We have another Yummy Star Wars double shot for you this morning which continues the cake theme from earlier this week.
Our friend Karen at Between the Pages blog features a virtual celebration of Star Wars inspired cupcakes. Some of which you may have seen before, others maybe not. Either way, they've all managed to make me hungry for an unhealthy lunch. (Thanks Karen!)
In addition, the Official SW.com Blog points us over to Bsideblog.com where you can see the step-by-step creation of an amazingly detailed R2 cake. Check out the intro below but then make sure to click here for the full read with images.
"Back in February, I introduced you to possibly the best R2-D2 cake ever, created by my friend and professional baker, Mark Randazzo, who just started up a new bakery, Mark Joseph Cakes. Turns out I wasn’t the only one amazed by this creation. The post drew the attention of BoingBoing, Gizmodo, Elite Choice, and many others. While I loved the traffic, I was even happier that Mark and his wife Leslie, who both run the bakery, got so much exposure. I told them that the next time they make an R2-D2 cake, they have to take more pictures for me to post about. Well, thanks to the Internet buzz, it wasn’t long before someone came calling. Mark once again whipped up an extraordinary R2-D2 cake, which had to have blown away the four year old birthday boy who received it. Even better, judging by the photos, it appears as though R2 is really one giant red velvet cake with RICE KRISPY TREAT LEGS. I want one. Now. Whether you’re a Star Wars enthusiast or simply a lover of cake, you have to see this."
