Death Star Cake

 Well, another year has gone by, and in keeping with the Star Wars theme, this year hubby wanted a Death Star cake for his birthday. (Last year it was R2D2.) So I set off on my mission to make him his cake and this is what I came up with.  I used a spherical cake pan to bake both halves of the cake, then covered them both with fondant. The panels were also cut from fondant and I piped on the details in royal icing.

I made the TIE and X-wing fighters out of gum paste and attached them to wires. Then I inserted the wires into a flower pick that I had placed into the top of the cake. (Never attach wires directly into a cake please.)

And so the cake was done, hubby was pleased and all is well in our galaxy lol. Until next year...I wonder what the next cake will be.

Happy baking! :)
