DINOSAUR FOSSIL CAKE ft MatPat! – NERDY NUMMIES


Hey guys, it’s Ro welcome to another Nerdy nummies. look who it is! We have a very special guest today. It’s Mat! I’m back! MatPat. Yes, I’m so excited to be here Ro. Yes We are baking today something from the nerdy nummies cookbook, and I thought you were the perfect guest because in celebration of Jurassic world We are making a themed Dino treat and we also made a video over on your channel. We did we did around this subject. We did a jurassic world theory together, Ro and I. I-I was worried though When you said you invited me on specifically for this episode because I thought you were gonna say I’m older than dirt No, no, no. No, that’s not it. We just both think dinosaurs are cool Yes, and that’s why I’m like yes, cuz look at this cake This is a paleontologist’s dream. That’s true. Ro, impress everyone at home with a dinosaur fact. Oh, okay I got an impressive one Dinosaurs had feathers. They actually look probably more like birds. That’s true But I gotta say seeing a t-rex walking around with feathers would look really, really silly I know just look like the biggest chicken you’ve ever seen *Dinosaur/Chicken noises* I love the Triceratops and when I try to imagine it with feathers Yeah, Triceratops is your favorite dinosaur? I think I fell in love with those when that movie. What was it? Land before time? Yes! With little foot? Ro: with little foot and Sarah. Mat: And he’s got his little neath. With the water that he can see his mother’s face, and then the Sharptooth comes… And it’s really a huge chicken…this whole time. It does. It loses something when it’s got giant feathers. This is one of my favorite days, we’re making something Dino themed, Mat’s hanging out, Today’s gonna be good. Okay. Are you ready? You gotta throw your finger up. Both: Let’s get started Keep spinning. Yeah, you keep spinning. The things you’ll need will be quarter cup vegetable oil 1 and 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour 2/3 cup of cocoa powder 1 and 1/3 cup of sugar 1 cup of sour cream and 1/3 cup water 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. 1 teaspoon baking powder one and a half teaspoons of baking soda half a teaspoon of salts and four large eggs Both: Now, let’s put it all together! First thing that we’re gonna do is mix together all of our dry ingredients That we have in front of us. You pour in the flour then cinnamon baking powder baking soda double-handed, double-handed Ah, I’ll throw in the salt. ♪Salty, Salty♪ Then? Sugar, of course. Hmm Cocoa powder, this is gonna make it a chocolate cake! It would be weird if it made it a gingerbread cake.. And then lastly brown sugar then whisk together until well combined. Matt, I’m gonna put you to work. So just stir but keep it down here, don’t go too fast or everything’s gonna come out of the bowl I thought I thought I was only here to to look pretty and make lame jokes on the side I have to actually do cooking. If you can use host today Yeah, I’ve gotta take cookie on a walk. I’ll be back. That’s gonna be a long walk. You got it, Matt, you can do it! Next step, in a medium bowl whisk together all the wet ingredients All right. All right, so here Matt you’re gonna pour in the oil. I’ve got the water. ♪You’ve got the water♪ What if you did an entire episode of nerdy nummies… …as a musical *Ro realizes that’s a good idea *She just dropped it. Her mind was so blown, she just let go the eggs and is gone. It’s happening right? All the ideas. Right! We need outfits. This could be the microphone. Whoa Were gonna have to wash that one. All right, we’ll add our eggs Matt. You’re gonna add two. I’ll add two. We’re gonna add the whole egg. All right, we’re gonna do one handed egg… You said to add the whole egg, so there it is! Minus the shell!! Ohh. No shells! I’m gonna do, we’re gonna do hardmode here. Okay Ready? We’re gonna crack ’em. And twist one handed egg crack, two eggs at a time. Okay. Are you ready? Yep, okay. Just try to get the egg in the bowl you got this Matt ready? I got this. One two, three and a crack and a twist. Yup. Yes. Yes. Yes Zero shell in there. It’s okay. It’s only one. It’s only one. Now, we scoop in the sour cream. Now I know that you thought it a little weird, but it’s gonna taste so good in the chocolate cake. I’m excited to taste test it, I don’t think I’ve ever had a cake with sour cream or at least not that II’ve known of. Oh it’s so good. Ohhh Ya! Last but not least a little vanilla extract. My personal favorite. Then once again Mat, will you’ll mix it together, ’til it’s