Clone Wars Cupcakes

So, I learned something new this week. We were asked to make some Clone Wars cupcakes and really, this is what I knew about Star Wars beforehand:
  • There is a dark side and a not so dark side.
  • Having the force be with you is a good thing.
  • I knew that Luke's father is Darth Vader, psht! Come on!
  • Yoda kicks ass and is a wise green little fellow.
  • I like saying the word Padawan. Padawan! Padawan!
  • Storm Troopers are bad!
  • Light Sabers look cool.
  • All of this happens in a galaxy far, far away.

You can tell I pay a lot of attention when Howard talks about Star Wars. Which he tried to explain to me all over again when I was doing the dishes (I'm trapped!). Well, luckily he does know a thing or two about Star Wars and was a tremendous help on making these Clone Wars cupcakes with me.

This is Anakin Skywalker who later succumbs to the dark side and becomes Darth Vader. In the Clone Wars, he is an apprenticed to Obi-Wan Kenobi. See? He even looks a bit mean in fondant.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is a Jedi Knight who takes Anakin as a Padawan on the path to Jedi Knighthood.

Yoda is an ancient and revered Jedi Master. Yoda assigns Anakin Skywalker a young Padawan - the brash 14-year old Togruta named Ahsoka Tano.

Ahsoka Tano was Anakin Skywalker's Padawan!

That's a clone up there. So that's why it's called Clone Wars!

Yikes, now there's a troop of them!

Here's some light foreshadowing for you. Howard totally disregarded my joke and simply commented on my bad lighting. Hmph!

Happy 5th birthday Leo!
