Unlike the Hunger Games, Star Wars doesn’t really focus a lot on food since it’s not as important as other pressing matters like destroying Death Stars, the Force, or what not. Of course, Luke Skywalker grew up as a farm boy on a water farm. Granted it was a desert planet called Tatooine and water is still essential for growing food, but still. However, Luke Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi meet Han Solo and Chewbacca at Mos Eisley’s Cantina which is sort of the Star Wars equivalent of a dive. Actually it’s more like those nightclubs you see in film noir movies where there’s music, everyone talks to each other, there are incidences of violence, and it’s filled with dritbags and crooks. Kind of like Rick’s Cafe Americain in Casablanca if you want to think of it but that place also had dancing, gambling, refugees, and Nazis. But still, the Panem Capitol would basically make the Mos Eisley Cantina look like a wholesome family restaurant. Yes, sentient beings get killed there but when it comes to a place where they force teenagers to kill each other on live television for entertainment, there’s no comparison. But at the Cantina, the four make a deal over providing transportation for Luke, Obi Wan, R2-D2, and C-3PO to Alderaan (which they’ll never get to). It’s also where Han Solo shoots Greedo and meets Jabba the Hutt (well, in the Special Edition VHS, anyway). Nevertheless, we know that Star Wars has a legion of fans all over the world and it’s not unusual for them to hold Star Wars themed parties for their kids. Sometimes they even old Star Wars weddings for themselves. Either way, it’s not unusual for them to have Star Wars fare, especially cakes. In this post, I’ll cover all the kinds of Star Wars treats and goodies fans have created. Some of them might be ingenious culinary creations. Some might be cute and adorable. And some might make your head scratch. So for your reading pleasure, this Nerdvember, here are some Star Wars delights inspired by the events in a galaxy far, far away.
- Nothing makes a Star Wars fan go gaga than a cake of a little Chewie spilling milk.
Now I think this was for a small child’s birthday party. Still, it’s so adorable isn’t it?
2. Eat like a Jedi master with a Yoda ice cream dessert.
Now I think this might be an ice cream sundae with Yoda’s head on a green ice cream scoop. Still, it’s quite clever.
3. If you liked The Empire Strikes Back, then you’ll love this Wampa cake.
I’m sure this is the kind of cake suitable for anyone freezing on Hoth. However, its major downside is that it’s covered in coconut.
4. Be the ultimate galactic host with these Star Wars cake pops.
Even comes with a Rice Krispie Death Star. Still, this display includes descriptions on which character each cake pop is supposed to be.
5. Grace your table this Christmas with this gingerbread AT-AT.
I know this isn’t meant for eating. But you have to like how this Imperial walking tank is wreaking havoc among the candy canes. It’s pretty funny.
6. To make TIE fighters, all you need are graham crackers, marshmallows, and peanut butter.
Now whoever thought of this is a genius. Didn’t know that Imperial fighters were so easy to make in the kitchen.
7. It’s not a Star Wars party until you have some Wookie cookies.
Now there are plenty of wookie cookies in all shapes and sizes. But I like this one because it doesn’t use icing for fur.
8. Nothing says true love than seeing two Stormtroopers on top of a Death Star.
Because nothing celebrates true love than sitting together on top of a space station that blew up a planet. Then again, these are Imperial Stormtroopers, but still.
9. For healthier options, you can always make lightsabers from grapes.
All these require are just grapes on a skewer with some foil on the bottom. But they only come in two colors.
10. Nothing makes your Star Wars party a hit than an Imperial Stormtrooper cheese ball.
Now that doesn’t look quite like a Stormtrooper. But I’ll give this person an A for effort since it’s pretty creative.
11. If you don’t like Imperial smores, then you can always go with cheese.
Now these cheddar Imperial fighters might make great appetizers. And they’re fairly easy to make, too.
12. Nothing makes you the ultimate Star Wars party host than cookies like these.
Now these cookies look professionally made. Yet, the consist of Yoda, an X-Wing, Padme Amidala, Darth Maul, Boba Fett, lightsaber duel at Cloud City, and Princess Leia.
13. If you love candy, then these Star Wars chocolates will do nicely.
Now these consist of Darth Vader, the Millennium Falcon, a Stormtrooper, and Han Solo in carbonite. You might have to buy the molds, but these look awesome.
