That is beautiful and delicious king cake here we go ladies and gentlemen get you a pot heated up on low heat all right guys so over here we got the ingredients for our dough so what we have here is six cups of all-purpose flour two 3/4 ounce packets of active dry yeast 1/2 cup of lukewarm water 2 eggs.1 cup of whole milk 1/2 tablespoon of salt 1/2 cup of sugar 1 stick of real butter and 1 8 ounces block of cream cheese so first,
We’re going to get this cream cheese and butter melted in our pot right here what did you do you did some with my big pot [Laughter] hey that girl alright first. I stick about it okay now that the butter is melted add the cream cheese in just kind of let that gets blended in there as well meanwhile we are going to add both packets of the active dry yeast to this half cup of water we’re also going to take a spoonful of our sugar.how to make whipped cream? here and add it to the yeast just really get
Things activated alright we’re gonna let that sit for ten minutes all right this is melting pretty good so we’re gonna go ahead add our salt and the rest of our sugar here there you go ahead and blend that in so once you got this smooth creamy consistency to go ahead and add the milk on.
And then just stir that around at this point you can go ahead and turn the fire off because we’re gonna need this to cool down all right so we’re gonna add this mixture to our mixing bowl. here okay so our mixture is cooled off I’ve decided to mix this up in my little mixer here with this little dome meter I normally do it by hand but I thought well let’s give this a try so we’re gonna add our yeast in go boo-yeah our two eggs bring this mix it downturn on the slow setting all right I don’t really know if how this flours. gonna fit.
We’re gonna see but we’re gonna start to slowly add our flour in here all right we got all the flour in there so just gonna let it do its magic all right that looks to be blended up pretty good so I’m gonna get that out of there get it on my counter here we’re gonna need it further ourselves all right we’ve got our dough out on our floured surface.
Here and we’re just gonna begin kneading it so you know to want to get some flour and all the sides over here so it doesn’t stick as much but you’re looking for a smooth consistency we shouldn’t have to do much because the mixer there did a lot for us more flour and if it’s still sticking a lot you can always add more flour to your surface alright that looks pretty good.
Homemade king Cake:
So we’re gonna add it to this bowl. here that we’re just going to grease up with some little bit of vegetable oil and then we’ll cover it with a wet towel and we’ll let it sit for two hours what the towel got my Saints don’t field advantage. right uh all right we’re just gonna let it sit in a dry place for two hours okay so our dough almost completely rises now we’re going to concoct our little ingredients here for spreading on the inside of the King cake we got 1/3 cup of light brown sugar. 1/3 cup of
Regular sugar and two tablespoons of cinnamon we also have a half stick of butter that we’re going to melt and spread in there. but for now, I’m gonna blend these three and I’ll stir that together alright girls I want to see the dough that has doubled in size seriously okay so one of the first things we do girls punched it’s rhabdo okay so we’re actually gonna cut this in half here because I’m only making one King cake.
king Cake Recipe
The rest of it I’ll save to make some beignets on another day all right let’s try to get this cut in half okay so I’ll vacuum seal this one put it in the freezer and we’re gonna start rolling out that one and so that means we’re gonna put flour back all over this counter.
As you can see we a normal family laundry ends up on the couch all right so the idea here is to get this rolled out to about 1 foot by 2 feet that’s what we’ll get going on here spread this out a little bit go it’s nice and flower in there start rolling all right this is looking pretty good.
So we’re gonna go ahead and melt that butter okay we’ve got our melted butter here so we’re gonna go ahead and lather up this dough okay oh go ahead and save the rest of this to put on the top of the king cake. alright next we’re gonna go ahead and start spreading our mixture here all right there we go so now we’re gonna start gently folding this over to what is a little roll here alright okay so now we’ve got a pan here covered with some parchment paper.
That’s been greased up a little bit let me get the King cake on their kind of spread it out a little bit to spread it out so that the ends meet also gives it room to grow and bake gonna work it from here I’m also at the same time tucking the bottom in real good.
There we go now we’re gonna overlap the ends here so that it connects and bakes connects and baking it yes okay we’ve covered this thing back up with a damp towel and we’re just gonna let it sit and rise a little bit for about 30 to 40 minutes pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees so I just wanted to show you guys this is the remaining dough from what we made earlier.
I’m just gonna toss this in the freezer and pull it out when I’m ready it’s really simple you just pull it out and let it defrost and it’s actually gonna start to rise in the bag and then you can make Ibanez with this same dough who knew okay so this is settled.
We’re gonna take the rest of that butter here and we’re just gonna lather the top of this thing all the way around time to bake.this bad boy bake that for 30 to 35 minutes depending on your oven okay guys.
So the King cake is almost done baking so now we’re gonna make the glaze which we got 1 cup of powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of milk. I’m just gonna blend that in there until it become
Smooth consistency and it’s just that easy there you go all right that is pretty if your scripts a little right there don’t worry it’ll be fine all right let’s glaze this bad boy it does look like a big donut huh sure does look like a big donut. but yeah so you guys see.
I’m kind of just grabbing the extra glaze here and picking it up and put it in in places that are maybe a little thin and you can always make some more glaze so it’s up to you looks good though you guys ready to sugar this up no this is the qualms of a video and I try to take my time here and hurry up and let him do it and the glaze hardened all right go ahead sprinkle.
That are right here there you go all right that works all right better get right here quick I’m just mashing it in there we go yep all right ladies and gentlemen and that is a king cake.
We managed to salvage it there’s a little rough but uh all the icing and all was still kind of hot it just kind of hardened on the top but other than that we got it ready to eat it furthermore it wouldn’t be a king cake. without this little dude right here you guys can stop him on the inside if you want but we got some young as in this house so what does leave them right there here we go oh that is beautiful all right so I know this isn’t our traditional ending here but uh my house is her break from making king cake.
But I gotta give you our bite right go ahead take the food that is traditional king cake at his finest right there it’s really soft on the inside it’s kind of a crunch on the outside from other sugar in the hardening of the icing and then it baked that kind of golden crust on the outside it has this great sweetness in there.
I know you’re probably thinking there’s a lot of sugar it’s gonna be too sweet but it’s really not that bad there was a lot of flour in there so I came out really good well all right guys thank you all for tuning into this video. I’m sorry if this one was a little shaky it was kind of tough put it together at times they got a little rough in the filming process but all I know.
I’m really happy with the results so if you happen to make this please send me your pictures show me what it looks like let me know how it tastes I’m really excited to hear from you guys know I don’t do many sweets so this is big for me but all in all one more thing like there’s one more thing I know we haven’t done here yeah oh yeah.
Lion king Themed Cake:
Everyone that’s robbing thanks for tuning in today on the robin’s nest we were going to be making an ombre buttercream lion king cake.
And I’m gonna decorate that with some fondant silhouette so I can’t wait to get started this is one of my absolute favorite styles came to make and they always turn out beautiful every time but before we do get started don’t forget to click that subscribe button to ring that Bell so let’s get into it alright so the first thing we’re gonna do to get this cake.
Started and rolled out some green fondant and we’re going to cover our cake board now we’re going to give to some time to firm up alright so the next thing we’re gonna do is mix up my nice and colors now like I said we’re gonna be making an ombre effect with the buttercream so what I’m gonna do is to use a little bit of red-orange.
And yellow and we’re gonna create like a sunset alright the colors all mixed up so now we can start actually working on the cake alright so start we’re gonna layer on some icing then we’re going to trim all this brown stuff off and then we’re gonna do our cocoa all righty then we can let this chill for a bit and start working on some decorations so the first thing. I’m going to focus on is all the little silhouettes of the characters it’s going to go around the outside of the king cake. So I’m gonna roll out some black
Fondant and start packing all right so there’s our ombre buttercream pattern I think it turned out pretty good next I’m going to put this in the fridge and let it chill for a little bit and then we’re gonna come back and we’re gonna finish off our final decorations.
At the top it’s for the final piece I decided to do a prog-rock king cake topper so for this I took a piece of fondant I mixed it up with some black and some brown food gel color and I twisted it around to give it a bit of a marbled effect so I’m going to sculpt that trying to make it look like Pride Rock.
And then we’re going to dust it with a little bit of these colored dust to give it a more realistic effect, okay so I finished my centerpiece now I’m going to go grab the cake and we’re going to try to put it on the cake.
The board already here goes nothing though a little piece of plastic and we’ll fix up bridges already all we have left just to put everything on the tape so I’m going to start with a black border around the outside. and then I’m going to start putting all the little characters on three on the outside as well and then apiece okay so I got all the decorations on except for the final one on top yeah 368 how it looks so I’m gonna put some straws in the top persistable some support except why the put a little piece of cardboard king cake.
Board on the bottom of that so that should help hold the weight so I made a little mark up where it’s supposed to go we’re just gonna put a whole bunch of straws in here but here it is my armor a buttercream Lion King cake was a bit of a challenge but I think it turned out pretty good pride rocks a little bit heavier than I’d like it to be but I’m pretty happy with it.

