My little boy turned 5 earlier this month, and although I will eventually have a post which includes all of the details of his party, I think his cake deserves a post all its own. Austin requested a Star Wars party this year and what better way to do so than with a cake shaped like R2-D2.
R2-D2's body was vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream. His legs were molded from rice krispie treats, covered in white chocolate and then covered in fondant. All decorations made from fondant and gumpaste. He was a lot of cake and took a lot of time, but so worth it!
