Millennium Falcon Cake Can't Hyperspace, But is Best Birthday Cake Ever

Illustration for article titled Millennium Falcon Cake Cant Hyperspace, But is Best Birthday Cake Ever

This Millennium Falcon was never going to do the Kessel Run... but it might just qualify as the most awesome birthday cake ever made. I mean, look at the detail! Made by Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, one lucky guy received it this weekend... and can you guess his generous brother's profession? Yup, you were close: it's as a sysadmin. I just hope he appreciated it, since I know an armload of people who'd weep with joy if this arrived on their birthday. Particularly if it were cunningly combined with LED birthday candles for special lighting effects. There's another pic below, if you haven't seen enough.

Now all I need to do is remind my wife of this posting when my birthday comes a little nearer... [LaughingSquid]

This is fantastic. I met Duff a few months ago and we talked shop awhile (I also make sculptural cakes, but not professionally) - he genuinely "wow"ed at my Darth Vader cake for my girlfriend ( [i27.photobucket.com] - life size cake, pardon crappy cellphone pic) but he wins with this, the MilFalc is stunning. Duff is a great guy, too.

I try to go as close to 100% edible as possible with my cakes, I know Duff uses a lot of "hardware" - but I'm thinking it's possible that the client only paid for XYZ servings of actual cake, so that's where the difference comes in? Wood scrap and screws are cheap!

And I'll see if I can sneak a taste-test piece of my friend's cake from Duff when her wedding anniversary comes around and she gets her very own Charm City Cake - a surprise for her hubby =0)
