Star Wars Birthday - Preview

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!
