Transformer Cake

My nephew turned The big 12 yesterday. When asked what type of cake he wanted, he said, “Ummm, Transformers.” I was excited that it was easier than my original plan, which was the XBox One. It would have been so much work. This was the result of my long day. 

It was a big hit! He loved it. It was a vanilla cake with Italian meringue buttercream. All of it was made from scratch, with the exception of the fondant. I think this will be my new buttercream because it is nowhere near as sweet as the typical buttercream. It does well with fondant and doesn’t harden.
