AT- AT cake!!!!!!!!

Oh man, words fail me to describe the awesomeness....
from Sin Desserts -

"The legs and base [of the Star Wars AT-AT cake] are wood, covered in gum paste and the cake is the head and body. I was in charge of baking, covering it in fondant and covering the legs with the gum paste. Phil was in charge of the design and base, Dave was in charge of color, Cutter was in charge of accessories (ie: guns), Coryndon was in charge of landscape and Joe was in charge of background. Then they all got together and painted on the details."

"The cake was a new cake for us… the Guiness Cake. and the background was hand painted by Joe. All of the people involved in the cake are artists of some sort and it took (everyone combined) about 60 hours (background painting, leg and body cut outs, covering, cake/covering, assembly and painting) so we figured the cake to come in some where around $5,000 at the low end. I’m sure the bakery could do it faster and cheaper if we ever got a second order for it, but it would still be a bit pricy and it wouldn’t have a custom hand painted background!"
