Every joke-loving Star Wars fan looks forward to the beginning of May when they get the opportunity to utter the classic pun, “May the fourth be with you!” In anticipation of May 4th and all of the Star Wars delights that go with it, we’re sharing with you some of the best Star Wars cakes from the gallery!
Chocolate cake with swiss meringue buttercream covered with fondant and gumpaste pieces.
The Chewbacca cake. 70 servings of cake 100 edible. It stands a little over 2 feet tall.
This Ewok cake was made for my biggest Star Wars fan! Love you brother!Hi all cake lovers! Several have asked for directions for this cake. If you have more questions please send me a note. I used the Wilton Care Bear 3D pan. I have an old one from 1983…but the new bear pan would work just as well. I used the star tip…18 or 21…both work well for making the fur. I striped the inside of the piping bag with white and brown frosting to get the mixed color for his face. I made the face details out of fondant and gum paste. I sculpted those parts by hand and used tooth picks to hold in place. I painted on black dye gel for the eyes and nose to get the glossy look. The hood is rolled fondant. I rolled it really thin to get a good lay over the cake. I used the cake pan to shape the hood before I put it on the cake. I colored the hood with the copper gel color…I saturated the fondant with this color to get the color I wanted.I covered a dowel rod in fondant to make the staff…I marbled different shades of brown. I used ground cinnamon to dirty him. The cinnamon was finer than cookies and made a better dusting as well as the color complimenting the copper dye.The ears are rolled gumpaste and fondant cut into triangles made out of the copper color. I used a large size flower form from Wilton to dry them on to get the curve. I painted on brown and copper gel color inside the ears for a darker look. Good luck! If you make this cake send me a picture! Would love to see it!
We were asked to make a death star cake for a 5 year old. There is so much more detail in this cake than a 5 year old will ever appreciate but my boyfriend loved every second of this cake.People have been asking for details so I will share (though it was pretty straight forwad… just slow!!!)6″ wilton ball cake torted and filled and covered in buttercream (Indy Debi’s buttercream with Cream subbed for milk) Then covered in grey fondant and airbrushed for pewter effect.All accents are fondant. 72 panels were each hand cut from dark grey fondant, the “equitorial trench is black fondant. Then we spent 9 hours combined cutting various little black strips for the wires/conduits and then used tip #3 to punch red Lights, #2 to punch white and yellow lights and #4 to punch green laser points.Lastly it was lightly airbrushed again with pearl sheen. Total was about 851 pieces and 25 man hours to complete… so worth it Thanks for looking!
Darth Vader cake sculpted from 2 x 9″ round, 1 x 8″ round and 1/2 ball pan. Covered in chocolate fondant airbrushed black. I had an absolute blast making this cake. I wanted to add a voice chip which I had pried out of an old birthday card but I had already made up the board so it was too small to incude it. Next time I will definitively add it so we can have a talking Darth Vader. Thanks to all other CC’ers who have posted Darth cakes for the inspiration.
This is a cake I made for my step-son’s birthday. It’s my first standing figure. I have all the info at dazeycakes.blogspot.com.
Greetings again, here is a cake topper that I just completed for a Star Wars themed cake. It measured 10″ high x 10″ long x 4″ wide. I used foam, popsicle sticks, and fondant. Enjoy – CakeSmith (duane)

Trying out an airbrush for the first time- colored chocolate buttercream black… fun but boy did I learn a lot. All buttercream with fondant letters (airbrushed) and death star. Tie fighter is a FBCT.
Star Wars cake for a little boy’s birthday. I really wanted to do it black, but the mom didn’t want black (can’t say I blame her – but it sure would have looked good). Butter cake with BC icing. Death star is a styrofoam ball covered in fondant; star fighter planes also fondant/gumpaste, lego figures. Dusted with disco dust, but didn’t look “starry” enough, so I piped on the BC stars.
This cake is made from a 6 and 10 inch round iceed in buttercream. The figures and all the decorations are made from MMF.
Yoda is made from rice krispie treats for the head and chocolate cake for the body. All fondant/gumpaste decoration.
With much inspiration from other photos on CC, I made this for my son’s 7th birthday. I used a 10″ round , 2 9″ rounds, and pyrex casserole dish (for the rounded top part) all stacked up. I didn’t need dowel rods or cake board because the pound cake was pretty sturdy. Covered in fondant, with buttercream between layers and for the crumb coating. My son loved it so much, he wouldn’t let me put candles it it…ha ha!!

Finally got one of these bad boys under my belt! Now I am ready to do one again even better…funny how much you learn from the first one….I would like to get a little more detailed and be a little more prepared. Customer LOVED it and that’s all that matters to me! Well…..almost…..I always see room for improvement…hehehe! Thanks for looking! Oh, this was 3 -6″ rounds stacked with 1/2 of the wilton ball pan on top… covered in fondant…legs rice crispy treats.
Thanks to all the CC members for ideas with this cake. My very favorite feature is that the cake plays the Star Wars theme music, I love it! Cake is done in BC with fondant Star Wars logo, it took forever to cut out and it still looks sloppy! Oh well. The board is covered with RI. Thanks for looking.
Star Wars cake for a friend’s little boy. The light sabers are all MMF and the Star Wars logo is FBCT.
My son LOVES Lego Star Wars and thanks to the Lego Batman Cake youtube video he figured this would be a no-brainer for Mom! All fondant, the characters are standing on the “death star” . The lettering is also fondant dusted with gold luster dust and attached with buttercream. Luke is leaning a little because I didn’t attach them to the cake until we got to the venue.

Angry Birds Star Wars cake. Gluten Free layers of chocolate, and coconut chocolate chip cake, with vanilla bean buttercream. Fondant covered, all the birds are fondant, and I used an ice method for the chocolate “asteroid” pieces.
My son’s birthday theme this year was Angry Birds Star Wars. His attention to detail is remarkable for a 7 year old. We butted heads a few times as we designed this cake, and we both shed a few tears! Once the cake was complete we were both really happy with how it turned out.
Star Wars characters cut with a set of four cookie cutters from a high street store, light sabres modelled by hand. I made a large personalised cupcake for the birthday boy with his favourite character on – the number is a sparkler.

This was an R2D2 cake made for a family member’s groom’s cake. It is a dummy cake because he wanted to be able to save it for another reception they were going to have a couple of weeks after the ceremony. I used Stacked Cakes information on how they did their version as a jumping off point. My friend has a mini-R2D2 robot so I was able to use that to make molds for some of the more intricate accents. Thanks for looking.
