May the Force Be With You, Again; Part Two, Making a Galaxy Cake Board
Like many others I have been guilty of leaving an unfinished , silver cake board. Now, I don't think that is always bad, but unless you're Mike McCarey , your cakes will probably only be improved by decorating your board as well.
For the Star Wars cake I wanted my board and cake to match and look like a galaxy far, far, away.
First I colored my fondant a deep blue and covered the board. Then I randomly airbrushed with deep blue and black:
Then I remembered gradeschool art class and grabbed myself a (New) toothbrush. I poured a little white airbrush color onto the brush and flicked it onto the board:
I then went back in with white in the airbrush to make little galaxy-ish shapes
I colored the cake itself the same way (actually I did the cake first, which is why it doesn't look quite as nice as the board in my opinion as I was still getting a feel for it)
