Chewie!!!
post #152 of 415
I did a rocketship cake for my (at the time) 3 yr. old. I also didn't have the nerve to upload this picture for all to see. The rocket turned out just fine. It was the hideous passenger that I couldn't stand. It was supposed to be the Jimmy Neutron character from Nickelodeon.

Two days before, things were moving along great, I had experimented over and over making his head with playdoh before I had the guts to go ahead and make the head with fondant. To my amazement, I did a pretty good job. I spent hours on the arms and, being the perfectionist that I am, made sure that you can see every detail in the hands and fingers. The arms were perfectly proportionate . . . what I failed to do, was download pics. of his whole body rather than just his face.

The day of . . . everything was coming together the way they should . . . I put the figure together, assembled him in the cake (in the spaceship) and realized that I had made his arms way too big for his body!!! OMG! Anyone who knows this character knows that Jimmy has gimpy arms! I had totally created a Buff Jimmy Neutron Character on Steroids!! Ah, well - too late now, but my son was able to identify who he was, thanks to the great detail on his face & hair . . . but to top it all off . . . here's the kicker . . . I had three mini ice cream cones at the back of the cake where I had put the sparklers . . . (don't ever try this) . . . the cake LIT ON FIRE!! Well the ice cream cones anyway. Undoubtedly the worst creation ever!

Hi again, Chewbaca is so funny, it is so ugly that is cute at the same time, and it has a face only a mother could love icon_biggrin.gif but the happy smile is contagious icon_lol.gif BTW, excuse the ignorance, who or what is a Chewbaca? I have never heard of it. Is it a cartoon or movie character?

Chewbaca is from Star Wars, I think. I'm not a huge fan on that series, but I do know that he is from that! And he talks really loud and funny, too. Like a dog growling.

Is it me, or are most of these cakes not that bad? Especially Abby? You guys are more talented than you are giving yourselves credit for!

I think we've found the love child of Dora and the Russian...

Now here's mine. I was so proud of my first gumpaste flower (why orange? No idea...), but had not yet learned about leveling the cake (or smoothing the frosting)!

My worst cake (so far, anyway!) was a Tonka truck cake for my son's 3rd b-day. It came out more like a jalopy than a dump truck, and I joked with my mom that it looked like it was straight from the set of that old TV show Sanford & Son!

The crowning touch was the black construction paper wheels I used because I didn't think to use cake scraps cut appropriately. The black paper absorbed a lot of the grease from the frosting. Yuck!!!

Ladies, you haven't seen anything until you have seen, scary old lady arm pooh bear.
The first time I was working with rice crispy molding(saw it on youtube and thought hey that looks easy). and I didn't exactly cover the sculpture enough to hide the bumpy texture of the snap crackle and pop. (partially because I ran out of fondant.)
oh and don't forget I had yet to learn how to support my cakes. So I was thinking, "how heavy could this pooh body be" I threw the bad boy on top of my cake and watched in horror, as like the titantic, the honey pot began to sink ruining my up until then rather smooth fondant job. Then poohs eyes begin to melt. I ended up with something that looked like a Macy's day balloon deflating. God horror after horror after horror.
