John and I are having a blast at the Star Wars Celebration here in Orlando this weekend, so I figured I'd keep the theme going with today's Sweets. (Although I'll try to keep the Admiral Ackbar jokes to a minimum.)
Major props to Donna for actually sculpting these LEGO minifigs out of gumpaste, instead of taking the easy route and plopping on some toys. :)
More fantastic figures on this sweet wedding cake:
Somebody watch the droids, though; I hear R2 is a bit of a lush.
Some of the sweetest Star Wars cookies you'll ever see:
You might think a light saber cake would be easy to make, but believe me: it's not. That's why I'm so impressed with this fondant-free gem:
I love the shading and all the detail on the handle. Truly excellent.
Hold on to your blasters, old-school icing purists, because I have another completely fondant-free sweet for you:
The background is airbrushed, but the ship is all piping. Now that's using the force.
Here's an engineering marvel you won't believe is actually cake:
But it is!
How amazing is this?!? Lots more pics and details on Lien's blog here.
This perfect R2* has me seeing red:
Go here for a step-by-step photo guide. The detail on the legs is especially amazing.
Here's the best possible use for the Wilton bear pan:
And finally, we have a new contender for the Coolest Baby Shower Cake Ever:
C'mon, baby Vader with a pacifier, PLUS a baby R2? This just might be better than our last Vader shower cake. Even if it doesn't make any more sense. Heh.
*We think this may actually be R4-P17. We think this because people who seem to know these things told us so. We could be wrong. Who really knows?
PS - Hey, Jane F. in Berkeley: Epi Burf Day!! May your day's forecast include lots of sprinkles.
