Last week was an amazing week as the Cakes by Lynz YouTube channel hit 100,000 subscribers, which is just so amazing, and thank you again to everyone that has subscribed. Because of this I really wanted wanted to mark the milestone with a special cake. You may have seen the 100K image that I created from cupcakes, for the blog and social media, but I wanted something I could share as a tutorial on my YouTube channel itself. I wanted to create a cake that celebrated what the channel was about, and after different ideas I decided on a baking theme cake. Baking is what every video has in common, and I thought this was the perfect idea!
So I set about making a step by step guide on how to make this anti-gravity cake. The anti-gravity cake features a cake that looks like my mixing bowl at the bottom, with the top decorated to look like it is filled with some funfetti vanilla cake mixture. The mixture is then being mixed with a cake version of my Kenwood Kmix hand whisk that has been featured in many of my videos. The cake is then finished off with my favourite blue spatula on the side.
I had so much fun making this cake and absolutely love how it looked at the end. The video tutorial features so many different techniques from building the inner structure from a 12 inch mdf board with 2 metal threaded rods, both measuring 27cm in length, attached with nuts and washers to the board. I then added additional nuts and washers to hold the separate cake board that holds the mixer in place, hovering above the cake. I then covered the mdf cake board with icing, in a marble effect, to look like a kitchen worktop.
For the cakes themselves I show exactly how I made the mixing bowl with the heart pattern on the side and lastly adding the whisk and the whisk attachments. With all the different elements combined I love how realistic and fun the cake looked.
One of my favourite parts of this cake is the whisk attachments going into the cake mixture. These are made from gumpaste pieces pushed into the cake and attached to the metal rods which were also covered in icing. I think this really brings this cake to life as it looks like they are mixing real mixture which is splashing up the side.
I really hope you enjoy this video tutorial and find it helpful if you are looking to make your own anti-gravity cake with an inner structure. There is alot of different techniques in this video, so if you have any questions or comments please leave them in the comment section below…
Here are a few more pictures of the final cake. I finished the cake off with some hundreds and thousand sprinkles that I added to the cake mixture part of the cake, as I thought this was very fitting for the cake to celebrate 100,000 subscribers. I also added the numbers to the front of the board to look like cake mix had spilled out of the bowl. I am a bit of a messy baker, so I really wanted to have cake spilling onto the board and I think it really gave it the finishing touch.
I just want to say a massive thank you again to everyone who has watched on of my video and subscribed to the channel, it really means so much to me that you enjoy the videos, and I really hope you like the cake!
