Dodger: It’s gonna be awesome. Ro: Yes, we’re gonna make 1-ups and… What’s
the red one called? Dodger: I don’t know… Mushrooms. Ro: Power
Mushrooms? I think they’re called Ro: Power Mushrooms. Dodger: We’re gonna

both use, so… Ro: Yeah, we’re gonna be like Dodger: It’s gonna work out great. Ro: Perfect!
Dodger: Hey, and I don’t have to Dodger: sit in a chair, like all of your other
guests. Ro: Yeah, this is the first time, on Nerdy
Nummies, where, we don’t have to Ro: adjust this camera angle, we’re both
petite ‘lil ladies here. Dodger: I’m really excited about that. Ro:
Me too! Ro: Let’s get started! Dodger: Today, what you will need is a giant
bowl, some creamy frosting, yes? Ro: Mmmhmm, creamy, no whipped! Dodger: Not
whipped frosting, creamy! You will Dodger: need a cake, already made, already
done with that part. Ro: All ready! Dodger: Some lollipop sticks, and some wax
paper. Ro: Yes, you shall also need Ro: big marshmallows, not the little marshmallows,
green chocolate, which we will Ro: melt, and red chocolate, which we will
also melt. And these! Dodger: What are those? Ro: I don’t know
what these are, I found them in the Ro: flower section, but it’s basically just
foam. 2 Foam to stick Ro: the cake pops in. Dodger: Foam. Ro: And,
fancy frosting squirt bags. Dodger: I’m really excited about the frosting
squirt bags. Ro: I think the… Dodger: I think the squirt bags are gonna
be the best part of this. Ro: And a little bit of black food coloring
dye. For their little eyeballs. Ro: Let’s get crackin. Dodger: Let’s do
it. Ro: We are cutting the cake, pre-made cake.
Dodger: Are we doing it in fourths? Ro: In half, oh yeah, let’s do that, do
it in 4. Dodger: OK. Ro: Into pieces because what you’re gonna
do with the cake is you’re gonna make Ro: cake crumbles in our big mixing bowl.
Rub those 2 together, it rubs the Ro: 2 together in the bowl! Dodger: Like this?
Uh-haha it put’s the lotion Dodger: on it’s skin. OK. Ro: Yeah, so you
just, ber-ber-ber-ber-ber Ro: Making zeh crumbs. Dodger: Oh I see, well,
this is… Well, pfffft, yeah! Ro: And, you can also break em up with your fingers, if this isn’t. Dodger: Look at this. Ro: Perfect. Dodger:
Magic. Ro: Welcome to baking. Dodger: This is going
so well. Ro: We’re making cake Ro: pops today! Dodger: Huge chunks going
in. Ro: Ta-da! When it is done it should look
like that, a whole bowl of crumbles. Dodger: It feels really awesome when you put
your hand in it too. Ro: It’s like really soft. Add 1 can of
frosting. Dodger: OK, the whole thing?!? Ro: Yeah, ready? Dodger: Wow that’s really
thick! Ro: OH! Oh! Dodger: OH! Dodger: Oh it’s all going wrong. Are we?
OK, do we just like mix Dodger: it in with your hands? Ro: Mmmhmmm.
Dodger: I’m on it. Oh it’s getting Dodger: like, super… It’s like dough the
more that you put in. Ro: Yeah. Dodger: The more that you put in it, like
firms up a lot. Ro: Yeah knead it like Ro: dough. And the ratio that I use is just one
cake, one cake mix, with one frosting. Ro: Take a gander. Dodger: Behold. Ro: It
should get really mushy like that. Dodger: Really sticky. Ro: And basically what
we’re gonna do next, is instead of Ro: making like little meatballs, we’re
gonna make little cake balls. Ro: So if you’re Italiano. Dodger: Oh my,
this will be easy. Ro: You know Ro: how to… Dodger: Easy mode. Ro: Yeah,
know how to roll a meat-a-ball! Dodger: Alright, let’s do it. Ro: Same difference,
let’s do this. Ro: So we’ve got the tray lined with wax
paper, we’re gonna roll these little Ro: cake balls and then put them in the freezer
for about 15 minutes. Dodger: 15 minutes? Ro: Yeah, let’s get
this goin. Dodger: OK, how big should Dodger: they be? Like… Ro: Kinda smaller,
because if they’re too heavy Ro: they’ll fall down the cake pole. The
cake… Dodger: I feel like my hands are Dodger: not going to be good at this right
now. Ro: Just gonna stick him on the tray. Dodger:
What does wax paper do? Why use Dodger: wax paper? Ro: It’s so they won’t
stick to this surface, apparently Ro: nothing sticks to wax paper. Dodger: What?
Ro: They use it to separate like Ro: everything in baking. Ro: Now, we are done with our cake pop meatballs,
and we’re gonna put them in Ro: the freezer for about 15 minutes. Ro: While those are in the freezer, we’re
gonna heat these up in the microwave for Ro: 30 seconds, our colored chocolates.
Dodger: Ah we’re holding our colors. Ro: Oh, cause we’re so like that! Dodger:
Magical… Ro: Yeah, so organized. Dodger: Yeah. Ro: Yeah, and we’re gonna
be super efficient because while these Ro: are in the microwave, you’re gonna take
your big, jumbo marshmallows, and Ro: we’re gonna chop these in half. Dodger:
Doin 3 things at once. Ro: Yeah, efficiency. Dodger: What? Efficiency!
Ro: Efficiency. Pff-pfff-pff! Ro: These, are really, really hot so be careful.
