After 1.5 years, and close to the 300hrs the cake baking robot is finally finished.
The goal of this project was to use a large project to force myself to learn the basics of robotics, and I absolutely have learned the basics of robotics throughout this project. Here are some of the resources I used to learn robotics, and buy stuff from.

Frame work was built mostly with parts from Actobotics.
Most of the programmming was learned from googling it, and asking the community for help. It was surprising how little programming I actually ended up having to do on this project. It was mostly plug and play when you find the right code.
