R2D2 cake

This weekend we celebrated Lil' E's 7th Birthday.  Going along with the Star Wars themed Cupcakes we made this R2D2 cake.  This was a fun cake to make.  It is made from 3-6"rounds, and a 1/2 ball cake pan.  The cake itself was alternate layers of White Sour Cream Vanilla Cake and Chocolate Cake with Cookie n Cream filling.  This go around I even made my own marshmellow fondant.  It turned out great and was just as easy to work with.  Who would have thought.  Man I have been spending way to much on the other stuff.  It only cost me about $5 to make 6 lbs.  Wheras the other is about $4-$5 a pound.
Thanks for looking!

The arms weere made out of Rice Cereal Treats that were covered in buttercream and fondant. 


I can't believe Lil' E is seven years old.
