Chewbacca Cake!

Happy Birthday Ginger!

Ok, so this post is very late... Ginger's birthday was back in July... what can I say... I've been busy! I love the variety of interests that my daughter has.... from girly things to Star Wars!  Her newest obsession (since seeing "Star Wars: The Force Awakens") is Chewy, so when I asked her what kind of a cake she wanted for her party the answer (very loudly) was "Chewbacca!!"
I searched the Internet for ideas, but I'm not artistic enough to attempt to do Chewy's face in great detail, so I really wanted something that was very "Chewbacca" without it having to be a headshot... and I found this!  I loved that it had elements of Chewy (the fur, the belt) without me having to make a "Pinterest Fail" of his face. 
This cake wasn't super difficult, but it was VERY tedious!  All those little brown "fur" triangles took forever to make & place, but I do like the result.  I found a little Chewbacca bobblehead figurine on Ebay for under $10 and decided to use that as the cake topper... then Ginger has a cute figurine for her dresser when the party is over!
She was thrilled with the cake and loves her Chewy figurine, so it all worked out in the end!
