Yolanda Gampp is the expert behind online baking show How To Cake It, posting new videos to her YouTube channel every Tuesday.

To celebrate the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Gampp assumed the character of "Princess Landa" and put serious pressure on parents of all Star Wars fans by creating the BB8 cake of their dreams.

But if you think you're brave enough to attempt it, this is a cake that's guaranteed to make a hell of an impact.
