I didn't get any, Tim! My husband is the 'official' picture taker at birthdays and since he was cutting into his own cake at the same time that Trevor, my grandson was cutting into his, we didn't get any pictures taken of either one. :o(

That's such a WONDERFUL story Linda... I smiled all the way though it! My only other question is... Do you have any pictures of you cutting into this cake...? I for one would LOVE to see them!

To me, it was horrible. My 21 year old grandson wanted it for his birthday so he helped me with it, and he does not have great time management skills (he likes to 'get in the zone and stay there'), so we were up until about 3am still working on this cake, and I still had to get up in the morning, clean the house, along with the cake mess and cook a birthday dinner. Not to mention, I had already made that beer stein cake with the brat, pretzel and pickle earlier in the day for my husband's birthday cake too, so I had that mess to clean up as well, so I really was about ready to throw in the towel by the time we had dinner. But, as you can see, I did it!! Yay!! (by the way, the rice krispy treats kept getting soft and the arms seemed to bow in a little). After the dinner was over though, it really was rewarding to see both my husband and grandson's faces as we sang happy birthday.

Hi Conny, I had my husband cut me out a 6 inch round circle out of plywood (for the cake) and then two or three 4 inch circles out of pine (for the base), and then he used his nail gun to staple all of the wood pieces together so that I would have a 'cake stand' to cover with black fondant.

Linda what is the black peace under the robot? Is that also cake?

I made R2 for my sons yestereday too.  I think I stayed up till 3am for 3 nights in a row working on it.  I too ran out of fondant but didn't have the money or the time to get more.  i ended up piecing it together on the legs.

Thanks everyone. While making it, I ran out of fondant, and had to send my hubby on a mission to quickly find a store (ended up at Hobby Lobby) that was close and open to purchase more. What a wild day and night that was! The cake was for my grandson who was turning 20, and he was a real stickler for detail. He helped with the placement of all the pieces. Plus, I had to make my husband's birthday cake that same day too! His was the stein cake that I have in my pictures.
