And some home made lolly pop splashes coming out of the top of the pool. Firstly you'll need to bake two round chocolate cakes and make one quantity of chocolate buttercream. I'll put a link in the description below to howtocookthat.net and there you'll find all of the cake and frosting recipes and recipe quantities and amounts of everything that you need to make this cake. I am using my rich chocolate cake recipe. And once you've made it and let it cool use a cake leveler or a knife to cut each one into two even layers. Now to make the jelly belly very cherry frosting. To do you are going to need 5 bottles of soda. I got these and the giant gummy bear from vat19, I love it when I discover a youtube channel that didn't know existed before and it's great fun. Me and my boys ended up watching many of their videos and writing a big wish list and we had their catchphrase end of video vat19.com song stuck in our heads for days. ANyway you should go check it out it's really cool. Turn that on to boil, we want to concentrate the flavour and the sugar. To do that it will need to boil for about 40 minutes. All pans and stove tops are different so don't just time it you'll need to add a candy thermometer to your pan and let the water evaporate off it's ready when it reaches 238F or 114C While you're waiting check out vat 19 and then make some simple syrup. To do that mix together half a cup of sugar and half a cup of water and stir until it is dissolved and boiling. Then remove it from the heat and let it cool down. Check your candy thermometer when it is getting to around 200F or 90C Place four egg whites into the bowl of an electric mixer and mix them until they have soft peaks. Once the jelly belly soda is at 238F or 114C take it off the heat, turn the mixers on again and pour the hot sugar syrup into the bowl in a thin stream. Keep the mixers running, if you feel the side of that bowl it will be hot, you want to keep whipping it until it has cooled down. And is thick. To assemble, place a small amount of chocolate buttercream on the base, add a layer of cake then pipe a circle of buttercream around the edge. Using a pastry brush dab on some of your cooled simple syrup, this helps make the cake really moist. Then add some of your very cherry frosting and spread it out. Having the buttercream on the sides like I have got here. That helps stop the inside frosting from spilling out the edges of the cake which makes it easier when you are trying to cover the whole cake in frosting. Repeat that with two more layers of cake then cover the whole thing in buttercream. Get the edges as straight up and down as you can so that when you add the kitkats they have a flat surface to stick to. Then add those kit kats all the way around the outside edge of the cake. Secure in place with a ribbon. I actually added the ribbon later, but it will be easier if you add it here. To the left over frosting add some blue colouring and mix that in really well. Then add that onto the top of the cake. If you are making this cake the day before the party then stop there and do the rest of this recipe on the day of the party. Now to unwrap the giant gummy bear, this thing weighs 5 pounds that's 2.3kg which is like a premie baby. And just like a newborn it can't sit itself up. So we are going to need to support it with cake spikes 1. so it will sit up right and 2. so that it won't squash our cake. Take three wooden cake spikes and spike them into the base of the bear in a triangular shape so it will stand itself . Then place it into the top of the cake. Then add your blue m&m's around the base of the bear. To make our blue lollipop splashes. Heat the sugar and water in a saucepan and stir until it is dissolved. Once its dissolved wash down the sides of the pan using a wet pastry brush and let it boil unstirred until you see one area start to turn golden. When you see that remove it from the heat immediately. Stir in some blue food colour and then spoon onto some non-stick baking paper. Once you have made a nice splash shape add a lolli pop stick to the lower side of the splash. Once they are cooled completely they will set hard and then you can just add them into your cake to make it look like the bear is jumping into the water to make it look like the bear is jumping into the water and making a big splash everywhere. And there you have it a very cherry giant gummy bear swimming pool cake.
