The cake is a simple yellow cake. The icing is caramel and was created stir in flavor packet and canned frosting. Before frosting the cake I cut 2/3 off the top and used it for the body. I also cut a narrow sliver off the body to use for his feet. Everything but his cupcake hands came from a cake made in a 9x12 pan. His hands are made from two cupcakes. Oh! and his ears or head bolts are made of a cupcake cut in half.
I used the same cake mix and frosting combination to make his his cupcakes that I later used to make his cake. The robots also had the same licorice mouths. These mouths were a lot more serious than the one on the cake. A food maker was used to draw eyeballs on the Skittles. Marshmallow were cut in half to make the robot's head bolts or ears.
I didn't buy special bags for his treats instead I used plain zip lock bags. They were so easy to seal and parents didn't have to deal with ribbons and party bag. They weren't pretty, but they were functional.
Into the bags I placed a thank you card for coming to the party, a robot sticker book, robot stickers, fruit chews, and two fruit strips. I didn't what to include candy or plastic trinkets The moms in the treat bag post had said they didn't like to see them in the bag.
The parents seemed pleased with this and so were the kids.
