Millennium Falcon Wedding Cake

This terrific Millennium Falcon Wedding Cake was made by the amazing Debbie Goard from Debbie Does Cakes.  The detail on the Millennium Falcon is wonderful.  This is one wedding cake that I’d feel guilty serving.  I really like how the Millennium Falcon looks like it is just coming out of hyperspace because all the stars are still distorted.  The blue lights on the front of the Falcon add to the effect. 

If you haven’t been able to tell from my 350+ Star Wars posts, I am a massive Star Wars fan.  I am hooked on the movie, books, and comics.  I am extremely excited about The Force Awakens.  For the 2nd time in my life, I’m thrilled that there are more Star Wars movies.

When the Return of The Jedi came out, there was talk that there would be two other Star Wars trilogies.  One set before New Hope and another set after Return of the Jedi.  People weren’t sad when Return of the Jedi ended because everyone assumed that there would be six more movies.  A few years after Return of the Jedi, it began to look like these three movie were the only Star Wars movies we’d ever get.  So I was thrilled 16 years later when The Phantom Menace came out.  To this day, I still enjoy The Phantom Menace.

Even though it is the darkest of the Star Wars movies, I really like the Revenge of the Sith.  But, it was bittersweet seeing it because everyone thought it would be the final Star Wars movie.

It’s been a decade and Star Wars is back!!! It is introducing new characters who I can’t wait to meet and bring back old favorites like Han Solo, Luke, Leia, Chewie, and the Falcon.

To quote the old TV show theme song:

Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.

The Millennium Falcon Flies Over Mos Eisley On This Birthday Cake

Millennium Falcon Cake

This Marvelous Millennium Falcon Birthday Cake was made by Cat Cakes. The Cake represents Mos Eisley.  It is only fitting that the Millennium Falcon appear with Mos Eisley. I remember when fans first saw Han Solo and Chewbacca in the Mos Eisley cantina and then saw the Millennium Falcon for the first time in the Mos Eisley space port.  Star Wars: A New Hope was the beginning of a great series of science fiction movies.

Everything on this Star Wars birthday cake is edible. The Millennium Falcon was made with Rick Krispies Treats and covered in fondant. The detail took two days to complete.

I can’t wait for Han Solo to fly the Millennium Falcon once more in the movie The Force Awakens. I have enjoyed watching all of the Star Wars movies, especially the ones with Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon. I have also enjoyed listening to audio books where Han Solo and Chewbacca go on adventures in the Millennium Falcon.

Awesome Millennium Falcon Cake

Millennium Falcon Cake

This Awesome Millennium Falcon Cake was made by Cup A Dee Cakes. This Star Wars cake is one of the most detailed Millennium Falcon edible replicas that I have seen. All of the panels, access hatches, and other equipment are shaded and colored to give wonderful detail to the ship.

In the front of the ship are the forward mandibles, the forward floodlight, and the quad laser cannon. On the front to the side is the cockpit.  Escape pods are on the side of the ship. On top of the ship is the equipment access bay, the deflector shield projector, and the sensor dish. The drive units are at the rear of the ship and are colored blue.

The cake board is black to represent outer space. The Birthday name and age are in yellow letters on the cake board.

This Splendid LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon Birthday Cake was made by annimemanga.  She made this cake for her nephew’s birthday.  The cake has panels of fondant on the top that look like thin lego bricks. The blocks are light gray with darker gray circles for different circular dishes on the outer hull of the ship. The cake has a stand so that it looks like it is flying. The cake board is covered in black glittery paper to make it look like outer space with stars. There is a placard in Star Wars font that wishes a Happy 7th Birthday to Max, the birthday boy.
