Hey guys!!! We just celebrated the boys 10th birthday last week, can you believe that they are TEN?!! We had an epic sleepover birthday party for the first time ever. I still can’t believe how late these kids can stay up! 1 am was my limit but they were still going strong at 2 and might have finally fallen asleep by 3. In the morning!! Ha ha! It will only get worse as they become teenagers I’m told. So, I wanted to do something simple for their birthday cake. It doesn’t get much easier than this Easy Chewbacca Chocolate Cheesecake!
I love the idea of working smarter, not harder. This cake was a last minute thing. I actually went to the grocery store looking for cupcakes that I could repurpose with a Star Wars theme. Not finding cupcakes I picked up a small chocolate cheesecake and a tub of chocolate frosting with an idea…
Then when I got home I made a large rectangle of solid chocolate by melting semi sweet chocolate chips in the microwave. I used the same method for the smaller grey rectangles using white chocolate chips and black food colouring. When those hardened I quickly created our cake!
Very simply I covered the entire cheesecake with frosting then used a fork to get a furry look. Finally I layered on the chocolate pieces and voila! Chewbacca!! Honestly, this could not have been easier to create! I love when things work out like that… especially when in the middle of crazy party planning and coordinating.
