Next I whipped up some homemade frosting. Then I grabbed a Ziploc type baggie and inserted my cake tip to the inside, snipped the bag and added the other tip pieces and viola! instant disposable cake decorating baggie. These work great for small amounts of frosting. Trust me I've tried it to decorate sugar cookies with lots of frosting and all I got was busted bag seems! Ahh... it's the little tips that save others headache!
Then take a new color and add that to the picture. I filled in the body with black, mixed up some peach for the face and hand, yellow for the hair and a nice green light saber. Normally after I outline I would have made sure to put the face on before filling in over the top, however I was working with a picture that was only 3.5 inches in size. I do not recommend this! It was very hard to do, but that was the size I needed for the cake. The bigger the picture, the easier it is to make the fine details on it.
There you have it! A very happy birthday boy! I finished making the face by using edible pens. Ok so the pen isn't edible but the 'ink' is. YUMMY and FUN!
And no I didn't forget about Little Boy Jr.'s birthday cake either, his was a bit less complicated. All he wanted was a bobber cake! He loves fish and fishing even more. I took two 1 quart bowls and baked my cake in there, bake a small ramekin too and assemble and frost! He loved his special cake too!
