Coolest Clone Trooper Birthday Cake

My son is a huge Star Wars fan and so am I. I wanted to make a Storm Trooper Cake for his 5th birthday but after looking at his Star Wars Annuals, I decided that the Clone Trooper looked easier. This website was a massive inspiration and the tips from other cake makers were a big help.

So for this Clone Trooper Birthday Cake I used a buttermilk cake recipe from Nigella Lawson, this cake doesn’t crumble too much making it easy to work with. This was the first time I have worked with fondant icing and was surprised at how easy it was to work with. I bought the white and black and added food colouring to the blue. A little icing goes a long way.

Once I cut out the cake and built up the shape, I covered the whole thing with buttercream and then the fondant. It definitely helps to cut out templates out of paper first. I think it looks fab and it tasted good too!
