Star Wars Birthday Party Ideas:  Day 2

Day 2 of birthday projects continued with creating a yummy treat that any Star Wars Fan would love!  Han Solo in Carbonate chocolate bars!  Sounds yummy, right?

I bought some chocolate melting candies, melted them on a low power setting and added some drops of vegetable oil.  A couple of years ago, I found these molds:

They are supposed to be ice cube trays, but they work great as candy molds!  As for the melting candies, I used a local Milwaukee brand.  I really don’t like the Wilton melting candies.  Yes, you can find them ANYWHERE, but I’ve had them burn on me in the micro before, even on a low setting.  Blah!

Melting candies:  not quite enough yet!

Death Star:  Day 2 – Decorating

While Han was cooling, we went back to our work on the Death Star.  It was dry, so next was to add some detail.  My husband had the awesome idea of using duct tape!  So, we proceeded to cut duct tape to make it look like an awesome Death Star!

Building a Death Star is hard work!  She did have fun, though.

Ok Mamma, it’s time to put the camera down and get back to work!

Decorating done! Now to take out the beach ball.

After removing the beach ball, we worked on the laser “bowl” of the Death Star. I took the plastic cup I had used during drying and cut the cup in two.   I did this because I didn’t have a small bowl to put in the hole, and the top of the cup fit my hole perfectly.  I didn’t want a super deep laser “bowl” either, so I trimmed the cup down a bit and patched it back together with duct tape.  Not the prettiest, and I probably could have come up with something better…but this is a piñata for a kid’s party.  It’s going to be destroyed soon anyway, and now I have a easy way to get candy in it!

Death Star is complete!  The Force was with us!
