Well, Radzi, I'm ready.

6:29:556:29:56

There's a make table here, we're in the studio -

6:29:566:29:58

this must be our make and bake special, eh?

6:29:586:30:00

-Barney...

-Yeah?

-Who's that?

6:30:006:30:02

That's a weird cardboard Radzi. Who's this guy?

6:30:026:30:04

-Erm, guys, hello!

-That's...

6:30:046:30:05

-What? What?

-What are you doing in there? You need to hurry up.

6:30:056:30:08

You're currently inside Emily's make.

6:30:086:30:10

-Well, how do we get out?

-Oh, no.

6:30:106:30:12

I don't know, but you'd better hurry up. We're live soon. Come on!

6:30:126:30:14

-Barn, let's jump...

-Whoa!

-Oh!

6:30:146:30:17

SHE SHOUTS

6:30:276:30:30

CHEERING

6:30:306:30:33

-Hello!

-Hello.

-It's a great shot, camera three. How are you doing?

6:30:336:30:36

-Welcome to Blue Peter.

-I like when you're tiny little men.

6:30:366:30:39

-Do you?

-Yeah!

6:30:396:30:40

OK.

6:30:406:30:42

So, yeah... Hi, how are you?

6:30:426:30:43

It's a live show, as you can tell already. It's already on its way.

6:30:436:30:46

We want to say thank you to Emily,

6:30:466:30:48

-who is this lovely person with the thumbs up.

-Aw!

-Aw!

6:30:486:30:50

Emily designed the set that we were stood in a minute ago.

6:30:506:30:53

Emily, it's amazing, thank you so much.

6:30:536:30:56

Now, someone else is getting creative.

6:30:566:30:58

-Have a look at this lovely person.

-Yeah.

6:30:586:31:00

Hi, I'm Millie and I love making things.

6:31:006:31:04

I've even made this massive Blue Peter badge out of pom-poms.

6:31:046:31:09

It has 100 million pom-poms on it and it took me two days to make.

6:31:096:31:15

-Two days, great effort, Millie.

-That's a good effort.

6:31:156:31:17

Now, here's Freddie.

6:31:176:31:19

Hi, my name's Freddie. I can't have dairy so I make my own treats.

6:31:196:31:23

They are some delicious dairy-free cakes.

6:31:236:31:26

That was beautifully shot as well. We like that a lot.

6:31:286:31:31

As well as that, we're joined in the studio

6:31:316:31:33

by the wonderful artist Jon Burgerman.

6:31:336:31:35

He's here to make some lovely egg splats. There's one there.

6:31:356:31:38

They're a great Easter prank!

6:31:386:31:40

Later, I'll be testing my cake-decorating skills

6:31:426:31:44

in a cake-decorating competition. Watch that, it's going to be good.

6:31:446:31:48

But, of course, today's show is so creative,

6:31:486:31:50

so we want to hear from you. It's live.

6:31:506:31:52

We want to know if we could make or bake anything,

6:31:526:31:54

-absolutely anything, on the show, what would it be and why?

-Why!

6:31:546:31:58

That's right. Head to the website,

6:31:586:31:59

leave a comment and we'll try and read out as many as we can

6:31:596:32:02

at the end of the show.

6:32:026:32:04

-Poop! That's what I'd make.

-What? Radzi, what?

-I'm actually

6:32:046:32:07

being serious. We're going to show you how to make an edible emoji.

6:32:076:32:10

We know you love emojis and we know you kind of love going to the

6:32:106:32:12

-toilet.

-The living poo!

-So we're going to make an edible version.

6:32:126:32:15

We're also going to make these emojis that are lollipops.

6:32:156:32:17

They're very exciting. I like the guy with sunglasses.

6:32:176:32:20

-Radzi, shall we do this?

-Absolutely.

-Walk this way.

-Bye!

6:32:206:32:22

-See you later, Linz.

-See ya.

-Now, these might look a little bit

6:32:226:32:24

-disgusting but I can assure you they're very tasty.

-We're not

6:32:246:32:27

talking about these three people, we're talking about what he's

6:32:276:32:29

making. Hi, guys, high fives. We're doing backwards ones now. Hi, Em.

6:32:296:32:32

Hi, Ethan. And, Maha, good to see you here in the studio.

6:32:326:32:35

You are our experts today, which is good to know.

6:32:356:32:37

Maha, what have you made?

6:32:376:32:38

-What have you brought with you?

-Chocolate cupcakes.

6:32:386:32:40

Look at those chocolate cupcakes!

6:32:406:32:42

By the way, they're not going home with you.

6:32:426:32:45

-Emma, what have you made?

-Chocolate brownies.

6:32:456:32:47

Have you actually made those? They look really good.

6:32:476:32:49

Are they really tasty? Are we allowed to eat these or...?

6:32:496:32:51

We haven't been doing that so far. Can we eat them? No? OK.

6:32:516:32:53

And, Ethan, what have you made?

6:32:536:32:55

I've made a Victoria sponge cake.

6:32:556:32:57

It's beautiful. Thank you so much for being here. You are our experts

6:32:576:32:59

and you're going to be decorating your emoji faces.

6:32:596:33:02

Well, it's now time to make some poop!

6:33:026:33:04

And all you need is the following...

6:33:046:33:06

And that is all you need.

6:33:166:33:18

Large amount of melted chocolate, just eat what you don't use.