well combined. I am SO ready! Yes, can you imagine if these were a scrambled egg omelette? So at this point we have our dry ingredients we have our wet ingredients time to mix them together and then, see what happens. Pour that sour cream mixture into the dry. Okay, now we gotta whisk together *Mat looks at camera like model* And I’m gonna go really slow because I don’t want to spill anything. This is gonna be delicious this mix is so well, so easy oopsies Ha- Some recipes are a little bit more difficult to hand mix. So I prefer electric. But I hear that you’ve been working out, Ro? Yeah, I have. So you got those guns. Look at those. Did you feel them? Feel how strong! No! Ah this is so hard! I’m putting my whole body into this. Whaaaaaaa! Oh! Oh my gosh! I’ve got some work to do. Yeah, I..I do have..a lot of..work to do, I think, is what we’ve just seen here. My goal is to become the Rock. Yeah? But little so like the pebble! Batter is ready, it’s time to pour in our pan over here. We have two 8-inch round pans. They are both greased and I put a piece of parchment paper at the bottom So that they come out easy after they bake. It’s a really good idea to do that That is a really good idea. All right, now, we’re just gonna eyeball it. Okay, go go go. Go go go go go And tell me when How deep should it be in the pan? I don’t, ahhh…. that’s good. Great! Switch! Yeah, there we go, there we go! Well done! So our cakes are all ready to be put in the oven, just preheat it to 325 and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. There we go. So while our cakes are baking we’re gonna take the opportunity to make ourselves some dinosaur bones That’s right. You just so happened to have some lying around. I found these cute little dinosaur fossil molds. These are so cute. These ones are made by Fred. I’ll put a link down below I found them online. I thought they were perfect. We are also holding some white melted chocolate We put into piping bags. Would it be wrong of me right now to pipe this directly into my mouth? Well, then we wouldn’t have enough bones, for the cake.Yeah, but I would have a bunch of white Chocolate in my mouth Mhhhhh… decisions So fancy. Oh my gosh, okay. Okay, you can have a little bit, Mat, but now save some for the dinosaurs Okay, fill ’em in while your chocolates still hot. It’s really good. Fill in your mold It’s rare in my life that I’m presented with a bag of just melted chocolate. So I’m very excited about the prospect. You’re like ‘Oh!’. This is gonna be my new desert of choice. Do you want some ice cream, you want some cake? No, I’ll just take Just take a bag of melted chocolate, it’s fine! Then give your tray a little tap, it will help get all the little air bubbles out of the chocolate mold and smooth it out. Tap! Tap! Tap! Tap! Tap! Tap! Tap! Get those air bubbles out. Yes! Get those air bubbles out. Yes! Get those air bubbles out. Yes! Newest dance craze. So this is the part that I’ve been really waiting for. We’ve got our graham crackers. We’ve got our Oreos, it’s time to crumb ’em, we are gonna crumb them together to look like dirt. I really gotta ask Ro, what did you do with all the stuffing in those Oreos? Ate ’em We’re gonna be crumbing them one at a time. We’ll start with Mat ’cause Mat, you’re the guest. Oh, thank you. All right So let’s break these apart. We’re using a food processor, but you can also use a blender. Here we go ready? I am so ready! Pull and you’re just gonna pulse it, keep breaking it up. Pulse! Pulse it! Oh, oh here’s the pulse button. There you go. It’s on this side. Pew pew pew pew. It’s really fun Mat, you wanna try it? I would love to pulse! Okay, hit this button, go pew pew pew. Okay, pew pew pew..pew…peeeeww..pew pew pew Oh that looks great! That’s it! Okay now, pour it in here, and I don’t want the blades to fall out. Well.. They always do that! Pshh, wishful thinking. Let’s grow some Oreos! Okay? Im ready! Ready to pulse? Whoo! Okay I’ll hold it, wait, wait, pulse! Pulse, pulse, pulse.Pulse.Pulse. Pulse…Pulse There we go, there we go. Bada bing bada boom! Now, this is the most satisfying part of the recipe and I’m gonna let you do it. Mixing them together to make it look like dirt. It’s so fun! I think…I can’t be selfish. You have to do this, you’re the guest. You worked for this. Are you sure? I bet we -I bet we could find another spoon here. No, no, no, you do it, you do it! It’s two dirts becoming one. Here it is, here it is! Ohhh wow there it is. All right, this is looking pretty darn good, so let’s set this one off to the side so as you can see