March is National Craft Month, so I would like to start the month with a craft, food craft.

This last weekend was my son’s birthday, and he and my MIL created a cake of his design, a Angry Birds/Lego Star Wars Ice Planet Hoth Cake. It was adorable and he loved it.

The base was made from marshmallows, piled together like an igloo. Thick white frosting created a blanket of snow, and large pieces of sugar made it shine. Toothpicks were stuck into the lego pieces which were stuck into the cake, allowing them to hover just above the sticky “snow”.

My son created the snow speeder crash landing into the enemy, and my daughter created the rebel flag.
