Android KitKat cake

My husband’s birthday rolled around and it was time to make a cake that he would never eat (he doesn’t like cake – it’s a texture thing), so it had to be particularly impressive.

As soon as I decided to make an Android cake (we are a Droid family) I went out and bought the white frosting (lesson learned from the Enterprise cake), and green icing. While I was at the store, I passed by the candy isle and Kit Kats caught my eye. My husband loves Kit Kats! Maybe I could throw some mini wrapped chocolates in his present box.

On the ride home it hit me: KIT KAT IS THE NEXT DROID VERSION!!!!!!!!!!!!! And so the idea was born: an Android KitKat cake.

My husband was very impressed, and everything was perfect except for the fact that his first instinct was to pronounce “Stevroid” as “Steh-vroid” (it was supposed to be “Steve-roid”). He destroyed all my excitement then… but not all the way! I’m still mighty proud of this one!

The design was easy: google-image the icon for Android and mimic it as close as possible.

The hard part: I used canned icing for the green. If you’ve ever played with these, they don’t come out “smooth,” but intead they come out as spaghetti-like strings of icing. Trying to get it to look smooth took some creative techniques. So what I did was put a butter knife to a lighter, and heated it up. Then used the knife to smooth out the green areas. It turned out pretty well, but the knife gets cold very fast, so I had to do this multiple times. The icing kept sticking to the knife. Perseverance paid off.

Everyone loved this one! One of my master achievements!
