Blogger and artist Alicia Policia recently celebrated her 30th birthday by combining her love of The Empire Strikes Back with baked goods which resulted in a delicious sour cream pound cake that looks like this:
I know, yummy right?
She even had the presence of mind to include the severed arm which just goes to show you that it’s the little things that make all the difference:
Now, I know that cupcakes steal the limelight right now due to their hipness and popularity, but sometimes you have to old-skool it and make a sheet cake to really appreciate the beauty of a handcrafted sugar-high like the Wampa cake.
Sure, cupcakes are individualized treats that anyone can commit to, but it takes a hard-core butter cream lover to sit down at a table with just a fork and the desire to consume four pounds of cake in one sitting.
And that’s why this cake is sublime.
So the next time you are looking to get junior or juniorette a b-day cake, forget buying some monstrosity at the Sam’s Club, create a Wampa cake instead and watch their little eyes glisten as they cut off it’s head.
God, I miss being a kid.
