This cake took a lot of thought! Our son loves the movie "Robots" and especially the character ‘Madame Gasket’. I copied a free cake design from a book. I baked a 9" double layer cake and frosted it with chocolate icing. I also baked a 6" round cake (used a large ramekin) which became Madame Gasket’s head.
The gears claws and headpiece are made of foamies sheets and black pipe cleaners. The "gear" necklace is a piece of red shoestring licorice- the gear pendant is a Keebler Grasshopper cookie with a yellow fruit roll-up cut to fit on top. Her eyes are butterscotch candies with dots of black icing.
It was a time-consuming cake to make but well worth it! Our son was so excited he could hardly contain himself.
