The most incredible desserts are not always in a galaxy far, far away. You can find your galactic inspiration right here. In honour of #MaytheFourth, we’ve rounded up a list of sweet treats featuring all your favourite Star Wars characters. From cakes, muffins and popsicles to cookies, there’s plenty in here to give you envy or inspiration to host a special Star Wars-themed dessert party! So as the hardcore Star Wars fan would say, may the force be with you!


Can’t decide between BB-8, Snowtrooper and Chewbacca? You don’t have to. No matter what you are celebrating, nothing spells ‘happy’ better than a tiered cake, especially if you’re a die-hard Star Wars fan. 

Cake Pops

These Star Wars-themed cake pops are a treat. Decadent and adorable, both kids and adults are sure to love these in their favourite character. Make each of your cake pops stand out with bold colours and textures in resemblance to Princess Leia, Yoda, Snowtrooper, Chewbacca, Darth Vader and C-3PO!


These mini-cupcakes are the best to keep hunger at bay. Even if your fondant painting skills aren’t quite up to par, you’ll be left with a great tasting dessert.  


These adorable Star Wars themed brownies are too pretty to be eaten. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can give these brownie recipes a go; all you’ve got to do is decorate them accordingly.


Whatever muffin recipe you go along with, you can always get creative when it comes to decorating these little munchies. Choose from Star Wars characters, planets, ships, vehicles or droids, and get the movie marathon started.

Ice Popsicles

Who’s going to say no to popsicles that look exactly like Darth Vader? Count us out!


While these French confections may not be everyone’s cup of tea, much like Jedi skills, they’re worth the effort and time.
