How do you “wow” a crowd of 600 Sci-Fi enthusiasts with average gastronomic appreciation? You impress them with this? For the Arisia Sci-Fi Convention in Boston, specialists at Amanda Oakleaf Cakes created a life-size Star Wars Stormtrooper cake to greet (and feed) event goers. At a height of 6 feet and 4 inches, the stood upright and came in around 300 lbs. To start with, workers traced out a sketch from a Stormtrooper cardboard cut out. Then, pvc tubing and metal wire frame came together to form its skeletal structure. 10 artisans in the course of 2 weeks added all details from helmet to blaster. With final applications of icing and Rice Crispy, the Vanguard of The Empire was done. While its a bit unsettling to see its innards sliced away at first, the cake’s delectable taste drown out any hesitations. via: likeCOOL
