I was asked to make a birthday cake for a little girl who turned 3. She is basically the coolest girl in the world. She chose "robots" for the theme and black and yellow for her party color scheme. Apparently she has an imaginary robot friend. SO. AWESOME!
They asked me to make an "Instructables Robot" cake... which I had never heard of before. So, below is an image of the instructables robot. I used it as a guide in making the gumpaste robot. I really wanted a kid-friendly cake. So, I covered the cake in gumpaste gears that you could actually spin! It was a tricky process since a lot of the gears broke as I was testing them. But, after some trial and error they turned out really cool and really spin-ny! :)
|I love this picture because it captures one of the gears in action after a good spin!|
