Obi-Wan Kenobi Cake

Bonnie Burton | February 26, 2009

Check out this delicious Obi-Wan Kenobi atop this fondant-covered Star Wars cake of vanilla sponge, vanilla buttercream, and strawberry jam made by Natasha.

The cake was for a little boy called Harry, for his 6th birthday. He is a massive Star Wars fan. I get nervous doing cakes like these because I know how geeky boys and men can get. I did a Yoda cake first and my husbands comment was “If he held his lightsaber like that it would cut off his hands!” But Harry was delighted.

Vader Cake: It’s a Girl!

Bonnie Burton | February 2, 2009

Darth Vader may have been the worst dad in the galaxy, but that doesn’t mean he’s above helping you celebrate the birth of your baby daughter.

One Star Wars fan decided to add a little Sith sentiment to this delightful (or scary) baby shower cake. Impressive use of non-canon planets and festive sprinkles!

Star Wars Mini-Golf Cake

Bonnie Burton | January 21, 2009

Why make a typical birthday cake when you can make a Star Wars miniature golf cake? According to cake artisan Kellye:

It may surprise you to hear that the cake was actually a birthday cake for a pretty cool 4-year-old little girl. She’s really into Star Wars. The cake itself is strawberry per her request. The grass and stream are buttercream and the walkway and putting greens are fondant. Everything else is inedible. The golf clubs are toothpicks or kabob sticks (depending on the character’s hand size) with a little carved piece of marshmallow on the end.

Yummy Yoda Cake, Bake You Must

Bonnie Burton | December 10, 2008

It’s amazing what you can make with Rice Krispies treats, chocolate and fondant. Debbie Goard of San Francisco’s Debbie Does Cakes made this magnificent Yoda cake with those ingredients and more.

Yoda’s head was made from rice krispies treats, modelling chocolate and fondant. I made the head a few days in advance. Just doesn’t feel right if I don’t have a disemboweled head staring at me throughout the week, lol! The body was made up of Rich strawberry cake with a Bavarian custard filling. The body was then covered in fondant and airbrushed.

DIY Master Yoda Cake

Bonnie Burton | July 8, 2008


(Yoda cake by Mikkel Mihlrad)

When we spotted this Force-tastic cake of Yoda made by Mikkel Mihlrad for the Star Wars Weekends (at Disney’s Hollywood Studios) cast and crew wrap party, we had to know more about it.

Why did you decide to make a Yoda cake for the party?
The special event Yoda was created for was the Star Wars Weekends wrap party. My fiancee, Jason Surrell, was one of the show producers of the event.

What is the cake made from?
Yoda’s head is sculptued Cocoa Krispies (like Rice Krispie treats), as are his hands, feet and walking stick. His body is sculpted layers of cake. Chocolate is Jason’s favorite, so the cake is a chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling. The entire cake was covered in chocolate buttercream and then with fondant (which I make from scratch so it’s essentially a marshmallow and confectioner’s sugar mixture).

Bake this Yoda Cake, You Will!

Bonnie Burton | February 26, 2008

Aussie Star Wars fan Sandra make a Jedi Master yummier than he is wise with this awesome Yoda Cake.

According to Great White Snark Blog:

The torso is cake covered with buttercream, and dressed with fondant clothing, arms, and feet. The “skull” is made of “brown crunch,” which is like Rice Krispies Treats. But… brown. Fondant makes up the features of the head, including those distinctively-Yoda-ish ears.”
