To make this cake, bake 2 - 9 x 12 cakes. We love chocolate, but if you made vanilla you could dye the cake batter the colors of your lightsabers.
Next cut each cake into thirds - the long way. Because the cake is so big, we covered a large section of the counter with foil and laid the cake out there. We sang happy birthday in the kitchen. Lay your three sections out diagonally. We used the middle section as the handle because it is the thickest part of the lightsaber.
Cut the tip into this shape. Carve a little off the edges of the saber along each side to give it a rounder look.
Lay the second light saber diagonally across the first. Cut out the section where they intersect. Now you are ready to frost the cakes.
We covered the handles with chocolate fudge frosting. Then we frosted the red light saber. The frosting was kind of dark pink, so we sprinkled red sugar sprinkles over the frosting. We colored the section where the lightsabers clash green. Jonah says that is what happens when light sabers clash. (who knew?) Mom thought an all blue lightsaber would look better, but Jonah insisted on green!
