Let me disclaim this post by saying that a chimp with one arm and a sneezing fit can decorate a cake more adeptly than I can.
But the part of my brain that makes jokes at the expense of others (who are clearly more talented than I am) is as artistic as they come. We all have our talents.
5) VADER COOKIE CAKE
Apparently this Vader attended the Hogwarts School of Jedi Training because–if I’m not mistaken–that’s a magic wand he’s holding, not a light saber.
4) GOOEY VADER CAKE
This is actually quite a reasonable facsimile of Darth Vader’s visage. (Which makes sense, since the creator used a mask from Wal-Mart as a mold.) Unfortunately, it appears to have been fashioned out of hot, gooey tar, which is quite inedible.
3) SOFT VADER CAKE
This hand-sculpted Vader cake makes me feel all sentimental. I imagine this is what his reflection looks like when he gazes into a reflecting pool. After playing with his puppy in a field of daffodils.
2) BIG-BROW VADER CAKE
Who knew that all you’d have to do to make Darth Vader appear even more sinister is give him a protruding, Cro-Magnon-style brow? Grr.
