Today, crazy chef Stefan Gates takes the ingredients of a kuch

:00:15.:00:20.

cake to a whole new level. -- cup cake to a whole new level. Sure you

:00:20.:00:30.
:00:30.:00:46.

are ready for this?! It's going to Hello. Hello. As you can see,

:00:46.:00:51.

Barney is poised at this piano and he's going to be playing live for

:00:51.:00:55.

us. Don't worry, he has something much better up his sleeve than that

:00:55.:00:59.

which is seriously impressive. He's going to accompany a Britain's Got

:00:59.:01:04.

Talent star who's 13 and today he releases his first album. It's

:01:04.:01:14.
:01:14.:01:23.

Ronan Parke. We danced there, we can't help it,

:01:23.:01:27.

we're excited. Make some noise for Ronan Parke.

:01:27.:01:33.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Hello. Hi. Ronan! Welcome to the

:01:33.:01:37.

show. Thank you. Because it's your first time, before we get started,

:01:37.:01:43.

I have something to give to you. It's a Blue Peter badge. Argh.

:01:43.:01:48.

whiting is that? Shall I put it on for you? Yes. Tell us how it's been

:01:48.:01:52.

for you, one minute you are in a talent show, the next you are on

:01:52.:01:56.

Blue Peter, talk to us? It's been crazy but I'm having so much fun.

:01:56.:01:59.

Recording material, you are going on TV, do you still go to school?

:01:59.:02:05.

Yes, I still go to school quite a lot but when I'm away I have a

:02:05.:02:11.

tutor but it's harm term now so it's OK. Firework on your album,

:02:11.:02:15.

Edge of Glory, Lady Gaga, did you have a say on what was going to be

:02:15.:02:21.

on there? Yes, a lot of say, all of them are songs I like, so I hope

:02:21.:02:26.

people like it. I have to say, I love the song that you two will be

:02:26.:02:29.

performing for us later on. You've never performed together, in fact

:02:29.:02:34.

you've only just met a few hours ago. We are doing it live. How are

:02:34.:02:39.

you feeling? Nervous but excited. How are you feeling, do you trust

:02:39.:02:44.

him? Yes, yes. For now I want to tell you something, a couple of

:02:44.:02:48.

weeks ago, Stefan Gates was talking to us about this simple cup cake

:02:48.:02:54.

but it's got pink icing on it. You can make it pink by apparently

:02:54.:02:58.

mushing up dead insects and using their blood. He's going to take

:02:58.:03:02.

some more of these ingreedients and show us how explosive they are. You

:03:02.:03:07.

are going to love this. I'm Stefan Gates and if you have seen me on

:03:07.:03:11.

gastro nuts, you will know that I love cooking and am obsessed with

:03:11.:03:15.

the wild side of food, not only how it tastes but experimenting with it

:03:15.:03:21.

and pushing the boundaries of what food can do.

:03:21.:03:26.

And now I'm on a mission to expose the extreme side of one of the most

:03:26.:03:31.

popular baked goods of all, the sweet, humble cup cake.

:03:31.:03:37.

Last time I proved that the first three ingredients of cup cakes can

:03:37.:03:44.

be bizarre. So what goes into this to turn it pink? It's an insect.

:03:44.:03:53.

Unexpectedly strong. The strength is in the shells. Here we go. Oh,

:03:53.:03:58.

my word. And highly reactive. The Lemon juice is reacting with the

:03:58.:04:07.

bicarbonate of soda and releasing carbon dioxide. Now it's time to

:04:07.:04:13.

meet the cup cake bad boys. Icing sugar and flour. Are you sure

:04:13.:04:18.

you're ready for this?! Icing sugar. What does it do? The icing is there

:04:18.:04:22.

to give a lovely extra sweetness on top of the cake and it's made out

:04:22.:04:25.

top of the cake and it's made out of this stuff here, icing sugar.

:04:25.:04:31.

All that icing sugar is is normal sugar grind down into a fine powder.

:04:31.:04:36.

Looks boring, but it's packed full of energy. To show you the energy,

:04:36.:04:46.
:04:46.:04:47.

I'm going to release it by burning I'll put a couple of spoonfuls into

:04:47.:04:54.

this apparatus. And then, I'm going to blow the icing sugar across a

:04:54.:05:04.
:05:04.:05:15.

This fireball is the icing sugar being set on fire by the gas flame.

:05:15.:05:19.

