Today we finished up our cake project , me and my husband that is . Our son birthday is tomorrow . And he has Star Wars birthday theme , he wants a R2D2 birthday cake . What a request !! LOL
So , couple of days ago we made the cakes , to freeze them , that way it will be easier to frost and also less job to do within 1 day . Made about 6 – 6 inches round cake , and also made the head too . But we ended up using just 4 cakes , i used 5 lbs of buttercream icing , as a glue for the fondant that goes all over the body and the head . For the arms , we used rice krispies . And frosted that too and then wrap them with the fondant . It was quite interesting decorating this cake . We really didn’t go into too much details , but i still think it looks pretty cute . My husband did an awesome job decorating this cake too , i think our son is so lucky to have a dad who’s willing to help with the birthday cake project !!
