Star Wars Cupcakes

There is double the excitement in our house this December, obviously Christmas giddiness is setting in but also another force to be reckoned with – Star Wars mania!

If you have boys (and girls) of the small or indeed large variety that love a bit of Star Wars action then you’ll be excited at the new film release too, and of course I’m joining in with a spot of cake action!

Modelling or flower paste (available in Sainsburys or Tesco)

Gel paste colouring in orange plus another colour for the scarves

Edible ink pen in black (Amazon)

A little pink petal dust (Amazon)

2 – Quilted Christmas Cake


If you’re short of time it’s good to have a quick and easy idea up your sleeve for your Christmas cake.  This quilted version is more a technique than a design and although I’ve just used almond paste (marzipan) you can do it in just the same way with a Christmas cake covered in both almond paste and ready to roll icing.
