Hey everybody, thanks so much for
checking out my channel! I am Emily, hello hello. Today, I’m gonna be cooking you
– well, me – a ketchup cake. I’m gonna be making a cake that has ketchup in it. I
found this it’s called Heinz Great Canadian Ketchup
Cake. It is a recipe that is widely available on the internet and I’m gonna
give it a shot and see how it turns out. I love ketchup. I love cake. So what if,
together, they make magic? It’s a possibility. It’s also a possibility that
this is gonna be absolutely disgusting. So come along, friends, on this journey
with me toward a cake that has ketchup in it. I don’t do a lot of cake baking so
this is sort of a double experiment but when I saw that there was a ketchup cake
I thought, why not? And, there we go. Ah, cool, alright. The next thing we’re doing is just combining
some of our dry ingredients so I have flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon,
nutmeg, and ginger and I’m just going to pour these together in a bowl pretty
easy okay that looks combined all right there we go. Alright, I’m going to stick
that to the side and I’m now going to be mixing some wet ingredients
together. Now, this is really the piece de resistance but this recipe calls for
half a cup of water, half a cup of ketchup- yeah. Wait. Good. And a bit of red
food coloring just to make it extra ketchup-y in its essence, I guess. Oh, it
is very red. Alright, I’m gonna move this also to the side. Oh-ho-ho boy. It smells
like ketchup. Our next thing is combining butter, sugar, and eggs, so I have
three quarters of a cup of butter. La-dee-da. There we go. I’m so, like, I
hate getting my fingers bleh. So, like I said I’m just creaming together butter
and sugar so I’m gonna go my electric beater which I have over here. Here we go. oh it’s flying everywhere ahh, alright, I’m gonna use my spatula
just to try and combine these a little bit better. This is better. I’m gonna give
it another go around with the beaters in a second, I just wanted to get it more
combined because it was just sort of clumping up. Okay, there we go, going in
again yeah, that’s what I’m talkin’ about! Alright, that is looking good. Butter
and sugar are combined and now I’m going to crack a couple of eggs into here
carefully. There’s one. And, hoo-hoo-hoo-whoo-hoo–hoo. Egg number two just putting some eggs into my mixture
and then I’m gonna beat this up. Beat it up. Great. Cool cool cool cool cool. how are you today? so this is looking great.
I’m going to go ahead and add in my flour and my ketchup mixtures from
earlier. I can’t believe I’m making a ketchup cake, alright, here we go, I’m just
gonna do this in phases. So I’m gonna do like, part of this and a little bit of
this and just see how it’s all looking oh, bleh… uh, this is gonna turn out great, so. I’m just gonna- ooh-hoo-hoo. Okay, so, as you can see, this is looking
very festive. Here we go. I’m adding in some more of this and some more of this-
oh, I don’t know if you can see that. I’m gonna do that again just so you can see
it. Nice, right? Alright. Okay, going in. I’m tilting it for your
enjoyment. As I’m doing this, I am wondering if this is like an unsafe
quantity of food coloring that goes into this, but I followed the recipe so… I mean…
I’m sure it’s fine. Alright, I’m just adding the end of that. Lovely. Uh, and
then I’m gonna combine these and then we got ourselves a cake batter. So. I’m gonna
scrape down the sides. It is like a massacre in here! It looks like play-doh,
sort of. It’s legitimately the same color as the spatula. Incredible. It smells nice,
though. I mean, it smells like gingerbread sort of because of all the spices in
there. You don’t really smell the ketchup you do a little bit, I’m not gonna lie to
you. Alright I’d say that’s done. We’re gonna move on
to the next step whoo-hoo, hello. We’re gonna move on to
the next step which is pouring this into my pants. So I’m gonna do that. I’m using myself as a human shield. …That’s not right. You know, I actually- for all that I’ve
joked around about it, it does smell like a cake. Like, it smells pretty good. I am
intrigued to see how it turns out ultimately, cuz if it’s good, what a coup!
Probably a real baker would, like, weigh these? I don’t know. I guess this will
probably rise since it has both baking soda and baking powder in it, which
would explain why it’s not very tall right now. My finest work. And doing the
same thing on this side with this guy Alright, so, broadly speaking, these look
like the start of a cake. Um, we’ll see, we’ll see.
Okay I’m gonna pop them in the oven now uh, and then we wait. (Frankenstein scream) Alright, I’m going to
put a timer on. It’s supposed to be half an hour, but I forgot to do it, so I’m
gonna say 25 minutes. Don’t do this at home. Actually, it’s good, it tastes fine.
