My boyfriend’s 28th birthday is tomorrow! He’s the same “Mr. Fix it Boyfriend” that helps me with EVERYTHING from unclogging sinks to picking up ice for my parties! I decided to celebrate the day of his birthday, 28 long years ago, by creating a Star Wars celebration for him (because he likes Star Wars, but mostly because I like planning parties!)
I gathered up all of the supplies I had to make some Star Wars goodies and then went grocery shopping. Here is what I ended up with:
I already have an R2D2 cake pan so I decided to make a funfetti cake (everyone LOVES funfetti cake, right?)
Tip: Make sure to spray a cake pan with PAM or other non-stick cooking spray before adding the cake batter. This will help release the cake from the pan after you take it out of the oven.
I still need to add a few final touches, but it looks rather tasty from here...
I also have the William and Sonoma Star Wars cookies cutters (a Christmas gift from my boyfriend’s sister)
And the cupcake stencils (a gift for myself that I bought just for this occasion).
I'll be adding the final touches (cocoa and powered sugar) to these scrumptious goodies tomorrow too!
Using the supplies from the store I created “light sabers’ from the pretzels, dipping chocolate and food coloring (I used red and blue).
Tip: After dipping pretzels in chocolate, lay them on on a plastic wrap covered plate/platter ,and then put them in the freezer. This will let them dry and harden faster, and not stick to the plate!
Lastly, some clip art that I found online and turned into party decorations…
Stay Tuned for the Star Wars Celebration Tomorrow!!
P.S. My entire townhouse smells like ICING!
