We haven’t featured a good cake post here in a while, so today we’ve got a real nice one. It’s a double groomsman’s cake featuring Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi locked in a epic lightsaber battle. Created by Jen Roberts from Sweet Element (from New Jersey if you want to order up your own cake!), the cakes have realistic light-up lightsabers attached too. We almost never a see an Obi-Wan cake, so this is particularly exciting for cake geeks. Here’s a closeup on Darth:
This cake is particularly challenging, in my never-baked-a-cake-before opinion, because it’s two different characters with totally different styles. Here’s your Obi-Wan closeup:
Nice job Jen.
