This is my nephew's transformer cake for his 8th birthday. Nicolas is mad about transformers so this is what I came up with. Just incase your wondering what those red balls are on top, they are candle holders I had some long black candles to go in them and they do a good job at keeping melted wax off the cake!
The flames are all made of fondant, I put some sparkly edible glitter on the tips of them all but you can't really see it in the photos. The truck on top is a store bought Optimus Prime and boy are they tricky to 'transform' unless your an 8 year old named Nicolas of course!
I cut out a fondant number 8 to go with the flames and stuck it on the top of the truck with a bit of sugar glue. Nicolas also had a little party in the park with his friends so I made cupcakes for that with my personalised cupcake toppers!
