Hi Yo!! I just wanted to say thank you for just being you! I love watching you every week! And I love how genuine and real you are! Anyways… for the BB-8 cake, how many people does it feed? I’m making it for a friend who loves Star Wars.
Thank you for inspiring me to go big when it comes to cakes and my dreams!

Thank you so much for posting this. I made this for my wife and it came out amazing! Your video was hilarious too, I think you and R2D2 have a good relationship going on.

You are amazing! This will be my first fondant cake ever and I wanted to go big or go home for my son’s 8th bday:) One request I have is that it would be great if you could please offer your recipes in a printable version without all the pictures? Thanks for giving me the confidence to be a cake artist, too. I probably would never have tried if it weren’t for your detailed recipes and videos.

You are amazing! I have only discovered you recently but WOW! I am hoping to make this cake for my partner’s 40th (just to remind him that he is still just a big kid :) ) Would it work with your vanilla cake recipe?

I made this cake for my son’s 40th birthday…..he’s a Star Wars NERD!!! to say the least. It was quite a hit, and it almost hurt to cut into the cake (especially after working on BB-8 for about 24 hours!) Thanks for all the directions and help on the video. Couldn’t have done it without you!

I excited to try this for my son’s birthday next week. He would like vanilla instead. Would I use the same amount for your vanilla recipe? Wonderful and entertaining video, btw!

Thanks so much Princess Londa for the tutorial. Mine was not as detailed as yours, but it came out well for a couple of cake Jedi in training.

Hi! I love this tutorial! Thanks for sharing your talent! BTW I saw another BB8 cake tutorial and it doesn’t measure up to yours. Yours is soooooo much pretty and perfect! Your details are so beautifully executed. You make it seem so easy…. that it makes me want to try it. But I’m wondering…. how many servings will this cake provide?

For some reason I can’t see the answers to the questions, since I have to ask one again ,sorry. What do you use on your base board? I had. Thought of piping gel then cover in raw sugar browns sugar, butterflies with crushed vanilla wafers or Graham crackers. Am I even close?

Hey! I’m so excited, I’m about to order all my supplies for this cake. A friend requested it as a surprise groom’s cake, and your tutorial is SO amazing, I just have to try my hand at recreating it! Woo!! Here goes!

I was wanting to tackle this cake for my husbands birthday but wanted to see if you think your vanilla toffee cake would work for a good supplement. He’s not a big chocolate cake fan

Thank you so much for sharing this. You could easily have sold these instructions for a profit. How very generous of you to share your gift with everyone. I’ll be attempting this for my son’s 13th birthday in a couple of weeks.

Just found your video. I don’t know if I will attempt this cake. I’m intimidated by all the details. However, your video is excellent..and extremely entertaining. Thank you.

Making this cake right now but I found that I only needed about 0.8lb of batter for the 5" half sphere and about 3.7 lb of batter for each of the 8" bowls, if I followed your instructions, the batter will overflow. Are you sure about your measurements of the batter needed to fill the bowls? I wonder why it will not work for me.

Hi – I am just about to put fondant on this cake for my son’s party – and now Winter Storm Juno is heading our way so the party is postponed. Can I freeze it before I put the fondant on? Or if I put the fondant on will it keep for a week? Should I refrigerate? Thanks!

What did you use to make the “ground” under BB-8?

This is one of my favorites, besides the Bob the Minion cake. I was wondering if you could make a video for young learners like me and how to work our way up to your level of cake mastery. I love baking and you are very inspirational!

Princess Landa, YOU ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD. Your skills are at mastery level and to help train other Jedis is commendable. You are more of a Yoda with the way you pass on your knowledge( just way cuter and funnier). Cake Master, You are. Mad Skill, you possess. Thank you for a great video.
