This week’s cake comes to us by way of Star Wars enthusiasts with delightful (read: fun-to-mock) British accents.
Helen of The Cake Company–located in the nowhere-but-in-England towne of Warrington Cheshire–was kind enough to share the details on this beautiful three-tier chocolate Star Wars wedding cake, featuring fully-edible “modeling icing” toppers depicting Luke, Leia, C3P0, and R2-D2. And a super-gay, Sea-Green-colored lightsaber.
(Yes, “Sea Green.” Check your Crayola crayon box, people.)
The Cake Company has made a name for itself creating unusual wedding cakes and toppers. Some of them have been featured on the British television soap, Coronation Street. As Helen puts it:
This one however was all the more unusual as the bride insisted on having Luke and Leia as the bride and groom, which is a strange request as they are brother and sister.
Well, you might think incest is “strange” in your country, Helen, but here in the U.S.A., thanks to brilliant auteurs like Jerry Springer, Esq. and Maury Alexander Povich , we call it “entertainment.” Yeah. Who’s the insolent, upstart colony, now, eh?
The bride of the wedding had this cake made as a surprise for the groom, a “huge Star Wars fan.”
[The bride] was very nervous as she wasn’t sure the older members of the wedding party would understand.
What’s not to understand about the unrequited, star-crossed love between a boy and his sister, Helen?
