This Fabulous BB-8 Cake was made by Cake Rush Bakery in the United Kingdom. This was the first BB-8 cakes to be made and placed on cyberspace for all to see.
BB-8 is ready to roll onto the screen of the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens. We all wonder, where did this new droid, BB-8, come from? On which new adventures will he take us?
BB-8 appears on a desert planet, that looks much like Tatooine, where a Star Destroyer has crashed.
As The Force Awakens premieres, I can’t wait to see where BB-8 will take us as the droid rolls along on the surface of the desert planet and flies in a star fighter.
This cake was made before there were any toys or models out for people to see the detail of BB-8, so the baker did their best guess on detail based on the movie trailer. They did a great job considering what they had to work with. Now the BB-8 toys are out, so we can see the actual details of BB-8.
You can even get your own copy of BB-8 that will roll around that you can control from your smart phone.
The Nerdist has a nice interview with the bakery about the cake. The cake was made from two half circle cakes covered in ganache and attached to a disc of Rice Krispies Treats in the middle for support. A support structure also runs through the cake to give it stability.
