Axe Cop Cake

Axe Cop Cake

For my nephew Nathan’s sixth birthday we decided on an Axe Cop theme.  Axe Cop’s favorite food is birthday cake with a candle of himself on it, so I took that as my starting place for the cake.  Here’s what I came up with. Watch the video to see the robot arm holding an axe, inspired by the robot who lives in Axe Cop’s moustache.

The cake is lemon-flavored, so it’s Axe Cop – with lemon!  (If that doesn’t make any sense to you – read this.)

The cake topper is gum paste with axe candles in his hands.  The gum paste comic panels around the sides are all of Axe Cop’s team members with their catch phrases.  The gum paste heads are bad guys heads that Axe Cop has chopped off.

Axe Cop also has a robot that lives in his moustache and hands him weapons at need.  So I made robot arms holding a chocolate axe and concealed them inside the cake.  Right before we served the cake, Nathan flipped the switch and the arm smashed dramatically out of the cake.  Sadly, the chocolate axe broke on the way out, but I had a spare on hand for the photo op.

  2. I just have to comment. I found your blog years ago and was amazed at your gruesome cakes- fabulous! But I must say that you are so very talented that I hope you get an offer for a show on cable! You aren’t surrounded by an entourage who does a lot of the work for you- *cough*Duff,Buddy*cough*- from what I read you do the majority of it all and you do it so beautifully and with such an eye for detail! I hope your family and friends realize (i bet they do) how lucky they are to be the recipients of your fantastic work! Bravo!!

    • Thanks! You are correct that I do the work myself, with occasional help from my sister. And believe me, if Food Network were calling, I’d be answering!
