Does anyone have an R2D2 picture they can email me?? My mother in law wants me to make my brother in law an R2D2 cake for his birthday next week. I was going to do a FBCT but can't find a good picture!

OR, if anyone can give me directions on how to shape a sheet cake. I don't think out of the box very often and find it hard to improvise! ha.

I did an R2D2 cake, it is in my gallery. It is far from perfect but it might give you a start...
Also do a search in your web browser, it should give you tons of pictures! Have fun!

Here's another idea......what if you baked 3 or 4 small (4"???) cakes and stacked them up with a 1/2 ball on top and you would have a 3D R2D2.....

...just and idea....

I just did an R2D2 this week. It should be pretty easy to shape a 9x13 pan. There are directions for decorating the R2D2 pan here on CC, that may help some.

I just googled pictures of R2 and many of the ones I found were just head shots. The best picture came from a hasbro site, but the actual picture was chopped in pieces and I had to cut and paste quite a bit to put it all together.

There are some very good R2 cakes here in the galleries as well - some from the pan and some 3-D ones also.