The kind of sugar you put into tea wouldn't do this, icing sugar

:05:20.:05:25.

particles are tiny and powdery, so they burn quickly and violently. A

:05:25.:05:29.

lovely smell of toffee in the air now. All of that flame was all the

:05:29.:05:33.

energy in the icing sugar being released in one go. It's powerful

:05:33.:05:36.

stuff. It's not just icing sugar that

:05:36.:05:42.

reacts like this. Let's go extreme with the last extraordinary cup

:05:42.:05:46.

cake ingredients. It's flour. Looks boring doesn't it? But this stuff

:05:46.:05:52.

is immensely important. Billions of people eat products made with flour

:05:52.:05:57.

every day, it's in bread, cakes and it's thought to be the most ancient

:05:57.:06:01.

baking ingredient of all, first used about 11,000 years ago. But

:06:01.:06:06.

this stuff has one surprising extra element to it.

:06:06.:06:15.

It's highly explosive. Nour on its own like this is

:06:15.:06:19.

completely safe. -- flour. However, when you throw it up into the air,

:06:19.:06:23.

the energy is mixed with the oxygen in the air and all it takes in one

:06:23.:06:28.

spark to release all of the energy very fast and very violently.

:06:28.:06:33.

Inside flour is a nutrient called carbohydrate and that contains the

:06:33.:06:36.

energy released into our bodies when we eat it, or when it's blown

:06:36.:06:40.

up, which is exactly what's about to happen next. Now, I've never Don

:06:40.:06:44.

this before in my life. I've got no idea if it's going to work. But for

:06:44.:06:49.

my final experiment, I'm going to test the true power of flour in its

:06:50.:06:54.

most dangerous state. I've got two massive bags of plain flour, it's

:06:54.:06:58.

exactly the same sort of stuff used to make cup cakes. I'm going to see

:06:58.:07:03.

if we can blow this up. And if the heat of the explosion can be enough

:07:03.:07:11.

to melt some marshmallows and toast some cup cakes. I've recruited

:07:11.:07:15.

special effects designer Mark who's responsible for Big Bangs, dramatic

:07:15.:07:19.

stunts and flashy effects in loads of TV shows. It's a highly skilled

:07:19.:07:24.

job, requiring years of training, so Mark's the perfect man for a

:07:24.:07:29.

dangerous stunt like this. How are we going to go about this? I have a

:07:29.:07:35.

kilo of gunpowder here. We have to be quite quick to lift the flour

:07:35.:07:39.

into a dust suspension, these sparky bits will light the cloud of

:07:39.:07:44.

dust and give us a ball of flame. To work with gunpowder, you need a

:07:44.:07:49.

special licence issued by the police and Mark's got one.

:07:49.:07:52.

dispersing all the particles to the right kind of concentration and

:07:52.:07:55.

hopefully it will be flames going up to ignite it with the air and

:07:55.:08:02.

the oxygen around. Exactly. Sure about this? Yes. What can possibly

:08:02.:08:05.

go wrong?! Purely in the interests of science,

:08:05.:08:10.

I want to see a food that would normally get bake and towed like

:08:10.:08:13.

marshmallows and crumpets will be cooked by the heat of the explosion.

:08:13.:08:18.

And the other stuff? Well, I just fancied blowing them up. Do you

:08:18.:08:22.

reckon these will cook? Marshmallows possibly, I wouldn't

:08:22.:08:28.

count on the baked potato, to be honest. If all goes to plan, the

:08:28.:08:32.

gunpowder will blast into the air and sparks will ignite the flour

:08:32.:08:37.

cloud and make it explode into a lovely orangey fireball, hopefully

:08:37.:08:41.

cooking my food in the process. I'm so excited. It's like I've built

:08:41.:08:46.

the world's most dangerous oven. Everything's in place ready to go.

:08:46.:08:50.

I'm standing way back and my finger's on the detonator button.

:08:50.:09:00.
:09:00.:09:16.

My heart's going quite fast now. OK, The red flame ball is the flour

:09:16.:09:19.

combusting at a super high speed. Now, the same energy release

:09:19.:09:23.

happens inside your body when you eat flour, but luckily it happens

:09:23.:09:33.

much more slowly inside you. That was enormous! This is carnage.

:09:33.:09:39.

Bits of stuff everywhere. There's a strong smell of burnt flour, I

:09:39.:09:48.

suppose. Did anything survive? The potato mad it all the way over here.

:09:48.:09:54.

It's kind of turned into tar. It has actually toasted my cup cake.

:09:54.:10:04.
:10:04.:10:06.

Whether it's made it any better or not is another matter. Ah. Oh, look,

:10:06.:10:11.

that's actually a bit of obliterated marshmallow.

:10:11.:10:17.

Made it go very, very gooey. Look, here is another whole marshmallow.

:10:17.:10:23.

I would eat it, but it's covered in gunpowder. It's kind of intact

:10:23.:10:27.

though. I think that flew, rather than toasted.

