We had a Transformer birthday here not long ago. I thought I’d follow up my cake post with a few sugary pics.

042 046That’s Optimus Prime, Beast Hunter’s edition, on a chocolate cake with blue and red frosting and half a container of silvery sugar crystals. I used a big square Wilton pan and gel food coloring in blue and red. And in case it isn’t clear, those are flames approaching our hero. Wavy piping with little points poking up, to go with the flames. I was a little critical of it but the kids seemed happy. There were a lot of blue smiles at the end of the afternoon!
