Happy May the 4th Be With You aka Star Wars Day!
You all are probably all to aware that we have huge (I mean HUGE) Star Wars fans in the house. I can't tell you how much SW stuff we have, but lets just leave it at a lot. And we can't just not celebrate the official un-official Star Wars Day. So I made a cake. A STAR WARS BUNDT CAKE!!!
AND because I love you all, I put YODA in the CAKE.
OK in any other context that's a weird and creepy statement - so I'll just let you look at the cake!
I hope you can tell that's Jedi Master Yoda.
I finally bought those Williams Sonoma Star Wars Cookie Cutters.
1) Because they are way cool
2) They were also on sale for half off
3) Yoda is da bomb (do kids still say that?)
Start by baking a tinted green boxed cake in a jelly roll pan. Once cooled, cut out the shape (in this case Yoda heads) from the cake with the cutter.
And you get a bunch of Yoda heads.
Next, mix up another boxed cake mix (or your fav homemade cake recipe). I used chocolate, because the official Star Wars cake flavor is chocolate. Well maybe not but it should be. Add a little of the cake batter to the bottom of a greased bundt cake. Then add your cut out shapes (upside down so when you flip the bundt over, the shapes will be right side up). Try to keep them as close together as possible. Then cover with the rest of the cake batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 mins.
Once cooled I iced with this icing and added some star sprinkles and blue tinted non-pareils, which were cool, but I thought it needed something else. So I made some tiny light saber sprinkles.
LIGHT SABER SPRINKLES!
They are made from blue, red, and gray candy melt. (You could also use royal icing too). Just pipe small lines with each color, and add some more black or red dots with candy melt as accents. Once the candy hardens, sprinkle these on top while the icing is still wet.
I couldn't wait til' the 4th to cut in.
Yay! A Star Wars Yoda Inside Bundt Cake!
And did you see they announced the cast for the new movie due out in 2015? Woo! Me and the other gagillion SW fans will be hoping for good things (and maybe a little cgi for Han, Luke, and Leia!)
Happy Star Wars Day to All! Have an Awesome Week!