:10:27.:10:33.

So there you go, five every day ingredients that turn out to be

:10:33.:10:37.

extraordinary. Pink icing made from crushed up

:10:37.:10:41.

insects, superbly structured eggs, strong enough to take my weight and

:10:41.:10:51.
:10:51.:10:53.

more, bicarbonate of soda which reacts strangely with Lemon juice,

:10:53.:11:00.

icing sugar, sweet but deadly and plain old flour, essential for

:11:00.:11:10.
:11:10.:11:10.

making cakes but has the explosive power of a bomb. All packed inside

:11:10.:11:14.

your sweet little cup cake. I don't know about you, but that's

:11:14.:11:19.

really made me want a toasted marshmallow. They were a bit more

:11:19.:11:23.

crispy than I'm used to. He looks mad but Stefan is a trained

:11:23.:11:25.

professional and takes every precaution to make sure everything

:11:25.:11:30.

he does is safe. Don't try that at home. He's mad in a good way. The

:11:30.:11:34.

reason he's been playing with the ingredients is that we are hoping

:11:34.:11:40.

to get you into the kitchen and hold bake sales. You have been out

:11:40.:11:43.

there holding your own sales and raising money for Children In Need.

:11:43.:11:46.

It's been happening for so long, we thought we'd show you one of the

:11:46.:11:50.

many bake sales that's been taking place.

:11:50.:11:54.

All across the country, lots of you have been getting involved with our

:11:54.:11:57.

Bake A Difference appeal. We are in Loughborough to check in on this

:11:57.:12:03.

school to see how they're getting on. We managed to sell cakes for

:12:03.:12:09.

Children In Need. And we are going to raise a lot of money. I think

:12:09.:12:16.

making cakes is a brilliant idea because everyone loves cakes.

:12:16.:12:19.

cake you sell makes a difference. With the money collected, we are

:12:19.:12:24.

going to help provide funds for children living with chronic or

:12:24.:12:28.

life-limiting ill nns the UK. To find out more about getting

:12:28.:12:32.

involved with the appeal, head to the Blue Peter website for more

:12:56.:13:02.

great. After a hard morning's work, they sold a whopping 50 cakes. I

:13:02.:13:09.

think that deserves a cheer. It really does. Thank you so much

:13:09.:13:12.

to everybody getting involved with the appeal this year, you are

:13:12.:13:15.

:13:18.:13:21.

are thinking about having a bake sale, get cracking. Lots of you

:13:21.:13:28.

have been getting involved including Ella and Thiana. They did

:13:28.:13:34.

a sale and raised �83 selling over 200 items. Thank you, ladies.

:13:34.:13:39.

Connie and Jack held a sale outside their house with the amazing help

:13:39.:13:44.

of their friends and sold at least 50 fairy cakes, five big cakes,

:13:44.:13:47.

flap jacks and banana bread and lots more. The neighbours were

:13:47.:13:52.

great and donated cakes and together they raised a whopping

:13:52.:13:57.

�110 in just two hours. Amazing. appreciate your efforts and are

:13:58.:14:03.

trying to give you a mention. Look out for some of your names and some

:14:03.:14:10.

of your pledges are scrolling across the screen now. These kids

:14:10.:14:15.

in Barnet baked cakes and raised some money. They enjoyed raising it

:14:15.:14:23.

:14:32.:14:36.

o'clock, had loads of people calling in. She had a spotty table

:15:44.:15:50.

let's see what else is coming up in this series of Blue Peter.

:15:50.:15:56.

I'll be having a jiling and finding out why laughter rally is the best

:15:56.:16:03.

medicine -- jiggle. The stars of Young Dracula will be making

:16:03.:16:10.

gruesome goodies for Halloween. the wonderfully talented Pixie Lott

:16:10.:16:14.

will be here in the studio. So much to look forward to, so don't move

:16:14.:16:23.

your bums from those seats. like Pixie don't you? Great voice,

:16:23.:16:26.

great songs. You are chomping at the bit to speak to him and he's

:16:26.:16:31.

right here, it's Ronan Parke. How you doing? Good, thank you. We've

:16:31.:16:35.

loads of keen callers wanting to speak to you. Ready to answer some

:16:35.:16:40.

questions? Yes. Before we do that, I have to ask because lods of

:16:40.:16:46.

people have been asking, who do you think is going to win X Factor?

:16:46.:16:52.

have a favourite and I think she will win, it's Mica B. What is it

:16:52.:16:55.

like being in one of those competitions because everyone's

:16:55.:16:58.

watching and analysing everything you do? It's really nerve-racking

:16:58.:17:02.

but I guess because I have such a passion for music and singing, I

:17:02.:17:06.

just love doing it and wanted to do it more and more so...

