I have been asked to make an Optimus Prime cake for a 6 year old's b-day party. I'm trying to determine how best to accomplish this. I want to make a 3D cake but am not sure how to get the large transformer to stand on two legs.

Is it best to make him out of rice cereal treats? Or is there another internal structure I can use to make him out of cake and not worry about him toppling over. The cake will be transported by car to the party location 2 hours away from where I'm creating it. So that's another concern I need to take into consideration.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!

You could build the inner frame work out of pvc pipe or wooden dowls and stack/layer the cakes directly on them. You would have to do quite a bit of sculpting though. Sounds like it will be a great cake can't wait to see ( so please post pictures icon_biggrin.gif ) Good luck!
