My son just celebrated a birthday and when asked what kind of cake he wanted he didn’t come up with an answer until the night before the big event. His answer was that he wanted a Star Wars cake…. no other details were given.
I decided to make a light-sabre. The reason I’m sharing this with you is that is was so easy it was scary, it looked pretty cool, and you can adapt the idea. Here’s a picture:
I simply made a 9x14 sized cake, cut it into long strips, pieced it together on a big tray and iced it. What made the kids love it is the addition of glow sticks along the sides. I already have an order for another one in November. (I’m not sure why it looks so crooked in the picture?!?!)
If a light-sabre is not something your birthday person would be into, you could transfer the same idea to a princess wand, fairy wand, change the shape of the cake and you could do a lava lamp, a glowing retro diner clock, any neon sign you want to reproduce in sugar….. you get the idea!
Any other suggestions I’ve missed?
