I am making a cake for a 5 year old that loves Star Wars. He has requested a light saber. I will make it out of RKT and place it on top of a cake. I am trying to see if any one has ideas on incorporating a light. The only thing I can think of is to use a light on the switch (red light) on the handle.
Never tried it (disclaimer) but I once thought about just making the "holder" out of RKT and fondant and then attaching an activated glow stick (they come in many sizes, and even at the dollar store). I wonder if that would work?
I thought about that but I really want the whole thing to be edible (minus the light) :)
I don't know how big you want the sabers... but if I was trying to do it, I like the glow stick idea, instead of fondant and rkt,I think I would do poured sugar, kind of like the beer bottles that are popular only more saber shaped, and put the glow stick inside of that. Hope that made sense, some times what I see in my little head doesn't type right lol.
Well, I made the light saber out of RKT covered in fondant and placed on top of the cake. I just used a small button light on the handle.
this is what it looked like:
Thank you :)
Asher was very happy with his cake!!
