Step 3. Blow them away with a Star Wars Cake
But don’t blow your schedule by baking it. Instead just order one of these super fun and delicious Baskin-Robbins Star Wars Ice Cream Cakes.
By having a phenomenal cake as the highlight of the party or playdate, you take a ton of pressure off yourself.
And it’s an Ice Cream Cake!!!
I LOVE ice cream cakes. In fact, we celebrate most of our family birthdays with ice cream cakes instead of regular cakes. They taste so good and they’re a more unique twist on a traditional party cake.
I also love that when I buy a Baskin-Robbins ice cream cake, I don’t feel so guilty thinking I could have just baked it myself. I know I couldn’t just whip up one of these cakes on my own.
Your Star Wars Party or Playdate will instantly be a huge hit when your kids and their friends see (and taste) the cake.
Baskin-Robbins’ new Star Wars: Darth Vader Cake is a classic sheet cake with blue icing, red, black and grey trim which features a collectible Darth Vader helmet decoration that makes the iconic movie villain’s infamous breathing sound.
The new Star Wars: The Force Awakens Cake is a classic sheet cake decorated with orange icing with black, grey and white trim which features a collectible BB8 decoration that turns from left to right locking into its base while its head spins, making for action packed fun after the party. The cake also features a raised backdrop with Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, Rey, Finn and Poe Dameron.
You can customize either ice cream cake with your favorite Baskin-Robbins ice cream flavor and order either in-store or online at baskinrobbins.com/onlineordering. It’ll be available for pick-up within 24 hours of ordering.
Whether you’re planning on taking just your own kids to see the movie or a few of their friends are coming along, turn it into more than a trip to the movies with some extra activities and one of these cakes.
