Writing for this site, I’ve seen some pretty damn incredible popular culture inspired cakes. Some of those are made by professionals, others are made by dedicated family members who will go to great lengths just to see a smile on their loved ones face!
But I can honestly say that I haven’t seen anything quite as impressive as this R2-D2 birthday cake which as well as being an awesome recreation of that loveable droid, also projects a hologram of Princess Leia delivering that infamous message! It was created by Marc Freilich for his son Alexander’s 6th birthday party and we have to say that he is one incredibly lucky kid!!
Underneath R2-D2’s outer layer of blue and white fondant, you’ve got layer upon layer of delicious chocolate cake, but the fondant also hides a pico projector that connects to an external laptop which plays Princess Leia’s renowned call for help to Obi-Wan Kenobi and then delivers a personal Happy Birthday message to little Alexander in the classic Star Wars font! Does it get any better than this?
