  1. My son and his fiance are getting married in January and will have a Star Wars themed wedding. My future DIL wants a traditional 3 tier cake but with a twist using Star Wars somehow. She pointed out plenty of cakes where people have used a Death Star on top of the cake which is not to my taste design wise (unbalanced, color scheme, etc). I thought I might attempt to make a cake stand instead which makes it look like it's rising out of the table. Attached is a very crude copy/paste of what I'm thinking. A wedding cake of this size can weigh 30-40 lbs once decorated so want to make sure I'm thinking of good weight distribution as well as design balance. The death star would basically be half a round sphere, flattened on the top to attach to bottom of the cake platter. The bottom layer of the cake will be 14" diameter so the cake platter will be a minimum of 16" and maybe 18" if they decide to decorate down onto the platter itself. The base of the sphere will be 2" less than whatever diameter platter we end up with. That gives me the most weight distribution. One thing I'm worried about is making it too tall and raising the center of gravity even more ... it might end up being less than half a sphere in height to counteract this. The interior of the sphere would be hollow unless you guys think I need to build in cross bracing. Any and all thoughts welcome! BTW I'm starting now so that if it doesn't work out we can go to plan B!
