Coolest Lightsaber Birthday Cake

My son’s best friend was having a Star Wars party. He requested a blue Lightsaber Birthday Cake. I made a funfetti 1/2 sheet cake, frosted it in a buttercream icing and went to work!

First I printed out a reverse picture of the Star Wars logo. I placed it under plastic wrap, traced it with icing and then transferred it onto the cake. After I filled it in, I moved on to the Lightsaber. I took my son’s Lightsaber and practiced drawing it a few times on a sheet of paper until I felt good about it.

I then drew it out with a toothpick, then in icing, filled it in and sprinkled blue sprinkles on it to make it “glow”. I finished it off with a red M&M!

It was a huge hit! Now my son wants one for his birthday, but has told me it has to be different!

  1. Your cake is so cute! To make it different for your son try using Twinkies to make the Light Sabre 3-d on top of the sheet cake!
    Good Luck!

  2. Love this idea… my son will be 5 on Tuesday and he wants a Star Wars cake… This will be perfect – easy and very attractive!
