R2D2 Cake

Here is the cake in progress. The body is made up of white cakes filled with a lemon cream cheese filling. The round top is also a white cake, and the legs are made with rice crispy treats. They were then crumb coated with buttercream frosting, and finished off with a lemon flavored marshmallow fondant.

Here he is all finished and ready for Alex's birthday party. He was definitely the hit of the party!

I can't believe you haven't been decorating cakes for years and years! Did you have to put any kind of support between the layers or add dowels or something to keep the weight of all the layers from crushing the lower layers?

This is an absolutely fantastic cake. Duff watch out!
You should seriously consider competing if you haven't already.
