Tomorrow I'm decorating a cake for my nephew. It's R2D2 sinking into a swamp. Actually, it's just the top part of his dome, so it looks like he's almost under.

Any ideas on what to do for the swamp? R2D2 is the cake (1/2 soccer ball on top of a 9" round), and the bottom (swamp) is a 16" round dummy (1" thick - from Michael's).

All I can think of is ucky green/brown icing slopped on (not perfect and smooth). Anyone else?

The movie had all that smoke rolling over the swamp....maybe you could do some cotton candy and spray it to a gray color?....or something with a 3D smoke-like texture?

you could make some sort of swamp grass. A few blades of thick/wide grass coming out of the swamp. Maybe cluster of a couple of blades together.

IDK just a suggestion. icon_smile.gif I don't really remember the movies. My husband loves them and I always leave the room when he watches icon_lol.gif
