In my house, we are huge nerds…we love Star Trek, Dr. Who, Marvel and so much more…but most of all…it’s Star Wars.  We are Star Wars nerds to the core. 

I have literally designed so many Star Wars themed parties in my head, I just had to share a few.  Soooo…I did it all for the Wookiee!

Ok, but seriously…in anticipation of the upcoming Solo Movie, I wanted to make a party to celebrate the galaxy’s greatest copilot and my little munchkin’s favorite Star Wars character: Chewbacca!

This party was just a simple spread I put together for fun:)  I kept the decor very simple, with the colors focused around the black and white of my Modern Star Wars printables and the classic brown of Chewbacca.

All the fun goodies were made to look like Chewbacca with exaggerated eyes and yummy chocolate fur.  I made a fun Chewbacca cake.  If you would like to recreate this cake, check out the Chewbacca Cake tutorial toward the end of the post.

For the cupcakes, I made simple chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting and put candy eyes in the frosting so the looked like little Chewie heads peaking over the top of black and white candy cups.

We happen to have several Chewbacca figures at my house (I did mention we were a little Star Wars obsessed, right?)  These particular figures are the Chewbacca and the Chewbacca Bobble Head.

I cut out the Wild & Wookie Cake Topper and glued it to a black and white straw to make the cake topper.  Wookie is totally the best Star Wars party theme…am I right?

For this party, I made two types of cookies.  Gingerbread Wookiees and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Wookies.  Both were as simple as they were adorable!!

This Chewbacca is the Playskool Galatic Heroes Chewbacca.  The backdrop was a simple mixture of black and white polka dot balloons and brown tissue poms.  The backdrop took me about 10 mins to put together and hang.

I used white poster board that I cut into strips and taped the balloons and poms onto the poster board in the shape I was wanting.  Then I could easily hang the poster board as one piece instead of hanging individual pieces.

Star Wars: How to make a Chewbacca Cake.  Want to make a Chewbacca themed cake for your Star Wars party?  

Let’s celebrate the greatest Wookiee of them all with a fun Chewbacca Cake!!!  I am breaking down how to make this Chewbacca Cake from my Wild & Wookiee Star Wars Party!  Here you go…

Materials:

Step 1:

Bake the cakes according to the instructions on the box or recipe.  You will want two large (9″) and two medium (7″) cakes.  This Tiered Springform Pan works PERFECTLY. 

Just use the two biggest sizes twice. Set the cakes onto parchment paper to cool (you can also bake ahead of time and place in the freezer (this helps to keep the cakes super moist!).

Step 2:

Once the cakes are cool, place one larger cake onto your cake stand. Put a layer of frosting on top of the cake.  This should be about .25 to .5 inch thick.  Place another larger cake on top (top side down so the smoother bottom of the cake is facing up.

Step 3:

Repeat the process with the smaller cakes.

Step 4:

Once you have the cakes in place.  Start frosting all the cake surface.  The goal for a Chewbacca cake is to make the frosting look like fur…so the messier the better!  Layer the frosting making sure all the cake is covered.

Step 5:

After you put a layer of frosting on the cake, come back with more frosting and make sections heavier with frosting so it looks like layered fur. 

Once easy way to do this is to place frosting on the cake and then lightly press the icing spatula against the frosting pull away so the frosting gets a little sloppy and “follows” the spatula.

Step 6:

Roll out white and black fondant until it is about  .25 inches thick with a rolling pin.  Using a 1.5-2.5 inch circle cookie cutter (or tracing a lid with a knife…if you don’t have a cookie cutter!), make two white circles. 

Repeat with a smaller circle on black fondant. 

Using a very small amount of water (just a couple drops) “glue” the black circles on to the white circles to make eyes. Cut a strip on black fondant about 6 inches long in a parallelogram.

Cut small rectangles of silver sugar paper out and attach to the black fondant with a few drops of water to make Chewbacca’s belt.

Step 7:

Place the eyes and belt onto the cake.  Your Chewbacca cake is ready to be displayed and enjoyed!  Easy peasy, right!!!

How to make Chewbacca Rice Krispie Treats

Star Wars: How to make Chewbacca Rice Krispie Treats.  Love Chewbacca?  We sure do!  Today I’m sharing these easy peasy Chewbacca Rice Krispie Treats!

Throwing a Star Wars blast?  Whether your party celebrates all things Star Wars, or just the cutest co-pilot in the galaxy, you need some yummy DIY Chewbacca treats in your life!  I am breaking down how to make this Chewbacca Rice Krispie Treats. Here you go…

Materials:

Step 1:

You have two options for starting this recipe.  The first is to make a big batch of rice krispie treats following the original recipe and cute them into small rectangles. Option two would be to buy a bunch of individually packaged rice krispies treats

For this tutorial, I used option two.  I preferred this option because it saved time and they were all super uniform.Step 2:

Cover the top of the Rice Krispie treats with chocolate frosting.  You can spread frosting from a can, but I found using the Pillsbury Pastry Bag to be super convenient and much less messy. 

I simply squeezed out frosting in a quick zig zag pattern to cover the top of the treat.

Looking for an easy DIY Star Wars party treat? These Chewbacc Rice Krispie Treats are adorable and easy to make! Check out the easy tutorial.Step 3:

Once the Krispies were covered with frosting, I used the back of a spoon to blend the frosting all over so it looked like fur. 

To make the frosting stick out in various places and really resemble fur, I lifted the spoon away from the frosting periodically so the frosting would pull away from the treat and give a little “bloop” on top. 

Yep…we are using bloop as a technical term today.

Roll out white and black fondant until it is about .25 inches thick with a rolling pin. Using a .75-1 inch circle cookie cutter (or tracing a lid with a knife…if you don’t have a cookie cutter!), make two white circles. 

Make pupils using the black piping gel and making a very small dot. Allow the fondant to dry for 30 mins or so and then place in the frosting.

Step 5:

Use the black piping gel to make Chewbaca’s utility sash and sprinkle lightly with silver sprinkle.  Easy peasy and of so cute!!

Enjoy your super cute little Chewbaccas!  You know you want to try one!!

The water bottle labels work great on traditional water bottles, but I also figured, Wookiees probably drink stouter stuff that plain water…so we used frappaccino bottles for the “Wookie Water”
