A friend asked me to make a Storm Trooper cake with buttercream. I looked for examples on line and pretty much only found fondant (which I don't use). I found one you tube showing how to make one with buttercream. I attempted it and put my own twist on it. It's not perfect and could definitely use some tweaking but I thought some other moms may be able to use the idea and make it even better. I did a tutorial on www.mythreetinythings.blogspot.com showing how I made it. Hopefully it will help a mom who needs a Storm Trooper cake and doesn't want to hire someone to do it. It's definitely homemade looking but the kids don't care! I'll be attempting it again next month for my own son's birthday!
