Spectacular Time-Lapse Shows A Millennium Falcon Cake Being Built [WATCH]

Millenium-Falcon-Cake

Earlier today, five new posters for Star Wars: The Force Awakens dropped showcasing all the major characters for the upcoming space opera. What began in 1977 grew into a timeless saga of good vs. evil in a galaxy far far away.

One of the biggest things we’re stoked about is seeing the Millennium Falcon once again.

It’s been years since the last Star Wars film and decades since the infamous spacecraft soared on the big screen. No, we’re not counting that depressing cameo in Revenge of the Sith.

Pastry chef Sarah Strain, in an impressive feat, was able to recreate the beloved ship as a cake. Now, we’ve seen Millennium Falcon cakes before, and this is by far one of the most impressive.

Watch this amazing time-lapse of the cake-building process. We didn’t think we could be any more hyped for the new film, yet here we are.

Millennium Falcon Cake

A wife went above and beyond in this cake creation for husband. A relatively anatomically correct recreation of the Millenium Falcon in cake form is what we’re looking at. Light speed on your birthday? Let’s do it! (Thx Reddit/cpshoeler)
