Frozen Cake Olaf HOW TO COOK THAT Ann Reardon Disney Frozen Cake


Welcome to How To Cook That
I am Ann Reardon After many many requests today I am making
Olaf the snowman for the movie Frozen. I am making this one quite small, you can enlarge
it to any size you like I’ll give you tips for that as we go. To start with print out Olaf in the size that
you want your cake to be. This one where he stands on one foot works well because you
can run a cake spike right down the centre to keep it stable. The cake spike has to be
firmly attached to your cake board because if it is unstable so will your cake be. I
am using a hot glue gun here just to give it that extra connection so that it doesn’t
move at all. Next take you print out and find three circle
objects in your kitchen that match the width of each body section. The one you use for
the middle you can also use for the top of the head as well.
Whenever I make a cake people always ask can I use a packet cake, can I use a store bought
cake, so today I am using a store bought cake to answer that qusetion, personally I don’t
think they taste as good but yes you can use them. For an Olaf that is about 27cm tall
you will need three 20cm round cakes. Take two of your cakes and cut two of your
larger circles which are for the bottom section You should be able to get the large one and
one smaller one out of one of them. And then just cut the one larger one out of the other
one. Stack up your two bigger ones, tip them on them their side and check that they are
tall enough for that section of the body. Then take another cake and cut out two circles
in the size of the head this will form the main bulky part of the head, but you need
to cut another small circle from the left over cake for the top bit of the head.
Then we are going to use the cake scraps to cut out your feet, to do that I didn’t have
a circle the right size so I used the printout cut it the right width and turned it and cut
it the right width again so that you’ve got a square.
And then cut the corners off the round it out.
Repeat that for the other foot. Starting with your head pieces place the printout
over the top of your cake and then looking at it from directly above cut off the cake
that you can see so that you are left with the shape of his face. Then stand it up and
round off the front where the top of his cheeks are when he is smiling. Add you filling of choice, I am using lemon
butter because I think it goes well with the frosting I am using and then put them back
together. Now towards the back we need to add the top of the head section. So place
the template over the top piece and trim each side. Then cut a chunk on an angle just like
I am doing here so that there is room for the eye balls to fit into the head.
Add some more lemon butter and place it on the top of the head at the back of the cake. Now for the middle body section. My piece
of cake was from the side of the cake so it is already angled down like the body is. If
yours isn’t then just cut a piece off to angle it down. Then place the template over the
top and trim it to size. Then use your knife round off all the edges so it looks like a
snowball. For the main part of the body join the two
circles of cake together using lemon butter, tip it on the side and cut around the body
shape, folding up the foot as you go, turn the cake ninety degrees and trim the sides
to match what you’ve just done. If you don’t trust yourself doing this free hand then you
can just use the template again. Placing it over the top and trimming it off. Then have
a look at your shape and shave off tiny bits of cake at a time until it is rounded all
the way around and looks like the body. Now for our feet trim around the edges of
the base section just to round it off. And then place it up against the template an cut
it to the right height. And do that for both of your feet. And now we are ready to assemble our Olaf. Firstly add the foot.
Then you really need to add a support in here next I didn’t do that because the cake was
getting eaten straight after it was made. But even then I probably should of added it
in. So do adda support if you don’t know how to do that watch the minion cake video and
it will show you how to do that. Place the template in from to see what angle
the body goes on then slide that down into place. So the support should sit there just
between the body and the foot. Then add a little bit of lemon butter, and then slide
on the middle section. Then finally add the head, I’ve put mine on a slightly straighter
angle than in the printout had it because that makes it a little bit more stable.
