Making a Yoda Cake

last month we made a Yoda cake as a surprise for a groom. Sometimes it gets hectic in the bakery, but I did manage to take some process photos. 

 Yoda's body. Looks like a formless lump! This part is all cake.

Yoda's head. In order to get as much detail as possible, I made the head out of rice cereal treats and carved it into the general shape. I then sculpted with white modeling chocolate. Once it dried over night, I covered it with fondant.

 Here's the final Yoda. His ears were by far the trickiest part! The hands and feet were also made from fondant. As with any complex cake, a lot of time is spent figuring out how to construct the cake and what media to use.