:17:06.:17:10.

Let es get stuck into the calls because they are ready and waiting.

:17:10.:17:17.

Jake, are you there? Yes. Hi, Jake, that's got to be the girliest

:17:17.:17:26.

scream I have ever heard. Can I please just say happy birthday to

:17:27.:17:35.

my friend Poppy? You just did. Happy birthday, Poppy. What is your

:17:35.:17:42.

question, Jake? Hello. What is it like being on stage and like, do

:17:42.:17:47.

you get nervous in front of the cameras? It's great being on screen,

:17:47.:17:52.

it's all different to normal and it's just a great experience, but

:17:52.:17:56.

yes I do get really scared and nervous before I go on, but when I

:17:56.:18:00.

start singing it just really goes away really. Do you have any

:18:00.:18:04.

techniques to get rid of your nerves? It's just as soon as I get

:18:04.:18:08.

on and the crowd's reaction, it goes away really. Thank you very

:18:08.:18:18.
:18:18.:18:20.

much for your question, Jake. Easy zi, are you there? -- Issie.

:18:20.:18:25.

Can I just say I'm a huge fan and I'm married to him so, if you could

:18:25.:18:28.

work with any celebrity who would it be and what style of song would

:18:28.:18:32.

you like to do with them? favourite artist is Lady Gaga, so

:18:32.:18:37.

it would probably be her and one of her songs is on my album and it's

:18:37.:18:42.

Edge of Glory so I think I would like to do that with her as a duet.

:18:42.:18:48.

A proper stomping anthem that one, isn't it, a great tune. Thank you

:18:48.:18:55.

Issie. Hi, Nadia, are you there? everyone. What is your question?

:18:56.:19:00.

question to Ronan is, what job do you see yourself doing in the next

:19:00.:19:05.

ten to 15 years? Well, when I really wanted to do singing, I

:19:05.:19:10.

thought I was going to be too nervous and I wouldn't be able to

:19:10.:19:13.

do it so I thought of a back up plan and thought that I would be a

:19:13.:19:16.

policeman. Loosely related, I suppose. You could sing people's

:19:16.:19:24.

fines to them. That would work! Nice! Amber, are you there? Yes.

:19:24.:19:34.
:19:34.:19:35.

Amber, what is your question? PROBLEM WITH SOUND

:19:35.:19:39.

Are you near a TV with your phone, trouble with the sound there. Can

:19:39.:19:45.

you hear us? Yes. What is your question? Will being in the

:19:45.:19:49.

competition enable you to fulfil any of your other dreams? I've

:19:49.:19:53.

always wanted to do singing. Yeah, it's just I think being on stage

:19:53.:19:59.

and singing in front of lots and lots of people and I've experienced

:19:59.:20:05.

so many amazing things really, so yes. Nice question. Good answer.

:20:05.:20:08.

Thank you very much. We've had loads of you in touch.

:20:08.:20:12.

Thank you to everybody who got in touch. Now, I have to say, I'm

:20:12.:20:17.

excited about your performance. How are you feeling? Nervous but

:20:17.:20:23.

excited. That's all he ever says. That's what you are supposed to say.

:20:24.:20:28.

Over to your piano and microphone. On tomorrow's Blue Peter, you can

:20:28.:20:33.

find out how I got on when I went to Chester Zoo to feed the animals.

:20:33.:20:37.

They're cute, but very, very fussy creatures. And, if you are planning

:20:37.:20:43.

a Halloween party, then don't miss tomorrow's shows. We have got a

:20:43.:20:46.

make-up artist with some fantastic top tips. She's going to teach you

:20:46.:20:51.

how to make bruises, scratches, you name it, we've got it. But right

:20:51.:20:55.

now, we have an exclusive performance for you, performing

:20:55.:21:01.

live, two fantastic talents, very proud of them, it's Barney Howard

:21:01.:21:11.

I think of you # And I wonder if you ever think of

:22:40.:22:46.

# Cos everything's so wrong and I don't belong

:22:46.:22:54.

# Living in your precious memory # And I need you

:22:54.:22:58.

# And I miss you # And now I wonder

:22:58.:23:04.

# If I could fall into the sky # Do you think time would pass me

:23:04.:23:11.

# Cos you know I'd walk A Thousand Miles

:23:11.:23:21.
:23:21.:23:31.

# If I could just see you tonight # If I could just hold you

:23:31.:23:41.
:23:41.:23:45.

# Tonight... APPLAUSE

:23:45.:23:52.

Amazing! Amazing! Ronan Parke. Congratulations.
