DARTH VADER

Shape was cut from sheet cake. Iced in chocolate buttercream colored black. Raised details made with black colored buttercream "fondant". Painted highlights with white coloring. Face mask & hand were built up with cake. Light Saber was a 10 inch red glow stick ( my wife's idea :) ). Flames were piped from yellow/red colored buttercream.

That is just awesome! The details are great and the white really helps because there is so much black. Tell your wife great idea with the glow stick!

I love this cake! Made a version of it this weekend for a little boy's b-day, although it couldn't compare to yours! I used a chocolate ganache that has been whipped just a little - that way it has the nice sheen of ganache like darth vader's suit but spreads more like buttercream. Thanks for sharing!!
