How many sci-fi geeks does it take to devour a 6-foot Stormtrooper cake? 600, apparently! Attendees at last weekend's Arisa Sci-Fi convention were joined by the life-size Star Wars character made of 300 lbs of delicious cake mix and icing. Carefully crafted by a nine-person team at Amanda Oakleaf Cakes, the delightful desert was meticulously designed and assembled over two weeks, and thanks to the huge reception of awaiting fans, not a slice of the evil Star Wars soldier went to waste.
This enormously sweet offering was dished up after some serious strategic planning. It looks like Amanda’s team really went to town and faced the challenge, developing new methods of putting the cake together in modular pieces. They even formed the character’s legs from Rice Krispies to make sure the figure kept his balance. What an awesome design!
Although it probably all got very messy as the cake was carved up into slices, these photos show just how much effort went into making the dark character a sensation. And seeing as everyone took a bite from the diminishing Stormtrooper you could say he got his “just desserts”.
