Mark: Thank you Ro: You play games! Mark: Yes Ro: Do funny skits Mark: Yes Ro: You got a cute dog

Mark: Uh-huh Ro: And you do rock climbing Mark: Occasionally Ro: I’ve seen your pictures and they’re pretty awesome Mark: Rock climbing, weight lifting, hot yoga, ballet, I play trumpet professionally, Mark: I’m an excellent singer, I’m extremely handsome, I have many skills, Mark: everyone says I’m cool when they meet me

Mark: I’ve forgotten a lot of great things about me, write it down in the comments below Ro: New years is coming up, I’ve had so many good memories on YouTube and Ro: to celebrate, YouTube gives creator awards, they give play buttons in different Ro: colors, there’s silver, gold and diamond Ro: Mark was the perfect guest because he actually has a Diamond Play Button Mark: I carry it with me at all times Ro: Mmmhmmm

Mark: I sleep with it next to my bed Mark: I have a presenter here, his name is not Mark: important, don’t worry about that Ro: Huh! Mark: I am the only YouTuber in the world that has a Diamond Play Button, Mark: I brought it out of the Natural History Museum just for today’s Mark: occasion so that we can commemorate these incredible cupcakes Ro: It’s so shiny! I’m so excited… Mark: Don’t, don’t touch it Ro: Can I just hover pet it? Mark: No

Ro: Oh… Mark: Just look at it Ro: Just look at it Mark: Ah, don’t even look at it Ro: Don’t look at it

Mark: I think that might tarnish it in some way Ro: OK we won’t even look at it! Background: Punch in on it, OK Mark: NO! No don’t! NO! Ro: So to celebrate milestones and good memories, we are gonna be making Ro: YouTube Play Button Cupcakes Both: Let’s get started! Ro: Before we start baking, Mark, I got you something Mark: Cool, is it a Diamond Play Button? Ro: No I don’t have one of those… Mark: Hah-hah-hah-hah-hah-hah! Ro: Last time we baked you got a little messy and Mark you may be a messier Ro: baker than me

Mark: Uh-huh Ro: Which is actually really hard to achieve Ro: Alright, here you go Mark: Oh thanks! Ro: That… Well that was my size But I can, I can wear… Mark: Oh my heads too big! Mark: There you go

Ro: There we go! Mark: Did I mess up my hair? Ro: YouTube gave me these! Mark: YouTube doesn’t give me anything, oh wait! Ro: Oh wait! Mark: Except a Diamond Play Button! Ro: The recipe that we’re gonna be making today is a champagne cupcake and a Ro: champagne frosting recipe Ro: And if you would like to make a non-spirited version of this, instead of Ro: using champagne you can use sparkling cider Ro: The things you will need to make the cupcakes will be: 3 cups of all purpose flour, Ro: 2 cups of sugar, 3/4 cup of butter, 6 eggs, we’re only gonna be using the whites Ro: 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 3/4 teaspoon of baking soda, Ro: 3/4 teaspoon of salt, 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking powder Ro: And, of course, champagne

Ro: Mark’s gonna tell you what you need for the frosting Mark: Oh, wait, I can guess Mark: Don’t… Mark: 4 cups of cocaine… Ro: Powdered sugar… Mark: Oh… Mark: 4 cups of powdered sugar, 12 tablespoons of butter… Mark: No, OK, never mind then

Mark: 3 sticks of butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, a pinch of salt Mark: And, and of course even more champagne Both: Now let’s put it all together! Ro: Dee-dee-dee, dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee! Mark: I don’t remember this part… Mark: I can’t stop! Mark: I wanna stop! Ro: Do you dance for new years? Mark: I, I don’t celebrate new years Ro: What!? Mark: When I was a kid we celebrated new years by letting me out Mark: of the dungeon cage for a few hours of sunlight before I had to go back Mark: I was just hoping and praying that the next year I’d be allowed into the Mark: upstairs cage which actually has a window, but… That never happened…

