This has to be, without a shred of doubt the most insane Stormtrooper we’ve ever had the pleasure of laying eyes on.  No, it’s not a costume.  In fact, it’s a cake.  Yes, C-A-K-E!

It was made for the nerds at the Arisia Sci-Fi Convention in Boston, MA.  It stands at 6′ 4″ tall and weighs a whopping 300lbs, which doesn’t include the rice krispy legs that the cake itself is perched on.  The maker, Oak Leaf Cake had to invent new cake making methods to erect this confectioneur’s delight and it took their entire team of 10 to assemble and build it over the course of two weeks (the cake portion wasn’t added until 2 days before it was served).  The cake was transported in pieces and built on site in a modular fashion.  Just about everything was edible, with the exception of the shelves and the home made skeletal system (and maybe the arms).

Who knows how much it cost, but you can bet it wasn’t cheap.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
