Robot Birthday Cake

Today’s cake is so ridiculously adorable, prepare to be smitten!  It includes all of the little details you expect in a cake… like nuts and bolts and gears and metallics!  It’s a charming cross between the oh-so-popular steampunk trend and good old robot fun.  Created for a man who enjoys building robots out of scrap metal, this birthday cake features all aspects of his hobby.  From ‘metal sheets’ of fondant and hand-shaped gears to the incredible robot topper.  Just wait until you see this little guy!  He’s holding a mini-mini cupcake and he’s going to steal your heart!  Join me in oohing and awing over another spectacular creation by Yeni Monroy and her team at Dream Day Cakes®!  It’s a fabulously modern Robot Birthday Cake.

Fred from Dream Day Cakes shared a few thoughts with us about this design:

For her husband’s (Alberto) birthday, one of our favorite clients wanted to create a special cake.  Alberto loves building robots out of scrap junk, and she thought a cake highlighting his hobby would hit the spot.

Yeni created a two tiered topsy-turvy cake with a gear/pipe style.  One of my favorite parts of this cake is the fondant “wood” base.  It’s one of my favorite things she does and I thought it contrasted with the metals perfectly.  Of course, I’m very biased. =)

The gears were all hand-shaped, as well as the robot, name, etc.  The cake itself had different patterns and shades, simulating a metallic siding or paneling.

Of course, the robot needed that small splash of color in his birthday cupcake. =)

    Yeni and Fred are creative geniuses! Working from a nebulous idea I had, they delivered above and beyond anything I could have dreamed of for a cake design. The most amazing thing? It tasted GREAT! We are addicted to the homemade from scratch taste of real ingredients. Thank you for being SO AWESOME!
