Hey guys! It's Ro. Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies. Today, I've got so many requests to do something Dragon Ball Z, and I've been meaning to for a long time because I love this Japanese anime. I've been watching it forever since I was a little, littler Ro.
So today we're gonna make fancy creme brulee cake balls, but we're gonna make them look like the little dragon balls. The things you'll need today will be heavy cream, corn syrup, vanilla extract, (Or you can use one fresh vanilla bean, but I'm just gonna be using vanilla extract. It's very easy.) four eggs, regular sugar, lollipop sticks, and star sprinkles. These were so cute. I found them in this pack (I just want to show you.), at Target. So they're selling the Justice League, little sprinkles set pack. That's where I found the little stars. And last but not least, one white cake, which I've already pre-made right here.
First thing we're gonna do is head over to the stove. We're gonna take all of our ingredients, and we're gonna make some creme brulee from scratch. Yum, yum, yum...
Now we're gonna make some homemade creme brulee. And if you don't wanna take the time to do this, if you're in a hurry, you can just go to the bakery store or the cooking aisle at the grocery store, and buy some pre-made creme brulee. But this is so good and so easy. Ok, so the first thing you're gonna do is preheat your oven to three twenty-five. Mine's already going. And then you're gonna need two pots, a medium-size pot and a larger pot. And in the larger pot, I've put a bunch of water, so you can start bringing that to a boil. And in the medium pot, we're gonna pour two cups of cream.
In the medium-size pot with the cream, you're gonna set the burner to a low heat. I'll put it...put it around three or four, and you're gonna slowly let it just slow boil. Now we're gonna add one teaspoon of vanilla extract to the cream, and stir a little bit. And if you make a little bit of mess, that's ok. A little extra vanilla never hurt nobody.
While the cream is heating up, we are going to mix together four egg yolks and six tablespoons of sugar. And just to get the egg yolks, just crack it, and you want the yellow. You don't want the egg white. Let the egg white go somewhere else. Just the yellow! So you just mix it for about thirty seconds until it's nice and smooth like this.
So the cream is starting to boil. It's getting all those bubbles. It's rising. Looks kind of fro...frothy. So you're gonna wanna remove it from the heat right away like so. And now you're gonna let it sit for ten minutes. And once it's done, you're gonna slowly add it to our egg-sugar mix here, and mix it up.
So here is our cream and egg mixture. And when I make it in, I pour in a little bit of the hot cream first, then mix it around so that the eggs acclimate that temperature. And then pour in the rest of the cream. The reason you wanna do that is so it doesn't cook your egg, which it actually could because the liquid is so hot.
Now take a spoon, and using it, just scrape the top of the bowl to get out of all the bubbles, so it's nice and smooth. After you remove all the bubbles from the top, you're gonna pour it into two...I have cereal bowls. Usually you'd use a little ramekin, but these are like individual size. But because we're just going to crumb them with our cake to make cake balls, I'm just gonna use two cereal bowls.
So the next thing what we're gonna do after you've divided your cream into two bowls is you're going to put them in the baking pan. And I put in a little towel, a lot of people do this. This is just a little washcloth. We're gonna stack the two bowls here. And that water that's been boiling on the stove, we're gonna carefully pour it about half way up. And then put this in the oven. It is set to three twenty-five. And bake for thirty minutes.
After your creme brulee is done baking, you're gonna put it in the fridge for four hours. And I just took these out. They look so yummy. Ok, so you're gonna set this aside, and now you're gonna take your vanilla cake. I just cut it into sections to show you how to crumb. This is basically how to make a cake ball, or cake pop, same idea. So you just take two sections of it, and rub it together over a big bowl.
Usually when you make cake pops, you use frosting. You do one cake to one little tub of frosting as a ratio. But these are gonna be so good, the creme brulee cake balls. You're gonna take one cake to the one recipe of creme brulee. So you're just gonna take this, and scoop it all into the bowl with the cake crumbs. Oh my gosh, this smells so good.
Once set all mix together, you're gonna take a baking sheet like so, and put a piece of wax paper on the top. And you're gonna get your hands in there. So you're gonna roll them about the size of a golf ball. They don't have to be a perfect circle, because we're gonna stick them in the freezer, and they start to harden. And then you can re-roll them to be the perfect circle. So right now, just try to get size right. Once you've got all of your little cake balls on the tray, you're gonna put these in the freezer for about two hours.
Those are my fighting scene.
I made a bunch more of these little cake balls. I just took them out of the freezer. I just wanted to show you how round they can get. So I took them out when they are still cold, re-roll them. So it's more of a perfect circle, just like that. So what we're gonna do now is take lollipop sticks. And on the bottom, which is a little bit flat because they've been sitting on the sheet. You're just gonna push the lollipop stick in, and then stick them into the Styrofoam. I finish putting all the cake balls on the little lollipop sticks. I just make a bunch of them. I made a lot of extra, just in case I mess up some.
And now, we're going to make our sugar dip. Take two-thirds cup of water, two-thirds cup of light corn syrup, and three cups of sugar. Once you've got all the ingredients in the pot, now place it on the burner, turn it to a medium-high heat. And then begin to stir until all the sugar is dissolved. Once it's dissolved, you're gonna leave them on the heat for ten minutes. You'll know when it's ready when it starts to look golden brown. Get a large bowl filled with ice water, and then remove your sugar bowl from the heat, and submerge it into the bowl. Wait until the sugar stops boiling, and then take your cake pop, and dip it in.
Once you're done dipping your cake balls, this is what they look like. I put seven of them here. I have an extra. This is one of the extras because I want to show you how to remove the lollipop stick. It's pretty easy. It's pretty durable. So you're just gonna take your fingers, and just twist the lollipop stick. It'll loosen it.
And now, we're gonna do the final step, and decorate these to look like dragon balls. Now you're gonna use these star sprinkles. I found this pack, again, just to remind everyone, from Target. But they have them everywhere, grocery stores, Michaels, bakery stores, so I just want you to see what I got, so that would be hopefully helpful. And I poured them out, and I separated a bunch of red ones. So you're gonna want the red stars.
And then for each dragon ball, if you've never seen the show, you're gonna put one star, two stars, three stars, four, five stars, six stars, seven stars!
We did it. Here are our Dragon Ball Z creme brulee cake balls. They're so cute. We have all of the little red stars sprinkles on there. They turned out so good!
Oh my god, we did it! We collected all of the dragon balls. I can summon the dragon and make a wish now. I got my wish.
These are delicious. I've never made creme brulee on Nerdy Nummies before, so this was really fun. So thank you guys for suggesting this. If you have any other ideas for any other Nerdy Nummies, please let me know. Leave me a comment down below, and I will do my best to make it happen. Ok, thanks, you guys. Bye bye!
That was Dragon Ball Z moves.
And you're gonna roll them about the size of tennis balls. Oh! Oh my god, yeah. A golf ball...yeah...that's...holy moly. It will be like a huge cake ball.
