I’m Jenna from SAS Interiors. My website and blog is all about Interior Design, so it was fun to break away from the ‘norm’ and change it up a bit today by sharing a fun R2D2 cake that I recently made. Thanks Kellie for having me here!
My son’s 5th birthday was a few weeks ago, and he asked me to make a Star Wars cake. At first I had no idea what I was going to make, and then it hit me ~ R2D2.
- 1 – 8″ round cake pan
- 1 – 8″ x 8″ square cake pan
- 2 boxes of cake mix ~ I used vanilla
- 2 containers of vanilla frosting
- blue colored food dye
- a small paint brush and a little bowl
- a knife
Prepare your cake batter according to the box instructions OR you can make batter from scratch. The square cake pan will definitely hold one box of batter, but you may have some batter left over from the round cake pan. Throw it away or make something else.
1. Bake your cakes (according to the instructions) and let them cool.
7. R2D2′s head is a gray color. I separated a little bit of icing and using food dye, I made a grayish color.
For the red dots on the head, I used a few colored sprinkles
For the black lines on his body, I used some black decorative icing
For the 3-D dot on his head, I used a clump of icing and shaped it like the inspiration
