Yoda Birthday Cake

Pin It
At the dinner table a few weeks ago, I asked Rascal what kind of cake she thought that her Dad would like for his birthday. I was expecting her to use her stock answer of "brown cake" or possibly "yellow cake", but before she could say a word, Mr Tartankiwi jumped out of his chair and urgently whispered in her ear.

A grin spread across Rascal's face and she said "Daddy wants a Yoda cake!" 

... and she didn't forget about it and over the next few weeks she was heard to tell various people that "Mummy is going to make Daddy a Yoda cake!"

- I guess it serves me right for asking!

The inspiration for the Yoda Cake was this Baby Youda T-shirt. I was lucky enough to win one for Wee Man and Mr Tartankiwi was so taken with it that I had to order a man sized version for him.
Um yes, the door handle is pointing straight upwards- its called childproofing
I love the way that the cake turned out. Not only does it look good, but it tastes good too (Moist chocolate cake with peppermint icing- YUM!)

I also love that Mr Tartankiwi came to the realisation all on his own that since I have put all this effort into making his cake, he needs to make a special birthday cake for me in a few months time!

To marvel at other people's creativity- go here.

  15. Fantastic cake!
    I live with a load of Star Wars fans although it's all calmed down a bit recently (except for husband...). I'm waiting for it all to kick off again with the 3d films coming out.
