These 25 Stunning R2 D2 Cakes will have you and your belly drooling over tasty manifestations of the cutest character (sorry, Ewoks) in the Star Wars franchise. Yes, your belly will be drooling, but I’m pretty sure that it never stops salivating, given its need to digest the trash that you give it. If you can’t pronounce the ingredients, don’t eat it. That rule applies to everyone except me, since I can’t pronounce anything right.
Hence the blog, and hence the non-existent series of webisodes that I made and deleted after watching. It’s just not as good as iCarly, and I don’t know why? Regardless of the fact that I’m weeping in the reminiscence of my failed escapades of Christmas past and Christmas future, (how is the Christmas future guy SO HUGE? He’s probably the offspring of a giraffe…)
I hope you enjoy these 25 R2 D2 Cakes and the cups upon cups of geeky design concentrate that they boast.
R2-A3 Incorrectly Named R2-D2 Cake
Obviously, Mark Randazzo is not aware that the (delicious) red velvet R2-D2 cake he created above is actually a stunning representation of an R2-A3. He called it an R2-D2 cake, so I put it on the list, and it’s definitely worth a look over, since it’s one of the most professional Star Wars cakes out there. Tres, you have a boss name. Too bad you’re 4, or we could be friends.
R2D2 Cake By Debbie Goard
This R2-D2 Cake is probably delicious, since it was baked by Debbie Does Cakes. And if you “do cakes,” I’m assuming that this is your thing – you’re a baller at making delicious cakes. I just need to say that R2-D2 probably doesn’t appreciate the few extra pounds you gave him – feeling a bit chunky, my robotic friend? Better get back to rolling on that treadmill – low fat oil FTW.
Geeky R2-D2 Cake By Newsums
Newsums baked this stunning R2-D2 cake, which ended up winning the 2008 Star Wars cake contest! (Wow, that’s a really old cake… do you still want to eat it?) I’m not sure if the Star Wars cake contest is a big deal, but it sure sounds impressive! Just like those “Smile Experts” at the grocery store and the “Sanitation Engineers” that pick up my recycling. SHOOT! I left the caps on those bottles! *Runs down the driveway and slips on a patch of ice*
Bad Jokes About The 4th, Delicious Cake
Honestly, I have no idea who baked this geeky R2-D2 cake, since it was randomly mentioned in a post about the 4th. 4th of May. YOU DIDN’T KNOW THAT THAT WAS NATIONAL STAR WARS DAY? Anyways, this cake may have been made by a secret agent, or perhaps by Obi Wan Kenobi. On the other hand, Count Dooku is also a fan of delicious cake, so I wouldn’t put it past the old man.
UPDATE: The cake baker has been found! Sound the horns! Thank you to Gary for identifying this Secret Agent baker … Dawn Wilson! We are eternally grateful for your masterpiece, Dawn!
R2-D2 Wedding Cake
What makes a Star Wars wedding even geekier? An R2-D2 wedding cake. Don’t agree with me? I don’t care, because you aren’t the person dressed as a rebel pilot in their wedding picture, are you? (I’m the scout trooper, because he looks like a boss.)
That Doesn’t Look Like R2-D2
This R2-D2 cake looks like the one I made earlier, except better. It may be a fail, but I got eaten by the bear. You know the old adage, right? Always go camping with really slow runners so you can feed them to the bears if you’re being chased. Of course, I like you as a person, but… it’s good to feel safe from the attack of wild animals.
Coconut Creme R2-D2 Cakes
R2-D2 plus coconut creme equals deliciousness and geekiness. Glitter glue plus me equals a HUGE mess that’s going to take my mom forever to clean up. No, I don’t live with my mom, but I sure as heck call her whenever my house needs a good cleaning! *Starts putting glitter glue on face*
R2-D2 Cake By Angie Castle
I appreciate Angie’s take on R2-D2: she, instead of wasting time building a 3D cake, just had a major frost fest and made something almost as cool Good job, Angie, and good job people who ruined it with their forks and knives. “It was for a child’s birthday party.” Little cretins! BANSHEES! “Calm down!” *Leaps out of chair onto the table*
R2-D2 Flattened By A Bus
Don’t get me wrong, this is a great R2-D2 cake, but it makes the little Astromech guy look like he got hit by a bus in a Loony Tunes episode. Still delicious, still stunning.
