Happy Birthday all you Star Wars fans

Once again brought to us from GeekDad, or rather a friend of GeekDad: a cake in the shape of a Star Wars robot. I am a big enough Star Wars geek to know this is not R2-D2, but not a big enough geek to know what the name of this robot actually is. It was created for a three-year-old’s birthday, which frankly I think is a waste since no three-year-old can appreciate just how awesome that cake is. BUT, nonetheless, this is a beautiful example of tasty art inspired by geekiness and science (fiction).

To paraphrase Homer Simpson, “Hmmm, delicious robot, aughghgh *drool*.”
