Make These Clone Trooper Desserts!

Bonnie Burton | June 22, 2011

Nothing tastes better than clone trooper helmet… if you know how to make it with the right ingredients! Dot shows off how she made these yummy clone trooper candy pops and cupcakes on!

These Clone Trooper Candy Pops are made using Rolo candies and marshmallow fondant!

Dot says about her Clone Trooper Cupcakes:

For The Clone Wars birthday party, we came up with the idea for upside down clone trooper helmet cupcakes. These cupcakes were the hit of the party with the five-year-old boy set!

They are not only impressive looking, they are also tasty. The marshmallow fondant on the outside actually tastes like marshmallows, not not regular, mediocre tasting fondant.

These cupcakes could easily also be adapted to be stormtroopers rather than clone troopers, if your Star Wars fan is more old school. Simple change the pattern on the cupcake!

May the dessert be with you!

I don’t know how we missed blogging this awesome cake from last November, but here it is in all its Death Star glory. The attention to detail is most impressive!

Yoda Christmas Cake

Bonnie Burton | December 20, 2010

Check out this awesome Force-tastic Star Wars Christmas cake made by Tara from Cloud Nine Confections in North Vancouver, BC.

My favorite thing about this cake is Yoda. In Star Wars, Yoda is always shown as being very old. I love the image of Yoda as a kid, standing by his Christmas Tree, waiting impatiently for Santa Claus. I almost feel sorry for Santa! He better give Yoda everything he asked for or Yoda has a present (aka his lightsaber) ready for Santa.

Clone Wars Cupcakes!

Bonnie Burton | November 29, 2010

Check out these awesome Clone Wars cupcakes made by A Baked Creation blogger and baker Sylvia.

So, I learned something new this week. We were asked to make some Clone Wars cupcakes and really, this is what I knew about Star Wars beforehand:
There is a dark side and a not so dark side.
Having the force be with you is a good thing.
I knew that Luke’s father is Darth Vader, psht! Come on!
Yoda kicks ass and is a wise green little fellow.
I like saying the word Padawan. Padawan! Padawan!
Stormtroopers are bad!
Lightsabers look cool.
All of this happens in a galaxy far, far away.

You can tell I pay a lot of attention when Howard talks about Star Wars. Which he tried to explain to me all over again when I was doing the dishes (I’m trapped!). Well, luckily he does know a thing or two about Star Wars and was a tremendous help on making these Clone Wars cupcakes with me.
