I have a little confession about my family.  We’re a bunch of geeks.  Geeks to the core.  I’m a Disney fanatic sprinkled with a little Harry Potter and drizzled heavily with I Love Lucy.  My husband is a Trekkie who’s obsessed with Star Wars all while being a loyal Battle Star Galactica fan.  But geeks are awesome. So while October comes to a close, this Star Wars Sarlacc Bundt Cake is for you geeks!

Star Wars Sarlacc Caramel Bundt Cake dusted with Biscoff Cookie Crumbs and drizzled with Salted Caramel Sauce - www.yummycrumble.comSo for all you non-geeks, a Sarlacc is a horrific plant-like omnivorous creature found across the galaxy.  It’s got huge tentacles and a beak and was in the famous pit scene from Return of the Jedi.  This is where Bobba Fett met his maker.  This thing gave me the heebie jeebies the first time I saw Return of the Jedi, so this is my little tribute to him.  I know the Sarlacc traditionally does not have teeth on his beak, but  I just couldn’t resist.  Teeth made of frosting is my new favorite thing.

Would this trigger PTSD for Luke?  Maybe…But I could totally hear him say,

“But I don’t remember the Sarlacc ever having teeth…”

And all the Star Wars trolls nod and clap in agreement.  Hey guys, just think of this Sarlacc as the suped up version with CGI teeth.  I know, CGI is a sore subject.  Either way, this guy is super delicious.  You should make him now.  Teeth or no teeth.

  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup ground Biscoff Cookie Crumbs
  • ¼ tsp baking powder

  • 8 tbsp butter, melted and cooled (I used unsalted, but salted would work too)

  • Your favorite vanilla frosting (I used this salted caramel buttercream)
  • Handful of raw slivered almonds
Instructions
Caramel Bundt Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and grease your bundt cake pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the four, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. With an electric mixer and paddle attachment, beat the soften butter with both sugars until light and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs one at a time until each is well mixed. Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  5. Add vanilla and mix some more.
  6. On low, add the flour mixture alternating between the dry ingredients and the buttermilk. Start with the flour and end with the flour. Mix until just combined.
  7. Pour into bundt cake pan and bake for 35-45 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Cool in pan for about 20 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
Biscoff Madeleines
  1. Start by setting oven to 375F.
  2. Lightly grease and flour your madeleine pan.
  3. In a food processor, blend package of Biscoff Cookies into crumbs. Set aside
  4. Beat eggs and sugar together until thick.
  5. Beat in vanilla and salt.
  6. Sift flour, Biscoff Cookie crumbs,cinnamon, and baking powder into bowl and fold together until mixed.
  7. Stream in melted butter while mixing on low.
  8. Spoon a tablespoon of batter into each cavity.
  9. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Be careful to not over bake.
  10. Allow to cool for a few minutes before removing.
  11. Make sure pan has cooled before baking the next batch.
Cookie Tentacles
  1. Pour some of the madeleine batter into a small ziplock bag and snip off the corner.
  2. Pipe tentacles on parchment paper or a greased cookie sheet. Don't make them too thick because the batter spreads as it bakes. One thin line should do.
  3. Bake at 375F until golden brown.
Assembly
  1. Once the cake has cooled, drizzle the entire cake with caramel sauce.
  2. Cover the cake with the Biscoff Cookie Crumbs.
  3. Using the raw almonds, create the spikes or teeth on the interior walls of the pit.
  4. Fill the pit with frosting and cover with the Biscoff Cookie Crumbs.
  5. Using a small piping tip (or bag with tip snipped off) create teeth along the outer edge of two madeleine cookies.
  6. Place inside the pit.
  7. Surround the beak with the cookie tentacles.

 Star Wars Sarlacc Caramel Bundt Cake dusted with Biscoff Cookie Crumbs and drizzled with Salted Caramel Sauce - www.yummycrumble.comThe caramel bundt cake is super moist and delicious so it really didn’t need a lot of frosting.  I drizzled the entire cake with caramel sauce to make the Biscoff Cookie Crumbs stick.  Then with almonds, I stuck them around the walls of the interior to create those spikes or teeth.   I piped in some frosting to make the madeleine beak stay in place, and his tentacles were the madeleine batter baked on a cookie sheet.  I piped teeth on the madeleines like I did for my Monster Strawberry Cupcakes.

    • Kathleen Siegle says:

      Thank you so much Elizabeth :) I wasn’t really into Star Wars until my husband came along. He transformed me into the geek I am today!

  11. What a great looking cake!
    I might just try to make this for my nephew’s birthday. He loves Star Wars.

  12. So cool & looks delicious!

  13. Kathleen THIS IS THE BEST THING IN THE HISTORY OF EVER!!!!! My husband was next to me when I saw the link for this and I just pointed to it, “check this out!!!” It was even better than I anticipated. Star Wars for life!!!

  14. Well, my husband wants this for his birthday, so I guess I’ll be trying it in January. Looks great!

  15. the star wars geek inside me is smiling right now. Awesome job.

  16. I don’t have a Madeiline pan, is there something else I could use to get the same giant worm mouth effect? I was thinking of piping out some thicker oval pieces the same way as you made the tentacles.

    • Kathleen Siegle says:

      Hey Caitlin. I actually suggest using a short bread cookie dough recipe to make the beaks instead. Here is one from Martha Stewart. If you piped the madeleine dough I think it would spread way too much on the cookie pan and not hold its shape. So when you’re piping it for the tentacles, be careful to pipe it very thinly because it will spread a good amount. Also if you don’t want to bake the beak pieces with shortbread dough, maybe buy some Milano sandwich cookies. They have the same shape. Let me know what you decide. I want to know how it turns out! You can tag it #yummycrumble in instagram so I can see it!

  17. Just found this on Pinterest. I would say, with the teeth, that it reminds me more of Shai Hulud (the giant sand worms) in Dune.

    “Bless the Maker and His water. Bless the coming and the going of Him. May His passage cleanse the world. May He keep the world for His people.” – Freman prayer to Shai Hulud

    I might be a geek too. :)

  18. WOW! Your designs are AMAZING! You truly have a talent for creating beautiful treats. Thank you for sharing.
