This weekend John and I are attending Star Wars Celebration here in Orlando, so of course I have to honor the occasion the best way I know how:
...by mercilessly mocking Darth Vader cakes.
This one, for example, looks like a codfish.
Granted, I don't actually know what a codfish looks like, but I imagine it must be kind of silly and wet-looking, which makes them practically twins.
Wait - I just realized there's no "t" in "scruffy-looking nerf herder."
Ok, it fits it to a "scruffy-looking"
When I was a kid I found this nifty stone-texture spray paint at Home Depot, and proceeded to paint everything I could get my hands on, including my room's wall switches, door handles, and lamps. My parents were lucky people, y'all. Anyway, apparently this baker had the same fascination:
But at least this one is icing. So you really can't take it for granite.
Speaking of stone, I'm not sure what happened to this Darth:
...but it looks like he's having an avalanche.
And here's the one they found flattened under the rubble:
This is technically the best Darth of the bunch, and that's really saying something:
Something about sweat, and tears, and purple poo.
(Oh, you've never eaten a bunch of black fondant before? Then never mind.)
I saved my favorite for last, of course.
("I've got a bad feeling about this...")
You know what? That makes me sad.
Oh, and if you're also at Star Wars Celebration this weekend, be sure to look for me and John! I think you're going to like the little pins I'm giving away:
Hey Heather S., Arielle C., Luci, Brenda J., Clare, Leah S., & Julie Anne D., who's your daddy?
