I made this cak e in January for a friend’s grandson. It is Rose’s all occasion downey yellow butter cake filled with vanilla whipped cream ( stabilzed with gelatin ) and iced with white chocolate mousseline buttercream. Last year I made him a yoda cake, which was extactly the same flavor combinations ( loved it so much that they wanted this one to be exactly the same ) The little guy has quite the obsession with star wars.
This one completely stressed me out!!!! I don’t think I want to do anymore character cakes.
I am only posting it now because I only now figured out how to send pictures from my iphone to my computer. I am a slow learner.
The R2D2 is made from rice krispies and covered with fondant, which caused me nothing but heartache. I really hate working with fondant!!!! I’d much rather use buttercream. I don`t mind fondant accents but dread covering anything with it. Besides buttercream is so much tastier than fondant.
