So while trawling the internet for information for our previous post, we came across what can only be described as one of the best things ever!
Now, we are fans of Star Wars and will probably anger many people when we say that we are lovers of the originals (Sorry!). It’s not that we don’t appreciate the newer films but memories from our childhood of box set marathons watching Star Wars (now known as Episode IV: A New Hope), The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, fill us with a nostalgia that those watching the newer films for the first time will be feeling as they grow older.
As we all know the newest instalment, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is just days away and there has been a burst of products that have appeared on shelves across the world. I do believe however that Lakeland has some of the best offerings out there..especially for bakers!
This is the R2-D2 cake mould – how awesome is this?! And who would’t love to receive this cake on their special occasion?!
The detailing looks pretty spot on and i’m sure with the right tools and a bit of skill you can make a pretty amazing replica. There is no recipe on offer but reviewers are suggesting an 8-9 egg cake mix – with a little tweaking to get the perfect ratio of ingredients and LOTS of cake release spray this should turn out a peach!
Other Star Wars offerings by Lakeland include a Millennium Falcon cake Pan, decorative cake dusting toppers and light saber ice lolly trays – the list goes on! So, if you are a bit of a fan and love baking these are perfect gifts, drop a few hints and you never know what you might find in your stocking!
P.S They also have some really yummy recipes on their site, so it’s a bakers haven!
