I kind of like the whimsical interpretation of the Death Star in this Star Wars groom’s cake. It’s very “death machine sits on a fluffy cloud at the end of a Skittles rainbow.”
‘Cause you know there’s no better place for a death machine to sit than on a fluffy cloud. Or a pair of cybernetic legs. Or a motion-tracking tripod. But mostly a fluffy cloud.
Judy shares details on this mechanical Pangaea-looking confection, featuring four layers of chocolate chip cookies, white chocolate mousse filling, butter cream frosting, a garnish of Skittles and Sweet Tarts, and the dimples of forest pixies:
The cake was done for my friend’s brother’s wedding. The Death Star idea came from him being such an avid Star Wars fan…It took about 3 hours baking time between the cookies, round ball cake and mixing up the mousse and frostings. Then about 1 1/2 hours to decorate…no time at all for the bottom round part, mostly that time was just ate up with covering the ball and gluing on the exterior pieces.
Once placed out for service, it cut and served exactly like any other cake would—-because the chocolate chip cookies making up the “cake” part were soft and chewy.
