Nothing brings this geek girl joy quite like a well-executed Star Wars cake. Then again, nothing tickles my fancy the way a Star Wars Wreck does, either. So today, let's double our pleasure (double our fun) by taking a look at a mix of both.

Of course, most Vader cake would make the dark lord proud, what with their lethal amounts of black icing and overall evil appearance:

"Come to the dark side, or I'll turn your poop green for a week."
Cake Lava really knows how to make the Death Star look goooood (left), while this other bakery makes it look, well, confused (right):
(Yes, yes. I KNOW this isn't the Death Star. [Although why R2D2 has a smashed penguin on his head is beyond me.])
So remember: There is a RIGHT way to make a Star Wars cake:

And a very, very, VERY wrong way:
Now go forth, my cake-loving friends, and, of course...
may the horce be with you.
