The ball droid, aka BB-8, was an immediate hit when it debuted in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer a few months back. All sorts of fan tributes popped up, and now he’s even in cake form thanks to UK bakery CakeRush.

In an interesting coincidence, the bakery is located in Hertforshire which is the home of Elstree Studios which George Lucas used during the original trilogy. It’s also the home of Leavesden Studios which produced Harry Potter.

Owners Angela and Mike got started many years ago when Mike made cakes for his nephews and nieces. Once the pair was married they began working on cakes together and have had a website since 2012. They created the BB-8 cake by putting several different cakes together and carefully covering them with sugar paste and ganache to make it look like one round cake.

It can be difficult to decide on a theme for your birthday cake, especially if you love science fiction. Apparently Neal decided to have Regali Kitchen combine all the sci-fi in one, glorious cake. There’s the Millennium Falcon and Death Star from Star Wars along with the Enterprise and a Klingon Bird of Prey from Star Trek.

Firefly‘s Serenity is also there with a transport ship, as is the TARDIS from Doctor Who and a Dalek ship. There are even lighted effects to the ships’ engines or, in the case of the TARDIS, that little light on the roof.

Star-Wars-Wampa-Cake

This wampa cake is the work of Yummy Crumble (where you can find the complete recipe) and it’s more than a little terrifying.

Trying to eat it might be risky. Maaaaybe I’ll just put it in the freezer with a Luke figure to keep it happy. Giving his arm back might be a good idea as well.

This snake cake was made by redditor Dookalighnmike‘s uncle for his cousin’s birthday. It took him six hours to make the masterpiece which looks just like a coral snake. Coral snake venom is poisonous, and if you have a peanut allergy the same is true for this cake.

Instructables member Vanweb was feeling a bit bored on New Years day, so the baking connoisseur/Guardians fan decided to mix things up by making a Groot Yule Log using some boxed cake mix and plenty of chocolate. The end result came out great, and I think using pistachios for the “moss” was a nice touch. What do you think? Honestly, Groot has never looked so tasty.

batcave cake 1

I’ve seen several cakes featuring Batman or the Bat symbol but never a cake that looks just like the retro Batcave. I can cross that off my list though thanks to Mike’s Amazing Cakes. The talented baker designed the edible Batcave around the client’s diecast Batmobile. Mike doesn’t state which parts are fake and which are edible, so I’m going to pretend/hope everything except the Batmobile is sugar-based. Yum.

This Dancing Baby Groot cake is the work of Cinnamon Square and it’s the best baby Groot cake we’ve seen thus far. He was hand-sculpted from chocolate and then painted to match Groot perfectly. The base is a cake flower pot and it all looks adorable and delicious.

gollum cake 1

Sometimes I forget that Gollum can be a scary creature, but this realistic cake by Sweet Little Treat has refreshed my memory. Baker Karin spent about 30 hours working on the confection and did a top notch job capturing every detail in Gollum’s sneer. I’m particularly impressed by his teeth. It’s uncanny!

Karen made Gollum’s head for the Cakes from Middle-earth collaboration and used modeling chocolate, fondant, and edible paints to craft the cake. Those single strands of wispy hair? They’re made from sugar.

Check out more photos of the Gollum cake after the break, precious.
