Does anyone have (or is there already a post somewhere) for instructions for a R2D2 cake in 3D?
I've done R2 in 3d. (In my pics)
I started out with two 8 inch rounds on the bottom and stacked 3 6 inch rounds on top (centered), then the half ball pan.
I cut out the 8 incher to make his "feet"....then used to leftover cake to build up his "arms".
He's actually pretty simple to carve, it's covering it with fondant that gave me a little trouble. THen you just cut out the doo-dads.
Here's an incredible tutorial: http://www.bsideblog.com/2008/06/making-the-most-amazing-r2-d2-cake-ever/
