Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! I have been playing a lot of Mario Kart 8
lately, the new DLC came out and I have been rolling around as Link. Whew,
ha! Beep-Beep! So, I thought it would be the perfect time
to make something Mario Kart themed. And, we have a very special guest that’s
coming today at the end of the show, and when I say special, I mean, like, super
special! So, today we are gonna be making Mario Kart
8 Koopa Shell Cake Pops! Let’s get started! The things you will need for your cake pops,
will be: 1 chocolate cake, you can use any chocolate cake recipe that you’d
like. I’m using a milk chocolate cake and I will put in the description the little
recipe, but you can use anything you’d like. You’ll also need 1 tub of chocolate frosting,
a styrofoam brick to put your cake pops in. You’ll also need a big mixing
bowl to mix it all together. And then to decorate our pops you will need
4 chocolate colors, you’ll need off white, red, blue and green. And of course,
you will need some lollipop sticks, a cookie sheet, and a piece of wax paper. Alright, let’s put it all together! The 1st thing that we’re gonna do is crumb
the cake, so what you’re gonna do is cut your cake into 4 sections. I’m just taking a sharp cutting knife, going
right down the middle, make sure your cake has had plenty of time to cool. Then you’re just gonna pick up 2 slices
and you rub ‘em together over the bowl. Rub, rub, rub, rub, rub! Now that we’re done crumbing our cake, now
we’re gonna add our frosting and what you want to do is add 75% of this
tub, so you can save a little extra for some snacks! And now you’re
gonna mix it up. Now that our cake pop dough is ready to go,
you’re gonna take your cookie sheet with a piece of wax paper on top so
that it doesn’t stick, and we’re gonna roll our little cake pops. And you want
your balls to be about an inch and a half big. And then just place
it right on top of the baking sheet. Oh you could do some workouts, so I like to
do squats, when I’m doing these. Hmmm-hmmm-hmmm. Once you’ve got all your little cake balls
rolled, we are going to chill them now. You can either put them in the refrigerator
for about 2 hours or you can pop these in the freezer for about 30 minutes, you just want them very cold, but not quite
frozen. Once the little cake balls have chilled in
the fridge, now we’re gonna attach the lollipop sticks. So I’ve heated up a
little bit of our off white melted chocolate in the microwave, and what you’re gonna do
is you’re just gonna take a little lollipop stick and a cake ball, and I like to poke
a hole first. So I poke the hole about 1/2 way down, and
then you’re gonna dip the lollipop into the chocolate, and place it right back
in. And then you’re gonna do this to the rest
of your cake pops. Now we’ve got all of our little cake pops
assembled, we are going to dip them into some chocolate! I poured the off white
chocolate into a little cup so that its easier to dip and we’ve got our styrofoam
block here on the ready. And remember to poke your holes ahead of time,
you don’t want to do it once you’ve already had the pop dipped. Alright, so you’re just gonna take any pop…
Da-dew! And remember you want them firm, but not frozen.
And then you’re just gonna dip them straight down… Wait till the chocolate
touches the end of the stick, wa-dew! And then pull up! Up, up, up, up, up, up,
up! Let the excess chocolate drip off into the
cup, and then you’re just gonna start spinning your little pop all the way around.
And tapping, giving it a little jiggle, letting the excess chocolate drip,
drip, drip! Then we’re gonna stick it over here in the
foam block, bewp! Now we are gonna decorate our cake pops to
look like the 3 different Koopa Shells from Mario Kart. We’ve got our green shells, red shells and
the blue shells, which are my favorite. The seek out the leader and they’re the
best! That’s why I’m wearing blue today! Blue’s the best! Alright, so what you’re gonna do is you’re
gonna take a little cake pop, and we’re just gonna dip it half way. Then let the excess chocolate drip off, just
go drip, drip, drip, drip, drip! Then you’re just gonna take your little cake
pop and put him back over here to dry. Next we’re gonna make a red shell, here
we go. And again, you’re just gonna go halfway
down, just eyeball it, don’t need to be fancy. Let the excess chocolate drip off,
then stick him over here. Ooooh, let’s do blue, my favorite! Halfway down, let the excess chocolate drip
off. Then you’re gonna dip the rest of your cake
pops. Once you’ve dipped all of your cake pops
to look like the 3 different shell colors, now we’re gonna add a few final touches
for decoration. I am using fondant, but you can use frosting
if you’d like. I am just going to be making the rim that goes around the shell. What I got going on down here is I just taped
down a piece of wax paper, so that the fondant doesn’t stick to your
surface, a little white fondant. And then I’ve rolled it out, like so. Now you’re just gonna take a cake pop, bewp! And I have a, ohhhhh what’s down here? Extra
piece of foam! So you’re gonna take your rolled out fondant,
just put it at the edge connecting the green and the white, and then on the 2
sides you’re gonna bring up the fondant so that it looks just like the shell. And, here it is, reeeeeeeeewww! And you’re gonna do that to all of the rest
of your pops. This next part is completely optional, we
are gonna be adding some decoration details to top of our shells with these icings. We have 3 different decorative icings, we
have red, to match the red shell, green to match the green and blue to match
the blue. And I’ve put a number 2 tip on the end of
each of these for a little bit more control. OK, so I’m gonna start with red and I’m
gonna be drawing little hexagons, all the way around making the turtle shell
design. As I’m drawing the designs on with the icing
I’m also using a toothpick to make little adjustments. We’ve got our shells decorated and now we
are going to make the gap where the little Koopa would be living, the little
hole, little turtle shell hole. I’ve got black icing with a number 2 tip
at the end for a little bit more control. It’s gonna look just that and we’re gonna
do it on both sides on each of our cake pops. Now we’re gonna decorate using the last
icing color, this is off-white frosting and again I put it in a plastic bag with a
number 2 tip at the end. We’re gonna flip our little cake pop upside
down and we’re gonna be putting 4 lines on the bottom of the shell to look
like the little turtle! This is just for the blue one, it is the final
decoration step, we are gonna add some little spikes to these shells. I have rolled little fondant to look like
little spikes, but if you are not a fan of fondant you can also use white little
chocolate chips or any other candy. You can get creative with it! So you’re just gonna take your little spike,
ee-hee-hee, it’s a unicorn Koopa shell! Ta-da! Here are our Mario Kart 8 Koopa Shell Cake
Pops, I hope you guys like enjoyed them, I love making them. But, I wonder what the creator of Mario would
