Planet Hoth Wampa Cake...Star Wars!

My little 6 year old had his big Star Wars birthday party today. We made lots of fun food for his party and will be posting tons of Star Wars party food ideas through out the next couple of weeks. I will share some how tos on certain things that we made and put them all in one post when we are finished. We tried to think up original ideas and change things up from our Star Wars party last year.

My boys always love scene cakes. Last year was our Garbage Masher cake and this year he wanted the Planet Hoth Wampa cake. Let me first start off by saying that I am not a cake decorater and really had no idea what I was doing. I just started putting this together and this is what we came up with. All of you Star Wars geeks will totally get this cake. I tried to come as close as I could to the scene where Luke is captured by the Wampa. The Wampa and Luke are toys by the way.

I started out by making my walls using pretzel rods and white chocolate. I just glued them together on wax paper with the white chocolate and let dry. You can do this a few days in advance. I decided to use pretzel rods instead of rice krispie treats because I thought they would hold a lot better…it was a better choice for sure! It will look like this…

I broke pretzel rods in half to make the corners. I didn’t want the cave to look so boxy. When you get them all done then take some boxes or something big to support them standing. Glue them together with the chocolate and let that dry. I transfered mine, but was so afraid it would pull apart. You might want to do this around the baked cake so save you from transfering. We baked 3 cakes in a 10×15 pan. We cut off the corners to round it up. Once you get the wall around the cake it will look like this…

We then squeezed white cookie frosting on top of the top pretzel rods and placed graham crackers around the top and let that dry. We put white chocolate on Luke’s feet and press that onto a graham cracker with him standing and let that dry. We flipped him over and glued on the other graham crackers with cookie frosting and let dry. I had some extra white fondant so we make ice cycles with that and press onto the graham crackers draping over the sides. Then we frosting all of it. We made other ice cycles for the bottom and just pressed those in. We also made some bones that were in the scene as well. We pressed in the Wampa and the light saber. That’s about it!

This definitely was a hit and my now 6 year old just loved it!

  1. Thank you for this blog! I never would have attempted this on my own, but made it for my son's 7th birthday this weekend and it was a big hit! I was worried Luke would fall down, but he hung upside down for a few days until the cake was gone! Thanks, again!

    That's awesome! Isn't it funny how boys are still into Star Wars? My twins are very into it. Thanks for sharing at our Handmade Tuesdays party.

  3. What a great idea!
    When my son was a boy, he LOVED Star Wars!
    Wish I could have made him something as cool as this!
