Ann Reardon

Edible Bob Ross Painting


3 x my rich chocolate cake recipe baked in four trays 25cm (9.84 inches) x 38cm (14.96 inches).

4 x vanilla buttercream recipe

Orange Simple Syrup
juice of one orange
equal volume of sugar

White Chocolate Ganache
420mL (14.2 fluid ounces) cream
1260g (44.45 ounces) white chocolate (look for chocolate that contains cocoa butter not vegetable fat)

White Fondant
700g (24.69 ounces) white fondant

Food colours (I used artisan) to mix into ganache

Titanium white – lots of white food colouring
Prussian blue – ‘azure blue’ and little ‘pink-alicious’
Dark Sienna – cocoa powder, ‘pink-alicious’ and white
Midnight black – melted dark chocolate plus some ‘midnight black’ and ‘juicy orange’
Cadmium Yellow – ‘sunshine yellow’ and tiny bit melted dark chocolate (actual chocolate not a colour)
Indian yellow – ‘sunshine yellow’ and a tiny bit of ‘juicy orange’
Bright Red – ‘hot rod red’ and some melted dark chocolate
Azure Crimson – ‘pink-alicious’, ‘azure blue’, ‘deep purple’, ‘hot rod red’
Vandyke Brown – cocoa powder

Cake board with two or more support pieces of wood screwed in from the back to support the cake
Foil to cover the board
Easel – optional but looks great to display the cake on, put extra screws in so that it can support a heavy cake
Palette knife

    Ann, you are amazing! Not only do you come up with some great, crazy ideas, but you make it so much fun. I found your YouTube channel only a few weeks ago, but I am HOOKED! I love you, love your family, and totally love your creations (although I think I’ve gained ten pounds just watching, lol)

    How did you make the paint palette, what size is the paint palette and is their a paint palette template to make that.

    • Hi Kevin, I took a piece of wood and sketched a paint palette on it, then used a router to cut around the shape that I drew. I didn’t make template sorry.

    You have inspired me to make a sheet cake and try colored frosting to make something similar. Well done Ann, Bob is smiling down on you I’m sure.

    This makes me so sad that Youtube’s copyright bots got it! Bob Ross was about teaching painting. This seems like it would have been right up his alley!

    I saved the video on my watch list, but saw a copyright claim took it down. I wanted to watch this.

    • I just watched it last week, so it’s back up.
