The Ultimate R2 Cake

Posted 15 Aug 2008 at 15:42 UTC by steve Share This

Via Craftzine, we noticed a B-Side blog report on the most amazing R2-D2 cake ever (actually, it's red so I don't think it's an R2-D2, maybe an R2-D1 or something?). Anyway, as edible astromechs go, this one is pretty cool. The body is made of many levels of red velvet cake while the legs were cut from giant Rice Krispy treat blocks. Once assembled, the whole thing is coated with white, red, and silver icing and all the expected details are added. There's a nice photo sequence of the R2 cake being assembled and of the actual presentation at a kiddo's birthday party. The cake was made by Mark Joesph Cakes in Brooklyn, New York.