Ro: That didn’t happen? Ro: Let’s get started! Mark: Yeah let’s get started… Ro: The first thing that we’re gonna do to make our cupcakes is in a medium Ro: bowl, we’re gonna whisk together our flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt Ro: Mark did a great job whisking last time… Mark: Yeah Ro: So I’m gonna ask you to do that again Mark: Yeah! Mark: Start now? Ro: Start whisking Ro: Yeah, start, start! Mark: There’s nothing in here, why am I starting now? Ro: Baking Powder… It just helps it

Ro: And salt! Ro: Perfect! Ro: Mark that’s good! Looks good! Mark: Now that I did that completely perfectly with no flaws, what do we do next? Ro: Next we are gonna cream together our butter and sugar, so in a large mixing Ro: bowl I’m just gonna pour in our sugar and butter Ro: And we’re just gonna mix Ro: it together until it’s well combined Ro: You’ve got an electric hand mixer over there Mark: I don’t like it! Ro: There you go, there you go! Mark: It’s stuck! Ro: OK… Mark: This doesn’t work at all! Mark: This is what they used to do in the old days, the rustic countryside

Ro: They did that? Mark: Yeah, it’s all the same! Mark: I hope you got a lot of SD cards for those cameras over there, Mark: because this is gonna be awhile Mark: This is how they used to do it in the REALLY old days! Mark: You think they had metal back in their caves when they were making YouTube Cupcakes!? Ro: They probably just used sticks and feet and stuff! Ro: It is starting to look well combined you guys… Mark: I did it! Ro: Look at this! Mark: I beat the machine! Mark: I did it! Ro: I’m like really impressed! Mark: I did it! Mark: This is what your mixture should look like, and in fact, the machine was Mark: so intimidated by my ability at being awesome, that it broke in half! Ro: We gave Mark our strongest whisk… Mark: I’m gonna break it! Ro: I don’t know what it’s made out of, some type of strong metal Mark: Stainless steel? Pfft! Mark: OK… What? Are we doing? Mark: This… I don’t know what comes next! Ro: We are gonna be adding our eggs to our butter mixture, I’m gonna be adding Ro: them 2 at a time, and just a reminder, it’s just gonna be the egg whites Ro: Do you know how to crack an egg? Mark: Pfft! Ro: Here, I’m gonna have you do it over this bowl Mark… Mark: Buh, what!? I’m… Ro: Because I’m not so sure about it, so… Mark: You’re gonna be shocked and amazed! Ro: OK, let me see those egg cracking skills Ro: OK… Ro: Oh, he’s using the jiggle technique! Ro: I underestimated you

Mark: Thanks! Ro: I’m gonna let you do another one Mark: Really? Ro: Yeah, you do it Mark: Wow, this is a mistake Ro: And then mix together Mark: For this particular mix I’m gonna channel cavemen of yore

Mark: Who both needed food and fire, so they had a very effective technique… Ro: I’ll turn the bowl Mark: Thank you Ro: You do that, you do that Ro: Go Mark go! Ro: Go mark go! Mark: I’m going! Ro: This looks great, keep going! Keep going! Mark: This is literally as go as I can go! Mark: Put in special effects fire! Mark: It’ll look good! Mark: Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Ro: Mark’s mixing together on a low speed while add the final eggs Mark: We put the Mark on a low setting

Ro: My hand mixer has 5 speeds, Mark has 10! Mark: No I only have 2, low and then, geez Mark stop! Mark: For the love of God stop! Ro: Ready for the second Mark speed? Mark: Absolutely! Ro: Ding! Ro: Oh-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho! Ro: Just mix like this! Mark: Ugh! Mark: OK, that was easy, what’s next? Ro: We’re gonna add our vanilla and mix together until well combined Mark: I'm gonna do this real gentle Ro: If you’re using a hand mixer, mix on a low speed… Ro: If you’ve got a Markiplier, put it on speed 1 Mark: You can buy your own Markiplier today for only 59 payments of $6969

Ro: Now we’re gonna pop open our bubbly, we need 2 cups of champagne for this recipe, Ro: but we’ll need some more for our frosting and I may need a little glass to drink, so Ro: Are you ready? Mark: You first Ro: Cheers! Ro: OK, I’m really bad at this, but I love it, it’s so much fun! Ro: And give it a thumb… Ro: Pop… Ro: AHHHH! Ro: Oh no! Oh no, Mark! Mark: You saw my mixing ability before

