hello robot

here is the long-promised robot cake that i made for Mr. B this past weekend, for his robot birthday party. we kept things simple this year, no major decorating and craziness - it was just more than i could handle this year!!! but i DID spend a good deal of time (always longer than i intend) on the cake. it was a yellow cake, with chocolate cupcakes for the side and top pieces, as well as the details. (mini cupcakes for the eyes, and a giant cupcake sliced across for the mouth) The frosting recipe is HERE. . . its one of my favorites. It's like buttercream, but even better!!! And I always add LOTS of almond extract. :)