R2-D2 Has His Head On A Silver Platter Cake
This R2-D2 cake is wonderful because it’s literally his head on a silver platter, and because it has a working LED. Yay for being realistic!
Awkwardly Placed Birthday Candle
This R2-D2 birthday cake is awkward. Why? The candle. Look – we’ve all seen the underside of our robotic friend, and there’s nothing there. No need for the candle, gramma.
R2-D2 Cake With Jutting Metal Piece
Was it necessary to add this jutting piece of metal to the R2-D2 cake? No. Was it a good idea? Definitely! As long as people don’t run into it, knock over the cake, and ruin the entire wedding because those candles fall over and set the room on fire. But, it was still a good idea.
R2-D2 Cake By SugarLipsCakes
You may have made a geeky R2-D2 cake, SugarLipsCakes, but I would like to contest the claim that your lips are made of sugar. Why? Because they would melt, and then you would have no lips. Thus, even if they were made of sugar at one point, they aren’t anymore. Or they don’t exist. Am I going off on a tangent?
Stunning R2-D2 Cake Creation
The Cake Works has created this amazing 3D R2-D2 cake, but I’m not sure what kind of cake it is… let’s just say it’s rainbow and call it a day. Or an evening, since this is probably a glowing rainbow and we can see it better at night.
Is a 7 Year Old Child an Infant?
On Dawn’s Flickr page, where she posted a picture of this awesome R2-D2 cake, she calls her 7 year old child “baby.” I guess it makes sense when you don’t think about it, but… don’t you think that poor kid’s embarrassed? Maybe, maybe not.
R2-D2 Cake for Jacob
Jacob, you should remember that you’re one lucky son of a gun. That R2-D2 cake is an awesome piece of geeky design, and to be exposed to that at such a young age… is priceless. This has to be in one of those MasterCard commercials or something! I’mma call ’em right now. *Grabs a phonebook*
R2-D2 Cake Presented To George Lucas
Charm City Cakes made this R2-D2 Cake especially for George Lucas and his team, and they loved it! I’m not sure if they decided to eat it, but they had a presentation in some really large, empty room with dim lighting. Creepy? Definitely. Star Wars – esque? Definitely. Do I like rhetorical questions? Yes.
R2-D2 Cake With Working Light
This R2-D2 cake appears less realistic than some of the other ones that we’ve seen, but it was probably not made by a professional company. Instead, it was probably put together by the sweat (ew that’s in my food?) and blood (disgusting) of a hardworking American mom! Don’t quote me on that, by the way.
Traditional R2-D2 Cake for Manuel
More of a practical approach to making an R2-D2 cake, if you ask me. This is an easy design for you to copy if you have a little boy to surprise with a delicious treat! Or you could make it for yourself, since you live alone in the dark and don’t have any friends. *Slowly puts piece of cake into mouth*
R2-D2 Cake – Only His Head Is Left…
The guy who made this cake knows what he’s doing. If you look in the picture to the left of the dome cake, you’ll see that it used to be more than just a dome. To cherish the memory, he put the dome into a glass box. Laser alarms and pressure sensors? Probably.
Driskill Hotel R2-D2 Cake
This R2-D2 cake is one of my favorites. The proportions aren’t messed up, and the blue is a little bit too light, but that’s okay since the shade displayed above is pretty much my favorite color. Other than pink, of course. The Driskill Hotel made this and posted the images on their blog.
Mini R2-D2 Cake
I only have two problems with this geeky cake – one, my name isn’t on the board. Two, I would probably eat the entire thing in one handful, since I never use silverware. A real life Neopolitan Neanderthol? I think so, friends, I think so. But where I come from, America, we have those everywhere.
Flat R2-D2 Cake
This R2-D2 cake looks very similar to another one that we saw previously, but I guarantee you that it’s different. First place in an Eye Spy competition every time, so don’t contest me on this one. I’m training for Where’s Waldo right now, and I’m becoming a beast of no mercy.
Oh No It’s Number 24!
Alas, we have but one cake left on the list. *Silent weeping* JUST LOOK AT THE CAKE AND ENJOY IT!
Surprise! R2-D2 and C-3PO Cake!
Never have I seen more beautiful midriffs than those I see above. Geeky, sure, but it’s also true. Well, that’s #25! I hope you enjoyed the list!
