It’s a Star Wars party!

Everything was Star Wars for Cameron’s fifth birthday party.

The cake: Yoda, lime flavoured as requested by the birthday boy.

I tried a white chocolate and fondant mix to cover the cake. It was nice, but it didn’t go that well with the lime cake (a white chocolate mud cake would be a perfect match – next time). The kids did not care at all.

The light sabers: It was a craft activity, a physical activity, and something to take home. Perfect.

Making light sabers is serious business

It’s amazing what you can do with pool noodles, duct tape, and stickers. (Tip: To half the pool noodles, use a good bread knife.)

The battle: Outside and epic.

The food: I didn’t go all out on themed food this time as I put all my effort into the cake and the light sabers. Kids are easy to please thankfully.

The bottles: Customised by my lovely daughter and her awesome drawing skills – though Jabba looks a lot like something else… a tadpole, bean sprout, or *ahem*.

The party bags: Simple white paper bags with a Storm Trooper seal. Inside was just a little something to take home with the light sabers.
