I found the most adorable mini Star Fighter cakes on this website so I decided to attempt a LARGER version!
First off I went and bought two black (front and back) foam boards and cut out the two wings. I then used white duck tape to add the details.
I made two regular sized bundt cakes, leveled the bottoms of each cake and placed them, bottom to bottom, with some icing in between to keep them together. This was the best way I could think of to make a round cake without going and buying a cake form.
I then made a batch of rice crispy treats, and while they were still warm I spooned some in the hole in the middle of the top bundt cake. I mounded it higher than the bundt to make it look like the front “cockpit”. After letting the rice crispy treats cool, I shaped the cockpit a little better and covered it with a sheet of black fondant which I purchased at Michaels. I had to wet the fondant a little bit so it would form to the rice crispy treats. A damp paper towel seemed to work just fine. Then I iced the whole cake with butter cream icing.
To attach the wings I taped two paper towel rolls (covered in white duck tape) to the wings. And on the ends that I stuck in the cake, I covered the roll with plastic for sanitary reasons. I had to cut holes out of the sides of the cake to get the paper towel rolls to fit as well.
To make the display complete I placed the cake on top of a tall glass cylinder on the table to make it look like it was flying.
