Today we're going on our very own Galaxy Quest, cake fans, only this one won't include ANY forms of rudimentary lathes. (HA NERD JOKE)
No, instead I found 10 of my favorite galaxy and night sky cakes, so if you have a problem with black icing, green tongues, and/or technicolor poo, abandon hope, all ye who enter here.
Now, ON TO THE PRETTIES.

It's like someone wrapped a photograph over the cake - bu that's all hand-painted!
I like how this wedding cake combined 3D trees around the edges:

Plus the silhouettes are a sweet touch.
Here comes a technicolor galaxy inspired by the Hubble telescope images:
While this one captures the bright shimmery lights of the Aurora Borealis:

Here's one with a gothic flair:

I like the black-and-white abstract feel, and I never thought I'd say this, but those candles are the perfect topper. So cool!
A sweet and simple one-tier with the most gorgeous crescent moon on top:

Look at that fun texture! Like a bunch of buttons! I bet they crunch like meringue, too.
This one literally writes the cake's message in the stars:

And we can't talk about starry nights without including the most famous one:
[By Breyanne's Sweets in Texas]
There are a lot of Starry Night cakes out there, but I fell for the texture on this one: almost matte, like chalk pastels! But it's hand-painted buttercream, if you can believe it. Absolutely stunning work.
Since space is wibbly wobbly, timey-wimey stuff, it only makes sense to add a TARDIS topper:

The lights are a brilliant touch!
And finally, another out-of-this-world cake... of the whole solar system:
[By Dolce Dita in France]
I have the irresistible urge to pop the whole moon into my mouth y'all. Maybe Mars, too.
But not Uranus.
Happy Sunday! Hope these made you smile!
