This cake is one of my favorite ones I've done in awhile! It was a vanilla
buttermilk cake with brown sugar buttercream which is a combination I haven't done before (and it was yummy!)
Yoda was handmade with gumpaste and I was a little bit worried that I wouldn't be able to pull off making him. I was happy with the end result though... although if I am to be my perfectionist self I could say that he looks like a baby Yoda... but I won't do that this time!
The Christmas tree was made with rice krispie squares covered in fondant and decorated with silver lustre dust and strings of silver fondant (garland) and red and blue balls of gumpaste.
The Star Wars lettering and the stars on the cake were done with fondant. The Christmas lights (and plug!) were made with fondant and stuck into a string of buttercream. I think the Christmas lights were my very favorite part of this cake!
A TIE fighter and an X Wing made from fondant painted with black food coloring were added to the back of the cake.
I think this cake ended up looking almost as good from the back as it did from the front!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
