October 2009: My Nate, like many 6 year old boys, was obsessed with Transformers. He had been asking for a “Devastator” for over a year. It’s a giant transformer made out of 6 smaller vehicles. Pretty awesome. 🙂 For his cake he wanted “Devastator, but not with fondant, just all different colors of icing”. Nice. I did a little research and decided to try a buttercream transfer. I printed out a picture of Devastator, covered it with saran wrap and used black icing to trace all of the lines that made up the transformer. And a large transformer made out of 6 smaller transformers has quite a lot of details!! Then I filled in the spaces with colored icing and stuck the whole thing in the freezer. Then I baked and frosted the cake and flipped the frozen decoration onto the cake, peeled off the saran wrap and Voila! DEVASTATOR!!
(I wish I could add in the video of Nate opening his gift… guess what it was!)
