    Taste would likely include flavors of cardstock, wood, possibly metal, chewy mostly tasteless sugar and then some cake. In most cases these cakes are a lie.

    #1, Why would R2D2 taste like Chewy?

    It’s technically a cake, but really, it’s a marzipan sculpture. Has anyone ever tasted one of these things? Are they worth eating, or is it just piles of generic yellow cake encased in marzipan?

    I’d like a piece of the eye, please. Or perhaps the extendable date port-thing.

    #2: #1 was funny, ’till you came along and . Winner.

    @#3, it’s probably covered in fondant, not marzipan. Some of it even tastes good.

    @#4: “extendable date port”? Is there some SW droid porn out there I’m not aware of?

    Should have been “data.” R2′s best work can be found on Roboporn.org. Little guy is always sticking his thing in strange computers. I hear he’s quite the popular tool at cylon parties.

    I recently made a cake based on this one. He gave a recipe for marshmallow fondant that was very easy to make, and quite delicious. My 7-year old son and his friends loved it! (So much better than store-bought fondant, and much less expensive too!). I have to say, though, that the frame made out of wood, etc. was unnecessary. I made mine out of two supports on the bottom (foil covered ceramic mini loaf pans), with a flat plate at the base with the cake on top. You could also use covered 2×4 scraps cut the the right size, covered in foil, then covered in fondant.

    #5 you are right it was fondant. It was the cake my wife got my 35th birthday party. She got at Mark Joseph Cakes in NY. It was actually quite tasty; chocolate cake with a chocolate “mousey” cream underneath the fondant. I have a bit of a sweet tooth, and this really tasted good… even 3 days after the party.

    The only “problem” was decapitating R2 in front of my friends in order to serve it. I felt like Darth Vader blasting him in the trench outside the death star.
