If you’re a fan of Star Wars, you’re probably familiar with Baby Yoda, the adorable character from the Disney+ series “The Mandalorian.” And what better way to celebrate your love for this little Jedi than by making a Baby Yoda cake?
Making a cake can seem daunting, but fear not! With the right tools and a little bit of patience, you can create a cake that looks as cute as it is delicious. This recipe will guide you through the process step by step, so let’s get started.
1 box of cake mix (flavor of your choice)
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
1 cup of water
Green food coloring
1 can of vanilla frosting
1 tube of black decorating gel
1 tube of white decorating gel
1 package of mini chocolate chips
8-inch round cake pan
Star-shaped piping tip
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease your cake pan with cooking spray.
In a mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, vegetable oil, water, and a few drops of green food coloring. Mix the ingredients together with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, then on medium speed for 2 minutes.
Pour the batter into the greased cake pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Once the cake is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, carefully remove the cake from the pan and place it on a cooling rack to cool completely.
While the cake is cooling, prepare the frosting. Open the can of vanilla frosting and stir it until it becomes smooth. Add a few drops of green food coloring and mix it in until the frosting is evenly colored.
Once the cake has cooled, place it on a cake stand or serving plate. Using a piping bag with a star-shaped piping tip, pipe the green frosting onto the cake in a swirling pattern, starting from the outside and working your way in.
To create Baby Yoda’s eyes, use the black decorating gel to draw two large circles near the top of the cake. Then, use the white decorating gel to draw smaller circles inside the black circles for the pupils.
For Baby Yoda’s ears, take two mini chocolate chips and insert them into the sides of the cake, using toothpicks to hold them in place.
To finish off the cake, use the black decorating gel to draw a small line for Baby Yoda’s nose and a curved line for his mouth.
Voila! Your Baby Yoda cake is complete. This cake is sure to impress at any Star Wars-themed party or gathering. And, of course, it’s delicious too.

In this article, we’ll take you through the steps of making an easy Baby Yoda cake. We’ll cover the ingredients and tools you’ll need, as well as the steps to follow to create a cake that looks like the famous character.
1 box of cake mix (flavor of your choice)
1 can of frosting (flavor of your choice)
Green food coloring
Black food coloring
Measuring cups and spoons
9-inch cake pan
Cake leveler or serrated knife
Small round cookie cutter
Piping bag or zip-top bag
Step 1: Bake and Frost the Cake
The first step in making your Baby Yoda cake is to bake a cake using a box of cake mix. Follow the instructions on the box to make the cake, and bake it in a 9-inch cake pan. Once the cake is done, let it cool completely before removing it from the pan.
Next, use a cake leveler or serrated knife to level the top of the cake. Then, spread a layer of frosting over the top of the cake using an offset spatula. Place the cake in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes to allow the frosting to set.
Step 2: Color the Frosting
To make the frosting green, add several drops of green food coloring to the can of frosting and mix it in using an electric mixer. Add more food coloring as needed to achieve the desired shade of green.
Step 3: Cover the Cake in Green Frosting
Once the frosting is green, use an offset spatula to spread a thick layer of frosting over the entire cake, making sure to smooth it out as much as possible. Try to make the frosting as smooth as possible, as this will make it easier to add the fondant decorations later on.
Step 4: Make the Ears
To make Baby Yoda’s ears, roll out some brown fondant to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. Use a small round cookie cutter to cut out two circles of fondant. Then, use a toothpick to create the ridges on each of the circles to make them look like ears.
Step 5: Make the Eyes
To make Baby Yoda’s eyes, roll out some white fondant to a thickness of about 1/8 inch. Use a small round cookie cutter to cut out two circles of fondant. Then, use a toothpick to create the pupil in each of the circles.
Step 6: Make the Nose
To make Baby Yoda’s nose, roll out some black fondant to a thickness of about 1/8 inch. Use a small round cookie cutter to cut out a circle of fondant. Then, use a toothpick to create the nostrils in the circle.
Step 7: Decorate the Cake
Finally, it’s time to decorate the cake with the fondant decorations you just made. Start by placing the ears on the top of the cake, near the back. Press them gently into the frosting to make sure they stay in place.
Next, place the eyes on the cake, near the front. Again, press them gently into the frosting to make sure they stay in place.
Finally, place the nose on the cake, between the eyes. Use toothpicks to help hold it in place if needed.
Step 8: Add Detailing
To add some detail to your Baby Yoda cake, use black fondant to create the eyebrows, mouth, and wrinkles around the eyes. You can also use a piping bag or zip-top bag with a small hole cut in the corner to add some green frosting details to the ears and eyes.
Making a Baby Yoda cake is a fun and easy way to show your love for the popular character from “The Mandalorian.” With a few simple ingredients and some fondant decorations, you can create a cake that looks just like the cute and lovable character. So why not give it a try for your next party or gathering?
