I made this BB-8 cute robot from chiffon cake for dearest Joash and one of my closest mummy friends! Previous years I made the Lego and Transformers Chiffon Cakes. In fact the Lego chiffon was one of my first cakes when I started out so there's a lot of nostalgia and I had to try making BB-8 when he requested it. I realise I still haven't posted my Transformers cake! =p
The BB-8 shape is obtained by combining two bowl or ball pan cakes, and the top was from a 5-cm cake pop mold. It was quite a pain to cut and stick on all the details from sheet cakes as you can imagine, as there were no cutters for the patterns! =p Just imaging lots of small stripes and circles.
It was a labour of love and thankful cake for well-received! May you grow up to be a wonderful boy who loves God!
With lots of love,
