I came up with an idea of making a Robot Pie. For this I needed a Robot baking tray. So why not make my own baking tray?
There are some images missing in this project,so please excuse as I was in a hurry to make this and missed out some pictures.
I know there are loads of people who are addicted to instructable just like me.I am sure this robot is also a favourite of yours.So please don't forget to vote for it once it comes up in Piecontest ,and full spectum laser contest.(if it is accepted)Thank you ......
Step 1: Requirements for Robot Baking Tray
Step 2: Get Started With the Template
Alright let's get to the template.Fold the paper into two and draw half of the body of the Robot in a piece of paper. The size you draw will be the size of your robot baking tray. It is up to you to decide how big you want. I have drawn 11 inches in length ,so the pie is going to be the same size.Cut out the template and open it out .
Draw the head ,legs,and wheels seperately and cut them out.
Step 3: Make Robot Tray 1
Once completed I realized that I have forgotten the Robot's hands. Oh! My poor Robot.you need a pair of hands to send me the prize pack. I am sorry I have to do a small surgery to get your hands back. See image 8 after the hand surgery. He has got a pair of hands. Perfect
For the wheels I used a lid. You need to roll the barbecue foil around the lid as that is thicker than the kitchen foil.Now wrap a piece underneath and cover the whole wheel with the aluminum foil.
Step 4: Robot Tray 2
Step 5: Ingredients
2 cups of all purpose flour
125 gr cold butter (chopped into pieces)
2 table spoons sugar
1 egg yolk
2 table spoon iced water
For the surgery :)
Little Icing sugar and butter -not in picture
Step 6: Make Crust
This rich shortcrust pastry is for sweet pies and tarts.
Place two cups flour into a food processor with 125 grams cold butter,chopped into pieces,and two table spoons of sugar. Process until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.Add the egg yolk and iced water and process until mixture comes together,adding more water if necessary .Wrap with cling film and chill for 30 minutes.
To make by hand
Sift flour into a large bowl ,add the chopped butter.Rub the butter into flour with the fingertips for 3 minutes or until mixture is fine and crumbly.Stir in sugar,egg yolk and water,mix to a soft dough.make into a ball wrap with cling film and chill.
Step 7: Roll and Fill Trays
Flour your table top,grab your dough from the fridge (after 30 minutes) and roll .The easy way to put it to the tray is by taking the dough to the rolling pin and shift it over the tray.
Now this is the most difficult part to insert it inside the tray because the Robot's legs and hands are small. Carefully press the dough on the tray edges.The second tray I pressed the dough with a fork -this is just a fancy idea -skip this.Cut out a round and insert it into the wheels.
Step 8: Bake
The legs and wheels are missing in the second crust, they are baking.
Step 9: Surgery
Step 10: Filling and Decoration
1 tin peach
A new painting brush
Edible icing coloring black
Step 11: Peach Robot
Use the new painting brush to give an out line in black with the edible icing colour.
Cut three rounds of grapes and place it on the body,and also cut the grapes skin straight and decorate as shown in the images.
Finally cut two more bigger pieces of strawberries for the ears. Cut a tooth prick into two small pieces and prick the strawberries and attach it as ears. This part you have to do it slowly if not the crust will break .
Step 12: Filling and Decoration 2
3 Raisins -not in picture
balance peaches. (used only 1 slice)
Step 13: Mandarine Robot
Step 14: Robot Treat.
I got the crust recipe from a recipe book.,and the idea is my own.Comments welcome ...
Thank you for taking time to view my Robot pie.