6:33:186:33:20

The more the better, my friends.

6:33:206:33:22

The very first thing I've done is I've preheated this bad boy

6:33:226:33:24

to 180 degrees and then it comes to the actual making part.

6:33:246:33:28

So I take this paste, which is melted chocolate chips,

6:33:286:33:31

melted butter and I've added some condensed milk.

6:33:316:33:34

You can see this is a very nice, smooth paste,

6:33:346:33:37

but to make it poopy we need some flour.

6:33:376:33:40

So this is where we add a little bit of flour.

6:33:406:33:44

I'll be honest,

6:33:446:33:45

I don't know exactly how much flour you need to make the perfect

6:33:456:33:49

mixture, so do it until you get it about the same as modelling clay.

6:33:496:33:53

You'll have a lot more than myself.

6:33:536:33:55

Once you've gone through as much flour as you deem appropriate,

6:33:556:33:58

you have a dollop, which will look like this here.

6:33:586:34:02

I should warn you that if you're eating right now,

6:34:026:34:05

now's a good time to probably stop eating. I'm going to take out this.

6:34:056:34:09

This is actually a crumbly one, just so you know.

6:34:096:34:11

Just a little bit of advanced warning.

6:34:116:34:13

I'm going to now roll this into a little sausage here.

6:34:136:34:16

This is my favourite thing you've done for ages.

6:34:166:34:18

-Is that a brownie?

-No!

-Is that...? Is that...?

6:34:186:34:21

What do you think, guys? What do you think of his thing that he's making?

6:34:216:34:24

-It's good.

-It's good, isn't it?

-Yeah.

-Thank you very much.

6:34:246:34:26

Do you think it looks pooey enough?

6:34:266:34:29

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-Good! Good!

6:34:296:34:30

Got the seal of approval.

6:34:306:34:32

So you've got a rough sort of sausagey roll...

6:34:326:34:34

I've actually put a bit too much flour on this one.

6:34:346:34:36

And I'm now going to try and roll this into the aforementioned shape.

6:34:366:34:40

So here we have... Not the best but it's sort of there.

6:34:406:34:45

You've done that so much better every time so far.

6:34:456:34:47

I know! And it's all messed up.

6:34:476:34:49

But fortunately these are much better than my versions.

6:34:496:34:51

I'll take that, plonk it there,

6:34:516:34:53

and then I will simply place it into the oven.

6:34:536:34:55

Fortunately, the oven is actually warm, it's not hot, otherwise

6:34:556:34:58

I'd have hurt my fingers at that point.

6:34:586:35:00

But fear not, my friends, I survived with my asbestos fingers.

6:35:006:35:03

The finished product, as you can see, is just here.

6:35:036:35:06

And all I've done is added the eyes and the smile. They'll be

6:35:066:35:09

in the oven for eight minutes. This is now cooled down beautifully

6:35:096:35:12

and that makes your face emoji. Barney, what have you got?

6:35:126:35:15

Beautifully done, sir. Thank you very much.

6:35:156:35:17

We're going to make some emoji smiling faces.

6:35:176:35:20

Now, you have to use round biscuits and you have to use round biscuits

6:35:206:35:23

that have got the custard filling in them because that's how you stick

6:35:236:35:26

your lollipop in. So, very carefully you pull apart your biscuit

6:35:266:35:29

so you've got two halves.

6:35:296:35:31

Now, we have a mixture of white chocolate and yellow food colouring.

6:35:316:35:34

The white chocolate's been melted to make, like, a sort of a sauce.

6:35:346:35:37

Any kind of chocolate will do the job but obviously the yellow

6:35:376:35:39

food colouring goes well with white to make it an emoji colour.

6:35:396:35:42

We've melted that. We've now made what is effectively a bit of glue.

6:35:426:35:46

We also need some lollipop sticks, which are here somewhere.

6:35:466:35:49

By the way, guys, you're doing a fab job.

6:35:496:35:51

A really good job. Oh, that's amazing.

6:35:516:35:53

We'll come to that in a minute. So, you've got your lemon

6:35:536:35:56

and white chocolate mix.

6:35:566:35:59

You place it into the middle of your biscuit and press it through

6:35:596:36:01

the creamy filling. And then you want to add a little tiny bit -

6:36:016:36:04

not too much because you don't want it to squirt out from the sides

6:36:046:36:07

here, just a little bit, so that when that chocolate sets,

6:36:076:36:09

it'll actually hold the biscuit together.

6:36:096:36:11

Then what you do is you put that biscuit onto a tray into a fridge.

6:36:116:36:15

-Leave it there for about eight minutes.

-Delicious.

6:36:156:36:17

And it will come out looking like one of these.

6:36:176:36:19

The reason you put it in the fridge is because you want the

6:36:196:36:22

chocolate to set, because if you try and do this too soon,

6:36:226:36:24

this next part will go wrong because this will just drop off

6:36:246:36:27

into your mix. Guys, how you getting on over there?

6:36:276:36:29

You're decorating at the moment, you're well ahead of me.

6:36:296:36:31

-Ethan, talk to me.

-I've made a cry face.

6:36:316:36:35

-A crying face!

-Aw! That's good.

6:36:356:36:37

-You're having a good time, though, right?

-Yeah.

-OK, good to know.

6:36:376:36:40

Em, how about you?

6:36:406:36:41

I've done an embarrassed face.

6:36:416:36:43

-Yes!

