Amazing Star Wars Birthday Cakes


JJ has written about awesome cakes and fun children's parties for many years. She served as Kids and Teens Parties Editor for Suite 101.


Incredible Cake Decorating Showcase

These amazing Star Wars cakes are a must-see! Most of the cakes pictured are one-of-a-kind custom-ordered or otherwise handcrafted desserts. You'll hardly believe these creations are actually baked, frosted and ready to eat.

Do you love the Disney/Lucas movies? Are you having or planning a birthday party? Whatever brings you here, enjoy viewing the work of some truly excellent cake and cupcake artists and bakeries. I thank them all for giving me the permission to share these wonders with you.

Creative (and/or daring!) folks may enjoy the challenge of copying a design they see here or using these ideas as a jumping-off point. Another idea is to show a professional cake decorator the photos and see what they think. Perhaps you can find a bakery or cake decorating friend who can create the fabulous cake of your dreams!

Amazing YODA Cake! - NEW!

There Is No Try

This fantastic Yoda creation is truly a work of art. The details in the face and hands and the fabulous draping of his Jedi robe are stunning.

While searching for a cake of this character, I saw some pretty sad and funny tries at capturing Yoda's unique face and personality. Do your own search online and you'll get a good laugh. In this case, there are lots of "tries."

Truly outstanding workmanship on this large creation. The detail is incredible. This is up there on the list of the most incredible cakes ever made, in my opinion. Good job, EBCakes, for this fantastic work!

Both the Millennium Falcon Star Ship Cake and the death star look amazing on the details then again so is the AT-AT Cake with the little Ewok Cupcakes. I also really like the Vader candle holders it's a great idea.

Jess Martell on January 20, 2014:

@TanoCalvenoa: I'm not sure though that I could pass up an opportunity to take a bite out of Darth Vader's head.

maceemiller123 on August 18, 2013:

I've had a great thought.....a life size Jabba The Hutt cake.....I'll have 2 please :)

TanoCalvenoa on June 26, 2013:
