princess chewbacca cake edit

When Sophie asked her mom Jamie for a Star Wars-themed birthday party, Jamie decided to take the cake to the next level. It’s what great geeky parents do. She notes:

My daughter wanted a Star Wars party, so I bought this Chewbacca doll hoping that I could find a bakery that would turn him into a barbie cake. Because he was a full size doll and not a kit, I was turned down several times.

That’s when Jamie’s friend Megan swooped in to save the day:

My amazing friend, Megan, came to the rescue and offered to make Chewy a beautiful cake dress. She nailed it!

disney circus cake

Remember that really amazing Disney Princess Superheroes cake we showed you the other day? Well, we’ve just discovered the other Gold Award-winning cake that Richards Cakes entered into the Cake International competition—and it involves a trip to the circus.

Imagine Dopey, Happy, and Doc as clowns, Esmerelda as the Bearded Lady, Stitch being fired out of a cannon, and lots more.

game of thrones cake

I suppose it would be tough to eat a gruesome, award winning Game Of Thrones cake, but if they don’t hurry there will be a spoiler alert worth worrying about.

This Ned Stark cake is the work of Dawn Butler, who crafted it for the International Craft and Hobby Fair where she won gold in carved cake category.

You can check out more pics of this crazy cake on Butler’s Dinkydoodle Designs.

superhero princess cake edit

People love to mash-up Disney Princesses, but this cake takes the concept two steps further.

Richard’s Cakes made this amazing Disney Princess Superhero Cake for the recent Cake International show. Not surprisingly, they brought home a Gold Award for their work.

Shape-changing Alice goes up against a smaller Queen of Hearts. Gambit Belle fights with books instead of playing cards and has already downed Drizella and Anastasia. Ariel battles Ursula. You get the idea—it’s awesome.

bb8 cake

I’m an utter disaster in the kitchen, but if anyone with skills could make this adorable BB-8 cake and send it my house, I’d be ever so grateful.

This tasty droid is made using cake, ganache, fondant, modeling chocolate, and a few other things (like a drill) which make it sound like you’re building a real droid.

Check out the tutorial after the break.

yoda cake

Claire Jensen of the Cornwall-based Peboryon Cakes was at “Cake International — The Sugarcraft, Cake Decorating & Baking Show” with an amazing entry that demonstrates Cake Yoda’s power to levitate another cake with the Cake Force.

Imagine being able to float cake into your mouth from anywhere. I want to be a Jedi so bad.

Watch it after the break, you will.

hunger games cake top

Nerdache Cakes recently whipped up this awesome Mockingjay cake, and it’s packed with tons of references to The Hunger Games series (the bloody white roses are definitely a nice touch). Here’s what baker Ant Roman had to say about the cake:

There’s lots of cool textured pieces in there like feathers, metals, bloody roses, twigs and wood grain- every trick in the book! Katniss herself is fondant with papercrafted wings and chocolate hair. There wasn’t nearly enough references to my liking for the Mockingjay Dress, so I went back to my Fashion Major days and made one for her.
