Star Wars Cake!
Before we start... I need to apologize. When I sit down to write these posts for you I am sooo excited to share everything with you, and then, I realize... I DIDN'T TAKE ANY PICTURES!! It drives me crazy that I do this! The truth is that usually I am so buried in cake work that even if I were to remember I sometimes don't even have the time (seriously there is that much work no joke). Ok well, apology aside, I can still share with you what I did to make this super fun Star Wars cake:)!!
Materials:* 2 cake tiers covered in WHITE fondant (I like to use marshmallow fondant)
* An airbursh with colors airbrush colors purple and black
* The Star Wars text print out in the size you like for your cake
* Disney Star Wars figurines
* Buttercream with a #2 or #3 piping tip for stars
* Black ribbon for base of tier
* Tan colored fondant & gold luster dust with vodka (for painting)
* White fondant and patch-work letter cutters (love these for many cake projects:))
Step 1. With each tier choose a bottom 'corner' and spray with purple. After the purple spray the remainder of the tier in black. Once you have a pretty good black coat finish off with a good dose of purple EVERYWHERE. This purple on black effect softens the black and gives the cake a seamless well blended look especially with that portion of purple. I LOVE this effect because it give it a super cool Star Wars look!:)
Step 2. Once the cake is dry cut our your star wars letters with the tan fondant (see our tutorial on 2D cutting). Cut out your white letters. Attach everything using shortening (I prefer to use high ratio shortening because it sticks better). I don't like to use sugar glue because you can't move anything around if you need to!
Step 3. Paint your Star Wars logo with your gold luster dust mixed with a little vodka.
Step 4. Use a small icing tip (#2 or #3) and pipe the stars all around the cake.
Step 5. Apply the black ribbon at the base of each tier and place your figurines.
May The Force Be With You when you make this cake!!;)
Have a great cake day!
