iKON‘s Chan has never described himself to be a baker but in honor of his YouTube channel reaching its third anniversary, he decided to create an oreo cake. However, things didn’t go exactly as planned.
The first sign of encroaching trouble was Chan confessing that he had no tools to measure out the whipping cream so he’d decided he would do it by sight.
In trying to open the whipping cream, he missed the diagram to cut along.
He then began to make an absolute mess while pouring what may have been 240g of cream into his bowl.
He next added two small lumps of sugar in what can only be assumed as an attempt to balance out his overpour of cream.
Because of this miscalculation, Chan spent an extra couple minutes using his fellow iKON member Song‘s mixer while nothing occurred. (Later in the broadcast he revealed that he may have borrowed the mixer without Song’s knowledge).Fans came to his rescue and informed him that he needed to add more sugar if he wanted it to work. Fans also helped him to learn better methods of mixing including stirring and folding the cream.
After the arduous process of removing oreo cream from 4 (initially 6) packs of oreos, Chan moved on to adding cream cheese to the mix. Again, Chan eyeballed to make sure he had the amount he needed of the cream cheese.
His method of measuring stressed fans a bit with one fan saying he needed a measuring cup to which Chan replied “I can do without it, guys.”
In the end, Chan was able to complete the oreo layers without too much trouble and add the candles to the cake to celebrate.
When he came back after leaving it in the fridge for 2 hours, he even shared that it was truly delicious.
Chan persisted and while it may have stressed fans to watch, we can all learn from what his editors nicknamed his “Quote of the day.” Chan said “Guys, there’s no way of failing this. How can I fail when it’s already a success?”
