You don't need to travel to a galaxy far, far away to check out this awesome Star Destroyer cake replica. Modeled after the evil Empire's flagship war crafts, this impressive birthday cake was put together by Lorenzo Wood for his son Alexander's birthday.

Not only does the cake look star-destroyingly delicious, but it even lights up. The effect was accomplished by building a LED-embedded base that the cake was then placed on top of. The thrusters on the back light up too, and were accomplished by 3D printing, like so many other models these days.

If you want to attempt your own Star Destroyer cake, Wood has made the 3D files available for download from his Flickr site. The destroyer cake portion was put together by Pouchkines, which is a Surrey-based bakery. Stats for DIY Galactic Warfare Cakes Trending: Older & Mild
