Whether you’re planning a strictly science themed party, are getting all mechanical with robots and gears or completing a mix of the about, this robot cake is a perfect way to celebrate another birthday!
- Cake (I used a box mix but homemade is just as good!)
- OREO cookies
- Mini Donuts
- Red and black icing
- Large marshmallows
- Food coloring
- Gum drops
First, bake your cake in your 13×9 and allow it to cool completely. Use a serrated knife to level the cake top and cut to the shapes shown. Rearrange the pieces to make the head, body and feet of your robot and lay on a large cookie sheet or cardboard covered in foil. Frost in the colors of choice. Slice donuts in half and place them to create connectors for neck, legs and arms.
Use candies, OREO cookies and icing to decorate your homemade robot cake.
Tip: place OREO cookies in microwave for 5 seconds and twist to remove cream on one side. Cut a large marshmallow in half and add to each side of the head and use toothpicks and gum drops to make an antenna.
Once complete, place your homemade robot cake, front and center at your birthday table!
