I made a robot out of cupcakes for a student intern's last day at our office. He had graduated and was able to work the Summer until the beginning of the new semester. I wanted to make something he would like, so I chose to make this Robot from the What's New, Cupcake? Book.
If you compare this to the one featured in the book, you'll notice it is not an exact look alike. Sometimes you have to improvise, and I did that by using the yellow licorice to connect the arms instead of pretzel sticks. I also used spice drops rolled out and cut into circles as the knee caps instead of Nilla Wafer cookies.
The Robot's frame is made out of graham crackers covered in grey frosting and sprinkles. I was able to make the grey frosting by adding a few drops of black food coloring into a can of vanilla frosting.
