Steam Punk and Robot Fun!

I made this cake for my son's 8th birthday party!  His theme was a party that involved taking a bunch of recyclables and a glue gun and everyone builds their own robot to take home.  A great time was had by all!

This is a topsy turvy cake.  Both top and bottom layers are iced and painted with fondant accents.  Robot is fondant.  I made the top cake an Oreo and cream cake and the bottom layer is an M&M layered cake.  The little robot krispy treats are made from the pre-packaged treats with various candies glued on with royal icing.

To give credit - I used a design I saw on the internet by "Dream Day Cakes" (and theirs was perfection) as my son loved this one!  Thanks for the lovely idea.


That is how I meditate while I eat cake!  This cake was done for a silent auction in Calgary.  All proceeds went to help a lovely family whose child requires a little extra medical attention.  I am happy to say the night was a grand success.

Buddha is a krispy treat with fondant covering and accents.  Top tier is chocolate cake with white chocolate ganache and fondant covering.  Bottom tier is a vanilla cake with orange chocolate ganache.  This tier is iced and hand painted.
