yumbots!





I had a good excuse to bake. I had yumbots to fill! Thanks to a dear old pal, I am now the proud owner of 4 cute-as-can-be robot cupcake molds.
"YumBots are happy to serve mankind. Just fill their cubic heads with cake batter and set your oven to “stun.” In a few nanomoments you’ll have an entire squad of scifi cupcakes. Made of high-tech silicone and built to last, each ‘Bot has a rotating head for extra android action. Four ‘Bots in four assorted colors in each appealing display box. Klaatu barada nikto!"
I wish I had a shot of these 4 little guys in the oven ... I didn't realize that I should have baked them without their feet. They all toppled over near the end of their baking time, heads removed from bodies. Very horror movie style. Out they came, headless and upside down. Their cake brains stuck to the pan. So, of course, I had to make the icing look like brains ... 'cause these are Zombie Robot Cupcakes!!

Except these zombies, I get to eat!!

Update! Here's a robot cupcake being eaten ... went straight for the BRAINS! nom nom!

~Caren, who is eating cake today
p.s. I used the Devil Food Cake recipe from New Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook (1981, 1985 5th printing version). YUM!!!

  3. Running the compressor of the above room air conditioners involves high electricity consumptions and
    bills. It"s tough to keep things dry on a center console boat. There are so many great places to go while you are there.
