Robot Cake for the G-Man

It was recently my little boy's birthday. His name is Garrett but we call him G-Man. I know what you are thinking..and yes he is the cutest little boy you have ever seen, yep he takes after his super cute daddy. I know, lucky me ;)

One day he and I sat down at the computer to look at the Betty Crocker Cake decorating website found here. He went NUTS looking at all of the cakes. They have a ton of how to videos. We had to watch almost each and every one including the barbie princess cake. One in particular caught his eye (glad it wasn't the barbie princess cake) and best of all it was one that I, an extremely impatient person could handle.

It was a Robot cake. To say that it was cute was a complete understatement. If I do say so myself I rocked at copying... this cake. To see the original click here.

How did mine turn out you ask...well take a gander and see for yourself.

Okay Okay so I have spacing issues with the rollers (cookies) but eh...does it really matter to a 3 yr old?...nope.
I will say one thing for this cake is that you really need to take your time. In the videos they let you know that you need to chill the cake basically after every step. THIS IS A MUST.. the cake will crumble and so will you if you do not find a space in your fridge to keep it for a while.

The board that I put it on was super easy as well. I just took an old cardboard box, cut it to the right size and then I covered it in wrapping paper. Like I said Easy Peasy.

If you are interested in making this cake or any number of other ones just click on that linky above and it will tell you exactly how to do it. They also provide templates that can be printed out so that you don't even have to worry about figuring out how to cut the cake so that it turns out right.
