Star Wars And Safety Collide With This R2-D2 Helmet


Jenn Hall took time away from decorating cakes at Whipped Bakeshop so that she could apply her talents to creating this awesome R2-D2 bike helmet. Speaking with Geekadelphia, she explains how the two activities are related:

While I owe a lot of my pastry decorating skillz to stuff I’ve learned at Whipped Bakeshop, I think for this project I used my own mad artist skillz, which is really the force that binds everything I do. That said, it actually is comparable in size to a lot of the cakes I work on at the bakery. While I was measuring the different components, I thought to myself, “I feel like I’m measuring pieces of fondant for a cake right now.” I guess if I ever make an R2D2 cake (Would someone please please please order an R2D2 cake, PLEASE?!) I might think to myself, “I feel like I’m making a helmet right now.”

For a step-by-step on how the helmet was made, check out Jenn Hall’s blog.
