This is my 1st sculpted cake, made in August 2010, of Yoda's head. I've been making cakes since the beginning of August of 2010 and am loving it. I've always loved to cook and have been watching cake shows and challenges and wanted to try and see if I could make a sculpted cake. I chose Yoda as my subject. I am an artist and am self-taught when it comes to fondant and cake sculpting. After I made this cake I started taking cake decorating classes and have completed the beginner buttercream course. The head is red velvet cake and the ears are rice cereal. I covered it all in green fondant and detailed/carved it, adding the eyes and eyelids separately, and then hand painted since I do not own an airbrush, yet! After making this first sculpted cake I have found my passion and it's making cakes!