-Amazing, rosy cheeks, nice 3-D eyes as well.

6:36:436:36:46

Maha, what have you done?

6:36:466:36:48

I've done a geek face.

6:36:486:36:49

-Nice!

-Very cool.

6:36:496:36:51

Well, they've achieved that look by doing exactly what I'm doing

6:36:516:36:53

as part of the process.

6:36:536:36:55

You cover your biscuit lollipop in the white chocolate and yellow food

6:36:556:36:58

colouring and you stick it onto a baking tray that's lined with

6:36:586:37:01

paper and that then goes into the fridge. Once you've done that -

6:37:016:37:03

these have already been in the fridge - you're ready for

6:37:036:37:05

decorating. And you can decorate it with anything you like.

6:37:056:37:08

I'm going to go for sunglasses and a smiley face. All the details

6:37:086:37:11

you need for this make are on the Blue Peter website.

6:37:116:37:13

Head over there and check it out, people!

6:37:136:37:15

Now, I think we've worked really hard today, guys.

6:37:156:37:17

I think it's time for a treat.

6:37:176:37:19

-Yeah!

-Radzi, there you go.

6:37:196:37:20

-I'm only kidding, it's the film that's the treat.

-Ah!

6:37:206:37:23

I've come to Birmingham to make a film about one of my

6:37:256:37:28

favourite things in the world...

6:37:286:37:30

cake!

6:37:306:37:32

Although, to be honest, I don't think I'm in the right place.

6:37:326:37:36

I mean, don't get me wrong, these models are absolutely amazing but

6:37:376:37:40

it's no Swiss roll, is it?

6:37:406:37:42

Where's the sponge?

6:37:426:37:44

Well, I have to say, I'm a little bit embarrassed, guys.

6:37:466:37:48

We've got no film today, we can't do anything, there's no cake here.

6:37:486:37:50

I thought there was cake.

6:37:506:37:52

But there isn't, so...

6:37:526:37:53

film's off. Sorry, I've let you down there, haven't I? Hey...

6:37:536:37:57

Oh, yes, that is what I'm talking about! Let's do this.

6:37:576:38:01

Oh, yeah! I knew there was cake here.

6:38:026:38:04

Believe it or not, these are all cakes.

6:38:066:38:09

Seriously, how do they do this?

6:38:096:38:11

This is Cake International, the UK's biggest cake-decorating show.

6:38:116:38:15

I mean, just look at it.

6:38:156:38:17

That's a cake.

6:38:176:38:19

But I'm not here to drool over delicious cakes,

6:38:196:38:22

I'm taking part in a challenge.

6:38:226:38:24

I have to create a Blue Peter pet out of cake,

6:38:246:38:27

which will then be judged against other top designers' efforts

6:38:276:38:29

on a special BP competition stand.

6:38:296:38:33

So I think it's fair to say I'm going to need some serious help.

6:38:336:38:36

Meet Molly Robbins, an award-winning cake-decorating artist

6:38:376:38:41

and my mentor for this challenge.

6:38:416:38:43

OK, what are we doing?

6:38:456:38:46

We're making Shelley the tortoise.

6:38:466:38:48

That's right, our Shelley is about to be lovingly recreated

6:38:486:38:51

in cake form.

6:38:516:38:53

But where do we start?

6:38:536:38:55

That's going to be her shell.

6:38:556:38:56

-OK.

-And then we're going to put the head on and the feet.

6:38:566:38:58

So first job is we've got to get the shape.

6:38:586:39:01

So we're making a tortoise shape.

6:39:016:39:03

-Yeah.

-Like an egg shape almost.

6:39:036:39:05

'By trimming off little pieces, we start to create Shelley's shape.

6:39:056:39:09

'But cut away too much and it's game over.'

6:39:096:39:11

-That is a good Shelley shape.

-Yeah, it looks good.

6:39:116:39:14

'Next, we cover our cake with buttercream.'

6:39:146:39:17

So this is going to fill in all the cracks and get it nice and

6:39:176:39:19

-smooth for the icing.

-It's a bit like plastering a house.

6:39:196:39:22

You put quite a lot on but there's no way I could make it look anywhere

6:39:226:39:25

near as smooth as Molly is.

6:39:256:39:28

'When the buttercream's added, it's time to roll out the icing.'

6:39:286:39:31

Just like that.

6:39:316:39:33

'And after we've got the icing as smooth as possible,

6:39:336:39:35

'we can also use it to make Shelley's head and feet.'

6:39:356:39:38

-So are you going to make a foot?

-I'm going to make a foot and you're

6:39:386:39:41

going to make Shelley's head.

6:39:416:39:42

'This is where Molly's incredible skills come into their own.

6:39:426:39:45

'She really is awesome.

6:39:456:39:47

'By adding small amounts of texture to the icing,

6:39:476:39:50

'Shelley really starts to take shape.'

6:39:506:39:52

It's amazing how adding just tiny little details

6:39:546:39:56

-makes a huge difference.

-She's looking pretty real, I think.

-Yeah.

6:39:566:39:59

-Yeah.

-She's getting there. We just need to put some colour on now.

6:39:596:40:03

I've got some food colouring

6:40:036:40:04

and I've just watered it down a little bit.

6:40:046:40:06

-That's looking really good.

-Well, I've been taught by the best, Moll.

