We’ve got big news for Star Wars fans and cake fans and even bigger news for Star Wars Cakes fans!
Earlier this year, Food Network’s “Buddy Vs Duff 2” final challenge, Buddy “The Cake Boss” and Duff “The Ace of Cakes” Goldman were summoned by stormtroopers from a galaxy far, far away. Kirstin Makela, Art Director with Walt Disney Imagineering, commissioned the award-winning bakers to create their biggest, most elaborate cakes yet to celebrate May the 4th – also known as Star Wars Day.
Buddy, Duff and their respective teams explored Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at the Disneyland Resort for some inspiration. They experienced Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, as well as Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, built custom lightsabers and droids, and ended the night with a meal inside Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo.
The judges reveal the winner of this year’s competition inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, hosted by the legendary Billy Dee Williams. Also on hand were Andi Gutierrez and Anthony Carboni from The Star Wars Show, the only monthly 20-minute(ish) look at all-things Star Wars, featuring news, behind-the-scenes features and special guests.
You’ve got to tune in to the 90-minute finale on Food Network Sunday, May 3 at 9pm | 8c to see these galactic, mouthwatering masterpieces!
