My 5 year old loves the Transformers. He has all of the Rescue Bots, but Optimus Prime is his favorite. I mean his absolute favorite! He pretends he is Optimus pretty much all day, and K is Bumblebee (and happy to fill that role!).
So for his 5th Birthday party, we did a Transformers theme. His invitations, decorations, plates, his shirt, and his cake were all revolved around the Transformers.
Daddy is a Chef and has some experience decorating cakes so this was definitely a job for him. We decided making an Optimum Prime cake shaped like a truck instead of a robot would be the easiest. I don't know all of the ins and outs of his cake making process, but I know it took forever and he used fondant and regular cream cheese icing that he made. And the trick to making the colors really pop is using a gel food coloring.
So here are the pictures of this awesome cake!
