40th Birthday Star Wars Cake!

Here’s a super fun Star Wars themed birthday cake we created this week! We had such fun making this. Everything is edible from the rice krispy treat moulded Death Star to the modelling chocolate Chewbacca!

The cake itself consists of two layers of vanilla with a blue velvet layer in the middle. All layers are sandwich with Bailey’s irish cream infused buttercream… yum!

To make the Death Star we moulded the shape from rice krispy treats, iced it, added the details with modelling tools and silver dragées, then covered it with dark silver lustre dust.

Here’s our cartoon style Yoda figure which was created out of both modelling chocolate and reinforced fondant /gumpaste.

Chewbacca stands just over 4 1/2 inches tall and is made entirely out of a modelling chocolate and fondant / sugarpaste mix. To finish we hand painted Chewy’s fur with a darker brown food colour to add a little depth.

Finally, the text was (painstakingly) cut out by hand. We created a stencil of the required phrase printed out in the Star Wars font before cutting each piece out of reinforced fondant / gumpaste.
