Star Wars Rebels Hera Shey's Chcocolate Italian Cake Recipe
Oh, it's "Synful!" Star Wars Rebels Hera-shey's Italian Chocolate Cake Recipe.

When I get a request to make something, my creative mind shifts into gear and develops a Star Wars and Italian spin on whatever dish I'm kicking up.

Thus, when my best friend requested chocolate cake I immediately knew it would be Hera Syndulla's from the Star Wars Rebels series.

It just so happened I had some imported Italian Buffalo Butter that was sent to me from Cheese Importers in Longmont, Colorado. I had been waiting to use it in something very "Synful," rich, and special. It's this perfect creamy butter. It's nothing like the butter I purchase that is made from cow's milk in America. Butter made from Domesticated Italian Water Buffalo is perfectly lovely in flavor and texture. It's unsalted, but so divine. Where has it been all my life???

Delita Buffalo Milk Butter and Bel Gioioso Mascarpone CheeseAnyhow, my Acquired Italianism is showing. Here is my recipe for chocolate cake. We also have a chocolate frosting recipe from The Star Wars Chef Bretto. You can use whatever type of baking cocoa you desire in the cake. In the US, it's common to find Hershey's Chocolate brand and works for my word play for Hera-shey's Chocolate Cake!

Don't forget the free printable party food label to make eating this cake feel like a Star Wars Holiday!

Star Wars Hera-shey's Chocolate Frosting Recipe
A delicious, rich, mascarpone and chocolate frosting. Perfect for your Star Wars crew!
Ingredients
  • 8 oz Chocolate, melted (Hersheys milk or dark)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup butter, salted
  • 8 oz Mascarpone Cheese (or cream cheese)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups confectioner's sugar
  • extra milk or heavy cream
Instructions
1. Cream together softened butter and mascarpone cheese. Add melted chocolate, cocoa, and vanilla extract. Mix well. 2. Mix in 4 cups of confectioner's sugar (powdered sugar) and slowly add either milk or heavy cream until your frosting is the consistency you desire for spreading. 3. Frost a cooled 3 layer cake between layers and outside. Take additional chocolate bar and using a peeler, make some chocolate curls/shreds for cake decor. On this cake I took a toothpick and drew lines around it to give it the look of one of the Pillars of Lothal, the place Star Wars Rebels started and will possibly end.
