Android Robot Cupcakes

I'm a fan of Google's mobile phone OS, Android. I'm an even bigger fan of their cute little green alien robot mascot. I was going to bake some plain sympathy cupcakes but decided i might as well try something fun. And so i made my best attempt at a yummy edible green robot of my own.

Before i go into the details though, can i just say how much fun neon green cupcakes are? I didn't even want to frost them! They were so pretty.

I wasn't sure how i was going to make it's appendages, or how really lol. So I went to Walgreens and bought five dollars worth of green candy. I am quite frankly surprised that i didn't eat more of it then i did though. Here's a look into how i work though. On my mom's dining room table with holidays decor from both Christmas and Valentines Day. And crap eeeeeverywhere, ha.

Anyways, they turned out to be quite simple. Green tropical Mike and Ike's for the hands - secured with toothpicks. Green Apple Sour Punch Straws for antennae. The eyes were white Wilton Candy Melts, shaped into little eyes. I added green and yellow food coloring to both the batter, which was lemon and the frosting, which was vanilla.

Okay enough talk. More robots!

It was an army! haha.


Edit: UPDATE: This is the Android mascot for comparison - in case you live under a rock =p. Their version 1.5 was called Andriod Cupcake. I found this about a month and half after i made them. They kinda look alike don't they???


  1. these are so awesome!!

    did you use a specific dye that's neon green? it's pretty amazing! and do they have a pink that shade? and blue?

  2. no, i know one exists buy my wilton did not carry it. for neon green in the batter, i only used green b/c the batter was already yellow from the lemon.

    for the frosting, i used a littttttle green and then yellow. made it neon!
