The Dark Side of the Cake

I got another order for a Star Wars cake. I think this is my third one. Not surprising, everyone loves Star Wars! When it comes to this theme, cake ideas are endless. There's so many characters and all the movies to work with, so it can be kind of hard to narrow down a design. I did ask what the person's favorite character was and thankfully @JFuPhoLife knew... Darth Vader!

If I had the confidence that it would come out awesome, I would have made a cake in the shape of his mask. But since I wasn't sure I could do it, I decided to use a Darth Vader candle as my centerpiece.

I piped the Imperial logo on top.

Then added stars and the Star Wars logo on the sides.

The candle is super rad. Too bad I can't take credit for making it! haha
