Death Star Lego Cake with Fondant Star Wars Figures

A long time ago, in a kitchen far, far away...

...a Star Wars Lego cake was created for a wonderful boy!  This was my first commissioned cake.  I had to think long and hard as to what an 11 year old boy might like Star Wars-wise.  I wanted to make sure whatever I came up with was "cool" and not "babyish"  I think it turned out well, and from what his mom tells me, it was a success!  It was such fun to make!  

The figures are hand-sculpted to (hopefully) look like Lego Star Wars guys.  The lego bricks are solid chocolate.  I found lego brick ice cube trays online (eBay I think?), poured melted chocolate into them and these were the result!  

The death star is a chocolate cake. The bottom (blue) cake is chocolate as well.  

 Look at these cute little guys!


  1. How did you do the Death Star - as far as making it round and covering it? I'm interested in attempting something like this for a friend's birthday next year.

  2. Hi there,
    I used a ball cake pan (bake in 2 halves) to make the death star, then covered in chocolate ganache and then fondant. If you don't have a ball pan, you can use a pyrex bowl, but the top will then be slightly flat...LEt me know if you have any more questions!
