This cake is a vanilla bean sour cream cake. The cake layers were brushed with a homemade caramel sauce and iced with a caramel-butterscotch buttercream. Yum!
I've only put this icing on chocolate cake previously but I think it works as well (if not better!) on vanilla bean cake.
The bottom tier is an 8" cake and there is one layer of a 4" cake for a top tier.
The cake is topped with a number of Star Wars Lego figures.
The planet is a 6" Styrofoam ball covered in a blue and yellow marbled fondant and brushed with ice blue lustre dust.
A Star Wars Lego republic assault ship tops off the whole cake.
Happy Birthday Marcus! I hope you enjoy your cake!