6:40:116:40:13

As you can see, we've got quite a way to go here finishing the detail

6:40:136:40:17

on Shelley. So for now, if you leave us to it,

6:40:176:40:19

we'll get on with this and we'll see you soon at the cake show.

6:40:196:40:22

It's competition day and our Blue Peter stand is all set up

6:40:256:40:28

with a host of previous Blue Peter pets made by some top designers.

6:40:286:40:32

There's Petra, Kari and Oke,

6:40:326:40:35

Shep, Mabel, good old Iggy

6:40:356:40:38

and, of course, our Shelley.

6:40:386:40:40

-How are you feeling, Moll?

-I'm feeling good.

6:40:406:40:42

Shelley's looking really good.

6:40:426:40:43

But how's she going to do in the competition?

6:40:436:40:45

We're going to have to find out.

6:40:456:40:47

We are, yes, by getting in our elite team of judges. Cue the slow-mo.

6:40:476:40:50

We've put together a top team of BP fans to decide

6:40:526:40:54

which cake is number one and they are led by head judge Sally.

6:40:546:40:59

You are my lead judges.

6:40:596:41:02

It's time for us to choose the top three.

6:41:026:41:06

We need to look really closely at proportion, texturing and colouring.

6:41:066:41:12

We'll be watching the judges from backstage and, by the way,

6:41:126:41:15

they've no idea which cake is ours.

6:41:156:41:18

All right, here we go.

6:41:186:41:19

So, what do you think of this one?

6:41:216:41:23

I like the texture because it looks, like, real and inside the mouth,

6:41:236:41:27

it looks really black, like how a dog's mouth would be.

6:41:276:41:30

Yes, because it's all shiny, isn't it?

6:41:306:41:32

I like how the eyes are kind of different colours

6:41:326:41:36

-and the detail in them.

-Yes.

6:41:366:41:38

And I like how the fur's rough so it looks like proper fur.

6:41:386:41:42

And the character, one ear up and one ear down.

6:41:426:41:45

-Yeah, it's quite happy.

-Yes, just like Mabel.

6:41:456:41:48

OK, good comments so far about the big cakes,

6:41:486:41:50

but it's the littlest cake there

6:41:506:41:52

-that we want to get the biggest reaction for, don't we?

-Yeah.

6:41:526:41:55

But will our carefully constructed Shelley impress the judges?

6:41:556:41:59

I like it. That's all the same shape.

6:41:596:42:01

-That's exactly how Shelley actually looks, isn't it?

-Yeah.

6:42:016:42:04

-That's actually really cool.

-Yeah.

-They're talking about it a lot.

6:42:046:42:07

This is going well. This is going really well.

6:42:076:42:09

I like how they've done different things to the paws

6:42:096:42:11

and the head because the head's got dots.

6:42:116:42:13

That's different, isn't it, all the way round the edge?

6:42:136:42:16

Yeah, I think it's really good.

6:42:166:42:18

After lots and lots of cake critiquing,

6:42:186:42:21

our young judges are ready to announce their top three.

6:42:216:42:24

-OK, they're ready. Shall we go?

-Yes, I'm so excited.

-All right, then.

6:42:246:42:27

Follow me.

6:42:276:42:30

-Hi, guys, how are you?

-Hi, we're good, thank you.

-Good.

6:42:306:42:33

-Molly, it's time for the results.

-Hi, guys!

6:42:336:42:36

-Hi, judges, good to see you all.

-So, in third place, we have Shep.

6:42:366:42:40

That's right. In second place,

6:42:406:42:44

-we have Kari and Oke.

-OK.

6:42:446:42:47

'So, Shelley is still in with a chance. Fingers crossed.'

6:42:476:42:51

First place - who is it?

6:42:516:42:53

-ALL:

-Shelley!

6:42:536:42:55

-Yes!

-Amazing!

-BOTH:

-Well done.

6:42:556:42:57

'I cannot believe it!

6:42:576:42:59

'The judges loved the texture and detail that helped make

6:42:596:43:02

'Shelley look super-realistic, but, let's be honest,

6:43:026:43:05

'there's no way I could have done it without Molly's amazing skills.'

6:43:056:43:08

It's been a really interesting journey,

6:43:086:43:10

not just being here and making the cake with Molly,

6:43:106:43:13

but then entering it into a competition as well and to actually

6:43:136:43:15

come away as the winner, well, that's just the icing on the cake.

6:43:156:43:18

Yeah, always finish on a strong joke, Barney. Good.

6:43:196:43:22

Bad joke! See, Shelley is always a winner in my eyes.

6:43:246:43:27

She's a little legend and here she is now.

6:43:276:43:29

This is the finished Shelley cake.

6:43:296:43:31

-Barney, can I have a bit?

-Nope.

6:43:316:43:33

OK. Thanks, Barney. Maybe later in the show.

6:43:346:43:36

I am definitely going to steal some.

6:43:366:43:38

In the meantime, please welcome

6:43:386:43:39

the amazingly talented artist Jon Burgerman.

6:43:396:43:41

-Hello, hello, hello!

-Hello, Jon.

-How are you doing?

6:43:416:43:44

-Welcome to Blue Peter or should I say welcome back?

-Oh, thanks.

6:43:446:43:47

Because you've been on before, haven't you, a few years ago?

6:43:476:43:50

-A little while ago, yeah.

-It was nine years, Jon.

6:43:506:43:52

-Time flies, doesn't it?

