We have this friend who loves Star Wars. A lot. Maybe more than a lot. He also happens to be an artist. He creates amazing things. He recently spent some time creating things for the latest Star Wars movie. He had landed his dream job. Did I mention he loves Star Wars?
We recently celebrated his birthday which meant I finally had an excuse to make a full on BB-8 cake.
I started with a basic white cake and changed out the vanilla for orange flavoring. The frosting also got orange flavoring. The result was a orange creamsicle flavor. Yum!
I followed this marvelous tutorial from How to Cake It for guidance. Rather than using fondant, I used modeling chocolate to cover the cake. I’ve found it’s a little easier to work with, tastes a little better, and is much easier to make. The results are still stunning.
