After taking off a year of decorating cakes because of Andrew, this cake was a fun one to get back in the swing of things! To relaunch my bakery I decided to run a giveaway and by chance, cousin won a discounted cake just when she needed one for her son's birthday. The party theme was Star Wars, which I happen to love since I am geeky and I haven't done one in while. With me being home all day with Andrew, I knew I was going to have to prepare what I could when he allowed me to. I did most of the decorating in the morning while Jack was able to watch him and I could just focus on finishing it in time for us to leave for the party. I made a chocolate fondant to color black so I wouldn't have to use so much food coloring, plus it tastes delicious! The lettering I found an image on Google and used it to trace it on the white fondant using an X-ACTO knife. I cut out the shapes for the Stormtrooper free hand, but referencing an image, and lastly, the lightsabers were rolled out colored fondant that I sprayed the handles silver and added colorful buttons. I finished the cake off with some stars using different size cookie cutters.
I created this blog to share my creations with hopes that it will inspire others to show their creative side. I love to show case my friend's photography so a lot of the photos are from her. I hope you get inspired.
