Making & frosting a beachball cake
by alyssa fakunle
To start off you will need
- serrated knife
- 2 boxes of icing
- shortening or butter
- circle cake pan
- Spherical icing smoother (optional, it can also be made out of cut out cardboard paper )
- cake batter
- food coloring
- 3 bowls
- butter knife or just something to ice your cake with
- decorative black icing
First you must pour all of your ingredients into the bowl ( as stated on the back of the box) and beat them until then are at a reasonable consistency (2 minutes).
Once your mixture is at a reasonable consistency you should now fill your circle cake pan up half way so then you can now bake your mixture for 36-40 minutes( before you pour your mixture into the bowl be sure to put butter/shortening and flour around the interior of your bowl so your cake doesn't stick to the pan).
Once your cake is finished baking you will go ahead and take it out of the oven and let it cool down until it is firm at the top (let it cool for about 5-10 minutes at the least).
After, you have let your cake cool for about 5-10 minutes you will now place a plate over the top of your cake pan and flip it over. After you flip it over you will take your serrated knife and begin to level out the bottom of the cake.
Next, once you have leveled out the bottom of the cake, you will begin the decorating part of your cake. To begin this process you will need to first start off with a layer of your white frosting (this will take up one of your containers).
After, you have put on your base layer of white frosting you will now apply three thin, diagonal lines of your black decorating jell to divide the different colors. Once you have completed this step you will want to let the icing dry for about 5 minutes (during your wait time you will want to take your 3 bowls and begin putting yellow, blue, and red food coloring into separate bowls. After that you will need to apply a small amount of icing and mixing the colors to make you red, blue, and yellow icing).
Once, the icing is finished drying you may now begin applying your red, blue, and yellow icing to every other small triangle, after you have applied all of the colors you are finished.
If you decide you want to BE CREATIVE you can always bake another cake and frost them together to make a sphere cake
what i learned
sucessful or not
what would i have done differently
The main points of my project are about the process of making and decorating a half spherical beach ball cake.
I believe this is a worthy project because it not only teaches you about the process of making and decorating a beach ball cake but it also teaches you about putting together and planning an instructional project.
