Last year, for my son's first birthday, we had a Star Wars theme, since it's his favorite thing (only the trilogy, he won't even pay attention to 1-3  Wink ). I made his cake, a chocolate fudge death star cake. Now, this pictures don't do it any justice. First of all, this was my first time decorating a cake. Second of all, we didn't get any pictures until we were at the location, after a fifteen minute drive in which the cake melted from the intense heat that day. Third of all, the icing turned blue over night...frosting made from Wilton black food coloring turned blue...but anyway, I'm super proud regardless because I made a death star cake for my son's first birthday  Grin

This year we are doing TROGDOR the Burninator!!!! I wanted to do Star Trek, but hubbie wants to wait until our son can do the Vulcan live long and prosper gesture and I want to make him a uniform for the occassion anyway, so next year would be better  Wink

Great job!  I have always wanted to try my hand at doing a conceptual cake but have never been brave enough.
Also, the picture of your son with the lightsabre is beyond adorable!!

If hubby could see this right now, he'd start hyperventilating (in a very mature and manly fashion, of course).  Totally awesome cake.  I'm guessing birthdays at your place heaps of fun! 

I have heard that if you colour icing black it's better to start with chocolate icing...did you do that and have it still turn blue?  Must have been annoying at any rate. 

...Those pictures are so making me hungry...

It was homemade butter cream frosting, so it started off white. Maybe that was the problem. It started out a nice death star gray.

That was my first time throwing a party and I had so much fun Grin I had games and everything planned too, but no kids showed up (it was one of those busy weekends where a lot of our invitees had a wedding to go to).

The cupcakes had the rebel symbol on them.

Impressive that a one-year-old already had such great taste in movies! Wink  You did a great job on the cake!  I'm excited about the Star Trek cake, too.

Your son is pretty darn cute.  He's very lucky to have a mom who'll make him a Death Star cake.  Wink

I love it!  It looks both awesome and tasty, and I like that you used long candles stuck in at cool angles.
