how to host a star wars party in 5 excruciatingly painstakingly detailed steps: part 4 - THE CAKE

K, I know this post could use some, well, WORDS, but it's late and I'm lazy tired and I just want to get them published before blogger eats another of my posts.


(deep breath)

I promise to be back with some wordy instructions later tomorrow. There are definitely some gaps in the pictures that I will deftly fill in with words. Promise.

***NOTE: I've since discovered that icing the rice krispie treats is A TOTAL PAIN and completely unnecessary. The fondant will stick just fine without the icing. Also, using icing to stick fondant to fondant is difficult and doesn't even work very well. A small paintbrush dipped in water is amazingly effective. The water makes the fondant stick to itself and you avoid all the messy icing showing behind your work.

Need some party supplies? Want to make your own pool noodle lightsabers? Check these links below and have it all delivered to your door. If you find any of these links are broken or sold out, let me know and I'll find some new sources. Wouldn't the minifigure ice cube trays be fun? They could be used for ice (obviously), chocolate, or even to make Lego man crayons!
