Today’s masterpiece comes from Lien of Sacramento, who surprised her fiance with this Stormtrooper groom’s cake just before their wedding in September.
Wowza. Every geek should be so lucky to have a Lien.
Check out the other Star Wars cakes here on Great White Snark.
Lien created the details of the helmet with four separate pieces of fondant. On the inside, there’s cake (duhr), a lemon-flavored treat, and Rice Krispies.
Rice Krispies seem to be pretty popular in these cakes. I wonder when some enterprising cake artisan will try an alternative like Cheerios. Or Count Chocula.
If you ask me why the cake is off-center in these photos, I’d guess it’s because looking directly at an Imperial Stormtrooper might compel you to turn over the plans stored in that R2 unit, give up the location of the secret Rebel base, swear your allegiance to the Emperor, and pee yourself a little.
And no one wants that.
Lien tells me that she has lots of Star Wars fans in her family, and she started a side business making wedding and groom’s cakes in January, so we (you and me) have other impressive Star Wars cakes to look forward to in the coming months. In the meantime, you can check out her other novelty cakes in her Flickr photo set.
