Star Wars fan Marty sent photos of this awesome Jabba the Hutt cake to Great White Snark for its Geeky Cake of the Week:
My four year old is reallly into Star Wars now and Jabba is his favorite character (which is a bit weird to me). After I promised him a “Jabba cake” (with no real plan on how to get one) I turned to every geek’s best friend, the Internet. I found a fairly simple recipe for fondant and my wife made it. I mixed in food coloring to make the various pieces.
My favorite part was Jabba’s slime. I used green food coloring mixed in Karo syrup, then applied it generously. For the eyes I took two Whoppers candies, applied them in the hallowed out sockets then applied fondant eyelids to make the eyes more squinty (at one point it looked like Jabba had a thyroid disorder).