14. Relive the events of the original trilogy with a cake of Han, Luke, Leia, and Chewie trying to get out of the Death Star’s garbage disposal.
Now I have to admit, this is a very creative cake. Love the use of chocolate graham crackers. Also like how Leia and Han are trying to stop the walls narrowing by using a pretzel stick.
15. Wake up this morning for a Kessel run with a Chewbacca donut.
I’m sure any cop Star Wars fan would appreciate something like this. Well, stereotypically speaking, that is.
16. Nothing shows the power of the Dark Side than a cake of Darth Vader rising from the flames.
I have to admit, this is a very awesome cake. However, it also reminds me of why Darth Vader is on life support in the first place. Cue to Episode III.
17. If you love C-3PO and R2-D2, then this bento lunch is for you.
Now this has C-3PO in peppers while R2-D2 is a hardboiled egg. Still, it’s really a work in food art if I say so myself.
18. Nothing makes an Imperial Galactic Empire party better than these Stormtrooper cupcakes.
Now these cupcakes look very easy to decorate. Just put white icing and a marshmallow decorated like a Stormtrooper helmet.
19. If you loved Star Wars, then your party will certainly rock with this Han Solo in carbonite cake.
C’mon, with all the Han Solo in carbonite products out there, you knew this was coming. This is especially since there’s a Han Solo in carbonite chocolate mold.
20. If you have young children, an Ewok village makes a great birthday cake.
However, I think this person made an Ewok village cake for themselves due to being a repressed art major. It even includes a Death Star. But you have to like this, though.
21. Make your Star Wars party worthwhile with these Han Solo in carbonite cookies.
Of course, this might require using a chocolate Han Solo in carbonite. But I’m sure you can get the molds off Amazon.
22. Celebrate the holiday season in the galaxy with this Millennium Falcon cake.
Love how Han and Chewie decorated the ship for Christmas. Also like seeing Han on that candy sleigh. Brilliant.
23. Nothing says Christmas like Rudolph the Red-Nosed AT-AT.
Yes, I know that AT-AT is decorated like a reindeer. Yes, I know it’s ridiculous. But still, it’s funny.
24. Grace your galactic salad bowl with this watermelon Death Star.
Not sure if it’s partial or a complete. Either way, it’s pretty ingenious.
25. For all bounty hunters in the galaxy, feast yourselves on this Boba Fett pizza.
Now this seems to have peppers, pesto, tomato sauce and cheese. If you order it, it’s said that the delivery boy gives it to you from a jetpack. Okay, I was just kidding on that one.
26. If you like Wampa cake, then you might want to try these cupcakes from Hoth.
Of course, they also use coconut which I hate. But they also come in 2 different sizes.
27. For appetizers, these Imperial fighter hot dog rolls will do quite nicely.
Now these are pretty clever. But as far as health content goes, it probably falls on the Dark Side.
28. You can’t have a Star Wars party in this part of the galaxy without these cupcakes.
Now I don’t think this selection includes Han Solo, even when he’s frozen in carbonite. But it does include Greedo whom he shout first.
29. Nothing makes a Star Wars party better than a sarlacc bundt cake.
You know the pit monster that devoured Boba Fett and nearly ate Lando in Return of the Jedi? Well, there’s a cake for that.
30. Put your appetizer platter on the Dark Side with this Death Star cheese ball.
Now that’s a pretty good Death Star. And I see they included X-Wings and Imperial fighters, too.
31. For your Wookie lunch, this Chewie bento is just what the doctor ordered.
Didn’t know they could make noodles to look like Chewie over rice. Still, it’s quite creative if you think about it.
32. Feast on your wookie appetite with this Chewbacca burger.
Sure it might not have a lot of toppings. But this double decker is way healthier than whatever you get at McDonald’s.
33. For your Jedi salad, carrot lightsabers make a nice addition.
Yeah, stick some carrot slices into cucumbers. That might work. Nothing like a lightsaber salad fight if there was one.
34. If you’re not in the mood for Wookie cookies, may I suggest Wookie gobs?
As you can see, these are gobs. They’re sandwiches that are a mix between a cupcake and a cookie. But are neither.
