I Tried Making ROSANNA PANSINO'S GALAXY MIRROR CAKE... How Hard Was It???
hello everyone and welcome back to my kitchen today I'm really excited because I'm going to be
cakethat I've only up into this point admired from the comfort and safety of my couch and that is the
cakethey are super mesmerizing to watch I see them all over like Facebook Twitter Instagram it doesn't matter I just watch them I'm like oh I need to eat it but also make it so what I decided to do was go on YouTube invite the most viewed
cakeand that happened to actually be a fellow youtuber
pansinoand I've watched it through once and oh my gosh it's beautiful also if you don't know you need to go and subscribe to her because she is the most adorable human ever this video has 20 million views there's a lot of human but I decided to see if I could follow her recipe and create my very own mere glazed
cakehaving never made one before wish me luck make sure you give this video a thumbs up and subscribe so you don't miss out on new videos every single Saturday and without further adieu let's get into this so I've created my own little like setup station here with all the same ingredients that she has done as well I
triedto get as close to if not exact replicas because I wanted to like follow the recipe as closely as possible no mistakes possible so I already have my little my little
cakes already done it's from a box I got the lie to you so that's all done that was a process so the...
first thing she did was level the
cakes which we all know is none specialty and it seems by the end of it she doesn't have four layers three layers the first thing I'm gonna do is level off the top of both of the
cakes so that they're nice and like even layers hopefully and then I'm just gonna solve this one which is a little bit thicker in half so I end up with the same number of layers as she does I've never used this before so this will be interesting why should I do it yes look at that feel like a pro literal Stage one Rachel oh look at that such a professional is it bad that I just want to eat it like just like a cookie okay ro what's next okay now we're gonna ice it poops they do my little piece for frosting our little turntable here I learned very quickly that I did not have a lot of elements for baking
cakes properly so I'm gonna put a little frosting right in the center Boop this guy right smack dab on top so he doesn't move around and then I'm gonna cover this layer with icing oh no it's gone there we go not as cute as our zanna's but you know what's gonna work does she spin it while she ice is it I don't know if I'm that talented yet oh no she just goes around okay let's try this again all right hips do a lot of smoothing here but you know what I got the icing on so much icing all over Mary's ugly very soothing I am quite enjoying this it seems a little bit lower on this side so I'm gonna add...
some more icing to like this part here trying to make it even you know and then for the last layer she said to turn it over so the bottom of the
cakeis on top like this so and then we need to let this chill for about 20 minutes in the fridge until all the icing is kind of like set so BRB ok we're back it has been about 20 minutes and now we're going on to icing there's the
cakeand what it looks like she's doing is she gets the top of it first then she does the sides up and down then we came in to the spatula mastery that I'm a little scared of I also changed the the the piping thing to a round one I'm already messing this up I was
Rosannamake this looks so easy and I make it look like my 3 year old has done it right guys do a refill on icing because they didn't actually say in the recipe how much icing to prepare so I ran out I've always wondered how long it would take someone who's like actually going to you know school for this but not someone who's just trying to get by right now like how long does it take you to actually learn how to do this speedily cuz I see this on like the food now at wow I'm struggling right now I see people like row like people on the food and they just do this since like and there's just it's done but I see some of you in the comments that are saying that you're Baker's for a living or you are in culinary school by the way also really appreciate all of your comments like very...
constructive helpful encouraging you're all very nice people ah dropping icing all over the floor don't let me step in that and I'm probably gonna step in it they're like my piping tip is way too small for this okay now let's clean that out all right now that we have the icing all over the
cakelook above now we have to smooth it out and I need to watch this part again okay take this the offset spatula me I'm learning she puts it on an angle and she spins the
cakearound okay okay let's start with that part don't move the angle Rachel ah no idea what it looks like yet you're all gonna see it before me she said if it doesn't look cute the first time just go around again so I'm gonna do that it's not great it's not terrible either then she smooths over the top and she pushes all of the icing out to the side I am currently attempting to do I must focus oh no don't lift up the spatula ever what only bad things happen how come mine does not look as smooth as hers and she takes all the icing on the side and she scoops it up with the end like the tip of her spatula I mean it's a cute rustic looking
cakehang on okay I think I got it too like an okay place the trick for me as someone who doesn't do this often or ever is I ran this under some hot water and use that and it really helped with the consistency of the icing just kind of smooth everything out and just made it a little bit more malleable and easier to work with...
