Darth Maul Cake

This Star Wars cake inspired by Darth Maul is a little fierce, but it isn’t as challenging as it looks!

Bugles were simply used for the horns on the top of Darth Maul’s head. For the marketings on his face, a template was used to help replicate the pattern. More photos and details on how to make this cake can be found in the how-to post.

(And for a behind-the-scenes look at the inspiration of this cake, watch this TikTok.)

Ahsoka Tano Cake

This Star Wars drip cake is anything but boring. Pulling in elements from Ahsoka Tano herself, this cake features a blue and white white chocolate ganache drip to represent her lekku. The cake is iced in orange buttercream and includes a white design, achieved by using a template, to include her facial markings. Additionally, a DIY Ahsoka Tano cake topper pulls the entire cake together.

Tatooine Sunset Cake

Tatooine is one of my favorite planets in the galaxy, so of course I had to make a Star Wars cake inspired by the sandy landscape of Tatooine. Featuring an ombre buttercream design, crushed graham crackers for the sand, and cake toppers for the moons, this Tatooine sunset cake is the perfect background for R2-D2 and C-3PO’s next adventure.

Mustafar Duel Cake

Cue Battle of the Heroes soundtrack.

What better way to capture the epic Mustafar lightsaber showdown between Anakin and Obi-Wan than with a geode cake to represent the lava surface of the planet?

Queen Amidala Cake

As a child, I was in love with Queen Amidala and her iconic fashion choices. So when thinking of a dessert inspired by The Phantom Menace, I decided to pull in elements of her iconic red dress. Covered in buttercream that emulates the patterns and textures of her dress, I also created edible sugar designs to represent the egg-like elements on the bottom of her dress. Learn how in the recipe below.

X-Wing Brownie Cake

Stay on Target! Stay on Target!

When I was asked to bring a Star Wars dessert for my little cousin’s birthday, I wanted to bring something simple and iconic. This brownie cake features the classic screen from the X-Wings in A New Hope as the pilots race to take down the Death Star. Rather than featuring the distance counter at the bottom, I chose to feature my cousin’s birthday instead.
