Lego Star Wars Party part one here and part two here
Onto the cake...Josh seems to have a penchant for Boba Fett, so I decided I should try and make him one as his cake. I stumbled upon this amazing blog and got to see, step by step how this mama made her lego cake! Perfect!
This was the first time for me to try and do a cake this detailed. Last years cake, although it looked compex, it was easier because it was just tiny little details all put together. This was larger with more room for error and more space to see the errors and lumps and bumps. I also think that I could have hidden more errors if I had rolled the fondant thicker. BUT I only discovered this whilst running out of time and running out of fondant!
The head and body of the cake were simple sponge cakes, I started to shape the head to be represntative of Boba's helmet and then used rice crispy treats to build it up in places:
Every part of the sponge had to be covered in frosting prior to placing the fondant one (to get it to stick and stay in place)
I used this recipe to make the rice crispy treats to make the legs. After shaping the legs and one hand, I ran out of rice crispy treats and had to send Mr B to walmart to get more ingredients!
After whipping up another massive batch, I shaped the arms and hands and was just putting the fondant on the last arm when the guests started arriving...phew.
I am not a huge fan of this cake - all I see is inaccuracies, BUT the Birthday boy loved it...and apparently so did his guests, and that is all that matters..
