Jabba the Cake

Bonnie Burton | April 27, 2009

Star Wars fan Marty sent photos of this awesome Jabba the Hutt cake to Great White Snark for its Geeky Cake of the Week:

My four year old is reallly into Star Wars now and Jabba is his favorite character (which is a bit weird to me). After I promised him a “Jabba cake” (with no real plan on how to get one) I turned to every geek’s best friend, the Internet. I found a fairly simple recipe for fondant and my wife made it. I mixed in food coloring to make the various pieces.

My favorite part was Jabba’s slime. I used green food coloring mixed in Karo syrup, then applied it generously. For the eyes I took two Whoppers candies, applied them in the hallowed out sockets then applied fondant eyelids to make the eyes more squinty (at one point it looked like Jabba had a thyroid disorder).

Clone Trooper Latte?

Check out this billboard for McDonald’s new specialty coffee drinks, which include the McCafe Latte. Maybe we just have Star Wars on the brain too much, but we can’t be the only ones who see a clone trooper helmet in the foam, can we?

I’m lovin’ it!

Yummy Yoda Cupcakes

Bonnie Burton | April 13, 2009

Check out these cute and tasty Yoda cupcakes made by crafty LJ fan braeby:

Here are some Yoda cupcakes that I made for my friends a couple of weeks ago. They’re chocolate with vanilla icing, with green food coloring. The ears I made out of chocolate mint wafers cut in half and stuck them in as far as I could before icing them. Delicious, they were hmmm…

Obi-Wan Kenobi Cake

Bonnie Burton | February 26, 2009

Check out this delicious Obi-Wan Kenobi atop this fondant-covered Star Wars cake of vanilla sponge, vanilla buttercream, and strawberry jam made by Natasha.

The cake was for a little boy called Harry, for his 6th birthday. He is a massive Star Wars fan. I get nervous doing cakes like these because I know how geeky boys and men can get. I did a Yoda cake first and my husbands comment was “If he held his lightsaber like that it would cut off his hands!” But Harry was delighted.

He’s No Guac to Me Dead

Pete Vilmur | February 4, 2009

guacsolo.jpg reports the winners of Guac Bowl 2009 today, an annual event that attracts entries from guacamole aficionadoes. While “He’s No Guac to Me Dead” didn’t take this year’s Best Presentation Trophy (that went to an entry titled “Ms. Guac Man”), we think Rob Saccenti’s Han-in-carbonite creation is definitely double-dip-worthy.

From the story:

Saccenti once again wowed spectators with “He’s No Guac to Me Dead,” a life-size replica of Han Solo encased in carbonite and guacamole, but the only trophy his Guac Solo came close to winning was the Icarus Award.

Check out the full story and other winning entries here.

Vader Cake: It’s a Girl!

Bonnie Burton | February 2, 2009

Darth Vader may have been the worst dad in the galaxy, but that doesn’t mean he’s above helping you celebrate the birth of your baby daughter.

One Star Wars fan decided to add a little Sith sentiment to this delightful (or scary) baby shower cake. Impressive use of non-canon planets and festive sprinkles!

Star Wars Mini-Golf Cake

Bonnie Burton | January 21, 2009

Why make a typical birthday cake when you can make a Star Wars miniature golf cake? According to cake artisan Kellye:

It may surprise you to hear that the cake was actually a birthday cake for a pretty cool 4-year-old little girl. She’s really into Star Wars. The cake itself is strawberry per her request. The grass and stream are buttercream and the walkway and putting greens are fondant. Everything else is inedible. The golf clubs are toothpicks or kabob sticks (depending on the character’s hand size) with a little carved piece of marshmallow on the end.

Yummy Yoda Cake, Bake You Must

Bonnie Burton | December 10, 2008

It’s amazing what you can make with Rice Krispies treats, chocolate and fondant. Debbie Goard of San Francisco’s Debbie Does Cakes made this magnificent Yoda cake with those ingredients and more.

Yoda’s head was made from rice krispies treats, modelling chocolate and fondant. I made the head a few days in advance. Just doesn’t feel right if I don’t have a disemboweled head staring at me throughout the week, lol! The body was made up of Rich strawberry cake with a Bavarian custard filling. The body was then covered in fondant and airbrushed.

Dark Side of the Vader Toast Team | November 6, 2008

If there’s something every Sith Lord knows how to do it’s make a balanced breakfast. While the Jedi have to live off of Jawa juice and fried nerfsteak, the Dark Lord of the Sith prefers to have a reminder of his fiery Mustafar defeat at his breakfast table. Every morning he burns that moment into a slice of bread with the Darth Vader Toaster. This black, ominous kitchen appliance easily leaves the mark of Vader’s helmet in every yummy piece of toast. Force power not required to operate toaster.


  • White bread
  • Nutella

Going to the dark side never tasted better thanks to the hazelnut spread Nutella.
Toast your bread slice and slather on the Sithy darkness.
