Anway, he grew up, dangit.
As is tradition in our family, I asked him what kind of cake he wanted, and meant it not just flavor-wise. What theme or design did he want? He said, "I've had two Doctor Who cakes, an X-Files cake, and meme cakes in the past. How about robots. I'll leave it to you to interpret it."
So a robot cake. He's on the high school robotics team so that was not an off the wall suggestion. I did incorporate the KING TeC logo on the robot on the cake. I also incorporated lights! Flashing lights. When I was thinking about what to put on the cake, I searched LED flashing lights small on Amazon and sho' nuff, they had a product that would work with a cake!
|Matt and cake|
|I googled robot font and found this one that I really liked. Maybe it's too 70s, but it says ROBOT to me.|
|If I'm going to put robots on a cake, I'm going to make sure Crow T Robot and Tom Servo are two of them. And Matt likes MST3K as well, so it was not wasted on him.|
And now, I am done making hideously time-consuming birthday cakes. I will still make the graduation cake for Matt, but other than that, it'll be cake and frosting and that's it. Maybe some icing flowers or something, but no more three-day processes.
