The holiday season is a time of gatherings and get-togethers, where friends and family unite to share warm feelings and eat a lot of food. For many of these engagements, you’re expected to contribute something to the spread. Anyone can make a salad, buy some rolls, or slap together a nice lasagna. Why not do something different, make an impression, and create a lasting memory, one with your own personal stamp on it? One way to accomplish this is to show up with a cake shaped like the Sarlacc Pit from Return of the Jedi.
How do I fashion a cake into a replica of the Great Pit of Carkoon, you might ask? Follow these simple instructions and you’ll be on your way in no time.
The best part of this whole endeavor is how easy it all is. And you get to crush cookies in a blender. Doesn’t that sound like fun? Chocolate-covered gummi-worm tentacles, split-open strawberry mouths, almond sliver teeth, and any spare Boba Fett action figures you may have cluttering up the joint, those will really complete the look.
This dessert is tasty, aesthetically pleasing, and sure to make an impression at your next dinner party. Sure, the impression that you make may be that of the weird kid who still plays with action figures and spends too much time making Star Wars-themed bundt cakes. Then again, if your friends and family know you at all, that’s probably the reputation you already have.