35. Feed your path to the Dark Side with this Darth Vader pizza.
Most of Darth Vader’s face is covered with mushrooms and black olives. Thus, mushrooms and olives are evil.
36. Harness the power of the Empire with these Death Star cupcakes.
It’s a wonder that Death Stars require a lot of resources they the Empire could only build two of them. Imagine if there were as many Death Stars as these cupcakes.
37. For your Wookiee berry snack, help yourself to this basket.
Now this has some banana Imperial fighters as well as Chewie in peanut butter and Nuttella over blackberries. And it’s quite realistic, too.
38. For your Star Wars party, it is the Yoda pizza you seek.
Toppings of green bell peppers, broccoli, mushrooms, and olives it has. So healthy for a Jedi master, it is.
39. Start your galactic day with this pancake AT-AT.
Wonder how they got the pancakes to stick up like that. Does maple syrup work like glue?
40. For your Jedi veggie tray, celery and mini carrot lightsabers should be sufficient.
All you need is to cover one tip of celery and carrots with aluminum foil and you’re all set. Talk about having sword fights on a veggie tray.
41. Sure you’ve heard of Darth Maul from Episode I. But how about some hummus in his likeness?
Actually that kind of looks like Darth Maul’s face in tomato soup. But since this is clearly being used as a dip, I’ll let it slide.
42. Who knew that pretzel sticks make great lightsabers?
Now these Jedi lightsabers are covered in icing and are in two colors. But they sure look cool.
43. For your breakfast on Endor, wake up to some Ewok cereal.
Or more like a cereal bowl made to look like an Ewok. Then again, I think it just looks like a demented squirrel on LSD.
44. Speaking of Ewoks, perhaps munch on these cookies.
Now these are simply adorable even armed with spears. Of course, these are store bought cookies covered in icing.
45. For your lunch on Tatooine, you can’t go wrong with these Jawa burgers.
Yes, these burgers are supposed to resemble the droid robbing aliens of Tatooine. Still, I have to admit they’re pretty adorable and didn’t deserve to be killed by Stormtroopers.
46. Take your Imperial meal to the Dark Side with this bento lunch.
Now this includes a Darth Vader and Stormtrooper sandwich. Of course, I wouldn’t recommend it to people who have to aim for targets. They won’t hit anything.
47. May the Force be with you in this Star Wars lunch.
Now this includes a Princess Leia sandwich with a Death Star orange. Still, I like how they used Oreos for Leia’s hair.
48. If you love candy or Endor, then you’ll certainly love these chocolate Ewoks.
Yes, they look like teddy bear chocolates with hoods on them. But you have to admit they’re so adorable.
49. If you prefer to fight for the Rebel Alliance, then chow down on these Princess Leia cupcakes.
And they even have Oreo cookies on the sides for Leia’s distinctive sticky bun hairstyle. Luckily, she wears it for one movie.
50. If you loved R2-D2, then you’ll certainly love a droid cake like this.
Now this is an adorable cake. But it was probably done by either a professional or someone with too much time on their hands.
51. For all you R2-D2 cheese lovers out there, I’m sure this will strike your fancy.
Never before has R2-D2 ever looked so cheesy. And I mean that in a literal context.
52. For an easy recipe, you might want to go with Han Solo in carbonite jello.
Okay, this looks less like Han Solo frozen in carbonite, than of Han Solo being found dead in the pool. Then again, they don’t make gray jello so blue will have to do.
53. Feel the power of the Force in these Star Wars cookies.
Now these were probably professionally made. But they do contain an assortment of familiar characters that we all know and love.
54. Nothing makes a Star Wars party worthwhile than a Death Star cake.
Of course, if you wish upon a star, it better not be the Death Star since it’s a space station. And it’s known to blow up a planet.
55. Those who love the desert planet Tatooine will certainly crave whatever’s in this Jawa bento.
As you can see, the two suns are tomatoes. The Jawa is of roast beef and black beans. And the sand consists of refried beans and bread.
56. Of course, this bento makes for a complete Imperial Empire lunch.
Now this consists of an Imperial Stormtrooper cheese, an apple Death Star, and a background of black beans. Of course, you won’t hit anything with this lunch.
