Millennium Falcon Cookie Cake
MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU! It’s that time of year again, and boy does it feel good! Two big disappointments in the Star Wars world for me–one, I missed the annual Star Wars convention (ugh) and two, I don’t have any Star Wars apparel. What?! That doesn’t even make sense. Oh well, at least we have the common sense and decency to celebrate today. How are we going to celebrate? We are going to have a Star Wars movie marathon (no prequels, sorry) and also play Star Wars cards! Yep, it gets nerdy around here–especially when Fit’s brother joins. Lastly, we are baking a Millennium Falcon Cookie Cake. Epic, I know. All it takes is some decent batter and the artistry of Hungry. For this Star Wars recipe, you don’t need any pre-formed molds, just a butter knife!
I have been a huge Star Wars fan my entire life, my brother and parents brought me up to breathe it in like air. So this day is always fun for us. Why not celebrate what you enjoy?

This was a really fun recipe to make and photograph. It’s also an incredibly easy recipe, with less sugar than most cookie cakes. You could also ice the cookie cake in Millennium Falcon colors to make it super authentic. It’s always fun to combine things that you love. May the 4th be with you! Are you going to celebrate?
