"r4" R2D2 Star Wars Cake

The red portions are modeling chocolate mixed with a little Satin Ice red fondant. I had a dear friend who helped me a TON on this, and I couldn't have done it without her!

(Oh, and I finished it off with a beautiful light pink and light green ribbon around the base after i took the photo.)
