I like to make a fun cake for my kid's birthdays. And I let them request whatever they want, and try to make it happen. Most cakes have been easy, or I have found help online. This year my son wanted the Millennium Falcon. I talked him into R2D2 since it was the day of the birthday....and it had to be easy. And so here you go-a super easy R2D2 cake:
I put one cake in two round pans and one cake in a rectangle pan.
Please ignore the part where I clearly did not have a steady hand when applying the frosting.
And there you have it. I definitely am not a "fancy smancy" cake baker. I have never used fondant. Nor do I want to (it doesn't taste that great)- and I often use a cake mix. The kids don't care. They loved it. They want the same cake next year.They had the best time eating it, and said I was the best mommy ever. I call that a success.
Thanks for reading!
