I made two tiers for this Star Wars Birthday Cake. I covered each tier with buttercream and trimmed it with buttercream. In order to create the fondant men I bought store bought fondant because it molds easier for me than my homemade recipe. I also used cookie markers for the details.
I started with the heads and rolled the shape. For the legs I used my fondant roller to create the Lego leg look by rolling it in the middle. Each man is held onto the cake with a tooth pick in the back. This cake was easier than I had anticipated, but I did start days before on the men.
My son loved his 7th birthday cake!
