My son loves Star Wars and when he asked for a homemade Star Wars death star cake for his 9th birthday I nearly fell over!!
I baked 2 cakes using a soccer ball cake tin, then trimmed and used Betty Crocker ready made choc icing in the centre. Then covered in plastic icing and decorated.
The hardest part was the plastic icing as it kept getting holes in it. I am too scared to ask what my now 5 year old wants in October, he got the Star Wars Lava cake last year!
