Ro: He’s got some cake in his hair Dodger: At the mushroom kingdom salon, oh Dodger: yeah he does Ro: Yeah he does Dodger: Shhh, what cake? Dodger: So, we learned stuff… We learned that, um, the cake pop, like the actual Dodger: breading needs to be really cold

Ro: Really frozen! Dodger: Yeah, Dodger: like, if you let it thaw at all, the stick goes right through it Ro: They fall, so the first ones that we did, we didn’t have any issues with them Ro: falling down, but then over here, they started to get warmer from the freezer Ro: And then we put them back in the freezer, so… Freeze, freeze Dodger: Freeze Ro: Do these when they are very cold

Dodger: Cake pops… Freeze Ro: Later on they started to actually look like little mushrooms Dodger: Yeah, and Dodger: we learned, we learned the, uh, the commit technique Ro: Yeah Dodger: You dip and then you pff

Ro: Yeah, dip and then commit Dodger: Yeah, Dodger: you commit, you can’t just, like, gradually let it drip while you… No, Dodger: it’ll fall Ro: They fall all over the place Ro: So now we’re gonna let these dry, and we’re gonna decorate the pretty ones Ro: And the fuglies

Ro: Ta-da Dodger: Ta-da Ro: These are our fancy mushroom cake pops that we made Dodger: Don’t they look great? Ro: I kind of like this guy, but I also like the REALLY angry guy I don’t know if Ro: you guys can see him in the back but he’s just like, so angry that he’s so fail

Ro: I like the one that just says WHY? This little guy, look at him WHY?!?! Dodger: So thanks for watching… No but, Ro: Thanks for watching Dodger: we actually do have, like, ones that Ro: Yeah, just kidding! Ro: So these were the mess-up ones, and the ones that actually kind of turned out, Ro: that actually look kind of cute Dodger: Yay! Ro: Fa-da! Dodger: Wee! Dodger: So some of them did good
