I did R2D2 for my husband's birthday-but it didn't look as detailed as that one. Wow!

That cake is AWSOME. I did one for my daughter and it was small and covered in buttercream. How I would love to do a large on in fondant. I have done a few Darth Vader cakes covered in fondant.

this guy is in another universe!! my jaw is on the floor-first the imagination and know-how just to concieve that you could do that and then the doing part (and that was the second time-i bet he did it faster or better or tweaked it somehow)!! mind-blowing- i would just love to sit there and watch and soak it all in...hmmm

does anyone have a rice krispies recipe? When I did my pillow cake with the bottle on top, the bottle was rice krispies but when they would get room temp, they would get soft and droop.

I'm amazed at his detailed execution! Everything looks so neatly done! I consider him among the top group of cake decorators.

Amazing! Did he only use a cake board under the top 4 tiers??

I wonder if you could shape/cut the rice krispie using a heated knife to get very smooth, sharp edges... icon_rolleyes.gif

Exactly what I thought. Everything is so precise. This inspires me to be more detailed. Thanks for posting it.

WOW!
I love that he posted the instructions. It doesn't look that difficult once you break it down. Of course I could never be that precise!

I second that!!



My guess is he used a router like used in woodworking and very dry firm RK treats.

This was just way cool. My youngest son is having a Star Wars theme this year, and he said "THATs MY CAKE MOM!!!!" guess I'll give it a shot hopefully it comes out kinda nice. Not till Jan, but planning now. Thanks for posting this one. icon_lol.gif

My son must never ever see this cake. He would flip out, and then want me to recreate it! Beautiful work!
