Star Wars Birthday Cake With Illuminated Lightsabers

February 9, 2016


This is the Star Wars birthday cake (Happy Birthday Alexander!) with illuminated lightsabers made by Flickr user Lorenzo Wood. It uses two Neopixels LED strips to make the lightsabers glow. They are not edible. I'm kidding, everything is edible. Those lightsabers will burn your tongue off though. What is the weirdest thing you've ever eaten before? Mine's a ceramic floor tile. I dropped a cupcake in the kitchen then got down on all fours to eat it like a dog and just kept biting.

Keep going for several more shots.




Thanks Lorenzo, fingers crossed you remember my birthday this year.

    Mmmmm... Edible LEDs... Brilliant.

  • This is so cool I don't even mind that it's another frikkin Star Wars post.

  • MustacheHam

    That is pretty sweet.

    I'm sure they've considered sanitizing the LED strips prior to placing on the cake. Sorry folks, I'm a bit of a germaphobe. >_>

  • Lorenzo Wood

    Good point. I gave them an alcohol wipe, and the LEDs are mounted on card backed with food-grade foil-lined parchment, which I also used to wrap the cable that passes to the underside.

  • MustacheHam

    ah, that's a pretty good method.
    Thanks for the response. ☺
