On UK tv last night there was a programme called Ace Of Cakes, where they made a life-size R2-D2 cake complete with r/c rotating head & lights. This was delivered to Skywalker Ranch for the Clone Wars season 2 wrap party.
I thought it was pretty impressive. Anyone else see it?

I gather the dome is now kept in the Lucas archive.

Would love to have seen that. That's really detailed, and cool they put electrics in it as well. Thanks for sharing Cool

Ace of Cakes is actually not that far from where I live. I called one time about a cake. You need over a years time to get a cake and they can be close to $1,000! Must be good cake!

Wow wtf 3years, thats about as long time as you have to wait for a ferrari!! But this is for a cake. Yeah they must be seriously popular. I think shows like Cake Boss boosts them as well though. Even though that r2 pretty much beats anything I've seen on Cake Boss.

It was on 'Really'. It's not a channel I've watched before, but I was told about the programme by a friend.

I'm not surprised, I've heard of people paying 100's for a fairly standard 5 tier wedding cake. Some of the one-off novelty pieces they produce must take a lot of work to design & make.

I've been the Cake Boss store. I did it for my wife's Birthday. We bought a cake that could practically fit in my hand and it was $60. They had premade full size cakes well into the $100s and that was just regular stuff (not custom)

BTW - 4 hours to get it. You had to wait on a line
