HOWTO make a scrumptious life-sized Stormtrooper cake

Oakleaf Cakes, creator of the life-sized Stormtrooper cake we featured yesterday, have a post up detailing the fella's construction, right down to his rice krispie skeleton.

The building of the Stormtrooper cake was an epic event in and of itself. It took our entire wonderful crew of ten people two full weeks of to put this guy together (although the cake wasn’t added until 2 days before it was to be served). Along the way we even had to invent completely new cake making methods so it could be put together modularly onsite, hold its fondant over long vertical stretches, and stand on two beautifully sculpted Rice Kripsy legs that supported his 300 lb body –all while keeping every bit of cake tasting light, fluffy, and delicious!

We built a life-size Stormtrooper and he was delicious.



  1. Am I terrible for not really considering rice-krispie-and-fondant sculptures ‘cakes’? Fondant is usally not a repeatable edible.

    Of course, that brings up the question of what defines ‘cake’?

    1. Since the fondant is marshmallow fondant it is really like eating marshmallow covered rice krispie treats -aka rice krispie treats.  And that’s only below the knees.
