I Followed A Bob Ross Tutorial – ON A CAKE!


Hello guys and welcome to my channel. I’m Amanda and today we are here with a different kind of video. This is a trend
that’s going around but I’m gonna do it in a different way. I saw Chloe
Rose doing this and I also saw Super Rae Dizzle doing this so
go and check their videos out as well. I decided that I was gonna paint a Bob
Ross painting on a cake. I don’t know why I decided to do this but I thought that I
would do the trend. I really wanted to do Bob Ross tutorial but in a
different kind of way . I am painting one of his paintings and I’ll put the
video that I followed in the description. I did want to do this in a different
way, where I set up like Rae did when she had a canvas there and her face
and stuff while I was doing it and do it real time but unfortunately I just
couldn’t find a way to set that up where you would be able to see the cake and me
at the same time because I had to have the cake flat so I did bake the cake
myself it was a Victoria sponge cake with vanilla
buttercream and strawberry jam and then I covered it in buttercream. There was two layers and I put some fondant over it so that I could
have a good base. I will tell you that this isn’t my first attempt. My first
attempt was I did one layer of cake and I put white chocolate ganache over it
and then I tried to paint on it and it just wasn’t working the surface was too
shiny and the color wouldn’t stick so I just decided to do the buttercream and fondant
method. The first thing that I did was mix up some water icing a lot of people
call it, I call it roya icing but there’s a lot of different terms for a
lot of different icings in different countries so basically it’s just icing
sugar and water mixed together and then I put some food colouring in it to make
the colours. I couldn’t get black or a very dark color and it was really, really
hard but I did it and the pallete knife that I had wasn’t the best either.
I had a rounded palette knife where as Bob Ross
uses another palette knife and don’t worry, all of the stuff that I used to
paint on this cake is completely non-toxic, fine edible, the paintbrushes
that I used have never been an actual paint, They were brand new and some of
them were even pastry brushes or one I have used for pastry brushes before
so it was really fun to do actually and I did it really quickly. Matt came in from
work about four half or quarter five-ish and I had finished it by half-past five
it so only took me about 45 minutes to actually do it and it wasn’t the whole
painting like I wasn’t paint in that whole time I was going back and forth and
trying to mix the colors that I needed as I needed them because I only had two
little tubs to put my butter cream in and mix them together and I had a blast
doing it. It was really fun and it actually makes me want to do a proper
Bob Ross painting on a canvas with oil paint and beating the devil out of the
brush and all that stuff. That would be really cool but yeah it was it was fun
and I liked it and I was happy with it and the cake tasted awesome as well and
I still have some in the kitchen that I might munch after lunch that rhymed.
This is just a fun little video, just to show you what I did. I did show you a
little bit of the cake baking. If you didn’t know I am really passionate
about baking and I really want to incorporate it a little bit more on my
channel maybe do some decorative artistic things to do with cakes. If you
don’t mind I could do that on my other channel though. I have another channel
to put all that other stuff on if you just want to keep this traditional or
digital art style but I am really passionate about baking and I love doing
it it’s really fun and I like to see the people – the thing I like the most is
taking the cake to somewhere, somebody else or whatever I’ve made cupcakes,
cookies, cakes, whatever and giving it to them and then trying that in front of me
and saying that’s awesome. Like that that’s just a total, I don’t know,
satisfaction thing for me, I don’t know, it’s really bad
but I don’t mind giving the cake to the person and then just in it without me
seeing it but it’s fun to see their reaction to the cake that I make because
I think that I’m really good at that and I think that I could come up with really
cool flavors. I stopped baking for a while so I haven’t done it in a long
time but once I get going again and try to perfect the bland-ish flavors like
the vanilla and all that stuff. I want to get into a little bit more baking.
and I actually want to get into like baking or cooking things. I was watching
a video on how to make beef wellington the other day and I think that
would be cool because it kind of mixes baking with cooking and the same kind of
sense and that would be awesome. Anyway that was a big tangent about
how much I love baking but I really do love it and I suggest that you try this
just bake yourself a cake get some fondant put it on and get a couple of
brushes, some icing and splat it on and make a little picture I think
that a lot of artists should try this because I’m pretty sure that you could
probably get a better result than me. The actual painting looks better on camera
than it does in real life but I think that I could probably do a better job as
well if I got the right tools and if the buttercream was a little bit more solid I
could have used it more like a paint rather than a splodgey mess. I just had to
keep on putting layers or no layers on and if I waited a couple of days the
buttercream would have hardened and I would have been able to put more layers on but
I just wanted people to enjoy the cake while it was still fresh so I did it as
quick as possible. I really, really enjoyed doing the reflections from the
trees underneath the mountain into the water that was really fun I basically
just did the background with the water icing the blue background with
the water icing and I did the rest with buttercream because the icing was not as
opaque as I would have liked, although I think if I was to do it again I would do
a little bit more of the water icing because you can get more intense colour
and just keep layering it on. Again I was really, really rushed
for time. Well I wasn’t rushed. I just wanted to rush myself which was bad but
yeah if you want to see me actually create a Bob Ross painting from one of
his tutorials then I will definitely do that normally without the cake part. I
wish that I could share the cake with you guys that would be awesome if I
could just give everybody, all my subscribers some cake but unfortunately
I can’t do that so I’ve just gave it to my mom and dads and I’m gonna give some to my brother and obviously Caiden, me and Matt will be eating it as well. It
does taste delicious so I’m really happy I did that. Anyway, yeah just thought that
we would change up we’ve been doing a lot of artistic journey videos and I’ll
link that in the cards above as well. We’ve been doing that a lot so I just
thought there would be nice to take a little break and do something a little
bit fun and something that doesn’t have as much stress on it. Even though the
artistic journey videos don’t really have that much stress on it I’m just
playing and experiment and then learning as I go and recording it for you guys
but yeah I’m really excited that I did something a little bit different. I
hope that you guys enjoy it too. I know it’s not your conventional art video but
I enjoyed making it, it was really fun. I wish that I had better like angles and
stuff and I wish that I recorded me making the other cake like I recorded
the first cake that was a failure me making the first cake and then I didn’t
record the second cake because I’m silly I loved it it was fun. Even though
Caiden kept on picking little bits of icing and fondant off of
it while I was trying to paint in it. That was annoying but yeah. That’s it guys I have made a cake with a Bob Ross painting on it and I’m actually really happy and
it’s made want do a little bit more creative things with circular
cakes and things and trying to perfect my barking application on cakes too. I think
I might do that but then that means that I’ll have to have more people eat cake. (sorry I cut out the audio here but I was just saying that I need to stop buying chocolate and just make stuff when I want to eat sweet stuff so that I make myself bake more and eat less junk!) – so obviously I need to get the chocolate
chips and then there would to be chocolate in my house but then I would
have to make the cookies to be able to eat the best version of the chocolate
chips. Does that make sense. I don’t know but anyway guys I think I’m gonna end
this video here and just going munch some cake. I hope you enjoyed that. Please
