Star Wars - Themed Birthday Cakes


*
*
These are Star Wars themed cakes that I found on the Internet today. I hope you enjoy looking & making theme. :) I will add the inventors personal directions on how they made their cake.

Queen Amidala


I bought the doll top (just a torso with a toothpick bottom) and a week ahead of time, made a headdress for her out of some Christmas material scraps, cardboard, spray mount, and an old costume jewelry earring from the 80's.

I then put some powder on her face, and using a thin lip brush and red lipstick, made the dots on her cheeks.

The cake was devil's food, Duncan Hines mix. I used a Wilton doll cake pan, and made my cream cheese icing and added chocolate ice cream topping to it to make it "chocolate". I bought a box of fondant, which I colored red and black to make the bodice and skirt. I referred to a picture for the design, which I got from the Phantom Menace video box.

I cut up small pieces of a gold foil doily for the detail work on the gown, and everything was stuck on with icing which I carefully applied with a toothpick.

R2 D2

We created this cake for a friend at work. It was constructed with six - 9" round layer cakes and six batches of Rice Crispy treats. We used our homemade fondant recipe to cover the entire cake and create the design elements. The cake was built on a plastic pipe armature that allowed the center body to "hang" freely from the arms. The cake weighed about 32 lbs. and was 20" tall.

Star Fighters - for each individual guest


I baked a Bunt cake that looked like a TIE Fighter ship. I only had to make some wings and it would look as if it was cut in the middle. Better though was when I remembered that I had a similar shape in a six cupcakes Bunt pan... if I made those ones there would be a ship for each guest! And that's what I did...

First I did the wings with a pattern for a TIE Fighter mobile that I got at the Star Wars website in black foam board (the thickness of the board would help them stand straight). I did the edges and radiated details with white Duck tape (I had to cut it lengthwise so it would be the right width). I attached circle stickers to both sides of the wing to finish the details and taped a piece (about one third) of straw to attach them to the cakes.

A day before the party I baked the cakes and started decorating them with butter cream icing, plain on the sides and with a star tip on the top. I decorated Oreo cookies for the window and placed them on top of the cake. For that night I left them in the fridge (just to let the icing dry) and the next day before the party I attached the wings.

The black background is made with black cardstock paper sprinkled with white finger-paint. To avoid placing the cakes on the cardboard I opened some cupcake foil and used it as a wrap for each cake. To finish the details (and most of all to make sure it looked like a Star Wars scene) I printed a logo and pasted it on the background and added a Yoda cake topper that I had previously bought. In the end everyone really enjoyed having their own Star Fighter.

Lightsaber cake

The light saber is basically five cake rolls of different sizes. I baked five different fatless sponges of different flavors (chocolate and vanilla), spread butter cream on each sheet of sponge and then rolled. For the handle I used ready to roll white icing that I rolled around the cake and then 'painted' silver using edible silver food coloring.

For the black parts of the handle I used liquorice strips that I cut and stuck on with icing. For the buttons I used 'spogs' but M&M's would work as well. For the light saber part I rolled each cake in red ready to roll icing making each one thinner than the last to get the layered effect. I placed up against each other making sure there were no gaps.

The cake was made on a long piece of plastic board that I covered with foil. I used some of my son's figures to decorate around the edges. This is really simple to make and if you can't bake very well you can buy 'Swiss rolls' in the supermarkets that would work just as well. This took me about two hours decorate plus the time it took to bake the spoon.

Awesome Yoda Star Wars Cake

The torso is cake covered with butter cream, and dressed with fondant clothing, arms, and feet. The ’skull’ is made of “brown crunch,” which is like Rice Krispies Treats. But… brown. Fondant makes up the features of the head, including those distinctively-Yoda-ish ears. (If you need step by step instructions on this or the next, then here is a link http://sandra-socake.blogspot.com/2007/04/yoda-cake-instructions.html OR http://www.greatwhitesnark.com)

Geeky Cake of the Week: Stormtrooper Star Wars Cake

The cakes BELOW can be ordered from the 'DecoPac' Website. But I will be honest with you ladies, and let you know that you can most likely purchase these at your local Wal-Mart bakery. And they may also be a lot cheaper. You can also purchase the kit ALONE if you wish to make the cake yourself at home. Therefore making your cost of cake, even more cheaper for you.http://www.decopac.com/catalog/dsp_results.cfm?r=6&s_searchthis=star+wars
