Welcome , my dear friends ….. to STAR WAR GALAXY …… Welcome to the Death Star Canteen …..
“Impressive. Most impressive. Obi-Wan has taught you well. You have controlled your fear. Now, release your anger. Only your hatred can destroy me.”
Last month special friend of mine (my best friend’s husband) celebrated his 40th birthday ….. not only was he born on Halloween, but his whole life all he wanted to be on Halloween was a STORMTROOPER …..
Long story short…… we decided to throw him a surprise Star Wars party complete with Stormtrooper costume and Death Star Canteen
Since this party was much bigger then our usual family birthday parties I knew just Birthday Cake won’t do it.
I decided to make STAR WARS SWEET TABLE with Death Star birthday cake as centerpiece surrounded by Star Wars theme cupcakes …. cookies ….. gourmet popcorn ….. cake pops ….. and of course …..jars of Halloween candy …..it was after all Halloween edition Star Wars Sweet Table.
This STAR WARS Sweet Table served 50 – 60 guests and it included:
- 24 Eggnog Cupcakes with Spiced Rum Frosting
- 24 Chocolate Stout Cupcakes with Bailey’s Frosting
- 24 Individual Cups of Praline Popcorn
- 24 Individual Cups of Chocolate Mixed Popcorn
- 12 Star Shaped Chocolate Cake Pops
- 12 Chocolate Pretzel Rod Ligthsabers
- Assorted Halloween Candy
- Giant Pixie Sticks
For decorations we used black plastic table clothes for sweet table and backdrop with stick-on glow in-a-dark stars ….. few STAR WARS posters ….. handmade sign …..
Cupcakes were displayed on silver and red serving trays ….. DEATH STAR Cake was placed in the middle on raised platform draped with golden linen tablecloth and candles in glass jars with gem stones were placed on each side of the platform.
I decorated the cupcakes with plastic lightsabers and Star Wars cupcake picks. Popcorn cups were decorated with Star Wars stickers ….
I also purchased inexpensive wooden frames to use for identify each dessert ….
STAR WARS Sweet Table turned out fantastic …… Death Star cake was a huge hit ….. birthday boy was SPEECHLESS ….
“May The Force Be With You”
Don’t forget …. Keep Smiling …. Keep Cooking!
