What are you most proud of? The lights on the Death Star. Took a long time, but they were kind of fun. And I think they turned out pretty well.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Plan ahead. Piecing fondant like this takes a LOT of time. Just be prepared for that.

It's been a while since you posted this cake but I am hoping to hear back from you. I would like some simple info on this cake: what size layers and is the death star cake or covered styrofoam. If cake what did you use to make the death star? I understand that you winged it but any additional information would be awesome. This cake is the best I've seen for Star Wars themed birthday parties. My grandson decided he wants Star Wars this year and asked me to make his cake....he's going to be 5 the end of January.

Thank you for the compliments! I did wing it, but not on sizes. I never wing it on cake sizes. It has been a while since I did this one, though, so I'm trying to remember. I'm relatively certain I did an 8" and a 10" round for the cake tiers, but could be a bit off on that. The Death Star is cake. I used the Wilton Ball pan to make it. To make sure I'm giving you the right sizes, you could always stack your pans with the ball pan on top to measure, but I'm pretty sure I'm close because I believe the ball pan is 6" in diameter. This was definitely a challenging cake, so good luck! I'm sure your grandson will love whatever you end up making. 5 year olds are awesomely non-judgmental like that. :) Good luck, and have fun!

I have one other question that I forgot to ask. Did you use 2 layers of the smaller cake tier and 2 layers for the larger cake tier? It almost looks like you used 4 layers of each but that could be a trick of the eye. Your help is most appreciated.

They are both two layers each. I can see how they would look like four, but no, I only used two.
