This cake with matching cupcakes was for a dear friend’s son. His only request was neon. Bright colors and neon are all the rage again. It’s funny since I was pretty much his exact age the last time neon was big!
This 10 year old wanted a Star Wars cake. His mom didn’t want intense amounts of food coloring in order to pull it off, so the colors are a little subdued. The red is nice and dark because red icing darkens after it is mixed. Keep that in mind when adding your red colors to icing. It will end up being one or two shades darker than when you first mix it. The space above his name was so the mom could add characters. This is always an option when ordering a character or theme cake.
