Well, how to talk about a Yoda Cake hmmm? Honestly, I was always a Han Solo fan, the little green guy never did it for me, but I really like where I got to tonight on this cake. So, this is something of a commission for the CEO of the company I work for. I’m pretty excited, because the idea in my head is coming out pretty much the way I had hoped. Here is the cake design that was agreed upon:
It’s pretty – well, simple, for the cake I originally imagined with a Yoda theme. I was maybe thinking three dimensional, or something really crazy like a full sized head (would that be gross to cut into?). So I found the cartoon online that the above cake is based on:
Once I had the sketch, I started filling in the main colours:
And darker colours for highlights and details:
Once the colouring is done with a paintbrush, I go back and start outlining the cartoon again with black:
And then once I was happy with that, I cut away the fondant so that it’s just the cartoon. I’ll let this dry overnight and harden up a bit, and then tomorrow morning I’ll ice the cake and pop it on the top. Hopefully it will all be as easy as that just sounded!
Happy I am…