-It certainly does.

6:43:526:43:55

We've actually got some footage of back when you were on Blue Peter.

6:43:556:43:57

This is 2008 and you made us this amazing kind of mural

6:43:576:44:02

for the Blue Peter 50th birthday, didn't you?

6:44:026:44:04

Yeah, it was a lot of fun. I did a big doodle for you guys.

6:44:046:44:07

And we've got it here now from the Blue Peter archives,

6:44:076:44:10

-which is really special.

-Or skip.

6:44:106:44:12

No, archives - we really look after our Blue Peter makes and bakes.

6:44:126:44:16

So, what have you been up to since then?

6:44:166:44:18

-Doodling, maybe?

-Just maybe drawing.

-Yeah.

6:44:186:44:22

No, come on, you've been up to a bit more than that.

6:44:226:44:23

-I made a book which came out today.

-That's right

6:44:236:44:26

and it's called Splat!,

6:44:266:44:27

-which we love.

-Splat, yes.

-Now, this inspired a make

6:44:276:44:29

we're going to be doing later on. It is so good, isn't it?

6:44:296:44:32

Yeah, it's a make involving eggs and splatting

6:44:326:44:35

so it's perfect for the Easter holidays.

6:44:356:44:37

Well, I can't wait to get involved later and, of course, on Blue Peter,

6:44:376:44:40

we love getting creative, but we are not the only ones.

6:44:406:44:42

Jon, you are going to love this. Have a look at what Lucia did.

6:44:426:44:46

Hi, I'm Lucia and I love Blue Peter and all the makes on the show.

6:44:466:44:50

I made this bunting using wooden sticks, stickers, pom-poms,

6:44:506:44:55

buttons and other crafty things.

6:44:556:44:57

I hope you like it.

6:44:576:45:00

-We love it!

-We love it! It's so good. Come on over, Jon.

6:45:006:45:03

Now, we can't have a make and bake show without displaying

6:45:036:45:06

-your makes and bakes.

-Are you still eating some of the bakes?

6:45:066:45:09

These brownies are amazing. So, let's take a look at Lily's pasty.

6:45:096:45:11

It's a felt pasty, inspired by the competition

6:45:116:45:14

I was part of a few weeks ago.

6:45:146:45:15

Look at that - myself, Radzi and Lynsey on the outside.

6:45:156:45:17

She's even put the words "yum-yum" on there. Lily, badge - it's yours.

6:45:176:45:21

-Thank you very much.

-You can't eat that one, Barney, it's made of felt.

6:45:216:45:23

You can eat that, carry on with that.

6:45:236:45:25

Harry's been very busy as well, have a look.

6:45:256:45:27

Hello, my name's Harry and I love Blue Peter

6:45:276:45:30

and all the makes they do on the show.

6:45:306:45:32

I love making stuff myself, especially sewing things.

6:45:326:45:34

I sewed these three felt dolls of the Blue Peter presenters

6:45:346:45:37

Barney, Lynsey and Radzi. I hope you like them.

6:45:376:45:39

-Yay, we love that. Stop eating the felt pasty.

-You can't eat that one.

6:45:396:45:43

You're so good at presenting, by the way, you lovely lot.

6:45:436:45:45

And now here's Nye.

6:45:456:45:47

My name is Nye. This is my egg box Shelley.

6:45:476:45:50

She's made out of a sock, an egg box and toilet rolls and paint

6:45:506:45:56

and glitter and I made it

6:45:566:45:58

because I like how tortoises are very, very slow.

6:45:586:46:01

It's a good point. Well done, Nye.

6:46:016:46:03

I think Nye should be the new Blue Peter presenter. What do you reckon?

6:46:036:46:06

-Agreed.

-We'll have a word with the bosses.

6:46:066:46:08

Jon, what have you found?

6:46:086:46:09

I like this piece by Oliver, who's aged seven and from Lancashire.

6:46:096:46:12

-He's made the Blue Peter boat out of solid silver.

-Wow!

6:46:126:46:15

-That's not an easy shape, is it?

-No, it's a lot of silver.

6:46:156:46:18

As an artist, you know these things.

6:46:186:46:20

Please keep your makes, bakes, post, anything coming in to us.

6:46:206:46:23

The address you need is right there and, remember,

6:46:236:46:26

it's Easter holiday time, people,

6:46:266:46:27

and your badge can get you into over 200 attractions across the UK...

6:46:276:46:31

# For free! #

6:46:316:46:33

-Jon, where were you with the harmony?

-Beautiful...

6:46:336:46:35

All the details are on the website.

6:46:356:46:36

Do you reckon that Oliver's made that boat because he's a pirate

6:46:366:46:39

-and he had lots of access to silver? Maybe that's what it is.

-Maybe.

6:46:396:46:42

I think Thomas might be the same because Thomas has requested

6:46:426:46:44

that we find out how the new pound coin is made,

6:46:446:46:46

which is actually made with silver and gold.

6:46:466:46:48

I went to the Royal Mint to find out how they do it.

6:46:486:46:51

Hi! Cup of tea, please.

6:46:516:46:52

Lovely! Thank you.

6:46:556:46:58

So, today, I'm going to be looking at the best make ever.

6:46:586:47:01

I'm going to be making money.

6:47:016:47:03

Now, you may have noticed recently that the pound coin

6:47:036:47:05

has changed from this one to this one.

