Who knew that fondant icing was such a great medium for sculpting Hutts?
(via Super Punch)
Can’t decide whether yummy or gross.
I think that’s butter cream
Great art, but fondant is only marginally food.
It looks better than the CGI abomination from the “Special Edition” trilogy and the prequels.
I agree with J. William Grantham: that’s not fondant, it’s buttercream.
The hands and eyes are probably fondant but the body is piped buttercream for sure.
Well whatever it is, there’s too much of it for a cupcake.
You think it’s funny! Well this week it is just Jabba the cupcake, tomorrow it will Jabba fruitcake, then Jabba the wedding cake and so forth. This must stop, so this cupcake must be destroyed preferably someone eating it. I will take care of that. MUNCH!
Looks spoiled, yuck!
There’s clearly a white base of buttercream between the cake and Jabba, but it looks to me like Jabba is not buttercream. There seems to be a bit broken off the top of the head. Also, the nostrils and some areas of skin fold look like they are chipped.
Based on that I’d say more likely royal icing or meringue, it’s something that sets hard.
Carrie Fisher totally retweeted this. That means Carrie Fisher reads BB. Just FYI…
I came in here specifically to see people say, it’s not fondant. I am satisfied.
That is most assuredly not fondant- It’s like you don’t even watch the trillions of baking shows littering the airways.
at first you make it seem that not “even watch”ing baking shows is bad. then say they are littering the airways, so confused. love the name though I think Tom Baker is in that episode.
