May the 4th be with you...

Okay, this cake was actually made for September 4th, but I couldn't resist the Star Wars Day reference :)  This Artoo cake (A resourceful, spunky and adventurous astromech droid according to was made for two sweet brothers celebrating their birthday this past weekend.  They are Star Wars fans and so their Mom requested this cake to help make this celebration day a little more special!  The cake has a bottom layer of milk chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling and a top layer of vanilla cake with white chocolate ganache filling.  The legs are made of Krispy Treats.  All fondant covering and accents.

Two things I have learned from this cake adventure is that 1) R2D2 is a really fun cake to make and 2) I know far too much about Star Wars, thanks to my own two boys who are Star Wars obsessed :)

Party time at Sweet N Sassy!

It was a lovely night for a lovely Birthday girl's party.  This cake was a design courtesy of the Birthday girl herself.  She had some great ideas about how she wanted her cake to look!
