10 Beautiful Rubix Cube Cake Designs by Nastia Zvierieva

People love playing with Rubix Cube Cake and the objective is to solve the cube. There are varieties
of games making use of the same Rubiks cube, such as making multiple cubes and using it as
photo collages. The more interesting are the Rubix cube cake.

Preparing Rubix cube cake was the idea of Nastia Zvierieva. There is no need for a blueprint of
the Rubix cube, but the entire process of making a Rubix cube cake is time consuming. It
requires a lot of patience. There is the need to fill each pixel with a cube picture. The cube is a
popular game that people play. People choose to keep the character on side and the design on one

The Rubix cube cake, the dessert version, is from Creative Crumbs Nashville, specialty bakery
mastermind. It is replicating the puzzle, but the cake appears and tastes pretty sweet. It started
with a half sheet cake to cut into squares and to stack on each other to form a cube. She baked
three square similar cakes and kept it in stacks.

As the cakes were stacked and frost in chocolate frosting as one mega-cake, the cube was coated
with cake spackle, that had a mixture of icing and cake crumbs. It was then covered in black
modeling chocolate. The buttercream and the spackle are firmer so that the shape is in hold. The
modeling of chocolate layer comes with no bumps and is perfect. However, the chocolate
frosting steps takes almost a day.

The squares appearing as cubes have food coloring dyed and rolled out into 45 squares as super-
thin. The measure of the cake needs to be exact with the width and height. It requires dividing
each by three and making each square a bit smaller that other dimension. Above all, sticking the
cubes right on the cake is a tacky job.

Make the marshmallow fondant: Take a large microwave-safe bowl, put the marshmallows and
water. Microwave for 2-3 minutes on medium power, stir every 30 seconds, until the
marshmallows melt. Add e softened butter and stir using a silicone spatula to combine.

Add 5 cups of powdered sugar in a separate large bowl and make a well in the center. Pour the
marshmallow mixture and stir to combine. Grease your hands with nonstick spray and knead the
fondant into a ball. Add powdered sugar if the fondant sticks to your hands.

Grease a work surface clean keeping your hands with more nonstick spray. Turn the fondant onto
the greased surface out. Add some water if it appears dry. Use more nonstick spray and knead for
8-10 minutes, to hold a smooth fondant and to retain its shape.

Divide into 6 even pieces the fondant, spray with nonstick spray, and cover with plastic wrap to
not let it dry. Use the dye of gel food coloring and knead each gel color into the fondant. Leave
remaining pieces white.

Remove from the freezer the cake stacks. Use a sharp knife and a ruler to slice each stack into 9
¾-inch (22 cm) cubes. Return to the marked baking sheet and separate the pieces, then freeze
again for 30 minutes.

Roll one color fondant into a log, cut into 9 equal pieces. Grease the pieces that are not in use
with nonstick spray and cover them with plastic wrap. Sprinkle a piece of fondant with powdered
sugar and roll out a ¼-inch-thick (6 mm) square. Remove the cake cubes from the freezer. Cover
with the rolled out fondant on 5 sides, remove the excess fondant with a knife. Repeat it with
remaining fondant and cake cubes.

mm) apart. Place a chocolate piece squarely on the cubes top. Carefully stack the next 9 cubes on
top of the chocolate. Place another square chocolate on the cubes, slightly askew. Now, stack 9
more cubes on the chocolate. Repeat the same to make another cake.
