My son turned 8 this week and he’s a big fan of the Star Wars universe. Today we had a Star Wars themed birthday party with goodies like: Yoda soda, Vader water, Wookie cookies, Jedi Starfighter pizza, Jedi training school and of course a cake!
I baked a chocolate chip cake and decorated it with blue rolled fondant, Star Wars logo and light sabers.
I’ve nominated you for an Inspiring Blog Award – Congratulations!
Thank you 🙂 So sweet of you.
Your site is just beautiful.
The star wars themed cake is great – im sure your 8 years old loved it just as much as my 31 year old husband would :).
hi your really nice werk that is amagec to me i love you and i love your’ iadea
How do you get the logo so perfect? Did you use a cookie cutter or cut by hand with a knife? When I try to cut the fondant with a knife it drags the fondant or the sides are not smooth. Help please.
I made some card board templates to cut after. The fondant will not drag if you let it dry for 10 -15 minutes before you cut it.
HI LOUISE , I LOVE THIS CAKE ! MY SON IS 9 AND ALSO A HUGE STAR WARS FAN ! I WOULD LOVE TO TRY THIS FOR HIM , MY ONLY QUESTION IS HOW DID YOU DO THE LETTERS ? WAS IT FROM CUTTERS OR DID YOU MAKE YOUR OWN STENCILS ? THANKS , MICHELLE
Michelle please find a link in the comments to the special Star Wars font that I used. I printed it out on paper when I had the right font size for the letters (check the cake pan that you will be using) Cut them out and then transfer to more sturdy paper. Remember to let the fondant dry for 10-15 min before you cut them out using a very sharp knife. It is also good to add a little tylo/gumtex powder so that they will hold the shape.
THANK YOU LOUISE . ONLY AFTER YOUR REPLY DID I READ ALL THE OLDER COMMENTS AND REALIZED I WAS ONE OF MANY MANY PPL ASKING THE SAME QUESTION ! THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND YOUR REPLY ! YOU ARE AN INSPIRATION !
You’re welcome Michelle 🙂
yikes , typed my full name in error , pls edit if you can . thanks !
Great cake. How did you keep the letters from warping? Also, did you use a stencil to create the letters?
Just let the fondant dry for 15 min before cutting with a sharp knife 🙂 I used a special Star Wars font (find link in one of my other comments on this post)
