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.

Making Darth Fairy!

Bonnie Burton | October 11, 2010

Inspired by the pretty in Pink Princess Vader costume, this fan took it a step further to create a purple Darth Vader costume for her youngling!

With last year’s fairy costume in hand I set out to make her dreams come true. We had an old Darth Vader mask that I primed and spray painted lavender. Princess Fierce brought me a broken toy crown that I took apart, painted green, added purple glitter sparkles and mounted to the mask.

I redesigned the straps to the mask to be purple and green ribbon from the sides and one piece with loops across the top. Allowing me to tie a bow through the loop and basically make a net that sat on her head. She was ecstatic. The mask wasn’t too tight but yet did not slip. She wore it comfortably for most of 8 hours.

With mask done I moved on to what every good fairy needs…a wand. I found some adorable lavender flowers for half price at Hobby Lobby. Score! I spray painted a styrofoam ball, with thumb pressed dimple. I added on Death Star detail with a green sharpie then glued it into the flower’s center. Add some green and lavender ribbon to the flower stem and we have the Death Star Flower Wand.

The final touch was Vader’s control panel. Using a picture of Vader for a guide I cut out pieces of purple and green felt and glued them down to a purple panel. Stitched the panel on to the fairy costume and Darth Fairy was born.

In honor of Star Wars fans everywhere who feel like they’re stuck on the planet Hoth thanks to endless snow, here’s a way to have some fun instead of shaking your fist at the sky.

Artist Jim Jeroo shows off his skills by making this Yoda snowman he nicknamed Snoda. Most impressive. In fact, we’re kinda hoping he makes a snow AT-AT next!

If you’ve made a Star Wars snow sculpture, please let us know in the comments!
