I made this simple birthday cake for my husband back in April. He is a huge Star Wars fan! Maybe you can get inspired if you are gonna make a Star Wars cake.
Each year I make a cake for my husband’s birthday and normally, I always decorate the cakes with sugar flowers (because that’s what I love to make). However, he doesn’t think it is super cool when he has invited the boys over for his birthday and the cake is covered with flowers 😉 So this year I surprised him with a Star Wars cake completely without flowers – he loved it 🙂
CAKE & FILLING
20 people attended the party so I made a cake with a diameter of 25 cm (10 inches). The cake is a chocolate cake (see recipe) that I split in order to make a 2 layer cake.
The fillings consist of one layer with chocolate mousse and one layer with lime mousse. This is a delicious combination of the fresh taste of lime and the rich chocolate taste. I have also frosted the top and the sides of the cake with chocolate ganache before I covered the cake with black fondant. I did not color the fondant myself. I have purchased the black fondant because I think it is way too complicated to color fondant black 🙁 (Been there, done that, didn’t go well)
Decorating the Star Wars Cake
I have made the Star Wars logo and the stars from fondant. I decorated the border of the cake with fondant, made with a fondant strip ribbon cutter tool. I colored the fondant border after I glued it to the cake. The little Storm Trooper is made from plastic and I just purchased it in a cake shop.
