Coolest Chewbacca Star Wars Cake

My sons and I decided to make my husband a Chewbacca Star Wars cake since they are into that now. I got the basic shape idea from other photos online and various Star Wars books we have at home.

I used 2 sheet cake sized pans and then put them together and carved the outline of Chewbacca using a knife. I made it a 2 layer yellow cake and made a filling of vanilla pudding with sliced bananas. I then just used about 2 cans of chocolate frosting from the store to make the fur and spread it so it looked like hair–I used lots of chocolate frosting!

For the eyes I colored store bought white frosting with black Wilton food dye and used mini brown M&M’s for the pupils with a speck of white frosting for a reflection. The nose is made from black icing and the mouth is also black icing.

For teeth I used white Tic Tacs with a pink Laffy Taffy (or some such candy) for the tongue. For his ammo shoulder strap (I don’t know what this is called) I used large marshmallows and a Hershey bar broken into the individual pieces. Enjoy!
