    Welcome to HowToCookThat I'm Ann
    Reardon and today I have with me James
    from TheOdd1sOut ... Hello. And if you
    haven't seen his channel he does amazing
    animation, some of which are about when
    he used to work at a fast food joint called ...
    'Sooubway'. So obviously if you go
    there and you order something you get to
    choose what's inside I am going to make
    a cake but I'm going to make it to the
    custom order of what you would like
    inside. So if you could have anything,
    did you ever get to make your own?
    Oh yeah yeah we got a free six inch
    every time we worked there. There you go so
    what would be your favorite things?
    Start with the roll, talk us through.
    Well alright how complicated can I make it?
    As complicated as you like. I want it to be
    a foot long. Okay, foot long.
    Wait, that would be like a half a meter long.
    See the thing is, Australians do understand American feet and inches.
    It's just the other way around
    Americans don't get Australian. Okay so a foot long
    on white and my favourite sandwich
    is a turkey Italiano so it's
    salami and pepperoni and instead of
    putting ham out on the sandwich you put
    turkey on it. Turkey yes, do you have any
    sauces in it? Yes mayonnaise and mustard
    and then oil vinegar and salt and pepper.
    What salad would you choose?
    This is where we get complicated, for veggies basically
    lettuce tomato cucumbers olives.
    That's easy so far. Oh and I forgot the cheese
    - I like American cheese and not toasted.
    No is it toasted trying to remember? It's
    been so long. Let's do not toasted, it will look nicer as a cake.
    Yeah you're right that would be weird.
    How would you toast a cake?
    You'd have to make it look like it was
    but it would look nicer fresh I
    am envisaging it looking fresh.
    I'm imagining it as like a cold sandwich
    you take on the go.
    You know like you go on a fishing trip
    and you bring the sandwich.
    So lettuce tomato olives cucumber a little
    bit of jalapenos to give it that spice.
    Whenever I asked for jalapenos there was
    just like you want to give a mound of
    jalapenos but just like like for a
    footlong I guess maybe like
    one for each bites would be like eight
    jalapenos. This is very specific!
    That is probably too low
    I'm probably low balling maybe
    twelve I don't know. Perfect we've got
    the order now I've got to make the cake.
    Sorry for making so many ingredients.
    It's your order. Step one I decided to go to
    Subway and buy James's exact order yes
    I took a list with me so I could see
    what it was supposed to look like. We've
    got the white roll and you can't even
    see any turkey I assume there is turkey
    in there because I had to pay extra to
    get turkey instead of ham ...
    there is Turkey there's just not much. I
    was expecting it to be more like this
    with lots of Turkey as advertised 😉
    But anyway we've got the olives the
    cucumber tomato mayonnaise jalapenos and
    heaps of pepper it's just piled on top
    there. I think we'll use this is a bit of
    a guide but make it look a bit nicer
    looking like they do in the adverts
    rather than making it look like a squashed
    down roll where you can't see half the
    ingredients. Let's start with the salami
    it's got lots of little bits in it and
    as much as possible I don't want to use
    fondant for the fillings some of them
    will have to because they've got lots of
    detail but this one I think we can get
    away with. Chop some nuts I'm using a
    mixture of walnuts and almonds you can
    use whatever ones you like. As well as
    the nuts will need white chocolate and
    butter and all the recipe quantities for
    these are listed on the website for you and
    I'll link to that below of course. Add
    the butter to the chocolate and melt
    that in the microwave. Stir it well to
    combine using a whisk works well for
    that and then add in some food colouring.
    I'm using a little bit of blue and some
    red to get that deep salami colour once
    you're happy that it looks like the
    right colour you can go ahead and add in
    the nuts and stir them through. Pour that
    mixture onto some plastic wrap and fold
    it over
    on one side seal it then fold the other
    bit over. Hold it at both ends and spin
    it to make a roll of mixture you'll need
    to place that in the fridge for several
    hours or I put mine in the freezer to
    make it set quicker. The pepperoni is a
    brighter orange red color and to make
    that I'm going to use marshmallows white
    chocolate and then a mixture of chopped
    nuts and dried apricots. You need to chop
    the apricots really fine so that we
    don't have big chunks of orange in the
    pepperoni. You can do that by hand or if
    you have a mincing attachment to your
    mixer you can try that I think by hand
    was much more effective at getting
    little tiny chunks ... if you do it in the
    mincer then you're going to need to chop
    it with the nuts anyway afterwards to
    break it into little pieces. Put the
    chocolate in with the marshmallows and
    melt that in the microwave and then stir
    in some food coloring until you get that
    right pepperoni colour. Then add in the
    nuts and the apricots and stir that all
    through quickly before the marshmallows
    start to set. Wrap it up just like we did
    for the salami and place that in the
    freezer for a few hours to firm up.
