May The Force Be With YOU!

Before I even entered the Tent for The Great American Baking Show, we spent a day of filming where I was baking and playing video games at home. I knew I wanted to feature something that would show American how big of a geek I was (heehee) so OF COURSE I themed it as a Star Wars cake! Also secretly hoping for tapping into the Force in the tent! 

The cake is decorated with Swiss Meringue buttercream where I created a galaxy effect with different colors of buttercream layered and smoothed over the course of 50 something rotations.  And decorated with little Darth and Yoda fondant figurines. I was SO HAPPY with the way Darth and Yoda came out. Can you spot the Episode VI easter egg? ;) 

This cake can be spotted in Episode 2: Cookie Week. Watch it on ABC!
