Do or do not. There is no try.

When I got the call with an order for a Star Wars cake, I thought, “No problem.” I’ve done a storm trooper, Boba Fett, and a few light sabers. Then she said, “Who’s the new female lead? Can you put her on the cake?” “Rey? I can try!” I have done a portrait before, so I figured the worst case scenario would be doing the same thing, but with Rey’s face.

There weren’t too many options for tracing a photo of Rey. I settled on a picture of Rey with BB-8 over more complicate things like the movie poster. I don’t know why, but I had some trouble with BB-8. I ended up scraping him off and starting over. As Qui-Gon said, “Remember: Your focus determines your reality.” My lunch break and a few deep breaths must have been the secret to unlocking the force, because it was smooth sailing on the second try. I’m super proud of how this cake turned out!
