It is that time of year again at our house.
February is the first month of the year that has a birthday at our house.
Little Dude is turning 9 and when the time came for him to look through my cake books and choose a cake he went for it and picked a robot cake!
This book is awesome!
There are so many ideas and shortcuts to awesome cakes.
The first thing I had to do was go out searching for all the candy needed for this guy.
I don't live in a huge town so I had to make some substitutes for the candy I couldn't find. For example BottleCaps for Razzles and Mini M&Ms for the Jujubees.
If I didn't tell... no one would know!
I followed the directions in the book except I made my cake instead of buying store bought pound cakes.
We chose green instead of blue. (I am of the opinion that blue is not a food color. Just a pet peeve!)
Once it was frosted it was time for assembly.
Head, arms, ears, neck.
The all important lollypops added.
Frosting dots. I didn't like the little points that the frosting tip left so how to fix that?
Yeah, Yeah, he is legless!
I did it on purpose, I swear.
There are 6 people in our family. This year we are not having company over for cake so I left the legs off because really...
isn't this enough cake already?
I didn't want to be too wasteful!
Look at the kid!
He doesn't care that his robot has no legs.
He is happy as a kid can be!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIDDO!!
