This terrific Stormtrooper Cake, made by Alogratera, was awarded 2nd place.
This cake was made by stacking a 12″ round sponge cake on the bottom and three 10″ round sponge cakes on top. The cake was then carved to look like a stormtrooper.
This wonderful R2-D2 Cake was awarded 1st place. Everyone’s favorite Astromech Droid was made by The Cake Cupboard.
