Yes, this squee-inducing Star Wars cake is just about the cutest darn thing I’ve seen since Muppet Babies was on TV (I think I’m dating myself with that reference). The You’ve Been Cupcaked Bakery crafted this fine cake, and it’s just too fracking adorable: I especially love that Yoda is Chewie’s little doll, and that Han’s blaster shoots bubbles.

lightsaber bbq fork

Grilling techniques from the galaxy far, far away are coming to Earth. We’ve already seen lightsaber BBQ tongs, and now ThinkGeek’s offering a lightsaber BBQ fork to go with them. The stainless steel design won’t let you turn hot dogs over with the Force but using a lightsaber is the second best thing, right? Right.

See a close-up of the hilt/grip after the break.

Freezie Lightsaber Hilt

Make summer snacking epic by turning popsicles into lightsabers! Dearest Debi has shared a tutorial on crocheting tiny hilts to fit on the ends of freezies (like Fla-Vor-Ice) to turn them into elegant weapons. She rates the project as easy and okay for novices, and you should be fine as long as you know how to wield a crochet hook.

Get the full how-to at Dearest Debi’s site.

These Star Wars Stacking Mugs feature three, 3.5-inch-tall porcelain mugs that, when stacked, feature an image of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo or an imposing stormtrooper. If you’re feeling like causing a little inter-galactic mayhem, you can arrange the mugs so that Luke’s wearing the stormtrooper’s helmet, Han has Luke’s boots or the stormtrooper has Han’s… er, pants? Anyway, the mugs are safe for microwave and dishwasher use too.

The first Friday of June is upon us, and that can only mean one thing: It’s National Donut Day!

It’s that one day of the year when we can eat all the donuts we want and not feel guilty about it. Bring on the inevitable sugar coma! Yay! Ok, on a serious note, if you happen to be a Star Wars fan, we came across a fun recipe for a Chewbacca-themed donut by justJENN. Sure, it doesn’t shoot a laser crossbow or co-pilot a YT-1300 light freighter, but it sure does look like a wookiee… a tasty wookiee too. So that’s good enough for me.

Jenn highlights all of the ingredients and instructions on her site, justJenn Recipes.

Happy National Donut Day, and make sure to check your local shops for deals!
