Cakes don’t last long in my company. Seriously — there’s nothing better than sinking your teeth into soft, sweet food, but a Welsh baker has created a cake that is just too amazing to eat.
Vicki Smith (whose name you might remember after she stole all the headlines for her amazing sloth cake) is back again, and this time she’s created a 20-hour, Star Wars-inspired masterpiece — of Jedi Master Yoda.

According to the Daily Post, it was crafted as part of the project, Star Wars: The Bakers Strike Back. The project saw 40 bakers create various characters from the franchise in celebration of the film Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The cake — made from chocolate, sugar paste, vodka, sponge and candy floss — is truly a work of art thanks to its intricate detailing, and it would look right at home with the rest of our Star Wars memorabilia. But the thing that makes it even more awesome is the fact that it’s been completed with a lightsaber (which is unfortunately the only part of the creation that is not edible).
Speaking of her creation, Smith revealed that Yoda was always going to be the character she would choose.
“Yoda is the first thing I think of when it comes to Star Wars. I was excited to make him as he’s so iconic and it presented me with new challenges,” Smith said, Daily Mail reports.
“Because Yoda’s so wrinkly, I didn’t have to worry about getting the icing smooth. It made a nice change using foil and letting him be as wrinkly as I wanted to.
“He took about 20 hours to make but I can’t bring myself to eat him.”
So where is he now?
“He’s currently on display next to my Christmas tree, so I’ll switch on his lightsaber when I put the tree lights on,” she told the publication.