6:47:056:47:08

You may also think that's not a big deal, but it actually is.

6:47:086:47:12

Get ready for some serious numbers.

6:47:126:47:14

There are around 1.5 billion pound coins

6:47:166:47:18

currently being used in the UK.

6:47:186:47:20

Around 400 million are kept in savings jars

6:47:206:47:23

and they can last for up to 40 years,

6:47:236:47:25

but the really scary number is that roughly one in 30 pound coins

6:47:256:47:30

is a fake and that's a problem.

6:47:306:47:32

So, the guys that make the country's money have stepped in

6:47:336:47:36

to take action and we've been given exclusive access

6:47:366:47:39

to see how they change...your change. It's funny, that.

6:47:396:47:42

Anyway, so we're going somewhere where there's a lot of money.

6:47:426:47:45

Yeah, I wish.

6:47:476:47:49

BEEPING

6:47:496:47:51

Welcome to the Royal Mint.

6:47:516:47:54

This room is where all the coins in the UK are made

6:47:546:47:56

and we're talking about a serious amount of money.

6:47:566:47:59

These machines here can churn out 700 coins a minute

6:47:596:48:03

so if we're talking pound coins, that's £1 million a day.

6:48:036:48:07

That's enough to pay Taylor Swift, One Direction

6:48:076:48:10

and Cristiano Ronaldo to hang out with you.

6:48:106:48:13

Some serious money!

6:48:136:48:15

To find out more,

6:48:156:48:16

I'm meeting one of the curators here at the Royal Mint, Chris Barker.

6:48:166:48:20

What do you think it was about the old pound coin

6:48:206:48:22

that made it so easy to forge?

6:48:226:48:24

It's just that counterfeiters have become so good.

6:48:246:48:26

They've become so good at copying it and the round pound doesn't have

6:48:266:48:29

as many security features as the new £1 does have.

6:48:296:48:31

It's a coin that James Bond would use, isn't it?

6:48:316:48:33

Can you talk me through the actual security features of the coin?

6:48:336:48:36

You want to go and speak to a guy called Gordon.

6:48:366:48:37

He's our chief engraver and he'll be able to tell you more about that.

6:48:376:48:40

Gordon - he's our man.

6:48:406:48:41

As chief engraver, Gordon is responsible for making sure

6:48:416:48:45

the coin not only looks great, but can't be copied easily.

6:48:456:48:50

(Kind of a big deal round here.)

6:48:506:48:52

He and his team have come up with some very cool ways

6:48:526:48:54

to stop counterfeiters copying this new coin.

6:48:546:48:57

We've got what we call microtext,

6:48:586:49:00

which is really fine lettering just on the inside edge of the coin.

6:49:006:49:03

We've got this thing which is a holographic sort of feature.

6:49:036:49:07

You look at it in one direction, you see one design.

6:49:076:49:10

You look at it in another direction, you see another.

6:49:106:49:12

That's really clever. So, that's hard to replicate, I presume?

6:49:126:49:15

Everything that we do is to try and make it really difficult

6:49:156:49:17

for somebody else to do it and the idea is that it costs them more

6:49:176:49:20

than £1 to make a pound coin...

6:49:206:49:22

Then it's pointless making the coin, of course.

6:49:226:49:24

A very simple question, I guess,

6:49:246:49:26

is how you get those two metals to come together as one coin.

6:49:266:49:29

It's all done in the press and we've got those presses here

6:49:296:49:32

-if you want to have a look at them.

-I would love to. Is that OK?

6:49:326:49:34

-Yeah, that'd be no problem at all.

-Amazing!

6:49:346:49:36

Gordon, thank you very much.

6:49:366:49:38

The two parts of the coin are loaded into a machine

6:49:386:49:40

using a forklift truck.

6:49:406:49:42

Then, with a simple push of a button -

6:49:426:49:45

oh, yes, look who's pushing it -

6:49:456:49:46

the machine presses the coin together

6:49:466:49:48

with a whopping 70 tonnes of pressure.

6:49:486:49:51

Once the coin's been pressed, it's dropped into a box,

6:49:526:49:55

where it can be checked for quality.

6:49:556:49:58

And here it is - the brand-new pound coin that you're going

6:49:586:50:00

to be using in next to no time. But the story doesn't end here.

6:50:006:50:04

Yes, the pound coins have now been made, but the next challenge

6:50:046:50:07

is getting them out to the rest of the country

6:50:076:50:09

and that's where these boxes come in.

6:50:096:50:10

One thing's for sure, the Royal Mint don't do things by halves.

6:50:146:50:17

They don't understand the word "small".

6:50:176:50:19

Everything here is enormous. Now, in each one of these boxes is £85,000.

6:50:196:50:24

That weighs 664kg.

6:50:246:50:27

That means that two of these things together

6:50:276:50:30

is the same weight as a hippopotamus.

6:50:306:50:32

Just two of them!

6:50:326:50:34

This is big.

6:50:346:50:35

See? I told you it was big.

6:50:386:50:40

So, once our big box of money

6:50:466:50:47

has been loaded onto our forklift truck over here,

6:50:476:50:49

it makes its way down to this side of the warehouse,

6:50:496:50:52

where we have to perform a couple of checks.

6:50:526:50:54

Mark, that's EL-1, please.

6:50:546:50:56

Thank you. Quick scan.

6:50:576:50:59

-BEEP

-Beautiful. Quick scan.

