I lovingly crafted these cupcakes and this cake for my nephew’s 6 birthday. It’s easy to guess the theme of the party; my sister-in-law threw a little boy’s dream party complete with Padawan costumes, a Darth Vader visit, Jedi training and many treats! I was thrilled when she asked me to make the cake.
I used these brilliant William Sonoma cookie cutters to cut the shapes out of fondant.
I added some gum paste to the Yoda heads so they would withstand the heat of an outdoor party and not wilt and sag. I also tried making some Swiss meringue buttercream for the cupcakes. It tasted amazing!
I’m really thrilled with how they all turned out!
