Star Wars Groom Cakes

This trio of awesome Star Wars cakes courtesy of Jen at Sweet Element Cakes, who is also on Twitter at @SweetElement

What happens when a couple loves their personalized, World of Warcraft groom’s cake SO MUCH, that they can’t bear to serve it?

Well,  when the cake was created by an evil cake overlord, they can get it preserved. For real.

“Foopmallet” gained immortality 1 month after he was created, and the whole process is documented here.

We love challenges!
