When I asked our newly minted six-year-old what kind of cake he would like, his reply was a chocolate and vanilla one. I made a chocolate layer cake (with a sprinkling of tiny chocolate chips over top) and iced it with cream cheese frosting. Once that was done, I rummaged through the boys' room to find something interesting to decorate it with. I spotted a figurine of Luke Skywalker and knew that it would be the perfect cake topper. A sprinkling of edible glitter stars left over from The Meeting of the Lord completed things and it looked rather elegant atop the pretty pink glass platter. Though it was a very simple cake, our birthday boy really liked how it looked!
