Instructions
Roll gold fondant to desired thickness and lay on cake drum or board; use poly blade to trim. Using the poly blade, detail the board with lines and knots. Brush the fondant with gold luster dust.
Roll the gray fondant and roll the gears texture sheet over fondant. Cut pieces to cover sides and tops of cake. Stack cakes on board and brush with silver luster dust.
Mold gears in chocolate candy mold then paint with luster dust mixed with grain alcohol or lemon oil. Attach to cake using piping gel. Roll a thick piece of copper fondant and cut a number. Detail the number using the poly blade as you did the cake board. Once number is hard, attach to gear with piping gel.
Robots: Use wooden skewers as the main supports in the legs. Use different cutters and shapes to make the main robot parts. Arms and legs are done by using the clay extruder and wrapping extruded fondant around 18 gauge wire. Paint pieces with luster dust mixed with grain alcohol or lemon oil.
