Luke... I am your Father!... in cake form

Posted by Jennifer at 10:43 PM

My step son turned 9 last week and has been telling me he wants a Star Wars themed cake since I can remember. In an effort to pull through on that promise, I tried to make a Darth Vader helmet. Turns out, that's a hard thing to do! Darth is made out of rice crispies and covered in marshmallow fondant. The dimensions of his face are hard to see because of the lighting and because he was really dark in the first place (get it, he was dark... the dark side... get it? Sorry, that was my feeble attempt at a Star Wars joke. In the words of my best friend, Rosie... I don't get it.)
Anywho, the cake to the right is a lemon cake layered with buttercream and the stars, logo, and light sabers are made out of marshmallow fondant. My brother emailed me to say that technically speaking, one of the light sabers should have been red for some nerdy Star Wars reason.... haha. So I apologize for the inaccuracies of this cake in the realm of Star Wars :) Hyrum loved the cake and the first things that went were the marshmallow light sabers. Yummy! Thank you for checking it out!

Given the cake represents the dark side, then yes, you should have had a red light saber. Other than that, pretty darn good - especially with the shiny helmet :)
