I need to make a star wars cake... The main piece in the cake is a life size light saber (it will be laying on the cake). I dont know which medium and which way would be best? I want it to look great and smooth. Should I do rkt covered in fondant? Modeling chocolate? What would be the best way to shape it?? Hayyy!! I'm lost on thisnone please help! T.i.a.

I think rkt covered in modeling chocolate or fondant would work great! Just something that can be cut and wrapped around will be fine. I did a lightsaber cake a couple of years ago, not on top of a cake, but the actual cake. I covered it in fondant and it worked great.

Also, depending on how large your cake will be, and how concerned you are with the whole thing being edible, you could use a non-edible material to get a perfectly uniform and smooth finish. A thicker dowel, or paper towel roll, or something along those lines, just covered in fondant, would be easy to cover flawlessly (Easier than the rkt), and easy to cut to your exact size. If you really want the edible aspect of it, though, you could simply roll a log of any color left-over fondant and THEN cover it with the color you want (a little trick I love to do, since I waste less that way and still get the all-edible benefits icon_wink.gif ).
