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!

12 – Buche de Noel Cake


A traditional Christmas recipe for a Yule log, just switched around a bit to turn it into a showstopper cake instead,  I love the stripy inside it makes – a perfect winter dessert!  It’s hugely rich and decadent (as you’ll see from the amount of chocolate needed) and the filling is a chocolate French buttercream.

11- Toblerone Fondue Cake

DSC07392It seems that in our house competitive Toblerone eating is very much a Christmas tradition!  When Toblerone sent me a bunch of bars (after hiding them quickly) I thought I’d come up with a toblerone based dessert for serving up.
