adventures in gum paste & buttercream

Here’s my first attempt at Yoda.

I know I need to work on his colouring. It is hard to make Yoda green! But tis a start. Funny how my migraine faded once I started baking. Hmm…

Now who’s going to eat him. I don’t like icing.

  1. It is adorable! I don’t think I’ve ever seen Yoda look that wide-eyed and happy before.

    Yoda, what a large “lightsaber” you have….

    BAP: Thank-you! He does look a little wide-eyed, doesn’t he? I think that’s because he was starting to melt. ;)

    Fearless: Knew that was going to be your comment. It was made before the body though, need thin out perhaps.

    Can’t help it, it’s the biggest part of him, it’s disproportionately huge. Or maybe he’s compensating…

    yeah, well, as i said, first attempts.

  6. I love icing! Consider him eaten (except he is too cute to eat).

  7. I know, he’s still in my fridge in a ziplock bag. The cupcake is long gone. :)

    I hate to be critical, but Yoda looks like a cuter greener happier healthier version of Gollum. I praise your attempt, though. I have ZERO talent at molding/shaping things.
