    My birthday was yesterday and to celebrate I had a Hot Rod cake. I had got the idea from the cake that appeared at the 2010 TFcon. At first I was going to have a carbon copy of that cake, but I thought that cake in my opinion was based on the bankable version of the character. Let have my cake based on the unbankable version - the magenta or fluorescent colors one. So I sent the "blueprints" to the cake make, and yesterday I got this.

    As I was told the flame and ensignia had use wax paper because the they would try and break any other way.

    Looking back on the final look, I really wish I had insisted on black for the flame outline instead of red. As for the taste, the cake itself had has a rather funny taste like heavy soy or something. The icing while the orange and yellow taste great, the magenta is a different story. There's just something about pink icing that cause it to taste bitter. I mean linger on your tongue for about an hour bitter. And the magentas used here were no exception. That was something I feared. The strangest thing about this is that I seem to be the only that takes notice to this. Oh well, that's pretty much the cake in a nutshell.

    Looks great at first, but leaves you disappointed and with a bitter sensation? Sounds like Rodimus! =P

    The cake looks fantastic, I'm sure UltraPrimal will be pleased he's started a trend!

    You could eat it with icecream to dull the icing taste, I guess. Get some black sesame ice cream for a firebolt motif or a lemon-sherbert and blue-raspberry sherbert matrix.

    Happy belated birthday, man. I hope you went "Light our darkest hour!" when you lit the candles. :D 

    Next time, I'd recommend taking your blueprints to a baker who can pander to your choice of ingredients, too.

    It's funny you should mention that, because late last night a friend of mine brought me a small Reese's peanut butter cake that appears as black and white. So I guess that would be Firebolt.

    Thanks everybody.

    Very nice! I'm impressed with how well the Autobot insignia came out. I would expect a typical cake decorator with no TF experience to mangle it beyond recognition, but they did a great job.