our cakes have baked and have had plenty of time to cool. And I just stack them together with a little bit of chocolate frosting in between and now we are going to frost and decorate, the cake. All right. Now I’m gonna give you one of these Okay. So I’m just gonna pipe an outline on the top of the cake like this. I’m gonna do half Now, you do the other half. I got this..Follow the line, follow the line, follow the line, follow the line! Yeah, yeah good pressure fill in the top you can be quite generous so don’t feel like you’re gonna mess up It’s fine and just do zigzags like this zigzag zigzag zigzag. Woow, now you do it, you do it! That’s really good, okay. It can get a little messy. That’s okay Now I’m taking an Offset spatula and we’re gonna smooth it out and to do so we’re using a turntable if you don’t have one of these at home, that’s okay. You can just move your hand, but this makes it a little bit easier. Ugh I gotta move my hand? ‘Cause look at this look you hold it in one place and then gently just apply a little pressure Not too much to frost the sides of the cake apply even pressure And work your way all the way around and then we’ll do another layer. Just try to get the frosting to stick to the cake Okay squeeze. Is this a good pace? Yeah, this is great! Here we go, okay,, I think that is the top of the cake there I think we’re pretty good. Right then, again taking the offset spatula place against the cake and then we’re just gonna turn it and you can spin around a couple times, ’till it’s as smooth as you want. Ro! Everything looks so good these bones turned out so well! Everything’s coming together It’s gonna be so cute! Time to decorate and it’s super easy. Our cake is frosted. We moved it to this little stand and I’ve got the picture from the book, okay? All right I’m gonna let you put the bones on I’m gonna let you do the honor So just follow the book. Put the little head over here. Okay, you want the head over here. Yeah, yeah. Okay And then you gotta fit his little body on and what I really like is that if you want to reposition something you can do it! It’s okay because then we’re just gonna put cookie crumbs all over the top. No one will know. It’s so fun! Oh my god. Can you imagine if you found bones like this in your backyard? I would love it I would have a party. I also love this where like you have little bone fragments that came out So it does kind of..Yeah, you can break them. Maybe you can stick them in the side Okay, stick them anywhere on the sides of the cake Oh, here we go. Got a little ribcage right here. Oh jeez It’s fine, five second rule. Boom, get in there Alright, boom. Oh wait, you did this? I I knew that! It’s cookie time! Cookie time! We’re gonna make it rain cookie crumbs all over this cake now. I always, make a mess when I do this, and the reason is because, the sides of the cake, it’s just hard to get it to stick Are you ready ? I’m gonna bring this over to you. We just leave this here and just sprinkle on the top. Yeahhh Aw, he’s getting buried. Well, let’s get the sides of the cake. Yeah, how do you? Now, be fearless. Just take your spoon of cookie dirt and just…just fearless. Okay, fearless fearless fearless. I I just I also like that the cookie plate has a lip because it keeps all the cookies in there. Clearly It’s doing a good job of keeping all the cookie dust in there. So we’ll continue doing this until it’s completely covered Ta daaa!

  1. I grew up with dinosaur's I really wanna be a paleontologist and I love matpats video's so I was really excited when I saw this

  2. Not all dinosaurs had feathers! Trisaratops did not have feathers, only the two legged ones most likely had feathers because dinosaurs are separated into two groups, they are based on the dinosaur hip bones. Saurischia means (lizard-hipped) and Orntithischia meaning (Bird-hipped) lizard-hipped ones are most closely related to today's alligators and crocodiles then other reptiles and the bird-hipped ones are most closely related to today's birds. So if anything the bird-hipped ones had bird like feathers and the ones who walk on four legs like a Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and all the long neck plant eaters for example would have reptile like skin. Please do more research before saying that "all dinosaurs" had feathers. ?

  3. One of the few videos that I watch just to relish in the beautiful "sibling" moments of these two. They're so cute together.?

  4. I think it would be great if Dwayne Johnson would do a video with Ro. ? I actually see them working well together!