6:50:596:51:01

-BEEP

-Beautiful.

6:51:016:51:02

And now it can be loaded onto the van,

6:51:026:51:03

which is a bit like a Batmobile.

6:51:036:51:05

Well, a white boxy-mobile. Anyway, thank you very much. As you were.

6:51:056:51:10

Actually, this truck is awesome.

6:51:116:51:13

It's got an armoured wall, there's a locked box at the back

6:51:136:51:16

and it is guarded by a fire-breathing dragon.

6:51:166:51:19

Raar!

6:51:196:51:21

OK, not a fire-breathing dragon - just me.

6:51:216:51:23

But it does have loads of gadgets and gizmos in here

6:51:236:51:25

that I can't tell you about, but in the back, it has 20 boxes,

6:51:256:51:28

each one of them containing £85,000.

6:51:286:51:31

Now, that...is a lot.

6:51:316:51:34

-ENGINE STARTS

-Yeah.

6:51:346:51:36

It's a lot of money, that.

6:51:386:51:39

Once the coins are loaded up,

6:51:416:51:43

the trucks head off for coin centres around the country,

6:51:436:51:46

where they are double-checked for quality

6:51:466:51:47

and then split up into smaller bags.

6:51:476:51:50

And it's from here that they are hand-delivered to banks

6:51:526:51:55

and shops near you and me.

6:51:556:51:57

Thanks very much. So, there you have it.

6:52:016:52:03

Now you can spend your new pound coin

6:52:036:52:05

in shops up and down the country, knowing the journey its made

6:52:056:52:08

before it even gets to your pocket. So cool!

6:52:086:52:11

Actually, I should probably spend a penny.

6:52:126:52:15

I want a new pound coin, they're so cool!

6:52:176:52:19

Speaking of cool, Jon Burgerman's back.

6:52:196:52:21

-Hello!

-Hello!

-Welcome back to the show.

6:52:216:52:23

-Now, I'm very excited for this make we're about to do.

-Me, too.

6:52:236:52:25

It was inspired by you, actually,

6:52:256:52:27

because when you were last on Blue Peter,

6:52:276:52:29

we noticed you said something quite specific about your masterpiece.

6:52:296:52:33

Have a look at this.

6:52:336:52:35

You've put some of your favourite bits from Blue Peter

6:52:356:52:37

across the years - there's a tortoise there.

6:52:376:52:39

And I don't know about this one - a bit of egg and chips?

6:52:396:52:42

-What's all that about?

-Well, when I was drawing the piece,

6:52:426:52:44

I began thinking about my memories of Blue Peter and watching it

6:52:446:52:48

as a child so, yeah, this is what I used to eat

6:52:486:52:50

when I came home from school.

6:52:506:52:52

-See? So, you love eggs, we know you love splat.

-Yes.

6:52:526:52:56

You look like a guy who loves a laugh.

6:52:566:52:58

-I love laughing, walks in the park.

-Good!

6:52:586:53:02

Well, this make is perfect for you, then. So, Jon, lead the way.

6:53:026:53:05

-What are we going to need?

-All right, we need...

6:53:056:53:08

OK, so what am I currently stirring? It looks gloopy.

6:53:206:53:22

So, this is the glue,

6:53:226:53:24

some white paint and the washing-up liquid

6:53:246:53:26

and we're going to mix it all together

6:53:266:53:27

and we're going to pour a blob of it,

6:53:276:53:29

a splat of it, not all of it,

6:53:296:53:31

but a bunch of it onto the plastic sheet

6:53:316:53:34

and then with our little stirrer,

6:53:346:53:36

we're going to mush it round into a kind of egg shape.

6:53:366:53:39

-We like the words "mush" and "splat" today.

-Yes, they're nice words.

6:53:396:53:42

And then once you're happy with that...

6:53:426:53:44

-That's the best I've done all day!

-The yellow mixture... It's lovely.

6:53:446:53:47

We're going to put the yolk in

6:53:476:53:49

and we're not going to put too much

6:53:496:53:50

because it might spread out when it lands.

6:53:506:53:52

That's a Blue Peter top tip - not too much yolk.

6:53:526:53:54

-Oh, that's too much yolk.

-That was a little too much yolk.

6:53:546:53:57

Watch the pro do it. Not too much yolk...

6:53:576:53:59

But you can use your little stirrer to sort of spread it out.

6:53:596:54:02

-Not too much yolk!

-That's way too much yolk.

6:54:026:54:04

All right, we've ruined that a little bit, but it's OK.

6:54:046:54:08

-It can be any kind of shape.

-OK.

6:54:086:54:11

Then you're going to need to make your egg shell

6:54:116:54:13

so while we wait for that to dry...

6:54:136:54:16

We haven't got time for that, have we? It's a live show.

6:54:166:54:18

-Let's keep going.

-So, we get a balloon,

6:54:186:54:21

we put papier mache, about two layers,

6:54:216:54:23

-over the balloon.

-Yep.

-And then...

6:54:236:54:25

And then we can pop the balloon and once you've done your zigzags

6:54:256:54:28

and been nice and careful with the scissors,

6:54:286:54:30

you should have something that looks like this, your little eggshells.

6:54:306:54:33

I'll pass you one. It's painting time,

6:54:336:54:34

this is where you can get pretty creative.

6:54:346:54:36

-Now, we're going to go for normal eggshells.

