The galaxy cake that's out of this world

We know there are a fair few space nuts out there and we've found just the cake for them. It's quite an accomplishment and would most certainly be a labour of love, but the good news it that it comes with instructions.

Imgur and Instagram user Pedagiggle, who apparently hails from Sydney, has posted photos of the most amazing space-themed cake, complete with its very own galaxy and the most detailed cake version of planet earth in miniature.

When a search for a galaxy-themed cake turned up nothing, Pedagiggle decided to make her own, posting "I wanted to make a galaxy/space cake that was space-y on the outside, but also space-y on the inside. I could not find a recipe so I had to improvise."

While it's certainly beautiful on the outside, the real magic happens when the cake is cut open to reveal beautifully vibrant planets set in gorgeous midnight blue. The effect is truly stunning.

 
You can try your hand at the galaxy cake yourself, as the amazing baker kindly shared the instructions on Imgur - read them here.
 
It turns out Pedagiggle is a bit of a dab hand at this sweet-making business. Check out the cookies she made below.
 
Are you tempted to have a go at the galaxy cake?
