DIY Master Yoda Cake

(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).

When Star Wars artist Chris Trevas told me his girlfriend and foodie blogger Julie Foxworthy baked him a one-of-a-kind Yoda birthday cake, I was super-impressed! So I asked Julie how she went about making this edible tribute so some of you can put your oven to work making more Jedi Master confections!


Bake this Yoda Cake, You Will!

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.”
