OPTIMUS PRIME FOR COOPER M.

I made a Transformer cake tonight for a Birthday tom.
It turned out good I think.
I used Ding Dongs for the tires, Ho Ho's for the side tanks.
It is All cake! I used 7 square cakes.
Made and frozen the day before.
Then cut them up tonight.
I Silver dusted the exhaust pipes, grill and knee guards.
Pearl dusted the grey fondant windows.
Covered 13 separate pieces of cake with fondant.
I made some of the fondant pieces 2 days ahead
to dry
(hands,the head, helmet, exhaust pipes, gun and grill).
NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!
I still have to write Happy Birthday Koda
on the body of the cake.
This guy turns into a diesel.
"Optimus Prime"
Cooper was in my Primary Class this year.
He is an amazing kid!
Very educated in the gospel.
He always knew all the answers.
He is just turning 5!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KODA!!!!
YOUR AWESOME!
I am really going to miss having you in my class!

I showed my big kids this morning and the first thing out of Jaden's mouth was Oh MY she HAS to make my cake too!! I didn't let Coop see-he knows you are making a transformer cake-but I wanted the real thing be a surprise-I can't wait for you to bring it over!!!! Thanks again-YOU ROCK!
