build a ROBOT cupcakes!

Originally uploaded by hello naomi

I might have to make some of these cute robot cupcakes I found on Flickr, via Thimble. Their creator, Naomi, bills herself as “a post graduate uni student who programs robots to play soccer by day and a ‘cupcake ninja’ by night” and has the most fabulous collection of insanely decorated cupcakes I’ve ever seen. Fellow geeks may also appreciate the Space Invader cupcakes.

So for the robot cupcakes – do you think you simply use marzipan to which you’ve added food colouring? Of course, to really make these perfect you’d want to use those edible googly eyes that Evil Mad Scientist figured out how to make.