You can use either all for this recipe okay along with that you’re gonna need some sugar some salt some all and some unsalted butter at room temperature okay and for your optional ingredient you’re going to need some light brown sugar now this sugar cannot be added into the dough part of the recipe. this can be used in place of the regular sugar to put into the filling part of your king cake baby
Okay alright alright, let’s continue okay you’re going to need some whole milk at room temperature you’re gonna need some eggs at room temperature okay so both of these ingredients must be at room temperature all right and for our King cake.

You’re going to need one 11 by 17-inch pan now you can use something a little bit smaller than this but I’m going to use this pan here okay and along with that too you’re going to need some nonsticking spray and the glad wrap is to put along the top of the table so that way when we roll our dough and put everything I’ll cut everything out and breathe out King cake baby.
It’ll make for a much easier cleanup, okay and there you have it alright let’s get straight to it nowhere I have 1/2 cup of warm water and we’re gonna add the entire package of yeast right into there I’m gonna go ahead and mix that in alright now that we got that mixed in now we’re gonna go ahead and add 1 TSP of sugar that’s gonna feed these it’s gonna give me something neat. mm-hmm and we’re gonna go ahead and mix that

And if you don’t have that then you’re going to need a large dirty spoon to mix your ingredients and you also need some strong hands to knead that dope okay all right let’s get straight to it nowhere. I have my stand mixer with the dough hook attachment now we’re gonna add four cups of all-purpose flour gonna add it in there all at once and to that we’re gonna add 1/2 a cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of salt and we’re gonna go ahead and mix that in on a slow speed alright so in a small bowl.
