Have you been eating something other than cereal lately? If so, you’ve been missing out on all of the Star Wars goodies cereal has to offer.

Select General Mills cereals have been shipping with glow-in-the-dark Star Wars decals inside, and we have a look at most of them thanks to the “breakfast in bed kit” they so generously sent us.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t contain the coveted Millennium Falcon decal which, apparently, can only be found in random boxes of Reese’s Puffs “at select retailers within the Kroger family of stores”. Still—pretty awesome.

Take a look at the collection below.

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 saw a picture of someone having their cereal in one of these and it was pretty dang adorable. Take a closer look in the pics below.

Let’s be honest, the Death Star is silly—and ridiculously expensive.

Fortunately, we’ve found a more practical and economical use for the destructive power of this complete and operational battle station – a grill! That’s right, you can now cook your favorite meats on a barbecue shaped just like the Death Star. Whether you’re in the mood for some pork sausages or Ewok steak, this grill has you covered.

Check out some more products shots 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?

The Star Wars universe can be a rough place. It’s good to have some friends on your side. And by “friends” I mean cute cookies. Cute cookies make everything better.

In addition to the original series featuring Luke, Leia, Yoda, Chewie, C-3PO, and R2-D2, there are two cookie cutter packs available in the Star Wars Rebel Friends series: one that’s Hoth-themed and another that’s Endor-themed. See the latter below.

One of the things in Star Wars: The Force Awakens that has captured fans’ attention is Rey’s instant bread. The first time I saw it, I figured it was a CGI effect, but on following viewings, I really wasn’t sure because it looked so real.

Turns out, it was.

MTV’s Victoria McNally sat down with SW:TFA special effects supervisor Chris Corbould who revealed that the effect was not only 100% practical, but it took roughly three months to perfect because of all the testing involved.

“You wouldn’t believe how long it took to actually perfect that one, that little tiny gag in the film,” Corbould said. “It started off with the mechanics of getting the bread to rise and the liquid to disappear, but then there was the ongoing problem of what color should the bread be? What consistency should it be? Should it have cracks in it? Should it not have cracks in it?”

“It took about three months,” he added. “The actual mechanics of it was fairly simple, but the actual cosmetic side took a lot longer.”

Sadly, it’s not actually edible. If you want to know the secret, DP/30 got the details during a chat with Corbould and Neal Scanlan that you can watch below.

We’ve featured the nerdy mixer decal kits of GoodMommyLtd in the past, but she’s finally added a BB-8 set.

Clearly, if you didn’t buy a white Kitchen Aid stand mixer you’ve thrown your money down the toilet.
