3D Darth Vadar

This is the cake that I made for my nephew's 18th birthday. He's a huge Vadar fan...and I'm happy to say that he loved it! The torso is four 8" rounds of cake, carved to the torso shape. The legs, head & shoulders are RCT and the arms I built out of some spare colored fondant since I was having difficulties getting the RCT to stick to the plastic wrapped PVC internal structure. Next time I'll try modeling chocolate! This is only my 20th fondant covered cake...so while he's not perfect, I was pretty happy with it. I did cheat on the light saber, which I had planned to use poured Isomalt to make but ran out of time. The cape I made out of fabric. From head to top of board, Darth stood 36" tall.
