Need a good landspeeder to navigate the treacherous deserts of Tatooine? Well, the X-34 is a solid choice, but I wouldn’t go with the version pictured above–mostly because it’s actually a cake.

Made by Les Gâteaux de Gilles, this particular cake features a stunning amount of detail.

If there’s one thing General Mills knows how to do, it’s get you to buy cereal. Those of us who grew up on Trix and Lucky Charms know the power of their siren song. Now they’re going after the Star Wars fans with red and blue marshmallow lightsabers.

In addition to themed marshmallows, the regular part of the cereal also comes in three shapes: a Tie Fighter, an X-Wing, or the Millennium Falcon.

Plus, they’re going after the collectors here. The cereal debuts in June and will change as new movies come out with new boxes and marshmallows. Indeed, Star Wars cereal will be a permanent part of the General Mills lineup.

See you in the cereal aisle!

Becca of Becca’s Edible Art bakery in Sacramento, California has joined forces with other baking rebels to celebrate all things Star Wars for May 4th (may the fourth be with you all!).

Becca recently created this Gamorrean Guard cake, and it’s clear that she has an eye for detail. It looks pretty tasty too. I swear if you gave me this cake I’d gobble it down like a Rancor snacking on a… well, you get the idea.

It’s always nice when we get tips on awesome new creations from Cakes Cove, and this one is extra special because it’s Star Wars-themed for a geeky May the 4th wedding.

I particularly like the Rebel and Empire logos in the flowers. Little touches like that always make me smile –– but then, I’m an unabashed fan of her work.
