I'm making a Darth Vader cake and have a shaped pan to make everything easier. This will be sitting on top of a 14" round. I was originally going to have the smaller vader cake on top of the round, but then I got the idea to make a candy plaque using the pan, which I did today. I was just going to make the plaque for his facial mask and still bake the cake to make his helmet and all fuller, setting the plaque over the face area. Now I'm not so sure.

I did the plaque rather shallow, so it's not as deep as it would be if I'd made a cake, so his entire helmet isn't included. I could redo the plaque and fill chocolate all the way to the rims of the pan, but would that make the plaque too heavy?
