A Slice of the Dark Side

Frances Chareunsouk, who makes treats for Meebah Desserts in Rowland Heights, California, baked a Darth Vader-themed cake for a 6-year-old birthday boy named Magnus, which probably made everyone at the party want to turn to the Dark Side. Here’s how to stage your own Star Wars birthday party.

(We’re already on the Dark Side—and by that we mean hello, dark chocolate.)

Mmm… Lightsabers!

Star Wars food isn’t limited to dessert! Talented home baker Leonora Vazquez, who Instagrams as @sugarcoatthat, made these colorful lightsabers out of pretzels (they’re candy-coated) for a Star Wars-themed birthday party.

It’s such a clever idea—and you might be able to copycat this in your kitchen, too. Start by making your own chocolate-dipped pretzels.

Darth Vader Is…Sweet?

Jessica Bailey is an Oregon mom who had a “blast designing the Darth Vader cake for a friend’s husband. It had a little bit of everything, between the fondant work, airbrushing, chocolate modeling and buttercream waterfall of cookies!”

Here’s a great primer on how to decorate a cake—including how to pipe buttercream.

Star Wars S’mores Pops

This is another Star Wars treat you can whip up at home. “We thought it would be fun to make Star Wars characters out of s’mores and we had so much fun making these!” wrote Jill Mills, the food blogger behind Kitchen Fun with My Three Sons.

R2D2 Macarons

“I live with three Star Wars-obsessed boys in Brisbane, Australia,” said baker Katie Tomkins. Her R2D2 macarons “were French vanilla flavour with royal icing-piped features.”

Did you know macarons are different from macaroons? The first is meringue-based; the second is coconut-based. Either way—delicious.

Cake designer Bia Bazerra of Sao Paolo considers this R2D2 cake one of her favorite pieces of all time. It took her four whole days!

(Don’t have that kind of time on your hands? We hear you. Just go with the best box mix.)

“Awesome” Kylo Ren Cake

Jessica Bailey said her Kylo Ren creation proved to be a challenge because she wanted to create his helmet to scale. “It was for a 10-year-old’s birthday,” she said, “and he was a Star Wars enthusiast who found it ‘awesome!'”

Happily Ever After

Here’s a cake that one loving wife requested for her hubby as a 10th anniversary present. He’s crazy about Star Wars, and obviously, his wife’s crazy about him!

We’re just crazy about the idea of food gifts.

Wookiee Cookies

“The Wookiee Cookies were essential…99% due to the cute rhyming name,” baker Katie Tomkins said. She’s being humble, we think. These cookies are fantastic!

To help you pull off the Chewbacca artistry here, we suggest starting with a gingerbread cutout. Then decorate each Chewie cookie with our sweet buttercream frosting.

Stormtrooper Cake

Stormtroopers are elite shock troops who are impossible to sway from the Imperial cause. Frances Chareunsouk made this cake for a young “aspiring Stormtrooper,” and you might say he was impossible to sway from enjoying it with friends at a birthday party!
