Wampa Cake!

Bonnie Burton | September 15, 2010

Star Wars fan Alicia Policia is celebrating her 30th birthday alongside The Empire Strikes Back‘s 30th anniversary in geektastic style with this awesome Wampa Cake!

Alicia writes:

This week I’ll be posting pictures of my spectacular The Empire Strikes Back themed 30th birthday celebration for grown-ups and all of the homemade crafty, nerdy goodness that made it so. That’s right, Monday to Friday — all Empire – Mynocks to Fett comma Boba.

Made with my mom’s classic sour cream pound cake recipe shaped into an Alicia style Wampa, buttercream icing, and one very forgiving decorating style — I’m tempted to make only shaggy monster cakes from now on.

Bring Me the Head of Yoda…Cake!

Bonnie Burton | August 26, 2010

We’ve seen plenty fan-made Star Wars cakes, but this Yoda cake made be the most realistic-looking head of a Jedi Master we’ve ever seen! Most impressive…

I’m an artist who recently has gotten into cake decorating and have fallen in love with it! I’m currently taking the beginner cake decorating classes and hoping to land a job at a bakery. I decided to try making my first sculpted cake and chose Yoda as the subject. It was so much fun and I’ve found my passion!

This is a red velvet cake (with Rice Krispie treats for the ears) covered in fondant. I tried to get as much detail as I could. I wanted to finish the bust with fondant clothing over the neck area and covering the pan and plate but I ran out of time and fondant. Yoda was very yummy! Everyone said it was sad to cut into him, but we went to the dark side that night. :) Hopefully I will have time soon to continue the Star Wars theme with another sculpted cake.

AT-AT Wedding Cake!

Bonnie Burton | May 17, 2010

Just when you thought that infamous Dead Tauntaun Cake was the best bit of Star Wars fandom to ever invade a wedding, here comes the toppled AT-AT wedding cake with Ewok cupcakes!

This toppled AT-AT is one of my favorite cakes to date. I love the mini Admiral Ackbar and Mon Mothma but I think maybe the topper are the Ewok cupcakes that accompany this masterpiece. The bride, Rebecca Dudeiros, says that this cake wasn’t even made in a bakery. She had her buddy (a pastry chef herself though) Teresa Ulrich do it custom for her.

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!

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.
