I always love to do themed food, even if it's something as simple as renaming a packaged snack. So when we planned a Star Wars party for Max's 5th birthday, we had to have Star Wars Party Food.
This is the second post about Max's Star Wars 5th birthday party… you can read the first post here.
Our Star Wars Party Food:
- HOTH DOGS
- SPACE CHIPS : Doritos
- DROID PARTS : Chex Mix
- WOOKIEE COOKIES : Cocoa & Rice Krispy Treats
- BOBA FETTUCINE : Pasta salad made with fettuccine
- DROID ARMY : R2D2 shaped plastic Easter eggs, stuffed with Star Wars fruit snacks
- GRAPE SABERS : Grapes on a bamboo skewer, with a duct tape-covered wine cork at one end for the handle
- ASTEROID PUFFS : Pirate's Booty
- JEDI JUICE : Fruit juice pouches and water
For the cake, I didn't want to challenge myself too much to the actual execution, so we created this “AT-AT Takedown” scene. The cake itself is just a lemon cake (Max's request) with white frosting to go with the frozen tundra of Hoth.
We topped it with a LEGO A-Wing fighter (yes, we know it's technically the wrong ship!) and put an AT-AT Walker model behind it, with wire wrapped around its legs, recreating a famous scene in The Empire Strikes Back.