They came out of the microwave, Ro: They’re all nice and melted. So what
you do is, you, um, take one of the Ro: half cut little marshmallows. And you
stick him like halfway down the stick. Dodger: Halfway down? Ro: Yeah, so he won’t
get. Dodger: Like here? Ro: Yeah, so he won’t get any dye on him.
And then you dip him in the frosting, Ro: the tip, get a little on there, it’s
kind of like glue. Dodger: Like that? Ro: And then take a little cake ball and stick
it in the bottom. Dodger: OK, ooh, these are cold. Ro: But don’t
put him in all the way, cause, Dodger: Because it will fall through? Ro:
Because it will fall through. Dodger: OK, so then do I push this back up?
Ro: A little bit. You want to Ro: pull him down. Dodger: Oh so down a little
bit? Ro: So he won’t get the Ro: red on him. Dodger: OK. Ro: Just kidding. Ro: OK I’m excited, I’m excited. OK, um
straight down, don’t swirl it. Dodger: No swirling? Ro: Just straight down
and back up. Dodger: Ah, ah, oh no! Ro: Oh no! Both: OH! Ro: First one, perfect! Ro: Sometimes they do that, the hardest thing
about cake pops is, when you Ro: pull it down, sometimes the chocolate
wants to suck it off. So you… Ro: It’s a tricky thing. OK, so dip this
tip. Dodger: OK. Ro: Got a lot Ro: of frosting on there. Then stick him in
there. We’re gonna dip him straight down. Ro: And I go really, really slow. Dodger:
Oh you, like, submerge it all the way. Ro: And then just hope it doesn’t fall off.
Dodger: Oh, oh. Ro: Seriously. Dodger: Oh dang, look at that. Ro: That is
luck! Dodger: Submerging I think Dodger: helps it a lot. Ro: I just twirl it
a little bit so that the excess… Dodger: So it evens out. Ro: Can fall off.
Ro: I saw this on, I think it’s Ro: Cake Bella, she is the creator of cake
pops, she taps it a little bit. Ro: And then we’re gonna stick it over here,
in the foam, while it’s drying. Dodger: OK. Ro: And then we’ll push up,
oh I think it can go, I’m not sure. Ro: Yeah, I think it’s OK. Ro: Oh no! Here we go, here we go. Oh I’m…
I’m just gonna keep doing this Ro: until it drips because last… Dodger:
Just keep on, when you turn it, it’s Dodger: the turning! Ro: No, nooooo!!! Dodger: I’m really depressed. Ro: 1, 2 up. Dodger: Boom! AH! Ro: 1, 2 up,
1, 2 up. It’s up, it’s up. Dodger: It looks great, it looks great, it
looks great, I don’t want to jinx it. Dodger: I don’t want to jinx it but it looks
fantastic. Ro: I’m gonna hold it right there, it ain’t
going nowhere! Ro: Out of 100, we made 1… Hahahaha! Dodger: I think this one is my favorite. It
literally is like raaaaaaah! It’s terrible. Ro: Dodge is up, we’re gonna do this. Dodger:
I’m putting so much, Dodger: so much frosting on this time. Ro: Straight down. Dodger: Straight down.
Ro: Down and gentile, up,up, up and twist! Ro: Haaaaah! Dodger: I didn’t go quite…
ungghhh deep enough. Ro: I like it. Dodger: This one kind of looks
like he has an elvis hair-do. Ro: Yeah, he has hair-do! Dodger: He’s like,
oh hey, got my hair did. Ro: He’s got some cake in his hair. Dodger:
At the mushroom kingdom salon, oh Dodger: yeah he does. Ro: Yeah he does. Dodger:
Shhh, what cake? Dodger: So, we learned stuff… We learned
that, um, the cake pop, like the actual Dodger: breading needs to be really cold.
Ro: Really frozen! Dodger: Yeah, Dodger: like, if you let it thaw at all, the
stick goes right through it. Ro: They fall, so the first ones that we did,
we didn’t have any issues with them Ro: falling down, but then over here, they started
to get warmer from the freezer. Ro: And then we put them back in the freezer,
so… Freeze, freeze. Dodger: Freeze. Ro: Do these when they are
very cold. Dodger: Cake pops… Freeze. Ro: Later on they started to actually look
like little mushrooms. Dodger: Yeah, and Dodger: we learned, we learned the, uh, the
commit technique. Ro: Yeah. Dodger: You dip and then you pff. Ro: Yeah,
dip and then commit. Dodger: Yeah, Dodger: you commit, you can’t just, like,
gradually let it drip while you… No, Dodger: it’ll fall. Ro: They fall all over
the place. Ro: So now we’re gonna let these dry, and
we’re gonna decorate the pretty ones. Ro: And the fuglies. Ro: Ta-da. Dodger: Ta-da. Ro: These are our fancy mushroom cake pops
that we made. Dodger: Don’t they look great? Ro: I kind of like this guy, but I also like
the REALLY angry guy. I don’t know if Ro: you guys can see him in the back but he’s
just like, so angry that he’s so fail. Ro: I like the one that just says WHY? This
little guy, look at him. WHY?!?! Dodger: So thanks for watching… No but,
Ro: Thanks for watching. Dodger: we actually do have, like, ones that.
Ro: Yeah, just kidding! Ro: So these were the mess-up ones, and the
ones that actually kind of turned out, Ro: that actually look kind of cute. Dodger:
Yay! Ro: Fa-da! Dodger: Wee! Dodger: So some of them did good. Ro: They’re
so cute! I don’t know, I have to pick Ro: my favorite one. I don’t know. I really like, uhhhh Ro: Thanks for watching another episode of
