Cool Homemade Transformers Optimus Prime Cake

I made two different cakes for my sons 4th birthday. One cake in each mode of Transformers Optimus Prime cake.

The first is just a large sheet cake. My son picked a picture of his favorite character and I drew the figure on the cake with a tooth pick and then filled the colors in according to the drawing I was copying.

The second cake was the semi and I baked a large sheet cake and let it cool in the freezer. Then I cut it in fourths and carved and stacked until I got the right shape. Then I frosted the whole thing together and let that sit. I colored fondant and rolled it out and placed it on the cake and cut it out accordingly.

For the flames in blue I used blue food coloring and painted them on. For the other things such as a grill and tires and the exhaust stack I just formed then formed them from more colored fondant.

Both cakes took about 8 hours total to make and were fairly easy. They would have been easier without the 10 month old hanging on my the whole time but such is life! Hope you have trying these!

  1. Great job on your son’s cake. I also made my son an Optimus Prime cake. It is posted as well. Your idea of two cakes was very creative. Your semi looks super. AND… I hear you about the baby hanging off you while you bake and decorate…I’m in the same club! Nice work :)

  2. Wow! You did great, I am looking for ideas and both of these look awesome! I am doing my son’s 5th b-day and have a 20-month-old so baking anything is usually a challenge. Hope your son’s b-day was the best!

  3. Well done April! These look great! My 6 yr old wants Transformers for his 7th next month. Thinking about this truck! Thanks!

  4. I loved both cakes. I am looking for ideas for may stepson`s b`day but it is tomorrow, I think I will try to do the semi. I have more than 8 hrs! and he will love it!
