How To Paint A Birthday Cake

How To Paint A Birthday Cake


– Hello and welcome to another episode of The Shirtless Painter. I love you. Anyone can paint and
anyone can paint anything. Anyone can have a birthday,
which is why today we’re going to be
painting, you guessed it, a birthday cake. I invite you to take off your shirt, take out some paint,
and join along with me. Alright, so, I’ve got
my canvass primed here with just sort of some birthday colors and we’re gonna be running through some of the paints that we’re gonna be using so you can follow along at home. Let’s dig in. So the first thing we need
for a birthday cake is the cake, so we’re gonna get
some yellow cake color here. This was not found in Iraq. That’s a little yellow cake
joke that I sometimes make. The joke I make about yellow cake, that’s a little rhyme I say. We’re gonna just mix it up, get a nice strong cake color goin’ there. Look at that. And your cake doesn’t have to be yellow. Your cake could be, oh
your cake could be red, brown, funfetti, don’t let anyone tell
you how to live your life or how to color your cake. And if anyone tries, you send ’em to me. So we got sort of our cake batter here. Be sure to, the trick is to
keep it away from the black. You don’t want the black because it’s unappetizing. So I’m just gonna go ahead and, I’m actually gonna go ahead and mix up a little plate color as well ’cause every cake needs a plate. So we’ll sort of a nice gray disc going. Alright. Look at that. So I’ve got my flat cake pan brush here. And we’re just gonna dig right in and go ahead and start just doin’ a little sort of frisbee shape. If you don’t like frisbees,
well, I feel bad for you. Frisbees are fun to play. Whether on a team, ultimate frisbee, or just throwin’ it around
yourself and goin’ to get it, and doin’ it again. Alright, so we’ll really just get in there and give yourself a nice disc base. Look at that. Look at that. Alright, so we’ve got our
nice pan, cake pan shape here. Blow on it. Just kidding. Okay. Alright, so now we got the pan. Yum, yum, it’s time for some cake. So you could do as many layers
on your cake as you like. I’m just gonna start from the bottom. Now we’re here. We’re here painting. I like to think that Drake
song is about painting because you always gotta
start from the bottom, and now you’re here
with a lovely painting, all finished for your birthday,
or a friend’s birthday. And if you don’t like
cake you could do a pie, you could do a pizza pie. Either or, a pie or a pizza pie. Okay, so just go ahead and
build that up real nice. Give it as many layers as you want. Look at that. Look at that. I’m not a good baker,
but I do like to paint baked goods. This could be a birthday cake for you, this could be a birthday
cake for a friend, this is a great way to pass the time if you’re celebrating your birthday alone, or a great way to pass
the time with friends. Look at that. And some of the gray from your pan might get into the cake, cake mix there, doesn’t matter, it’s all goin’
to the same place, your eyes. They say the eyes are
bigger than the stomach, and well, I believe ’em. Alright. Okay, so we’ve got our
couple of layers there, couple of cake layers. And now to stick these two layers together we’re gonna add a little bit
of frosting layer in between. So I like the color brown frosting, and we all know that brown
is the mix of all colors. So we’re just gonna dip, dab, diddly-do, just do a little of all color brown. Look at that. Add a little more orange. That’s a lot of orange, great. And then this is a little
trick I like to do, just givin’ it a little dabbly-do. Just sort of chuggin’
along like a little train. Kinda makes your canvass flop
around like sails on a boat, and in a way it is a boat. Takes you on a journey
to an island of painting. Okay, so we’ve got our center
stripe, our fudge stripe. Great, look at that. Sometimes your paper towels
will get a little wet, and my motto is when it starts
to sop it’s time to stop, and start with a new paper towel. So always keep a few paper towels. I got these from the restroom at the municipal building in my town. Alright, so we’re just
gonna go ahead and add just a little darker shade
of cake mess right here. Just to kinda fill it in up top. Give it that nice cakey. And again, this is just a
system of frisbees, really, as I said. So give it that top frisbee
and really make it pop. Speaking of pop nothing goes better with
cake than, you guessed it, a nice cold soda. So again, soda is brown,
so we’re just gonna create some more of our brown which is all colors, here, so we’ll
just get a little dab of everything, sort of
a rainbow coalition. Mix it together. Look at that. Okay. So, I don’t know about
you, but I like to drink my soda out of small glass bottles, so we’re gonna go ahead
and paint ourselves a nice ice cold Coca-Cola
in a glass bottle, just like the old days. Okay. And it doesn’t have to be a Coca-Cola, you could drink Sprite, Sprite Remix, Coke Zero, anything you want. I tried Coke for the first
time just the other day. I didn’t sleep for a week. So I’m gonna make mine
a caffeine free ’cause who needs to be awake all the time? Alright, so that’s a little sloppy, but that’s okay, we’re gonna
spruce it up right now. We’ll get you some nice
little white highlights here. Just to really show the contours, sexy shape of a Coke bottle there. To me it looks like a woman. Don’t tell my wife. Look at that. Oh baby. Look at that. Very sexy. So we’ve got our main cake shape, we got our bottle of pop, we’ve got a lot of refreshments out, but every good birthday
