Okay, so I confess it. I am a teensy weensy bit of a Star Wars geek. Other names I used to get called at school were ‘Star Wars’ or ‘Eighties Throwback’. It may have had something to do with the Darth Vader rucksack I had strapped to my back and my super cool retro ski-jacket….and the Darth Vader watch ….and the Star Wars pin badges….
As I said. Just a little bit of a fan.
My enthusiasm for Star Wars has transferred to my 5 year old son, who I have been brainwashing with Star Wars knowledge since he was about 2. I think his knowledge of Star Wars may actually top trump mine now. He is a Massive fan of the Star Wars Lego games, and so for his fifth birthday he wanted a Star Wars Lego themed party.
I didn’t get carried away in the slightest (oh yes I did).
I had bags of fun making all the little Star Wars Lego figures which I tried to get as close to actual size as I could. It was very time consuming! I do wish I’d had more time to make all the studs for the top of the cake – instead I had to make do with printing them on using a lego brick.
Check out more pictures of the cake below, and I will be returning with some more pictures from the party at a later date!
May the force be with you!
