R2D2 Cake and Bunny Baby Shower Cake!

Christi (Maxton's mother) said that Maxton absolutely loves Star Wars and his favorite character is R2D2! He also collects R2D2 figurines and have posters all over his room. After knowing this about Maxton, I knew that I had to make an R2D2 cake. At first I was going to make a carved out cake of R2D2 (like as if R2D2 was lying on the cake board) but then I thought that making R2D2 standing up would definitely make Maxton super happy when he sees it... and I knew that the extra work and effort put in to that cake will make it worth while. Christi wanted to see the cake as soon as I was done with it so I sent her a picture message of the finished product. When Gabe and I delivered the cake, Christi was overjoyed with the finished product and Maxton was very happy and surprised to see his cake! So here's the final product:

The flavor of the cake is yellow cake with chocolate icing.

Hang needed a baby shower cake for her co-worker who's having a baby girl! The top tier had to be sugarless due to a special request from her co-worker and they thought of having a baby bunny cake topper. The baby bunny is dressed up in a baby girl dress and she's also wearing a pink and white baby headband. Intricate piping work was done all around the cake. Hang was super excited when she saw the cake and loved the baby bunny!