party needs friends. So here, you could use real friends, you could use people you’d
like to make friends with, use your imagination. First thing I’m gonna
add because she might already be mad at me about
this Coca-Cola crack, so the first thing I’m
gonna do is add my wife. Just get it out of the way. Alright. So we’ll just mix up some
nice wife, wife shade here. And your wife’s skin could be any color. My wife’s parents were
adopted, so we don’t know where she’s from, so her
ethnicity is ambiguous. She’s just gonna be a tiny wife today. We’ll give her a nice little
party hat to celebrate. Sorta looks like a dunce
cap, but my wife is no dunce. Or a Christmas elf. So we just wanna give our
wife these black eyes. We’ll give her a surprised face, she can’t believe how big that cake is. She’s comin’ from work,
so we’re gonna have her in her nursing whites. My wife is a nurse. Great, look at that. Look at that. Beautiful. And well, what the heck,
we’re already halfway there, let’s go ahead and make her an elf. Just a little birthday elf. Christmas has its own
elves, but you don’t ever hear about a birthday elf, well, guess what, today it’s the
birthday elf’s time to shine. Maybe I’ll write a movie called,
My Wife, The Birthday Elf. Sound off in the comments if you think I should write that movie. Love to hear your feedback. Screenplay is really just
a painting with words, so keep that in mind. And little pointy shoes. And of course we gotta give her some hands so that she can make
the birthday presents. Not with Santa Clause, but with, well, we’ll call him Birthday Bob. He’s a man who comes to
your house every year and brings you birthday
presents for your birthday. Just a little character I made up. Sound off in the comments if you think I should write up Birthday Bob, or My Wife, The Birthday Elf. Okay, so we’ve got our Coca-Cola, we’ve got our birthday
wife, and of course, we’ve got our main birthday cake, but we need some more, we need some
more friends at this party. One of my favorite friends
from TV is, you guessed it, Bart Simpson. So we’re gonna just have
him peekin’ in real big. Just watchin’ over things. Makin’ sure no one’s havin’ a cow. Don’t have a cow. Don’t ever have a cow. Okay, just give him his
big ol’ spikes here. Look at that, look at that. Maybe he’s sneakin’ just a
little taste of the Coca-Cola. Whoop, I hope Marge doesn’t know. Just stealin’ a little sip. Wrappin’ his ol’ lips around it. Just fill him in. Gorgeous. And we gotta make sure that Bart knows that the hell he’s suckin’ on right now, so let’s go ahead and give him, let’s go ahead and give him some eyes. Sometimes you gotta reload on paint. Whoop, that’s okay. Just let it rain down. (glass shattering)
(cat meowing) Alright. Okay. Let’s go ahead and give him
some big ol’ eyes there. Big ol’ eyes, alright. And again, it’s a system of frisbees. So just think of Bart’s
eyes as yet more frisbees in your series of frisbees,
that’s all painting is. Everything can be boiled down to frisbees. Alright. Really get those big ol’
white peepers in there. Look at that, look at that. So some of the yellow might
get in there, that’s okay. Looks like he might have a bit of jaundice or some other disease. That’s okay, don’t have a cow. Don’t have a cow. Don’t ever have a cow. Okay, so we’ll just
fill in those old eyes. And, whoop, ay caramba, I’m drinkin’ a Coke, that’s
what he’s probably thinkin’. Or maybe it’s a Homer Simpson Duff Beer and we don’t know about it, shhh. Okay, so we’ve got our Bart Simpson, we’ve got our wife, and
we’ve got somethin’ to drink, and I know what you’re thinking, this cake is missing some icing. So this is when we go into our backpack and we get our icing. We won’t be needing this. And then we just go into
our front area here, this is where I keep all my tools, and we get our nice icing brush. Okay. So just go ahead and crack that open. Go ahead and take a big ol’
dollop of our brown here. And if nobody’s looking,
might as well take a taste. Mmm, shhh. Whoop, you didn’t see nothin’. Alright, so again, don’t
have a cow about it, just go ahead and ice it on
there, as much as you choose. Look at that. Look at that. Really lay it on there thick. Oh yeah. Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm. I don’t know about you,
but I’m gettin’ hungry. I haven’t eaten in weeks. And if anyone’s seen my
son, definitely sound off in the comments about that. Definitely let me know. Okay. And again, don’t be shy with the frosting. Really schlop it on there. Sometimes you might have to get low like they say in the music video. Get low, touch your toes,
do whatever you gotta do. Just make sure you cover
up all that mean ol’ yellow with some friendly tasty brown. Yeah. Oh hell yeah. Okay. Great, so we got our cake frosted. Now it’s time to add, you
guessed it, the candles. So we go back into our bag here. And we just go into our candle pocket. You’ve heard of a Candlebox,
well, that’s a band, this is a pocket, and
just start puttin’ some candles in there. As many as you choose. You’re the boss. Great. So this could be a cake
for a six year old, a 60 year old, or just
someone who can’t count. Okay. And now it’s time to light the candles. Now, if you’re a child,
don’t use a lighter, but ask your parents for some help. And if your parents
aren’t home, well then, just this once you could do it. Okay. Look at that. And it’ll start to smoke a little bit, that’s normal. Your painting will start to smoke, that’s quite alright. Thank you for joining
me today on this episode of Shirtless Painter. I invite you to take off your shirt and paint along with me at home next time. Happy birthday and I love you. (cheerful music)
