Star Wars Cake

My DS has his birthday next week and we're having two parties. A 'birthday tea' on the day for family (will probably be more a 'casual meal' as it'll be 16 people) and that needs to have meat, dairy and wheatfree options (all together). Then the birthday party (and party tea for DS and 3 friends) is the day after. I'd like to make a Star Wars cake for one or the other but am lacking inspiration as to how to decorate it (and don't want to buy a 'cake topper').

Any ideas?!

Use Star Wars lego? Or is that cheating?

I've made a cake in the form of a light sabre before. That was easy...
I made a huge swiss roll and the covered one end in blue icing and the other end in silver/grey, then add the details with writing icing.

Lightsabre could work!

I'm also doing a train cake though that uses swiss rolls (bought).

How easy is it to make your own?!

really easy, cos it doesn't have to be perfect grin
You make the sponge in a swiss roll tin, but a shallow roasting dish would do, roll it up and off you go.
