I will be doing a R2D2 cake in early July as a groom's cake. I found a link to do this, but have a question. I want it to be as close as possible to the original but am not certain what to do to get the outline of the shapes. Should I cut thin pieces of fondant to create the rectangles? Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks.

I just used fondant cutouts on the R2D2 I did. I used various online pictures to get a decent closeup and pretty much just did it freehand.

HTH,

Did mine freehand too, using pics I found on line and a couple of r2 toys my kids had.

Is he going to be standing? What are you making the "feet" out of? Just curious. The one I did is in my photos....I am going to try and include it in my post but not sure if it will work.

Thanks for the input - I really appreciate it.

I was thinking of using rice krispies to create the arms and for the base that it sits on, I am thinking of using a styrofoam dummy.