    Moving on next we need to make triangles
    of cheese ... grab some banana lollies (candy) and
    melt them in the microwave with a tiny
    bit of water and pour that mixture onto
    some baking paper. Add another sheet of
    baking paper over the top and roll it
    out using a rolling pin to about the
    thickness of your cheese. Once it's
    starting to cool cut it into triangles
    and then you want to put that into an
    airtight container in the fridge to set.
    For the lettuce we need some fine green
    bits but again I don't want to use
    fondant for this ...
    so take some compound white chocolate
    melt it and color it green using some
    oil based food coloring and then spread
    that between two sheets of baking paper
    until it's really thin. Push it out at
    the edges to make it way beyond the
    edges instead of straight and then all
    you need to do is rip the top piece of
    baking paper off so you get two
    sheets of really thin chocolate. Scrunch
    up each one on the edges so that your
    lettuce is all crinkled and it's not
    flat and then you just put that in the
    fridge to set this is probably the
    easiest bit you need to make. Once it's
    set just peel it off the paper to get
    strips of lettuce ... that looks pretty cool
    hey. For the sauces let's make a white
    chocolate ganache which is just cream
    and chocolate melted together and
    stirred well. We're going to split that
    into two bowls and for the mustard I'm
    gonna add a little bit of brown, it
    wasn't yellow which I thought it would
    be, but at the store it was browny and
    then add some white food coloring to the
    one that we're making look like
    mayonnaise. For pepper I'm just gonna
    finely grate some really dark chocolate
    this is 90% cocoa so it's really dark
    and for salt I'll just use some sugar of
    course. When the tomatoes are in the roll
    we can only see just the very edges of
    them so we don't need to do all the
    details of the middle. I'm just going to
    melt some red lollies (candy) in the microwave
    and add a bit of white and yellow
    colouring to get that tomato colour right
    and then pour that into some greased
    circle cutters and let it set. You can
    see a bit more of the cucumber so we're
    going to have to put some detail into
    that so I'm going to make these ones out
    of fondant. Roll a snake of pale green
    then flatten it on one edge so that it
    looks like a teardrop shape. Cut that
    into three parts and wrap it in some
    deeper green just adding each of your
    three bits there so that it's all in one
    bit then wrap that in lighter green. Trim
    the ends and again cut it into thirds
    and then put those three pieces together
    and we want to rearrange that and shape
    it so that we have a rough circle shape
    there. Round it out and add any spare of
    your light green around the outside of
    that and then wrap that whole thing in
    the other green color that you have and
    then finally wrap the dark green
    cucumber skin colour of
    the outside. Put that in the fridge to
    firm up before you cut it and then slice
    it so you get slices of a cucumber with
    that pattern through it. Take a straw and
    squash one side of it to make a teardrop
    shape and then use that to indent around
    the paler areas so that it looks like
    seeds. For the turkey tip some white
    chocolate coloured with oil based food
    colouring onto a piece of bench top
    that's been in the freezer ... you can use
    marble stone or Corian for this but it
    does need to be in the freezer overnight
    so it's really cold ⛄️
    Spread out the chocolate then cut an
    oval of turkey meat. Loosen it from the
    base and I'm gonna cut mine in half the
    flat side can go towards the back of the
    roll and I'm just focusing on what the
    front side looks like. Lift up some areas
    off the edges so that it's not
    completely flat and it has a bit of a
    wrinkle to it. Now take some cocoa powder
    and using your finger rub it along the
    edges so it looks like sliced turkey ... be
    careful just trying to get it right on
    the edge and not on the top of your
    chocolate. Can you believe that this is
    white chocolate it actually looks like
    sliced turkey but it's white chocolate!
    For the olives roll out some grey
    fondant and cut small circles using a
    tiny cookie cutter and then out of the
    middle use a straw to cut out another
    circle. Paint around the edges carefully
    using black gel food colouring, if you get
    any on the top you can just wash that
    off using a wet bit of paper towel but
    try and get it just on the edges. Then
    give each one a few indents and bumps in
    the middle they can get a bit uneven
    from being pitted. For the jalapenos wrap
    some light green fondant in deeper green
    and slice off some pieces about the
    thickness that you want the jalapeno
    slices to be. Now James wanted 8 or maybe
    more jalapenos so we need to keep
    slicing and make plenty of those. Cut a
    straw so you have about a third of it
    left and push it in at the
    edge of the lighter green and you'll
    need three cuts like that. Then take a
    skewer, put it into the cut and drag it
    down towards the center of the jalapeno
    and again do that in each of your cuts.
