Later this year, Global Geek News turns the big 10 and in all that time, I don’t think I have ever posted a picture of a geeky cake that is wearing a tuxedo. This kind of surprises me a bit considering how many wedding cakes and grooms cakes I have posted in the past. While a small cake like this certainly isn’t as awe inspiring as say the 500lb life size Darth Vader cake I posted about a few years ago, it is still an incredible looking R2-D2 groom’s cake. I’ve never seen R2-D2 look so handsome!
This spiffy little tux wearing R2-D2 groom’s cake was created by Utah based Salt Cake City. As for the delicious details, R2 is covered in a marshmallow fondant and features a satin ice sugar flower which combined with the bow tie match the wedding colors.
Of course I’m sure everybody knows my feelings about fondant by now (yucky!) but you can’t argue with how good cakes look that are covered with fondant. Perhaps someday there will be a recipe for it that will make it taste as good as normal cake icing. Until then, just give me an ugly cake! Anyway…
I don’t know who the happy couple was that got married but congrats to them for not only finding love but for finding the droid they were looking for! May the Force be with your marriage!
