Hi all! I've never made a gumpaste figure before, but I know a little boy that really wants a Yoda cake this weekend... I am planning an 8" round cake with a Yoda topper. In all, he'll stand about 3" tall. I have to make his white robe and assemble him, but I'm worried about his face for now.
How does this look for a first try? He has one wonky eye, but I'm afraid "fixing" that will ruin the rest. Do you think this will be OK, or should I make a second attempt?
Thanks for your help!
He looks great!
He looks wonderful!
wow he looks great good job for your first figure.
Thanks! I am so nervous because it's YODA! Everyobody loves Yoda!
Half the time I look and think he looks fine. The other half I think he looks too much like Gollum from LOTR, uh-oh! the good thing is I stll have time to make the final decision... Why it's good to get started on these things early, I guess.
are you sure it's your first time???? looking really good to me
Don't change him, it looks great!
Doesn't Yoda have "wonky" eyes anyway? LOL
WOW! Looks good to me, nice job.
It looks great. No need to mess with it. Everyones going to love it.
I love it! Looks great
I just asked my 5 year old Star Wars fan if he knew who it was and he said YODA. He asked me how you did it and when I asked him if you should redo it or keep the one you made he looked at me funny and said: "Keep it! I like it!" So there you go. You have the approval of my in-house expert
Thanks everyone! And a special Thank You to Becca and your little fan! This cake is for a (turning) 4 year old Star Wars expert, so that's the most important opinion, LOL!
Looks good! Bonus points if you can make the ears move!
Oh he looks awesome! My rule of thumb is make two or three of everything--so I don't think you need to make another one to improve the first one but you really should make a second one. In the immortal words of Forest Gump "'stuff' happens".
(My cat can do yoda)
