This is a great cake recipe for a delicious, and healthy BB-8 Star Wars birthday cake that is easy to make. You don’t even need to use an oven to prepare the cake!
Preparation is very simple and fun, especially for people who like art. 😉
Why is the cake healthy?
The cake is healthy because it contains healthy ingredients such as nuts, dates, cocoa, maple syrup, lemon, and carrot. Thanks to these ingredients, the cake keeps you filled for a long time, so you can easily keep a slim figure and a flat stomach.
What the cake recipe consists of?
To make the BB-8 birthday cake recipe come true we need:
- 2 glasses of nuts, i.e. almonds or hazelnuts *
- 2 glasses of dates or other dried fruits *
- 2-3 tablespoons of cocoa
- 1 lemon
- 2-4 tablespoons of maple syrup **
- 2 cups of cashews *
- 1 carrot (for decoration)
- a few raisins or dried black figs or dried berries (for decoration) ***
* Nuts and dates should be soaked beforehand, then they are easier to mix.
** You can use agave syrup or honey instead of maple syrup.
*** I used some activated charcoal for decoration, but I think dried dark fruit will look great too.
A cake is healthy if you are not allergic to any of the ingredients, especially nuts. Always consult your doctor before making any changes to your diet.
How to make a cake?
Time needed: 20 minutes.
Below are the necessary steps to make the cake.
- Mix the nuts
The cake consists of two layers. To make the chocolate layer, first mix the nuts, then add the dates and cocoa and mix again.
- Form the cake
Form the head and body of BB-8 from the obtained mass and put it in the refrigerator.
- Prepare the cream (frosting)
Mix cashews with squeezed lemon juice and maple syrup.
- Spread the frosting
Spread the cashew cream on the cooled chocolate layer.
- Decorate the cake
The only thing left to decorate the cake. Peel and grate carrots to use them to form circles. Use dried dark fruit to create dark BB-8 elements.
The cake is ready! Enjoy your dessert! I and my children loved it a lot! 😋
