Popin Cookin Icecream, Sushi, Cake Kracie #3 #5 #2 HOW TO COOK THAT

Welcome to How To Cook That
I am Ann Reardon You asked me to do a popin cookin video so
I ordered these in from Japan, we don’t have have them here in Australia. Lets start with this birthday cake kit, I’ve
got three different kits for you. And the first thing you will notice is all
the instructions are in Japanese, is that why you wanted asked me to do a how-to video? When you open it up don’t rip the packaging
because you’ll need it, open it up, take everything out and cut along the dotted lines. So you’ll have your packaging, all the little
packets that come inside, a cute piping bag a stirring spoon and decorations that they
gave you. Cut along the lines on the plastic container
so you get your triangle measuring cup and the strawberry molds seperate from the rest
of it. Now we are ready to begin. You’ll see that the tray has a star and a
heart at the base so you know which one to do in which. In the star one pour the orange packet and
into the heart one tip the yellow packet. Add two scoops of water to the big one and
one scoop of water to the small one and stir them both really well getting into all of
those little edges. And then tap it on the bench 10 times to get
rid of any air bubbles and then just pop it in the microwave for 50 seconds. Once it is done use your spoon to loosen it
from the edges and then tip it onto the plastic sheet. For the strawberry cream add the red packet
to the heart space and mix in one scoop of water. To make the vanilla cream place the dark blue
packet into the star container and mix with two scoops of water. To make your strawberry jellies mix the pink
packet with one scoop of water and then tip that into the strawberry mold. Cover the bottom cake in vanilla cream then
add the small one on top and cover that too. Place the strawberry cream into the piping
bag and cut off one corner. Pipe little dots all the way around the edge
where the tow cakes are meeting. Then on the top layer pipe some little lines
of pink following the line of the cake. Now you can of course decorate it however
you want it. Then add the decorations that they gave you
and I’m just putting around the joins where it is coming up all around the top of the
cake. Add you strawberry jellies and pipe some more
pink. You can leave it on the plastic sheet that
they have given you or place it onto a plate. Now for the taste test. HMMM, it’s not bad, but it’s not great either. It’s like dry cake with a spoonful of packet
vanilla pudding with it. As a kid I probably would of enjoyed it I
definitely would of enjoyed the process, I think that it’s cute, it just needs some work
on the flavour. Lets try the sushi one. This is s sushi candy so it should have a
different flavour none of the vanilla cream mixture in this one. Your packet has the plates and a couple of
templates on it, then you have a spoon, a dropper bottle and all of your little packets
of ingredients. First to make the rice, use the dropper bottle
fill the oval container up to the fill line. Then add the blue packet in and mix well. To the whirly shaped pattern add water to
the fill line again then add the yellow powder and mix through this is going to be our egg. Smooth off the top there. Repeat that on the wavy one with the pink
packet to make the tuna. Tip it in, stir it through and smooth off
the top. And then to make the fake seaweed they have
given us black gooey soft candy. Just squash that and pull it out to the size
that you need on the template wrapper there and use a knife to trim it up. Now keep the left over bits and we’ll use
them later on other ones. Take some of your rice, roll it into a ball
and wrap the seaweed around it. Squeeze it together on the side to make it
stick to itself. Take another ball of rice, place half of the
egg on top just use your spoon to get it out. Then wrap the spare seaweed candy around,
it doesn’t taste of seaweed, wrap that around your sushi there. Roll another ball of rice and place some tuna
on top. Now for some cool molecular gastronomy. Add water to the fill line of A and of B.
Tip the orange packet into B and the green packet into A. Mix up A well, then wipe you
spoon clean . It is important that you don’t mix these mixtures together. And then mix B. Using the dropper bottle put drops of the
orange mix into the clear one and it will set straight away. Basically what is happening here is the orange
has a gelling agent that gels in the presence of calcium. And the clear mixture has calcium salts in
it so when you drop it in it gels. Scoop them up and place them on top of your
sushi so it looks like fish eggs. Lastly mix the brown packet with water to
make soy sauce. The sushi wrapper tastes like bubble gum,
the rice is chewy and sweet. The salmon and egg have a jelly like consistency. Overall it is sweet with a slight bubble gum
flavour to it. But lets try the ice cream one. Open your box, cut out your packet into pieces. Then we have a strawberry cream packet, sprinkles,
vanilla cream a mini piping bag a spoon and look at these cute little ice cream cones,
a dessert cup and some wafers. Cut the triangle off the corner and that will
be your measuring scoop just like we did last time. Use your scoop to cut a square off your wafer,
then a second square, and a third one and you’ll be left with a little piece that we’ll
use later. Pour the strawberry cream powder, which is
the pink packet into one side and the vanilla cream powder which is the blue packet, into
the other side. Add one scoop of water into each one and mix
well. Add the pink to one side of the bag and the
vanilla to the other, it’s a bit tricky to get it all the way down to the tip of the
bag. Twist the top and trim off the end. Pipe four dots onto one of your wafers, repeat that on the next one. Then on the last one pipe three rows of three
dots so the top is completely covered. Then stack those up and add some sprinkles
to the top. For the ice cream cones you just swirl the
mixture into the cone, add your little wafer bit to the side. You can use the holes in the centre of the
container that they have given you as a stand to hold your ice creams as you do the next
bit. Then fill your wafer basket with the left
over mixture and sprinkles on the top. Pipe some more around the edge and add the
heart sprinkles to that as well. You can use the wrappers they provided around
the ice cream and as plates for your creations. These look so super cute and taste like wafer
with the same vanilla pudding mix we had on the cake. Kids didn’t love it but they thought it was
OK. I think all of these are great fun to make
and look super-cute I’m just not loving the flavours. But I would of loved to make them when I was
little. What do you think have you had them before? And would you like me to make some recipes
for mini things that you can do yourself instead of having to use a packet? Let me know in the comments below. Have a great week and I’ll see you on Friday. [music: the boat song by Set Sail used with