It doesn’t taste like ketchup or anything, it just tastes like
ginger cake. Hmm. Good to know. Oh, there is a little bit of an after-tang.
There’s an after-tang… but that could be okay. Alright, well, we’ll see. Alright, so, while the cake bakes-
while the cake bakes, I’m gonna make some cream
cheese icing. Mmm. So for that what I have is… butter. Dah-dee-da-dee-da. There we go. And then I have most of a thing of cream cheese. This should also have
vanilla in it but I forgot to get it so whatever. I’m just gonna pour some of my icing
sugar into my butter and cream cheese mixture. I’m a little concerned that this
bowl- oh-ho-ho-ho, that I didn’t mean to do.
That this bowl might be a little bit small for what I’m attempting right now
but we’re gonna find out the hard and the fun way which is where I just mix it Alright, I’m gonna switch over to my beaters. (groaning under the strain of mixing) y’all ready for this Alright, it’s starting to actually look like icing.
Alright, here we go. Icing sugar into the icing mixture, we’re just
gonna dump ‘er all in. Why not? Out damn spot! Alright, okay, look at this. This is beautiful.
Stay. That’s icing! That’s what icing looks
like! And that’s the frosting made. So now I’m gonna wait for my cake to bake, we’ve
got a few more minutes, and then I’ll give her a frost. Well, first I’ll let it
cool and then I’ll frost it. Same thing. I put my thumb in it by accident just a little
bit. Oh no! Oh baby, I’m so sorry. Oops. I’m just gonna let those cool for a few minutes.
The cake definitely seems to have taken on the shape of the wax paper, so maybe skip
that step. How am I gonna get this out? I might flip it. I might try the flip.
The flip. Oh, I’m supporting it. I’m supporting it like it’s like a baby’s bottom, like that’s how it feels, I feel like I’m-
okay. I’ve got my cream cheese icing and a spatula and I’m just gonna go ahead and
ice this puppy. Maybe I’ll try to ice over these wax paper crevasses. Alright. (a la “Babe”, the pig in the city)
That’ll do. That works, that works, that’s icing, that’ll go in the middle. Are these
still a little too warm? I don’t know. I don’t know if I want to stack them yet.
Uuggghhh, baking is hard. How cold does a cake need to be, really? I’m sure it’s fine. I’m sure it’s fine. Alright. Yeah. Ahhh, alright. More icing, more icing, more…
cheese cheese cheese cheese cheese cheese! It does kind of look like
a hamburger now, doesn’t it? Or like, um, a mistake? Oh, luscious. Um, if you’re a baker and
you have tips for what I’m doing wrong write to me. Comment on this video. And if
you’re enjoying this, don’t forget to like and subscribe.
Oh, this is not how professionals cook. Everything’s going great.
Maybe I should use like a butter knife or something? I don’t really know what
people use to ice. I should learn. Maybe before making a YouTube video. Too late, baby! Alright, I think I’m gonna call it there. Is it conventionally attractive? Yes. Is it unusually attractive? Also yes. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you
a ketchup cake. (weirdly sexy music plays) Ooh, yeah that’s sort of what a cake looks like. Cool, alright,
let’s taste it. Knife, my murder knife and I’m just going to cut a slice and see
what’s inside oh my god it’s blood and guts! ehhhh??? there’s something weird about it like there’s – it’s not bad there’s, no real-
like, you don’t get a ketchup flavor out of it, if I’m being honest, but you can
tell that something is amiss. it’s like it sticks to the mouth a little, like
it feels like it’s dry but it isn’t dry, like texturally, you know what I mean? I guess what I’m
saying is, not horrible. Um, tastes like a… it tastes like a very mild ginger cake.
It tastes like, what ginger bread like, gingerbread cake, you know, the cake, the
ginger cake? It tastes like that, but like with just a little bit less of all the
things that go into that and then bright red. So, I think… you could make this and
trick your friends into eating it um and they probably would never know. I guess
if I were to do anything differently here, one, I would figure out the process
of taking care of a cake once it’s been made. By which I mean, like, what happens-
So the, so your cake is baked. You want to remove it from the pan. What’s next?
I don’t know. That’s it, everything else was perfect,
I did a great job. And I think that’s that.
This is, uh, this is my beautiful, stunning, perfect ketchup cake. This is it. It’s like… fine. You know? It’s like, totally…
