Steampunk Robot Cake


IMAG0099There are few things that go together better than Steampunk and Robot. I LOVED making this cake! This was my first order via Instagram (follow me here: @groovycraftchick) for a local client who is very into Robots and all things geekery.

The first step was to get appropriate colours for the robot – I used (again) my favourite food colouring spray by Duff:

The two things I loved the most about this cake, was the bow-tie on the Robot, and the key.

The leg actually cracked on the robot, but at the end, I thought it looked way cooler that way, so I wasn’t too worried about it. Such a handsome fellow!
