A very short time ago, in Boston, Massachusetts, hungry Arisia Sci-Fi Convention attendees chowed down on what its creators described as "the world’s most epic cake."
According to Tyler Oakleaf, co-owner of Amanda Oakleaf Cakes, it took a staff of ten to assemble the 6 foot 4 inch edible Stormtrooper using 208 eggs, 20 pounds of butter, 140 pounds of sugar, 35 pounds of flour, 55 pounds of marshmallows and 30 pounds of Rice Krispies Treats.
While the 300 pound cake might have served as late morning snack for Jabba the Hutt, it took nearly 600 conventioneers to take down the cake (which was donated by the bakery) at $15 a pop, or roughly thirty Galactic Standard Credits*.

"That's no cake"!
Only the legs were Rice Krispies. (I'm not sure why.) The torso and the top of the head were solid cake (aside from the support stands).
Adam, I own a bakery, the legs are rice crispy treats because the cake part is too heavy to support itself, the rice crispy treats are stiff when dry and can take the weight of the cake body. A very nice cake, all the way around!
Was it served with blue milk?
Awesome! I hope so.
Funny, in all the years of eating cake I've had, I don't recall a single one being made with Rice Crispies treats. Then again, this was a Dark Side cake......
Just to clarify, they weren't charging $15 a slice, or anything for that matter. That's just the cost of the cake divided by the number of servings. And had I known it was a $15 slice of cake, I'd have savored it longer. Was quite tasty.
I'm sorry, but this is no "cake". A cake is a cake. This is a giant rice krispy treat with a thick skeleton, a little cake, and frosting.
I was there. It was built like a standard wedding cake, with many layers supported by horizontal platforms held up by a vertical iron truss. The detail was well sculpted. Nice job all around. Check out the photo gallery on the bakery's web site for some other nice work. (I have no connection with them.)
Don't be so proud of this pastryogical terror you've created. The ability to bake a cake is insignificant next to the power of the force.
What do you think is holding up a cake like that?
My comment got no love so far, but I've got to hand it to you... your's was funny!
OK, the lady is pretty but why not show more of the actual cake????
Aren't you a little tall for a pastry?
Wish I could've been there this year. :-(
I was there and saw the cake (I had a panel to go to and missed getting a piece of it).
"You must repair him! Sir, if any of my circuits or gears will help, I'll gladly donate them!"
Shut up goldenrod...
This is not the cake you're looking for...
HA! Good one!
Wow, that's really cool. What an immense undertaking — congrats to the builders of this amazing cake!
I miss Duff Goldman and the 'Ace of Cakes' team. Sorry, but 'The Cake Boss' is just third-string benchwarmers.
George Lucas is going to be suing somebody....
This reminds me of an episode from The Cake Boss. http://wp.me/p1se8R-2cU I've never seen a cake this big but I certainly would love to!
I also am a baker, This cake took alot of materials ,plus 10 people working two weeks to make, so yes, it was 9,000. It was very well made, this kind of workmanship takes alot of hours and is costly. I don't work at Amanda Oakleaf's Bakery. Great Job guys!!
I have a bad feeling about this...
This just in: The six hundred conventioners was really just Paula Deen and her medical team.
Paula Deen endorses this cake.
Kudos to you, I award you ten internets.