57. For you Wookiee appetite, feast upon these Chewie chocolate chip cookies.
Now these are nice looking cookies. Still, Chewie does look like a teddy bear who’s capable of ripping your arm out of your socket.
58. Feel the power of the Dark Side on your appetizer platter with this Darth Vader meat dip ball.
I find the abundance of heart attack risk in this dip ball disturbing. Okay, don’t tell Darth Vader I said this. Don’t want to be choked.
59. For those in the mood for a more foreign cuisine, these Ewok sushi will do nicely.
Now these are certainly cute little rice balls. Of course, they have pretzels as spears and lettuce as foliage.
60. Nothing makes a great Star Wars dessert than these galactic macaroons.
Consists of R2-D2, Death Star, and Chewbacca. Nevertheless, the R2-D2 ones are adorable.
61. May the Force be with you with these Star Wars mini cookies.
Now these consist of many of the characters from the movies as well as lightsabers. Still, they’re quite cute if you ask me.
62. For those who like The Empire Strikes Back, may I present this Wampa severed arm cake.
I don’t know about you but this is kind of disturbing if you ask me. Seriously, this is a severed arm on a platter.
63. Grace your table with this AT-AT sushi.
Well, it’s a sushi garnish. But still, it looks like it was created by a repressed art major who happens to be a major Star Wars geek.
64. You’ve seen Han Solon in carbonite. How about Han Solo in guacamole?
Now I wouldn’t suggest anyone do this. However, this is so funny that I had to put it in.
65. Greet your baby girl with this special Darth Vader cake.
Yeah, nothing makes a touching moment than Mr. I-Blew-Up-My-Daughter’s-Planet-and-Froze-Her-Boyfriend-in-Carbonite holding a little baby girl in his arms. But then again, that’s just me.
66. Nothing makes a great Star Wars dinner than a Tauntaun bun and pasta guts.
Now this looks tasty. However, it reminds me of a scene where Han Solo put Luke Skywalker in one of these so he wouldn’t freeze to death on Hoth. Gross.
67. If you liked the Empire Strikes Back, then you’ll love this cake of Luke Skywalker in the Wampa’s cave on Hoth.
Now this is when Luke is stuck on the cave ceiling and right before he cuts the Wampa’s arm off. Still, this is pretty hilarious and clever.
68. Those who liked Return of the Jedi will like this Endor Stormtrooper sushi garnish.
Just wait until he gets toppled and killed by a bunch of Ewoks. Yeah, pretty embarrassing to be killed by a bunch of tribal teddy bears with spears.
69. Star your day as a Jedi master with these Yoda pancakes.
Part of complete breakfast it is. Comes with berries it does. Need pancake cutters for these, you may.
70. For more nutritious options, try this Yoda watermelon.
Yoda melon it is. Green with attributes it has. Almost exact likeness, it might have.
71. Use the Force and serve this lightsaber cake at your Star Wars party.
Now that’s about as big as a lightsaber. Yet, it’s not transparent. However, it’s still cool.
72. If you like the desert landscape of Tatooine, then you’ll like this Jawa cake.
Yes, it’s a cake of a droid robber who sells them for money. Still, I like the glowing eyes though.
73. Be a real Jedi master and serve your Star Wars party guests with Yoda cake.
Immense it is. Almost life size. But undermined by Simpson mouth it is.
74. For your Rebel Alliance dessert, this R2-D2 jello will do.
Now since R2-D2 has blue on him, this jello is blue. Apparently gray and white jello don’t exist. Oh yeah, white jello does but it’s disgusting.
75. If you’re a rebel and not a fan of jello, then these Princess Leia cookies will do nicely.
Now these use chocolate mini sandwich cookies for her distinctive sticky bun hairstyle. Still, these are adorable that you can just eat them up.
76. For an easier Star Wars cake, there’s this cake depicting Obi Wan and Darth Vader’s duel at Mustafar.
Because nothing denotes a happy occasion like Obi Wan and Anakin engaged in a lightsaber duel that will result in the former cutting off his limbs and leaving him for dead on a volcanic planet. Yeah, good times.
77. Nothing makes a better Star Wars lunch than in this bento.
Now this includes a C-3PO cheese sandwich, a Stormtrooper egg, and an R2-D2 cookie. Still, seems rather healthy than some of these treats.
