i want this! i am not on this caliber of cake constructing yet, but perhaps next year…
from coco cake’s blog:
Fun fun times! Moishe, the yellow eyed monster dude from “Where The Wild Things Are“, was the request for today’s cake of the day. Chocolate cake with peppermint buttercream covered in fondant, and Coco Cake’s rendition of Moishe’s hilarious face.
To make Moishe, first I baked, cooled and frosted (with peppermint buttercream) a 7 inch chocolate layer cake. Next I covered the cake with white fondant for a smooth finish. Next I made the eyeballs, nose and teeth using fondant. Then I used food coloring to transform the icy cool white buttercream into two colors of “hair.” Using a “grass” frosting tip, I mixed the two frosting colors in the same bag, then piped the hair onto Moishe’s face, making sure to give him long bangs that poke into his eyeballs– just like me!!! Because Moishe has a stripey shirt, I made sure the cake board was striped and the ribbon was striped too.

We’ve all seen a million Star Wars cakes, but Star Wars Mighty Muggs cakes are a new one on me!
Chewie and Storm Trooper cakes
Craftster user doyouloveanapple made these cakes for her partner using a homemade marshmallow fondant. They were based off of the Star Wars Mighty Muggs toys which give them a super cute pop look which lends itself nicely to the cake medium.
The storm trooper was a lemon cake with lemon curd filling and a vanilla butter cream which Chewbacca was a chocolate cake with a chocolate butter cream filling.
doyouloveanapple does give one valuable piece of advice for those looking to make their own Star Wars cakes…
“Fondant that is painted with black food dye does not taste good and dyes your mouth black!”
yikes! good to know!

I love cake. Ok so I dont love eating cake so much as I love looking at cakes. Im obsessed with watching all the different cake competitions on Food Network, Ace of Cakes and wedding cake specials on WE (yes I hate to admit but I occasionally watch WE just for the cakes). I just love watching the amazing artistic creations made out of sugar and flour. Anywho my good friend Jenn tweeted today about the most amazing cake in the history of amazing cakes. Behold…
Its a girl! Its Darth Vader! Its adorable! Im just going to go out on a limb and say this is the best baby shower cake ever. I mean look at the details! Theres ruffles and bows and bottles…and Lord Vader. And lets not overlook the amazing 90s-rific airbrushing with the planet scape in the background. Bravo…bravo.

in just a few days, my boyfriend, pk, will turn yet another year older. i am throwing him a party at our apartment in celebration and of course, it will be horror themed. in previous years, his birthday has mysteriously coincided with the season premier of ‘Lost.’ therefore, for two years in a row, pk has enjoyed a ‘Lost’ themed birthday, Dharma cakes included:
two years before that, i made a masterpiece teenage mutant ninja turtle cake in the scummiest dorm kitchen of the University of Illinois. sometimes i surprise myself:
