Transformers Cake

My son’s party was at the zoo, but he LOVED the Transformers… so I let him have his Optimus Prime cake rather than a zoo themed cake.

I used an old Wilton’s robot/space man cake pan produced in the 70’s (found it on e-bay!). Looking off of an image of Optimus Prime, I made the cake into Optimus just by making a few adjustments with the icing.

I printed of a pic of Op’s face, laminated it, and glued it down with icing. I took the wheels off of some cheap trucks and stuck them in the sides because the real Optimus transforms into a huge truck.

I used two boxed cake mixes. I used white cake frosting and colored it with food coloring. I used the pre-colored Wilton’s red icing in the spray can for everything red.

I also made cupcakes with white icing and blue/red sprinkles because the cake pan did not provide a lot of servings. It took me awhile to make him… but I am still pretty new at this cake thing!

  1. I wanted to do a 3-D transformer cake to make it seem more real. This is just as cool, and not as difficult to figure out. What year did the cake pan come out that you used? You did great.

  2. So…the head that we see is really a laminated picture? It just looks so 3-D! I’m going to try this cake for my son, but a friend used chocolate donuts for truck tires this year. I think I’ll do the same.

  3. Yes, the face is just a laminated pic. It saved so much time. I just had to print it off in a few different sizes to match the head size with the body. Have fun!

  4. What a great cake, my son wanted the Transformed O.P. I wish I would have seen this a few months ago. Nice job.

  5. I bought that robot pan at a thrift store thinking I could make a Transformer with it. I’ve been trying to figure out how to make the face. Great Idea!! to just print and laminate it. I think that’s what I’ll do.