Ro: Oh no! Mark: Just wait till you see it… Mark: In 3D! Ro: OK… Oh, oh, um… Ro: Don’t AHHHHH! Mark: Yay! Ro: Don’t AHHHHHHHHH! Mark: Can the mike pick up my heartbeat? Mark: Now that we’re not dead… Mark: What do we do next? Ro: We are gonna be combining our dry and champagne ingredients into our large mixing bowl, Ro: 3 parts dry, 2 parts champagne What that means is, add the dry, mix it up Ro: Add champagne, mix it up Ro: Add dry, mix it up

Ro: Add champagne, mix it up Ro: And dry, mix it up Ro: This is making my day! Ro: Now we are gonna scoop our batter into our cupcake tray Ro: Over here we have got a Ro: cupcake tray, lined with a bunch of paper cupcake liners Ro: We’re gonna scoop a heaping to fill the tray about 2/3 full

Ro: This recipe makes about 3 dozen cupcakes Mark: I, I don’t have a lot of friends, so kinda like 4 is good for me Mark: 3 for me and 1 for Chica Ro: That’s really sweet of you! Mark: What about the part where I don’t have any friends? Ro: Oh sorry Mark, if you want to come over for new years… Mark: I’d rather be alone in my cage! Mark: Just leave me to my life! Ro: OK, OK! Ro: It’s a sensitive subject Ro: Because it’s fun, we do board game nights

Ro: And, we play Harry Potter Clue Ro: And we play Monopoly Mark: Sounds terrible, I don’t want any part of that… Mark: The cupcakes are ready, you put them in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes! Ro: That’s right! Mark: Areghhhh, or was it 22!? Mark: I don’t remember! Ro: It’s 20, and while they’re baking, we’re gonna be making Ro: some delicious homemade frosting Ro: In our large bowl, we are gonna be mixing our powdered sugar and butter Ro: And we’re gonna cream together until it’s nice and smooth

Mark: It’s horrifying! I can… Ro: Mark! You don’t want to use an electric mixer? Mark: Alright fine… Ro: There we go! Mark: Oh! Ro: That’s it, perfect! Ro: And then spin the bowl Mark, spin the bowl, spin the bowl Mark: Oh that’s so convenient! I could have been doing this the whole time Mark: Who has to clean this up, is it me? Ro: It’s me Mark: Yay! Mark: Why didn’t you make me use this from the beginning? Mark: This was amazing! Ro: Well, because you’re so good at mixing

Ro: I just wanted to enjoy it a little bit Mark: You didn’t even give me the option last time Ro: Just a little bit Mark: No, you literally did not hand me an electric mixer last time Ro: You’ve got an electric hand mixer over there

Mark: I don’t like it… Ro: Now we’re gonna add our champagne, vanilla extract and salt to our mixture Ro: We’re just gonna be adding a 1/4 cup of champagne Ro: I’ll do the eyeballing Ro: Pour it in Mark: Yaaaayyyy! Mark: Alright is it done yet? Ro: …

Yeah Ro: Now we’re gonna set this off to the side Mark: Alright, so we set our frosting aside, and we have fondant, Mark: which I’m very familiar with Ro: Over here I’ve just got some white marshmallow fondant and I put down a piece Ro: of wax paper, so it won’t stick to our surface Ro: And a bunch of other tools, we are gonna be making little YouTube play buttons

Ro: Take this little roller, roll it out about 1/2 an inch thick Ro: Perfect! Mark: Oh, no imperfections here! Ro: Once you’ve got your fondant rolled out we are gonna cut out little squares Ro: Push it down, give it a little jiggle, pop ‘em out Mark: I get to do it too? Mark: Ah! Ro: Now we’re gonna pinch them into rectangle shapes Mark: Just like grandma used to do when she was making her Play Button Cupcakes! Mark: Everyone at home, bust our your Diamond Play button cupcakes and make sure Mark: they’re exactly, appropriately the right size

