I made an R2-D2 from candy melts and royal icing. Then, the Star Wars cake was inspired by the lovely multi-colored cakes from Amanda of i am baker. My son said he wanted red and blue layers…something about good and bad lightsabers.

Fett’s Just a Sweet Guy Underneath

Pete Vilmur | March 17, 2010

DC Metro Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC) president Martin Thurn sent us a heads-up on a cool Fett cake crafted by local cake ace Michael Abromavage of www.abrocakes.com for a club member’s 40th birthday celebration:

“The cake was four layers of pound cake with the dome made out of Rice Krispy treats,” says Abromavage. “Both the dome and cheekbones were carved into shape. The whole helmet was covered in fondant and then beat up to mimic the damage. All of the other helmet pieces are made with fondant and then hand painted to give it the final look.”

Clone Wars Cake!

Bonnie Burton | February 23, 2010

This Clone Wars cake by Marj Jenkins may be the tastiest tribute ever!

A dessert designed for an intergalactic celebration – vanilla cake layered with chocolate and raspberry buttercream filling. The entire cake is covered in blue and black buttercream swirled together to resemble deep space. The clone trooper helmet made of Rice Krispie Treats and covered in fondant is an extra little treat for the two birthday boys who shared this cake.

Jabba, You’re a Wonderful Cake

Bonnie Burton | February 16, 2010

Nothing says “Happy Birthday” like a Hutt covered in frosting. Check out this awesome Jabba the Hutt cake that would make any fan’s birthday wish come true.

This is my birthday cake this year — Jabba the Hutt. A friend of the family kindly made this for us and I think she did a fantastic job (she also made my iPhone cake 3 years ago). My four-year-old son likes Jabba’s son Rotta and requested that the cake have Jabba and Rotta hugging, so that’s what we did. Jabba is made of chocolate cake, chocolate fudge, and fondant.

I have an extensive collection of Jabba-related items (toys, collectibles, etc) that I have been cataloging on my blog.

And if you like Jabba the Hutt, you REALLY should follow that blog. It’s Huttastic!

Look Out, It’s Ewokong!

Bonnie Burton | February 11, 2010

Ever wonder what would happen if an Ewok the size of King Kong was rampaging through Coruscant? Artist Nathan Hamill shows us just that in his new base card for the Star Wars Galaxy 5 trading card series.

The 120 card collection will be released February 24, 2010. The set features new base card artwork, sketch cards, foil cards, the art of Star Wars Celebration and more.

Nathan writes:

I found that as I get older, my affinity for Ewoks grows. Maybe it’s part of myself wanting to return to my youth and the days when Jedi was released or maybe it’s a realization that they’re actually pretty vicious lil guys. And, yes, they’re cute but there’s also something quite unsettling about them. The human-like teeth? The black, beady eyes? Their hunger for flesh?

Fashion Inspired by The Clone Wars

We already know that Star Wars has made its mark on cool urban street wear from the likes of Marc Ecko to adidas, but this may be the first time we’ve heard of The Clone Wars being a direct inspiration for runway fashions.

Swedish fashion label Acne’s Jonny Johansson told the press that his recent show in London took direct inspiration from The Clone Wars, which he watches with his sons.

Vogue UK reports:

Acne’s Jonny Johansson cites Star Wars: The Clone Wars as the starting point for his autumn/winter 2010 collection, which showed last night in east London. That’s not to say we should all start packing a lightsaber, but rather we should be channeling the intergalactic colour palette, shape and feel of Luke Skywalker’s get-up.

“The collection was actually inspired by a cartoon my two eldest sons are obsessed with; Star Wars: Clone Wars,” Acne creative director Jonny Johansson revealed with a smile. “It’s not literal, of course, just a feeling, an inspiration — and many of the silhouettes continue from last season. But I liked the idea that movies with spacey subjects are supposed to look futuristic.”

Futuristic or not, the collection has all of Acne’s signature wearability. Shaped, buckled bondage pieces and space age styling; gold cuffs, collars and models’ metallic foreheads, were balanced by the soft draped shapes of dresses, over-sized boxy styles of suede and leather jackets and the brand’s signature fur and shearling collars.
