We used neopixels cut from the strip to create lighting effects in this amazing scifi cake made by Dinkydoodle designs

From his blog:

This is the cake that the flux capacitor ended up in, it takes elements from lots of scifi series and shows. There are lots more pictures over on facebook. Halfway down the cake you’ll notice some coloured pillars between the layers, we realised that we could turn the transparent cake frame into mini lightsabers so I illuminated them with neopixels and made them turn on/off over time.
