Well, I made the Yoda cake, as planned. I was only working with a 9x13" cake because it was a small party, so I drew it out on paper and then cut around it. I carved out and added cake to give it dimension in the lips, eyes and ears. I ended up using marble eyes instead of trying to create them out of gum paste or fondant. Everything else is butter cream icing.

Personally, I think it came out looking ugly...but then...how cute is Yoda? Not very. Just totally awesome.

I posted a picture of it in my photo album on here.

Hopefully that link works...


By the way...I'm in the first trimester of being pregnant and the cake was SO ugly that I couldn't bring myself to eat it. Everyone else was impressed and said it tasted great.

Not my best work...but it was a tough challenge.
