Okay, so maybe that’s not an original post title. BUT I did think of it on my own without knowing it’s been thought of already. How did I know it’s been thought of already? Well I couldn’t imagine that no one else thought of it so I called upon good old Google search! Sure enough, the phrase already exists. Oh well. Can I still get some creativity points? At least one? ;)
If you read my cupcakes with a cherry on top post, then you already know that I’m referencing Star Wars. If you didn’t, then you may have figured it out from the title of this post. And if you still didn’t get it, well, I guess you can be forgiven especially since I have no room to judge. ;) Even though I do like Star Wars, I’m definitely not a crazy fanatic like some people out there. As a matter of fact I haven’t watched all of them. I think I just heard a loud GASP! across the blogosphere. Haha! Don’t worry, I do know all the main characters… but not necessarily all their history. Also, I confess, I didn’t know there really was a difference between a stormtrooper and a clone trooper. As a matter of fact, whenever I would see a picture of a clone trooper I just assumed it was a stormtrooper. If you were to ask me about clone troopers my reponse would have been “Clone trooper… what’s that?” Well, that would’ve been the case up until this cake order I made two weeks ago… a Lego Star Wars themed cake.
I made a lego themed cake a couple years ago, but it wasn’t Lego Star Wars.
I had made the above cake for my friend’s son’s kindergarten graduation (covered in buttercream with fondant decorations). I made the graduation cap to fit like an actual lego piece on the lego characters head..hehe. My latest client (also a friend) had seen the above cake on my Facebook page when I first posted it. Since then she’s been intending to have a lego themed party for her son. Finally she did but it was a Lego Star Wars theme instead!
For the birthday boy’s name and age I used the Star Wars font. I created a stencil with my Silhouette and used the stencil to hand cut the name and number. To give them a space effect I painted them with silver luster dust. To create the luster dust paint, I mixed dry luster dust with lemon oil. I also painted the stars as well. The border of the cake is just piped buttercream. As usual, the cake is covered in buttercream.
Darth Vader and stormtrooper gave me some difficulty getting them to look like their real lego counterparts…or close to it at least. I think I did a better job getting Barney & his friends as well as Pinkalicious to look like the actual characters… characters with more details. Go figure!
Cupcakes were also a part of the order. The request was for a 6″ cake and cupcake tower set up. I personally love the small cake with cupcakes set up because cupcakes are always easier to serve. Also, there’s just something about cupcakes that I could never tire of!
Next up… flowers and butterflies! Come back and see what I did for the last of the three orders I had two weeks ago.
