Darth Vader cake: Life-sized Star Wars cake by Amanda Oakleaf feeds 600 fans

After the success of her Storm Trooper cake, master baker Amanda Oakleaf has created a life-size Darth Vader cake for the 15th anniversary of Star Wars fan organization the 501st Legion.

The Dark Lord cake - which also featured a light saber made out of a solid piece of watermelon flavored poured sugar - fed 600 hungry Legion members at the event at The Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando.

While a metal frame serves as the skeleton of the Darth Vader cake, ingredients includes 386 eggs, 2 gallons milk, 3.5 cups vanilla, 118 cups/ 32 lbs flour, 46 lbs sugar, 57 lbs butter and 210 lbs of our home-made marshmallow fondant.

In case you were wondering, the Sith Lord tasted predominantly of sponge cake and buttercream icing.

"Also a big thanks goes out to the 501st Legion for organizing the event and The Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, FL for being so accomodating!
