    So I figured I'd post this in Radicons, as there's no Radicon Gourmet Section!

    This " Gee Wun Caketimus Prime" was made for the 2009 TFW NH lake bash, as both a Bash Cake, and served as a belated birthday cake for both Lupis Convoy and Optimist Prime, and for transformers in general ( 25th anni!)

    Total build time was 6 hours ( 3hours prep time, 3 hours fondant building)

    Built by myself 3B and Mrs. 3B

    Materials
    3- 6" x 9" Triple chocolate fudge ( Duncan Heinz) cakes
    2 boxes of industrial fondant
    half a bag of powdered sugar ( to work the fondant like Playdough)
    1 Box of concentrated food coloring ( We started with white base fondant)
    half a box of Double Stuffed Oreo's chocolate cream filling.
    1 can of buttercream frosting
    6 toothpicks

    Pro's: Fondant tastes like Marshmallow! Lupis and Optimist's facial expression when i said it was for them!

    Cons: Poking holes in cookie/fondant rims, and the smokestack and gas tank attachment!

    to answer some questions.

    1. is fondant easy to work with? Yes, after you get the color right. just roll it out and cut it up, use lots of powdered sugar, and just wet the seams to close it in.
    2.Faction symbols? I wanted a cake top logo, but nobody had the symbols in stock. that and we ran out of red!!! :( 
    3. Yes it was delicious!! just the trailer fed a group of 12+ people. now just the cab is in my freezer.

    I do wish i had more time to go full detailing, but i got to a point where i knew if I kept working on it I wouldn't want to eat it. Next one I do will be a bit more planned out, but you can't beat the fact that we didn't really plan for it at all till 11pm the night before.
