Top 10 Star Wars Cakes: Let The Force (of Frosting & Fondant) Be With You
Storm Troopers Like Cake, Too
Cake is one confection that will never, ever go out of style. Witness shows like Duff Goldman's Ace of Cakes, Cake Boss, Amazing Wedding Cakes and now, Cupcake Wars, which not only engineer cakes, but make them, as Goldman says, "Bigger, badder, awesome!"
Since its original release in 1977, nothing has been bigger, badder and more awesome in pop culture than Star Wars. From Wookiepedia to sold-out Star Wars conventions to Williams-Sonoma's Star Wars cookie and pancake molds, The Force is still going strong, especially in cake form. To prove it, turn the page for our Top 10 Star Wars cakes.
This cake is, one can only hope, a replica of Boba Fett and not his father, Jango Fett. Why? His father was decapitated by Mace Windu at the end of Episode II. Would make for a much messier dessert. Unlike Boba Fett inside the Sarlacc Pit, however, this cake probably won't take over one thousand years to digest.

Chewbacca is pictured here in a pose reminiscent of the one he struck after beating R2-D2 in a game of Intergalactic chess. Look at the Wookie (also known as Princess Leia's "walking carpet"); he's so proud of himself.
This near-perfect replica of R2-D2 practically made our heads spin, just like the little droid himself. However, since this version of R2 is immaculately clean, it presumably represents a time before he crash-landed in the swamps of the Dagobah System. He's just missing his medal of honor from helping blow up the Death Star.

This cake version of Darth Vader and Storm Trooper is much more cartoonish in nature, unlike the real version who would torture you for information on the Death Star.

Watching Han Solo become frozen in time inside a carbonite coffin terrified every pre-teen who saw the Empire Strikes Back. This incredibly realistic cake replica is not only mouth-watering, but a little terrifying.
