    i’d feel weird about eating yoda. it’s a great looking cake but not very appetizing… kind of like the armadillo cake in steel magnolias.

    Is there a significant price difference between the two?  If not, the Yoda cake is more impressive and artistic, but not overly appetizing looking.  Does your FI have a preference?  Maybe let him pick?

    I love that you are doing this as a surprise!  You just gave me the idea for my FI.  🙂 Sorry hope we didn’t shoot you down to badly… I think they’re both cool!

    Price being equal, I would go with the Yoda!  It is awesome, especially if that is a representation of her exact work.  The other one is ok, but looks too much just like a modified version of a regular cake.

    How about an Ewok?

    Hope this doesn’t sound stupid, but I have never really watched Star Wars.  Yoda is recognizable to people who don’t know the movie.  I technically know who R2D2 is, but I don’t know if you didn’t tell me that’s what the cake was, I don’t think I would’ve known.  It is a good representation, but not as recognizable.

    For that reason, I would probably go with Yoda (but the green/brown icing does kind-of gross me out.)

    I think they are both really well done, and I’m sure your fiance will LOVE it!

    How much do they charge for each out of curiosity?

    I was joking, but the initials in the tree would be too cute and Ewoks are my fave.

    Good luck deciding. I hope which ever is delish. Question: how would you cut Yoda?
