Are you looking for a 3D Darth Vader?

You could do a FBCT (Frozen buttercream transfer). I have only made one FBCT and I did it with the help of these instructions. It was a Darth Vader for my DH's 30th bd.

My cake is not "decorator quality" by any means. But it was very easy for this newbie to follow the directions.

For the few I've done, I always build the facial features first out of cake - directly on the base cake. It's fairly easy - a brow line, a nose line, eyes, etc. Anyway, after building the facial stuff, allow to set-up and then overlay the fondant. Use your fingers to smooth the fondant around the features - then pipe in the details.
