First time doing a 3D was tons of fun!  Thanks to SquirrellyCakes for all of her advice...I couldn't have done this cake otherwise.  Three 6x3 round Chocolate Mud cakes (thanks boonenati & auzzi) with WBH Cookies & Cream filling.  BC icing and MMF accent decorations.  My DS loved it!

I really wanted to use my new ice cream cake pans so I had to have a dome shaped cake, so I went with R2-D2 and the Death Star.  The cakes were yummy, if a little dorky looking, but my son loved them and they were really quick.

For my great-nephew's birthday.  4-6" layers, all torted, and half-ball pan for the top, iced in BC with fondant details.  Rice Krispies treats frosted in BC for the "arms".  If I ever do another one, I will cover the "arms" in fondant - the BC did not adhere well at all, and I could not get a smooth look.  But the birthday boy LOVED it, and that made me happy!

2 Strawberry box mix cakes made in two 6 inch rounds, a glass bowl with 6 inch diameter, and a 9 inch square pan. Wooden dowels (my son wanted to use the whole bag of dowels while I turned my back to tend to a younger brother... finally stopped him on the third!) through the center to stabilize. Arms were cut out of the square cake and "pinned" in with bamboo skewers. Marshmallow fondant over all. I used a Skittle for his red "eye."

This was my first cake for a non-family member.  The bottom cake is a plain vanilla sheet cake sprayed with blue and dusted with glitter.  For R2D2, I used a tombstone-shaped "Over the Hill" cake pan.  Then I outlined the details for R2D2 with black gel.  All buttercream frosting...I smoothed the frosting on R2's head, and painted it with silver and moonstone luster dust.  I used a picture of R2D2 as a reference, since the details on most of the cake instructions aren't as accurate.  And kids will notice :)

I made this cake last night.  I was up til 2:00 am.  I had to transport it to work this morning (1 hour drive).Once I got here, the cake had fell over.  I had to slightly slam on my brakes during traffice to avoid hitting the car infront of me, and that is when I lost him.  I was devastated!!  I made him with 4 8 inch cakes and used a bowl for his head.  His arms are made of  rice crispy treats.  I made sure and supported him well, but it still didn't make it.  : (

This is my second R2D2 cake.  The first one I did two days prior.  The first one, collapsed on my way to deliver it.   I slightly slammed on my brakes during traffic and it fell over.  I was so upset!  I was lucky that the party wasn't for two days, so I made another one and just put it together at their house.

Got this from the scene in Star Wars Episode 3, I think. Used raisins for the rock look. I didn't thouroughly mix the food colring in the blue icing to give it a cloudy sweep look as well as the brown icing to give it different tones.  My little 3 year old Jedi loved it. All buttercream

This is R2D2 from Star Wars.  I made this for my son's 9th birthday.  I also made it in 2005 for his 7th bday.  He had a sleepover with his best friends from school & they all loved this cake!  I was brave enough this time to do the zig zags.  I should have done a crumb coat because you can see some chocolate cake showing through, but I was very busy & this was done rather quickly.  I do think my colors were better on my 2005 version.  It is The Cake Mix Doctor's Darn Good Chocolate Cake & everyone loved it

This is my attempt at R2D2 for my son's 3rd birthday.  It is three 6" layers with the ball pan half as the head iced in BC.  The arms are rice krispy treats wrapped in fondant.  The blue "lines" on the body are WAY to big but they were already glued on so I had to modify the bottom design.  All color details on the body are fondant.  I got many ideas from R2D2 photos in the galleries, thank you!

I'm not a big starwars fan, so i wasn't too sure about decorating details, so i just tried to keep it simple. the birthday boy was happy with it, that's all that matters :)

The lady wanted this done as is in the Wilton Yearbook and it really did look just like the picture she provided. Not a big fan of the start tip technique, but it is easy enough at least!

I made this for my hubby for Father's Day.  A lot of mistakes but I figured it would give someone an idea for their Star Wars fan.  He really got a kick out of it.  I had the Star Wars theme (from listening samples) blasting when he came in to see it.

Another one of those cakes orders where I can say that the design has been retired!  Had difficulty transporting these and faulty support system... learning experience but I wish they had turned out better.

Here's my version of R2D2.  He's made of red velvet cake with cream cheese icing and mmf details.  The arms are rice crispies.   He was a bit of a challenge for me.

This is my first "3D" cake of 6" rounds of WASC with rice crispie treats for the "legs".  All covered in butter cream with fondant accents.  The boy this was made for told him mom to tell me "WOW!"  I took that as a compliment! :)

The base is half chocolate, half vanilla. R2D2 is vanilla. The robot is entirely edible, no styrofoam used. The silver and bronze effects were made by brushing with Luster Dust mixed with vodka. TFL.

This is for my son's 7th birthday.  R2 still needs 2 cherry halves on his head, but I won't put them on until the day of the party.
