My soon-to-be 8 year old son wanted a Yoda cake for his birthday this year. I came up with this design by combining a couple of different Star Wars Yoda coloring pages. To help transfer the design to the cake, I traced the back of my design paper with cake gel and, having transferred the image, I could start coloring it in.

I made the frosting using Wilton’s Buttercream frosting recipe and Wilton’s Chocolate Buttercream frosting recipe I used Wilton’s Juniper Green for Yoda’s face coloring, which I think does him justice. For the lightsaber, I used a green-based undertone with a bit of white mixed in, and then put green sugar coloring on top to try and give it that “glowing” look.

Yoda didn’t come to life until I had finished his eyes. They were an intricate part of making Yoda look like Yoda. Multiple layers of frosting were built up on his eyelids to give the effect. I hope this idea helps you to create your own Yoda.
