R2D2 Cake

This is a cake that I have been wanting to post for a long time about. For Curtis's birthday this year I threw him a Star Wars party and with all the HUGE Star Wars fans out there on the web, I found so many wonderful ideas. But my favorite thing that I came up with was his R2D2 Cake, it was 7 layers of yellow cake simply baked in 9 inch round pans. For the head I made it out of Rice Krispies treats and molded them into a bowl that I had.

I bought some fondant at Joann's and used that for all the little pieces and used a marshmallow for his "eye" thingie :)

Sorry the picture is so sad, but I took this at like 2 am on Curtis's iPhone and I was ready to go to bed, thinking I would take more pictures in the morning all fancy like. Well, apparently the weight was too much for R2D2, and since I had never made a cake this big, this was all new for me. I guess I needed some cardboard layer or stick to help stable it :) hee he... well it was a learning process but I still loved it.

R2D2 in all his glory

This is what is looked like when I woke up in the morning... NOOOOOOOO
