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*.

But apparently he and 'Pete on the Street' reporter Pete Dominic are in there all the time quaffing fancy coffee beverages and chortling at the rest of us office-less Flavia chuggers. It's okay...it's okay. We take our java like we deal with our emotional wounds from imagined slights by our more glamorous co-workers: totally freaking bitterly.

Seriously - call us. We've never met you, Mr. King, but a decent Americano would totally zazz up our work day.
