Cups For The Empire, Stormtrooper-Inspired Coffee Mugs


Inspired by the elegant minimalism of Imperial Stormtroopers, Swedish artist Eszter Imre created a series of coffee cups.

Cups For The Empire is a set of porcelain coffee mugs and espresso cups with a Stormtrooper’s helmet in mind. The horizontal black stripe and the cups’ curves mimics those found on the trooper’s head.

The best part, is that at the bottom of each piece of drinkware, is an Imperial logo. Imperialism… good to the last drop.

The Millennium Falcon Cake Pan’s Got It Where It Counts


If you’re looking to impress at the next bake sale, or have a few hungry wookies coming over, there’s the Millennium Falcon Cake Pan.

The 10¾” x 14″ x 2¼ silicone pan will help form any cake or enormous baked good into Han Solo’s ride. Make one to help take out all the evil cupcakes. You’re all clear to bake, kid.

Baked Potauntauns Smell Great On The Outside


The Empire Strikes Back, the planet Hoth… Luke Skywalker narrowly escapes becoming a Wampa’s dinner, and has nearly frozen to death. Han Solo, needing a warm place to store Luke for the night, slices open his loyal Tauntaun and sticks Luke inside.

Finally, this fateful scene can be reenacted at the dinner table with Baked Potauntauns. The indiegogo project includes parts that’ll turn any baked potato into a Tauntaun. The included Lightsaber Butter Knife will help slice the beast open.

And, the best part, a butter mold that’ll help create a near-death and meltable Luke to place inside. Surely, the finished Baked Potauntaun will smell good on the inside and outside.

Although the campaign to mass produce the Potauntauns is nowhere close to its goal [c’mon people], you can find out more here.

Jabba’s Bounty, Pop Culture Characters Frozen In Chocolate Carbonite


Artist Henry Hargreaves, via his latest project Jabba’s Bounty, created two things. One, an alternate universe where Jabba The Hutt puts out a bounty on various pop culture characters. The other one is those same characters turned into edible carbonite chocolate bars.

Using some of his favorite childhood action figures, Hargreaves created molds, poured in some milk chocolate, and applied edible silver paint for the full effect.

Karma tells us that we should be seeing a Boba Fett bar. But, according to the Sarlac, he doesn’t taste so good.
