Life-Size Stormtrooper Cake [Pictures]

This, ladies and gentlegeeks, is a life-size Stormtrooper cake. Yep, these 300 pounds of stormtrooping deliciousness were made by the fine folks over at the Amanda Oakleaf Cakes bakery especially for the hungry patrons at the Arisia Sci-Fi Convention in Boston, MA.

The building of the Stormtrooper cake was an epic event in and of itself. It took our entire wonderful crew of ten people two full weeks of to put this guy together (although the cake wasn’t added until 2 days before it was to be served). Along the way we even had to invent completely new cake making methods so it could be put together modularly onsite, hold its fondant over long vertical stretches, and stand on two beautifully sculpted Rice Kripsy legs that supported his 300 lb body –all while keeping every bit of cake tasting light, fluffy, and delicious!