Now we want to cut out some cake where his mouth goes. So just look at your print out
to see where abouts his mouth goes cut a line going across on a slight upwards angle and
then chunk it up on an angle to take out his mouth section. Now to make the frosting of your choice, I
am using italian meringue because it is white and snow like. And the recipe for that is
on my video 7 different frostings recipe, I’ll put a link to that video and the minion
cake one in the description below for you. Once it is light and fluffy spread a really
thin coat all over the cake, this is just to catch all the crumbs so that when we put
on the next coat it doesn’t have any cake crumbs through it which makes it not look
like snow. Add a generous second coat of frosting and
then smooth it out as best as you can. This can be a bit tricky and I like to use a piece
of plastic and then just drag it up because you can bend it around the body and then drag
it around to smooth it out. Once you’ve smoothed it them use a knife or a palette knife to
Then using a knife or a palette knife to indent around each snowball join to make the body
sections clear. Cover the other foot in frosting on the top
and sides, add it to the cake and then put italian meringue on the bottom of the foot
as well. Keep the left over frosting as you’ll need
some more of it later so don’t get rid of it just yet. Now place some chocolate melts in the microwave
and on full heat for 30 seconds stir, 20 seconds stir and then bursts of 10 seconds and stir
it until it is smooth and melted. Place it into a plastic bag and cut a little
bit off the corner. To make the sticks on top of olafs head Pipe
the chocolate onto a bag of frozen veggies. By piping it here and not on a flat surface
it makes them look more like sticks because they are not completely flat obviously they’ve
got little twists and turn to them. Pipe plenty of extras ones and that way you can number
one choose the best ones for your cake but number two when you serve the cake you can
give everyone some of the chocolate. Make sure when you are piping you make them
longer than you need so you can poke it into the top of the head and it is still the right
length sticking up over the top. To make the coal for our buttons, take the
middle out of some oreos and then crush the biscuit part up using a rolling pin. Bring
the crumbs together into a pile and using your finger make a coal sized little hole
in the centre. Then fill that with your melted chocolate and repeat two more times.
If you are new to how to cook that make sure you watch the videos on tempering chocolate
and what chocolate to use for decorations. I’ll link to them in the description below
as well. It is important that you watch those if you don’t work with chocolate regularly
so that you understand how to make sure that your sticks on top of the head and the arms
don’t just collapse at room temperature. Place a piece of baking paper over your print
out and pipe some eyebrows. Again do more than one so that you can choose the best ones
afterwards. Then do the same thing for his arms, if you are using tempered chocolate
then leave it at room temperature to set, if you are using compound or fake chocolate
then you can just put that in the fridge or freezer to set. To make the nose take 6 orange starburst lollies,
unwrap them and put them in the microwave for about 10 seconds. This will make them
soft so you can squash them all together. Roll it between the palms of you hand to make
a carrot shape and then pull one end to extend a piece that you can poke that into the head.
On some non-stick paper run a knife around the carrot making those indented lines that
they have. Leave that to cool and firm up. If you can’t get starburst lollies where you
live then you could use fondant for that step instead. To make the eyes take 10 marshmallows
and heat them in the microwave in 10 second bursts until they are melted like this. Keep
adding icing sugar and mixing it in until it you can knead it into a ball. This will
make more than you need and you can colour it and then use it for the nose if you don’t
have starbursts. To make the eyeballs exactly the same size roll a ball, then cut it in
half and roll each half into an eyeball. For the centre of the eye I am using store bought
black fondant you can use licorice or chocolate here if you prefer. Roll it out and cut out
two circles using a straw and place them on the centre of each eye. Then roll the tiniest
balls of white that you can and add them to the side of each eye to give it that glisten. Roll out some more black and wrap it around
the top half of each eye ball a bit like the eyelid. Back to our cake, using your knife make room
for the carrot and poke it into the head. Then add your eyeballs nice and close to the
nose. Mix some of the black and white fondant together
to make grey, roll it out flat and cut it into a mouth shape, and then place that into
place on the cake. Now add extra italian meringue around the
eyes at the top, just between the eyes and the sides , smooth that off and then add your
eye brows. Now add the twigs to the top of his head,
when you’re doing that look at the picture of Olaf and try and get them in a similar
position so that it looks just like the character. Now poke in his arms.
Then brush the excess oreo crumbs off the coal and add your lumps to the front of the
cake. Then make a rectangle of white fondant and
push it into place for his teeth. You can see here the bottom foot has squashed
right down, which is why I said you really need to add support there, if you’re making
a Bigger Olaf then you’ll need to add in two supports one between the foot and the body
and another one between the body and the head. support just before the head too.
