Top Five Awful Darth Vader Cakes – Geeky Cake of the Week

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


Seemingly harmless. Especially with those two candles sticking out of his sternum.

No, wait, kid, don’t touch that mask!

Well, there goes my appetite. Who wants the first piece? You want scar, or no scar with that?

    No Luke, I AM your dessert.

    Gooey Mask is probably covered in chocolate melted with cream then poured over the cake. It needed a few more layers of it, and a little more time to set before sticking the little silver balls in his breathing mask. That kind of frosting has a special name, but all I’m coming up with in my damaged and berserk brain cells is gnash.

    I love the AC-DC shirt one of the kids is wearing in the last picture.

    Karen, are you sure it’s not gmush?

    the frosting Karen is referring to is called ganache!

    (BTW… Cro-magnon Vader is my creation… thanks for the laugh!)