    Then add some tiny balls of that light
    green on top for the seeds. Grab your
    salami roll out of the freezer and wrap
    it and slice it and you can see all
    those little pieces inside look just
    like we wanted it to. Do the same with
    the pepperoni now because this one has your
    marshmallows in it if it squashes a
    little bit when you're slicing it you'll
    just need to reshape it using your
    fingers so that you get a circle again.
    It's quite hard to cut this one thin so
    if you want thinner slices place it
    between two sheets of baking paper and
    roll it out flat and then just remove
    the baking paper. Now for the bread ...
    finally we're up to the cake part of the
    cake. So for this you're going to need to
    make a tray of my vanilla cake now
    you only need one tray per foot long
    sub that you want to make. Each footlong
    sub cake will serve 12 people so if you
    want to serve more than that just make
    more than one tray and more than one
    cake. Once it's baked trim the edges and
    measure out a piece of cake that's eight
    centimeters or three and a bit inches by
    thirty centimeters or a foot long. Round
    out your corners and then do that again
    so you have another one the same shape
    and keep that end strip because you're
    going to need that piece. Trim the
    underneath edge off one of your pieces
    and cover that in buttercream then
    transfer it to a cake board covered in a
    subway paper. I asked the lady who served
    me for an extra piece of paper and she
    gave me one so hopefully whoever serves
    you is helpful too. Cover that in fondant
    and smooth it out and around the cake
    use your little finger just to push it
    in around the base. Then cut off the
    extra fondant leaving a little bit more
    than you think you need and then just
    tuck that extra in using a spatula. If
    you don't have a spatula you could just
    use a knife for that instead. Use some
    cocao powder to brush along the outside of
    the roll so you get a bit of variation
    in the colour there and then take your
    other piece of cake and cover the top of
    it in buttercream and then add that
    extra strip that we kept before and put
    it on top. Carve your cake down on an
    angle and down around sloping at the
    edges making it the shape of the top of
    a bun rounding out the corners there.
    Then of course you want to cover that
    whole thing in buttercream. Once you've
    roughly got it covered use a piece of
    acetate just to smooth it out so that
    it's nice and smooth. Cover the top in
    fondant and use your hands to smooth
    around it and make the fondant hug onto
    the cake then trim off the excess and
    tuck it in just like we did before when
    we were doing the other half of the roll.
    Brush the top of that in cocoa powder so
    it looks like it's been baked and then
    add a few little creases
    into the fondant using the back of your
    knife so that it's not perfect if it's
    too perfect it doesn't look like it's a
    bread roll. Now let's assemble our subway cake.
    This Is It this is when the
    sandwich gets put together and I'm
    hoping that it turns out amazing!
    Start with the chocolate lettuce... now you want
    to place that on the base all over it,
    paying attention to what you can see
    around the edges because that's what
    you're going to see so it doesn't really
    matter what's in the middle so much.
    We want to layer it up because it's
    really fine it will get squashed down by
    the other ingredients so put more than
    you think you need so that once it
    squashes down it looks right. Add the
    lolly snake tomatoes into place and
    then the slices of cucumber all the way
    across. Now add in your olives and of
    course your jalapenos ... how many did James want again?
    We're gonna have to hide some
    of them in there there is just so many
    they're not gonna all be able to be on
    display. Pipe on some mustard and then
    some chocolate ganache mayonnaise.
    Oh I was like, No not mustard!
    But no, it's "mustard"
    And then sprinkle on
    the grated dark chocolate for pepper and
    some sugar for salt. Next add the banana
    lolly cheese. I'm not sure how many
    slices you're supposed to have in a
    subway but mine only came with four
    triangles so that's what I'm putting in.
    Then put the white chocolate turkey on
    top add the candy pepperoni and then the
    salami on top of that. I know they don't
    have this but I'm adding a bit more
    ganache on top at the back just to help
    the lid of the cake stick in place. Then
    add your top piece of cake and give it a
    gentle squash down and tada!
    We've finished ... a Subway sandwich cake made
    to the order of James from TheOdd1sOut.
    And Wow!
    That cake looks so amazing there is so
    much detail on like the cucumbers
    and the olives and the jalapenos ah this is
    so beautiful.
    Let's cut it in half so that you can see what's inside.
    Compare it to a sandwich that I got just now this is a BLT on flatbread...
    and then to frigging this!
    Ah at Sooubway we were called sandwich
    artists ... this is a sandwich masterpiece!
    Thank you so much! This looks so good
    better than anything I could have ever
    created. Oh man just like my mouth is
    watering you know.
