Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy
Nummies! Today, I got so many requests for an iPhone
cake… Pew! Pew! Pew! Pew! So today, I will be delivering, I will be
making an iPhone cake, and to make it interesting, I am gonna be making, for the first
time ever, a Zebra cake. To represent the white iPhone and the black
iPhone, which ever 1 may be your fancy. So, let’s get started! The things that you will need today, will
be: 2 large mixing bowls, 2 eggs, 1 rectangular cake pan, water, 2 small scoopers,
I’m using 1/4 a cup scoopers. Vegetable oil, baking spray to coat the pan,
you can also use vegetable grease like Crisco, whatever you have, and zebra
cake mix! I love Duff’s this is a really good 1, but
if you don’t have zebra cake, all you’ll need is 1 vanilla white cake mix, and 1 chocolate
cake mix. It doesn’t matter what brand, they’ll
work just fine. Let’s put these together. So in this bowl, we’ll be making the chocolate
cake mix. Pour in ‘ze chocolate! And in this bowl
we’ll be making the Vanilla white cake mix. Pour in the vanilla! They’re each gonna have 2/3 cup of water,
1/4 cup of vegetable oil for chocolate, and 1 tablespoon for vanilla. Then for chocolate
cake you’re gonna add the whole egg. Then for the white cake you’re just gonna
use the egg white. So crack it, and jiggle the yolk back and forth! Ta-da! We got our mixes put together, here’s
our chocolate mix and our white cake mix now we’re going to blend. And you want to blend the white 1 first. Now you’re gonna take your pan and grease
it. Make sure you get all the corners and the
bottom. And what you’re gonna do is you’re gonna
take a scoop, and you’re gonna alternate, and pour them directly in the center and then
the cake will slowly spread out. And you’re gonna start with chocolate, because
technically you have a little bit more batter with chocolate because we used the
full egg, instead of just the egg white. And then very quickly after, you want to work
pretty quickly, so your cakes don’t set and pour it again, right in the middle, and
it will push the chocolate out. Fer-der! Here is zebra cake. We just layered
and layered and layered! And that’s what it’s gonna look like before
we put it into the oven. So you’re gonna preheat your oven to 350 and this time you’re gonna bake for about 35 to 45 minutes, it just depends on your oven, so keep an eye
on it. Ding! It’s done! Once your cake comes out
of the oven, make sure it’s had plenty of time to cool, and then what we’re
gonna do is we’re gonna level it. So get your cake leveler, mine is, become
janky! He only has 1 foot now, so I guess we’ll have to take off his 1 existing foot, and we’re just gonna level it to make it
flat. After you’ve leveled your cake, you’re
gonna take of the top, oh, oh, oh! If I can! Oh looks so cool inside! I printed this picture of an iPhone, and that’s
the size I want my cake to be, it’s gonna be a little bit of a smaller cake, but that’s
OK! We’re gonna put it in the middle where we
leveled the cake, and then you’re gonna take a big cutting knife, and cut out the
shape. This is the same technique that I used when
I made Link’s shield cake. I’ll put a link to that… They… There?
Somewhere! Once you’ve cut out your shape, I’ve got
my iPhone cake shape, you’re gonna take vanilla buttercream frosting, and frost the
entire thing. Once we’ve frosted the whole cake we’re
gonna lay down white fondant. So we just put the fondant on top of the cake,
and I’m just pressing down lightly, so that the fondant will stick to the edges
of the cake. It will stick to the icing like glue. And we’re just gonna do 1 corner at a time
so that the fondant doesn’t bunch together. What you’ll do is just keep pushing
down, keeping it tight. And then you’re just gonna take a big kitchen
knife, cut off the excess fondant, and then reposition. After you put fondant all over your cake,
we’ve got all of our white fondant on there, we’re gonna take gray fondant
and roll it out with this rolling pin. I’ve put down this white stuff on the table,
is a little bit of powdered sugar, not flour, but powdered sugar so that the
fondant doesn’t stick to the table. And we’re trying to get a really long piece
here because it’s gonna wrap all the way around the cake, to be the border
of our phone. I found this crazy little roll-y thing at
the store, it’s for rolling, like, strips of ribbon that are even, and you can
adjust them however you want. I set it to 1 inch, and I’m just gonna roll
out my gray fondant. Meep-meep-meep-meep-meep-meep-meep-meep-meep! Now that we got the basic fondant on the cake,
it is time to decorate! I’m gonna be using black frosting with a
number 2 tip, I’m just gonna make the little speaker. Now you’re gonna take white frosting and
do the bottom. Now for the final touches, I’ve made little
teeny apps out of fondant. I did these all last night, so they’re
already pre-made, then I’m gonna take a little bit of water and a paintbrush,
to stick ‘em on there. Ta-da! We did it! We made the iPhone cake,
and my very first zebra cake, so I’m really excited! We got the iPhone 5! We have
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 rows for your apps and the bottom row! Eeee! Thanks you guys for suggesting it, this was
such a fun project! I’m really, really happy with it. If you

and I will do my best to make ‘em happen! And also, remember, Nerdy