78. Nothing makes a great cake than seeing Luke, Leia, Han, Obi Wan, and Yoda on a rainbow star cake.
Sure it might be a cake for very young children or girls. Still, it’s so adorable if you ask me.
79. Nothing brings more balance to the Force than this Star Wars mini golf cake.
Now having Star Wars being reduced to a golf course. I like Star Wars but hate golf so not sure what to think about this.
80. Turn to the Dark Side with these Darth Vader sausage rolls.
Now these were made with a mole and look like some calzone. Still, it has a potential to cause a heart attack which I find disturbing.
81. Come to the Dark Side and feast on these Imperial Stormtrooper cookies.
So it is true, then. The Dark Side does have cookies. Too bad you won’t be able to hit anything with them in your stomach.
82. For your Rebel Alliance party, nothing can be more the star attraction than this Millennium Falcon cake.
Man this almost looks like the real thing. Thus, it is the perfect birthday cake for Han Solo.
83. For those who like droid stealing aliens, here are these Jawa cupcakes.
Wonder why they have so many Jawa treats out there? Guess that’s due to being easy to make?
84. Of course you can always make Imperial fighters with chocolate.
Now these are about the same for the Imperial fighter graham cracker and marshmallow treats. Except that they use chocolate grahams and nutella.
85. Use the Force and feast your eyes on these Star Wars sugar cookies.
Now these consist of Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, C-3PO, and R2-D2. Still, quite creative, are they not?
86. Thest Star Wars cookies will certainly show a path to the Force.
Now these consist of some of your favorite and not so favorite characters. And they even have the Millennium Falcon, Imperial Crusier, and Imperial fighter craft.
87. Now this R2-D2 cake is certainly the one you’re looking for.
Now that cake certainly looks like R2-D2 encased in wires. Still, he was such an ornery little droid who saves everyone’s ass and won’t give up.
88. For your Star Wars party, perhaps feast on these Wookiee cookies.
Man, there seems to be a lot of recipes for Wookiee cookies. out there. Wonder why.
89. Celebrate the season with these Star Wars Christmas cookies.
I have to admit, these are pretty clever. Like the one with R2-D2 covered in Christmas lights.
90. For your Star Wars party, may I recommend some C-3PO cake pops?
Yes, these are C-3PO cake pops. Yes, I know he’s a prissy droid but he and R2-D2 do seem fond of each other. And he did save everyone when the Ewoks saw him as a god.
91. Take the healthy path to the Dark Side with this carrot Darth Vader.
Whoever thought up making a carrot Darth Vader was s genius. Still, hard to imagine him as orange though.
92. Start your day with a wookiee breakfast with this bacon Chewbacca.
Now this is pretty clever if you ask me. However, it might give you an increased risk of heart disease if you’re not careful.
93. Go to the Dark Side in your Star Wars party with this Imperial star destroyer cake.
You know the kind of ship Darth Vader travels in? There’s a cake for that.
94. May the Force be with you with these lightsaber cupcakes.
Yes, these cupcakes form a lightsaber. Unfortunately, they’re all vanilla, which is too light for my taste.
95. If you liked Return of the Jedi, then you’ll like this Endor lunch.
Contains an Ewok sandwich and a Stormtrooper egg. Nevertheless, it is adorable.
96. Be your own Jedi master at your Star Wars party with Yoda guacamole dip.
Guacamole green, it is. Dip for nachos it’s for. But forget face, do not.
97. Start your day as a real Jedi master with these Yoda donuts.
Only needs donut, ears, green icing, and sprinkles, it does. But nutritional value, it has not.
98. For your Dark Side snack needs, these Death Star caramel popcorn balls will do.
Yes, these are Death Star popcorn balls with black icing on them. And yes, they might get stuff stuck in your teeth for awhile. But at least they won’t blow up a planet.
99. Nothing brings the spirit of Tatooine better than a Mos Eisely Cantina Rice Krispie treat.
Now this was definitely created by some Star Wars fan with way too much time on their hands. Don’t you agree.
100. Turn to the Dark Side at your Star Wars party with these Imperial fighter cupcakes.
And yes, they look like Imperial fighters that will destroy you if you try to blow up the Death Star. But since the creator didn’t have silver icing, they’re white.
