Star Wars is one of the world’s most famous and popular movie series. With that said, it’s no surprise that so many children and even adults request Star Wars cakes for their birthday parties and other significant life events.
If you are met with a request for a Star Wars cake, it’s understandable if you feel a bit overwhelmed and unsure of how you’re going to make it happen. Rest assured, however, that creating a Star Wars cake isn’t as difficult as you might think, especially not if you check out our excellent Star Wars cakes ideas.
Try Making a BB8 Cake
One of the most popular characters in the Star Wars Universe right now is BB8, a robot. So, when it comes to Star Wars cakes, don’t be surprised if you get a request for a cake in the shape of this character.
Fortunately, making such a cake isn’t all that hard. As mentioned, BB8 is a robot, so you could easily use a basic robot mold, decorated in the right colors, to create a decent cake.
Of course, if you want something a bit more elaborate, you could go with a stacked cake to represent the character.
There are also BB8 molds available, though you may have to do some searching online to find one that works for you and your baking skill level.
The Right Cake Topper For Star Wars Cakes
Not everyone is artistically inclined to produce a cake in the shape of a Star Wars character or whatever other fancy cake ideas out there.
Fortunately, you don’t have to be an “artiste” to create a cute Star Wars cake. Cake toppers can come in handy for dressing up a simple cake.
Follow an essential mix, ice it, and then add in the right topper. Since Star Wars has been around for so long, you should have no problem finding all kinds of toppers.
Get toppers that say “Star Wars” or toppers that feature characters or even whole scenes. With a little bit of shopping, you should find plenty of cake toppers to fit the bill. The only hard part will be narrowing it down to the right cake topper or toppers for your particular cake.
Give a Photo Cake a Try
One thing you may not know is that any photograph can be superimposed onto a cake. There are bakers out there who specialize in this kind of thing.
Photo cakes, unfortunately, are not cheap by any means, but if you’re willing to pay, you should find a baker in your area who can get the job done.
Once you’ve found a baker for your Star Wars cake, all you have to do is look for a great Star Wars still or picture to put on your cake. Buy a photo online or print one off the internet. If you want, you could even go with an autographed photo and give the real thing as a gift. Talk about a perfect pairing.
You can actually buy an edible print system and print your photos at home!
Try Toys for Your Toppers
There are tons of Star Wars toys on the market. You can choose from vintage toys or newer toys – whichever suits your fancy.
These toys, no matter what type you choose, work amazingly well as cake toppers. And, as a bonus, once the cake is eaten, the toys can be given as gifts to the recipient of the cake.
You might think this idea is only for children. While children ARE sure to love it, there are many adult collectors of toys and action figures out there, too. So, you might be able to get away with using this simple hack with adults as well.
Write a Simple Message in Icing
For an effortless way to craft a Star Wars cake, make a basic cake and then write a Star Wars inspired message on it in icing.
A popular choice for these types of cakes is spelling out “May the Force Be With You.” You could also do other phrases like, “Luke, I am Your Father,” or one of Yoda’s famous sayings.
Any quote or line of dialogue from the movies will work. So scour your brain (and the internet) for Star Wars lines and then write, or ice, away.
Apparently, there is no shortage of great options for making a fun Star Wars cake for someone you love. So, try one of these ideas, or let your imagination go wild and come up with one of your own.
No matter what the finished product, the unique Star Wars fan in your life is sure to love it. You may also start with these recipes for Star Wars themed cupcakes.
