How to make a baby shark cake?
- butter, sugar, salt, whipping cream
- 4 large eggs, room temperature
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Blue, red and green liquid food coloring
- 4 ounces ready-to-use rolled fondant
- Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. In a large bowl, beat cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5-7 minutes. Beat thoroughly after each addition of the eggs, one at a time. After combining the flour, sour cream, salt, baking soda, and baking powder, add the mixture to the cream mixture in batches, stirring well after each addition.
- Pour the batter mixture into the baking pan. Bake until edges begin to brown, about 25-30 minutes. Before transferring it from the pan to the wire rack to totally cool, let it cool for 10 minutes.
- In the microwave, melt the fries with the cream until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Set aside to cool a bit. Meanwhile, in the insulated bowl of a stand mixer, beat the egg whites, sugar, and salt until blended. Place over boiling water in a large saucepan over medium heat. Beat continuously, heat mixture until thermometer reads 160°, 8-10 minutes.
- Then beat the mixture on high speed until it cools to 90°, about 7 minutes. Gradually beat the butter, a few tablespoons at a time, on medium speed until smooth. Beat in the cooled baking chip mixture until well blended.
- Leave 1/4 cup of frosting aside. Spread blue frosting between the layers, all over the top and edges of the cake, then tint the remaining frosting to the desired colors of blue. Redden 1/2 ounce of fondant. Half the remaining fondant. Make one portion blue. Whiten the opposite part only. Roll out the white fondant to 1/8-in on a surface sprinkled with confectioners’ sugar before doing the same with the blue fondant.
- Cut the mouth hole, teeth, and body shape on the lower part of the white circle using a sharp knife. Attach the blue circle with the white fondant cutting. Roll the red fondant to a thickness of 1/8 inch, cut a little triangle, and insert it into the mouth opening, on top of the white fondant, and then the blue fondant.
- If required, lightly brush water onto the fondant to aid in the adhesion of the layers. Cut a triangle for the fin and a crescent moon for the tail from the remaining rolled blue fondant. Attach the shark’s fins and tail to its body, if required giving the edges of the pieces a small water brush to aid in their adhesion. A small amount of specialized icing is used to adhere the candy eyeballs to the shark’s body. By lightly pressing on the frosting, place the fondant shark on the cake’s top.
