Piece of Cake!

The Star Wars Edition of Dear Inner Demons continues with good ol' R2D2. I thought it would be appropriate to follow C3P0 with R2D2 considering what great pals they are, despite how C3P0 treats the poor little guy.

One of my first memories of seeing the iconic image of R2D2 was actually from when I was super duper young and my Mum and her pal made me an R2D2 CAKE. I will eventually track down the actual photo of said cake (I'm sure it's in a photo album somewhere) and post it here, but to give you an idea of what I'm talking about, here's the Wilton pan form you could get (and probably still can):

Here's what looks to be the way they sell them now:

And here's an image I found on the internet of what I'll bet was the original packaging and you can see how the cake would come out:

That is very very close to what the cake I had as a child came out like.
