Who's a Nerd?

I am a nerd.

Don't believe me? My over 800 x men comics would disagree (and I haven't been buying in a few years... eeek)

Still don't believe me. Well then take a gander at this!




 
 


Bam! Princess Leia/Lauren, ear buns and all.

and wait for it....



Bam! Han/Kevin Solo

and oh that's not all...



Bam! Handmade Millennium Falcon cake (no molds used here, just the sweat and tears from sculpting cake)

And....



Tripp in a Yoda costume that's too big, so it looks like a melting yoda!

This Saturday Kevin and I celebrated our birthdays Star Wars style. We all ate cake and watched two of the original trilogy. Since it was kinda impromptu really only Kevin and I and our friend Matt dressed up. But most everyone did at least bring or wear something star wars inspired :)








And I am quite proud of the cake Kev and I made. I made two cakes, one in a round pan and one in a square. After they cooled we started cutting and putting them together making the shape. We used a hostess cupcake for the cockpit area. Then we used that "poor man's" chocolate mousse (1 box of sugar free instant pudding + 1 tub o' cool whip) as the frosting then used those icing gel thingers from the store for the linework. Kevin did the linework and frosted the cake (with a little help from me... mainly me bossing him around) and I did the cooking... what I'm good at. It did suffer some battle damage during the party, but we dismantled it quite quickly and everyone enjoyed it :)

looks like a fun party and I love your use of the word bam, more people should incorporate it into their daily lives

You make a beautiful Princess Leia; Carrie Fisher no doubt would do a double-take.

First off, you and kev looked beyond amazing in your costumes! Very impressed with how amazing the cake turned out. Seriously great sculpting skills :) Hope fun was had to the power of epic!

Also have to mention that I would have LOVED to attend a Star Wars themed bday bash. Maybe that should be my theme next year?

What an awesome party! I love Star Wars. I remember going to the theater when they re-released the originals when I was in middle school.
Also awesome cake. The fact that you carved it yourself deserves a Gold star. :)
