Birthday cakes are getting cooler and cooler, and there’s only one way to up the ante – direct current. Yes, those are actual light-up Lightsabers on that birthday cake, which was made by Flickr’r’r’r Lorenzo Wood for someone’s birthday. We’re not sure who’s birthday it was. If only we had some leads.

Speaking of leads, there are actual wires in this cake connecting the two Neopixels LED strips to the power source. They are, of course, entirely inedible, meaning that biting into the wrong bit of cake could be an, ahem, shocking experience.

Or, y’know, you can just eat around the wires and lights.

Either way, this cake is amazing, and we are richer for having it in our lives. You won’t have to Force me to eat this one! (Never, ever do this again. – Ed.)

Li Ying Khoo of Cakes by Ying is a huge fan of Wallace and Gromit. Since her husband is as well, she decided to put her skills to work creating this cake for his birthday.

The result is made from chocolate mud cake and lemon-vanilla cake with salted caramel and shows the pair engaged in the completely normal tasks of canine knitting and cheese lust.

As you’ll see in the detail pics below, it is also ridiculously intricate and looks more like a stop motion animation scene than a cake.

And now for a Valentine’s Day dessert option that looks good enough to… well, not eat.

Canadian bakesmith Yolanda Gampp has made this stunningly realistic cake that looks quite a lot like a proper human heart.

The cake is assembled from two Deep Red Velvet Cakes, and is filled with burgundy chocolate ganache. Veins of red and blue fondant lie beneath a layer of pink fondant to give it that veiny look, and then the whole thing is doused in blood. Sorry, not blood. Red food coloring mixed with raspberry jam.

At least, that’s what Gampp says. I’m not convinced it isn’t actually blood. Delicious, sugary blood.

A more detailed look at the cake is available in the image below, along with Gampp’s video showing how it was made. Y’know, if you feel like it. Personally, I’m going to go wash my hands for seven hours.

An artist named Kylie from Letterpress Bakery, is said to be Vancouver’s premier 3D cake designer. I believe it based on this amazing Simpsons / Star Wars mashup cake featuring a 3D, edible sculpture of Homer Simpson dressed as a Stormtrooper (which was inspired by the artwork of Ephin Cozmo).

Her process is detailed in the video below, and while watching it, you may catch yourself wearing the same overjoyed expression as Homer himself.

I have no doubt that many of you can make this Captain America cake complete with a flag in the middle without it being a disaster. Me, not so much.

See how it’s done after the break.

Nintendo fan Star Stone has made a collection of beautifully crafted Nintendo-themed sweet treats which look far too stunning to eat.

Stone’s treats include Super Mario Bros. cookies, a variety of Kirby treats, and that stunning Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap cake-y tart-y thing in the photo above.

For an event celebrating the launch of First Look Events at Moss Denver, Rachael of Intricate Icings created this amethyst geode cake. The entire thing is edible and in-freaking-credible, with the geode itself being crafted from a combination of granulated sugar, rock candy and multicolored modeling chocolate set within a fondant covered cake. Additional details were reportedly added with hand painting and gold leaf techniques.

See more angles in the video below.

The Salt Cake City bakery has created some magnificent R2-D2 groom’s cakes that depict a detailed droid noggin protruding from a tux complete with realistic buttons and a boutonniere.

Then again, R2-D2 is having a little trouble deciding on the outfit. Should he go traditional black tie as pictured above, or with the matching blue tie pictured below?
