This is a spice sheet cake with cream cheese frosting and filling, with a white Darth Vader cut out cake on top, covered with buttercream, and pour-on icing (I couldn't get the buttercream dark enough).

Marble cake frosted in buttercream.  I striped the bag with yellow and orange to pick up the back round of the picture.  The picture is painted on wafer paper.  I used edible markers and piping gel.

Okay this was my first attempt at fondant... I was way intimidated so for me this isn't a great cake... But we sure did get a lot of looks on our way to the birthday party.

1/2 yellow sheet cake buttercream frosting.  

Unfortunately you cannot really see the detail on Vader in this picture.  I learned a lot from this cake!  Like 'corners'.

My first ccc, very easy.  FBCT of darth vader and yoda.  Not happy with yoda's face and he is suppose to be facing the other way.  Customer was very happy.  Thanks to the CC member(s) for the flame border idea.

Made out of one 13x9 pan, I traced the face of a photo of Darth Vader, enlarged it on the photocopier until fit the width of the cake, and cut the mask to size.  After base frosting the mask with Wilton chocolate buttercream frosting, I took the traced paper and applied piping gel to outline the details of the face, then used the star and round tips to decorate.  

The 'marquee" board was made from the bottom of the 13x9 cake.

Shape was cut from sheet cake. Iced in chocolate buttercream colored black. Raised details made with black colored buttercream "fondant". Painted highlights with white coloring. Face mask & hand were built up with cake. Light Saber was a 10 inch red glow stick ( my wife's idea :) ). Flames were piped from yellow/red colored buttercream.

This was a very last minute order, so I didn't have time to do the helmet ahead of time and let it get hard.  So it kinda looks like Darth is wearing a hood...  I shouldn't have held back on the black food colouring, as it all got peeled off before it was cut anyways.  Underneath the fondant is "Burnt Scalp Red" buttercream.  Fun little detail and a big hit!  Darth is chocolate with chocolate amaretto frosting, and "Noooo!" is vanilla with cream cheese frosting.  Thanks for looking!

Here's my Star Wars cake!  The mask is actually a plastic cake top as are the two "light sabers" in either corner.  Cream cheese frosting sprayed with green, red, yellow and black on the top.  The "flames" are yellow with orange piping gel.  Sides are sprayed with blue; bottom border is green with blue spayed on top.  The woman who ordered it just flipped over it!!!

This is what my son wanted this year. He helped design it and make it. You can't really tell but the front of the cake says..."The Force is Strong With This One" !

I just delivered this cake.  I borrowed an idea that I found on this website - the flame border.  Done with orange-colored buttercream with red and yellow bag striping to get the flame effect.  Turned out pretty good, I think.  Darth Vader is done in color flow and the background is Wilton Color Mist - the first time I've ever used it.  Overall, I'm happy with it and even better, my customer loved it!

This was my first character cake. I made this for my son's birthday party. In person you couldn't tell that my stars weren't close enough together, so it looked much better. I had originally made 2  colorflow darth's and they both broke, so I traced him on the cake and free handed his features by looking at the pic.

This is for a good friend's grandson who loves Star Wars.  I made 2 11x15 chocolate cakes with white buttercream.  The edible image was too small, so I added to action figures, a chocolate transfer and the flame border.  I think it turned out pretty good.

White cake with all buttercream icing and decorations.  Yes, those are stars, done at the request of my friend.  I used the Wilton spray color on this cake also.  I was going for the night sky, but it is more of a smoky effect.

This was a full sheet cake covered in whipped cream icing (Wilton brand, which holds its shape very well). I made the lava with red piping gel and made a flame border with #18 star tip, I did striped icing with orange, red & yellow in the same bag to achieve the flame colors. The figurines were from the toy isle at Target, that way the keepsake becomes a toy.

Well, I figured it out, I guess.  I needed to put Blues Clues and Star Wars on the same cake and here's what I came up with.  I couldn't find a Blue figurine, so I made him, and let me just say, I hate Wilton fondant.  I bought the stuff because it was already blue, but you can't get it to stick together or dry or anything.  So Blue's a little goofy looking, but the customers loved it.  The boys tore it apart in about 30 seconds, so I guess it didn't really matter all that much how it turned out anyway.

Made like the Spidey cakes (thanks lisa for the awesome directions).....wig form head with mask and garbage bag cape.  Cake was chocolate and white (for the light and dark sides) with fondant on the front painted with silver luster dust.  A big hit at the party!

Cake was airbrushed, then added buttercream flames (striped bag) and buttercream outlines.  Luster dust on his control panel, black sprinkles.  Not happy with this....Vader looks all crooked and I'm not sure the flames look good around him.  The decision to use the black sprinkles looks better on the real cake than the picture, but......oh, well.  It's for a 3ry old, hope he likes it.

This is a Darth Vader I made for a friend who works for Starbucks(as an exec)...hence the white, green and black color scheme.  I've made cakes using this cakepan before and have been using different color schemes cause Black and Grey get boring.

Does anyone have any recommendations for good food dye?  I used gel, some brand I dont remember, but after everyone had eaten they all had black and green tongues and fingers.  I dont want that happening again!  Thanks!