-Realistic colour, yeah.

6:54:366:54:40

Greys and those kind of colours, but you can be really creative.

6:54:406:54:43

We love a bit of that on Blue Peter

6:54:436:54:45

so you can do a nice blue one there, you can do stars and stripes.

6:54:456:54:48

You can do an army camo one.

6:54:486:54:50

Whatever takes your fancy, go for it.

6:54:506:54:52

-Now, obviously you'll have more time than us.

-Yes.

6:54:526:54:54

That doesn't look that real, but once you've done them...

6:54:546:54:57

Here you go. They should look something like this.

6:54:576:55:00

-These are some we...

-Made earlier!

-Yes.

6:55:006:55:02

All right, so once we have those, they're nice and dry,

6:55:026:55:04

then we get our splatted eggs and we peel them off the plastic and BOOM!

6:55:046:55:11

You have a hilarious egg splat. You can add some googly eyes to the egg.

6:55:116:55:15

A bit of character. We like that. If you do make one,

6:55:156:55:17

make sure you take a pic and send it to us because we want to see it.

6:55:176:55:20

Now, Jon, as I said, it is a live show.

6:55:206:55:22

You didn't know that we were going to do this,

6:55:226:55:24

but you have been on Blue Peter twice doing different things, which

6:55:246:55:27

means that you have earned yourself your very own little silver badge.

6:55:276:55:30

-Really?

-That's right.

6:55:306:55:32

-CHEERING

-There you go, Jon.

6:55:336:55:35

Congrats! Enjoy it. We love it.

6:55:356:55:38

-It's real.

-Yeah, thanks!

-Barney?

6:55:386:55:41

Oh, it's us!

6:55:426:55:43

So, anyway, we asked you to get in touch

6:55:436:55:45

and send us comments about what you would like us

6:55:456:55:47

to make or bake on the show. Salmon Mash Cat says,

6:55:476:55:49

"Can you please make the Eiffel Tower out of chocolate?

6:55:496:55:52

"It'll be funny to watch." That's a cracker.

6:55:526:55:54

Blobs For Life, great name, says, "I think they could make a cake,

6:55:546:55:56

"but they're blindfolded with children helping them."

6:55:566:56:00

Are you up for that?

6:56:006:56:02

-Yeah.

-Good.

-Guys, have you had fun today coming on?

-Yeah.

6:56:026:56:05

-We've had fun with your cakes. Thank you very much.

-We like that.

6:56:056:56:08

You've had fun today. Stop stealing the emoji biscuits, come on.

6:56:086:56:12

-Salmon Mash Cat... Did you say that one, Barns?

-What's that?

6:56:126:56:15

Salmon Mash Cat?

6:56:156:56:16

OK, Glass Mammoth Goat says,

6:56:166:56:17

"Can you make models like the Danger Mouse car make?"

6:56:176:56:20

-That's hard.

-Yeah, but as in make it like a cake?

6:56:206:56:24

-Oh, I see.

-Like with liquorice wheels or something like that.

6:56:246:56:26

-I'm on that one!

-That's going to take days.

6:56:266:56:28

Tallulah Pancake, "White chocolate Rocky Road Easter cakes

6:56:286:56:32

"along with some jazzy Easter decorations." Yes!

6:56:326:56:35

Biggest CBBC Fan says,

6:56:356:56:37

"I think the presenters should make the tallest cake possible

6:56:376:56:40

"with lots of layers and lots of different fillings in between."

6:56:406:56:42

-I wonder how big the tallest cake is.

-We could make a Radzi cake.

6:56:426:56:45

-Hello!

-Life size, how good would that be?

6:56:456:56:48

Molly's actually made a pony. You know Molly in that film?

6:56:486:56:50

She's made a real-size pony.

6:56:506:56:51

-So she could make a real-size Radzi no problem at all.

-Done.

6:56:516:56:54

-Amazing.

-Jon, would you like to read a comment?

6:56:546:56:56

Apricot Spotty Jedi says, "Making Easter baskets

6:56:566:57:01

"and filling them with chocolate eggs blindfolded."

6:57:016:57:03

That's more of a challenge as well as a make and a bake.

6:57:036:57:05

Thank you so much for getting in touch and sending in your comments.

6:57:056:57:08

We might even give one of those a try.

6:57:086:57:10

I'm thinking about the Danger Mouse one. It's genius.

6:57:106:57:12

Make sure you're watching next week. There's so much going on.

6:57:126:57:15

In the meantime, get onto the Blue Peter website

6:57:156:57:17

because there's a great bake quiz. Look at his little face!

6:57:176:57:21

As well as that, Nikki Lilly, the winner of Junior Bake Off,

6:57:216:57:23

is there giving her top tips, both advanced and beginners.

6:57:236:57:28

Not to mention, myself and Lynsey

6:57:286:57:30

will be taking on a scientist Greg Foot science challenge

6:57:306:57:33

involving friction.

6:57:336:57:35

JP Cooper's also going to be in the studio singing his September Song.

6:57:356:57:38

It's a beautiful song. I can't wait to hear it next week.

6:57:386:57:40

Thank you so much for being here this week.

6:57:406:57:42

There's going to be baby lambs, too. We'll see you next week.

6:57:426:57:44

-That's really cute.

-Fan Club live right now!

-Bye-bye!

-Bye!

6:57:446:57:48

It's the Blue Peter make and bake special!
