Robot Cake Ideas
I copied this Robot cake from a gallery of cake designs on this wonderful site. I used an 8x8 for the head, 9x13 for the body and Twinkies for the arms and legs. I connected everything with Red vines, decorated with gray frosting (looked like metal) and decorated with candy. We named the robot after my son and put my son's first initial and age on the cake. He loved it!
When we moved to California I decorated my son's room in vintage tin robots. He soon learned to say “bo-bot” and knew I wanted him to have a robot birthday cake so I started to search the internet for examples and couldn't find anything even close to the image I had in my mind. His birthday was soon approaching and with no cake pictures online to work with I drew out the cake as I saw it in my mind and worked up a way to make it myself.
It's basically the “bust” of the robot. The “ears” are sour gummies sticking out; the “bulb” on top of his head is a green ring pop and the rest is just colored buttercream icing. I’m happy to add it to this gallery of cake designs.
My son was really into robots so I made this robot cake for his third birthday! I made two square cakes, one for the body and the other I cut up for the feet, etc. The candy all over the robot was a hit also, I bought store butter cream and added black coloring till it was a metallic color!