Both: Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm… Mark: And if you don’t have a play button at home… Mark: Huh, cry about it! Ro: Now we’re gonna roll some of our excess fondant thinner, about 1/4 inch Ro: Now we’re gonna take a little diamond cookie cutter and we’re just gonna Ro: cut a bunch of shapes and cut it in 1/2 so they look like little play buttons Mark: Do you trust me with a knife? Ro: What could go wrong!? Ro: To decorate the diamond ones we’re gonna be using a diamond luster dust, it shines Ro: rainbow And then some very small, teeny edible diamonds Ro: Then for our other 2 play buttons we have gold and silver leaf

Ro: Take a little fondant rectangle, a small painting brush, dip it into water Ro: Paint the top, it’s gonna kind of act as an adhesive Mark: OK my technique, is I’m just gonna kind of drop this in there, Mark: and then wrap it around, because I am the smartest! Mark: Get up on there! Ro: There you go! There you go! Mark: Get up on there… Uh-oh… Oh no! Mark: Ta-da! Ro: Mark, that’s great! Ro: Uh-oh, it’s windy! It’s windy! There we go! Ro: And then, smooth it down Mark: Yeah that’s a lot better than mine! Mark: OK, now that we got the basics done, we gotta do the play, clicky Mark: button thing… Ro: Just a dab Mark: Did somebody say dab? Mark: I did it, and I did it first, which means I’m the best! Mark: Put up a big logo! Ro: Mark wins! He finished first

Mark: Let me hold it Mark: What!? Ro: Mark you won! Mark: Ah, whatever that says is totally true! Mark: I don’t know what it is, but, I like that! Mark: That thing there, hmmm, me likey! Mark: It’s time for this bad boy, this big mama-jama! Mark: It’s mine, and I earned it! Ro: To decorate… Mark: Tyler, polish that! Mark: You come onto set with that glove off? Mark: AW! Mark: No, put the glove on! Mark: … Good! Ro: Looks really good Mark: Not yet it doesn’t Ro: No, it doesn’t yet! Mark: All the sides too! Ro: Sides…

Mark: You may leave! Ro: Thanks for helping! Mark: You forgot to say I love you before you leave! Tyler: I love you! Ro: To decorate our Diamond Play Buttons we’re gonna dip it in a little Ro: bit of water, paint the top of the fondant Ro: Then, with a dry little Ro: paint brush, dip it into our luster dust, and paint the top and sides Ro: Bling-bling-bling! Ro: Then to decorate our play button, we’re gonna attach these little edible Ro: diamonds, using a little bit of water Just remember they are made out Ro: of sugar, so you don’t want to use too much water Ro: Once you get all your diamonds on there, again, you’re just gonna take Ro: a little bit of luster dust, and sprinkle them over the top of the edible diamonds

Mark: Our cupcakes are done, and they’re cool! Ro: Yeah! Mark: That’s important for frosting! Ro: Mmmhmm Mark: Because if you do it hot they will just melt Ro: They’ll melt! Ro: Now we’re gonna assemble them Here I’ve piped our champagne frosting Ro: into a plastic baggie with a tip at the end for a little bit more control Ro: And then in front of me we’ve got sanding sugars, gold, white and silver

Ro: Take a cupcake, place the frosting bag in the middle and don’t move Ro: the bag, just like this Ro: Pressure, pressure, pressure, until it’s nice Ro: and tall… Nice! Mark: Nailed it! Ro: So just dip in any bowl you’d like, I like to go around the edges, and Ro: the top Final decoration step, we are gonna place our fondant play buttons Ro: on top of the cupcakes Mark: We don’t squoosh them do we? Ro: You can squish them a little if you want Mark: There we go! Ro: Yep! Mark: You’re gonna be cleaning it Tyler! Tyler: I love you! Mark: Ahm… That’s really good! Both: Ta-da! Ro: Here are the YouTube Play Button Cupcakes that we made today! Ro: A big thank you to Mark for helping me make these today! Mark: You’re welcome! Mark: And a big thank you to my own personal Diamond Play Button