no don't touch it you might have had a different consistency for her icing which is why it looked it looked almost like nice and light fluffy which is not the thing that I ended up with so that might have just been the difference and which is why I needed to heat up the spatula but now I am going to go and let this chill for two hours as for her recommendation and then we'll get on to the next step so while the
cakeis chilling we're gonna go on to creating that near glaze that is going to give that really pretty effective I'm very excited to pour it all over my
cakethat is going to be the best part so first thing we're gonna do is we're going to take a half a cup of cold water this is in the fridge I'm gonna pour that into a separate bowl because dirtying as many bowls and spoons is very important to the process of cooking and then I'm gonna take my gelatin and pour that into the cold water and stir it around until she says it looks like applesauce so it looks like next we are combining some stuff to go on to the stove and that is some more water some light cornstarch Oh so gopai and some sugar and I'm gonna go and put this on the stove until all the sugar dissolves I also started when I was over here just as a heads up that is an important step muster it is now dissolved like I'm crushing this so now I'm gonna add in the bloomed gelatin talk like solid now and now that that is sort of like dissolved now I'm going to add in...
some sweetened condensed milk pour that and oh it looks sooo good I know this is all whisk together I have my little bits of chocolate here and she was more specific about the type of chocolate I guess there are some types of white chocolate that this doesn't work very well for so I
triedto get some good stuff and I'm just gonna pour this hot mixture over top of the chocolate to melt it she recommended getting coverture chocolate so that is the one that I am getting because I want this to be as close to hers as possible right this has been chilling for about three minutes or so so now we are going to take the little hand blender and we're going to blend it all up because apparently this is the best way to get the look smoothest consistency for the chocolate oh that looks amazing gonna take my strainer and I'm going to strain the mixture to get out any lumps bubbles that kind of thing I want this to look like a
mirrorokay now it looks like we're going to split it up into five different bowls for the five different colors to create that like
galaxyappearance all right bowls have been divided where the colors I
triedto pick up the colors that were like as close as possible to what she had so in the big bowl we're gonna do a little bit of blue and a little bit of black and the other big one we are going to do just blue and then for the three small ones we are doing a purple pink and a very light blue like I need a baby spoon there we go now we're...
just going to stir them all up okay now I have the two colors that I want I have the
cakein front of me got a grower nervous guys I'm gonna take the bright blue and I'm going to pour it in to the dark blue and kind of swirl it together to give it that
galaxykind of illusion really gentle okay it's pouring time we're just gonna lift it up and I'm just going to write all over the
cakeOh guys ooh that looks kind of cool it's very dark that I do have my other little colors here yourself put those in there just gonna do some streaks purple oh I shoulda made it a little bit lighter weight it's fine but like that'd be more one thing then just a little bit of pink which when you think about it feels a little weird cuz like why is there pink but then you see it on
cakeand you're like oh yeah no that is definitely needed and I'm just gonna take the spatula and I'm gonna call across it really really gentle and the spatula is also try to call it the tray it's also I heated it up a little bit just so it would like go across a little easier am i ruining this feel like I might be ruining this and then she took a little bit of like a black glitter and flecked it on and she's a paint brush I'm using barbecue brush but you know close enough right and she just went like this to get like glitter going on it not enough glitter more glitter let's see it oh my cell looking like yours oh that's better I went a little...
bit closer then I have some white paint to create the illusion of stars or not uh-oh boom oh oh I'm doing it oh cool it's not great but I like it I'm proud of myself this is what it looks like from the top guys is it
