May the force be with you, Mike

Posted by kel @ sweet treats at 9:57 AM
A friend of mine, Meri, asked me to do a cake for her hubby's birthday. Mike's a mad Star Wars fan so it was only natural that I create a Star Wars themed cake.

I created a tall, 17cm white chocolate mud cake and slathered it in white chocolate ganache. The cake was framed by a chocolate buttercream shell pattern.


Adorning the top were two figurines that I sculped out of sugarpaste. At Mike's request, these figures were the likeness of Obi Wan and Anakin. In times like this, Google images comes in very handy for a Star Wars virgin like myself.

Happy birthday Mike!

Aww Sunny thanks for your lovely comments! I love that cheesecake...ahhh I'm drooling just thinking about it!

Chrisssy - I'd love to open a shop one day! It's just a matter of getting some money together and doing lots of homework about how to run a business I guess!

Thanks so much for everyone's wonderful comments...my partner just asked why I was grinning and I told him that my readers make me sooo happy :D

She sure did Stace!

I got some great feedback from her. Apparently she went to have seconds and the cake had already been completely devoured hehe!
